Ford will be using the Geneva Auto Show to debut a new high performance diesel engine and new titanium trim packages. Available on the Ford Mondeo, Ford S-MAX and Ford Galaxy, the new 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi performance diesel produces 175 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Co-developed by Ford and PSA Peugeot Citroen, the engine has been specifically calibrated to provide performance, quietness and smoothness. On the performance side, all Ford models equipped with the new engine will be able to reach 100 km/h from a standing start in less than ten seconds.
The new Titanium S series for Mondeo and S-MAX offer a sporty new look and improved handling. Body color side skirts and a rear spoiler come standard on the S-MAX and are offered on the Mondeo. The lower grille comes with a contrasting color of silver or anthracite, depending on which body color is chosen. Mondeo models have a unique honeycomb design for the upper and lower portions of the grille, new fog lights, and a body-color rear bumper skirt with integrated diffuser in a contrasting color. Both models also come equipped with a sports suspension that lowers the ride height between 10-15mm and offer harder damper settings, stiffer springs and suspension bushes. On the inside piano black trim, brushed aluminum surfaces, and new a 'Carbotex Sport' appliqué create an upscale environment. The sport seats come with leather and feature red stitching that carries throughout the interior.
A Titanium Galaxy will also be making its debut and has 5-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers, Quickclear heated front windscreen (depending on market), cruise control, power heated door mirrors, rear air conditioning, and Ford’s adaptive front lighting system. Interior upgrades include sport seats with Alcantara trim and the Ford Convers+ display in the instrument cluster.
