The American automaker, Ford, has eventually taken the liberty of introducing to the public its range topping Vignale variant, the Vignale Mondeo. The company will be selling the car pretty soon in the UK with a sticker price of GBP29,045. It seems that this high end Vignale from the Blue Oval company will be the company’s secret weapon to compete in the mid-size premium automotive segment.
As a high end model, there is no questioning that the vehicle should have features that other variants don’t. Well, in this case, the Ford Vignale Mondeo has been treated with a uniquely designed hexagonal front grille that is painted in the dark matte metallic hue, to begin with. The grille has been decorated with an aluminum surround as well. In addition to that, customers buying the vehicle will also receive a high gloss finish for the side mirrors and pillars, a high gloss finish for the lower grille, complete with chrome bars, and also 18-inch wheels exclusive to the Vignale model. For the exterior body paint, customers will get to choose from a number of options, including black, silver and white.
The car looks even more attractive with the inclusion of LED headlamps that are fully adaptive and also a power tailgate. Yet, for the comfort of the driver and passengers inside the cabin, the car features a heated steering wheel, the company’s SYNC2 vehicle infotainment system and also a premium sound system featuring 12 speakers. A specially developed smartphone app is available as well and this app will provide GPS-enabled services, such as the Vignale OneCall and the Vignale Park Me.
When it comes to the technical specifications of the car, the Ford Vignale Mondeo packs a turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost engine that develops 240 PS of power output, to begin with. For an alternative, customers may also consider a 2.0L TDCi turbodiesel engine with 180 PS of power output. For more power, there is a biturbo variant of this turbodiesel engine that churns out 210 PS of power. If that is not enough, there is even a hybrid variant as well which delivers 187 PS of total power output.
