2018 Ford Mondeo

The Ford company has two very similar models which are released for different markets. Buyers in the US are having a chance to purchase Fusion, mid-size sedan which has been on their markets for long time. On the other hand, European markets are offering Mondeo, vehicle from same class, with similar characteristics and design. Some of the differences are visible, some of them are under the hood. Company based in North America is preparing new model, and there is no doubt that customers in EU will be deprived of 2018 Ford Mondeo. We expect significant updates on both vehicles, with possible addition of new engines.
