New Production Ready Ford Vignale Mondeo Breaks Cover
Ford | Apr-17-2015

​LONDON, England – Ford Motor Company today unveiled the production version of the Ford Vignale Mondeo – the first vehicle to be introduced as part of Ford’s unique Vignale upscale product and ownership experience.

Each Ford Vignale model is hand-finished in a special Vignale Centre at Ford’s manufacturing facility in Valencia, Spain. Available in four-door and wagon bodystyles, the Ford Vignale Mondeo delivers superior refinement with the European debut of Ford’s Active Noise Cancellation technology, and unique design and specification with quilted and tuxedo-stitched leather interior, exclusive Vignale Nocciola metallic paint colour, and special alloy wheel designs.

Customers can now use Ford’s new dedicated Ford Vignale Internet destination and online configurator to explore options and pricing. The Ford Vignale Mondeo will be available to pre-order from May at Vignale Lounges integrated within the new flagship FordStores opening across Europe.

The Ford Vignale Mondeo delivers advanced technologies including Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which can reduce the severity of some frontal collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians, or help drivers avoid some impacts altogether. Powerful and fuel efficient powertrains include Ford’s new 210 PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel, 240 PS EcoBoost petrol, and 187 PS petrol-electric hybrid. Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (iAWD) also is offered to automatically enhance traction and road-holding when needed.

Vignale customers also will receive a personalised service tailored to their needs for the lifetime of their vehicle ownership, supported by a Vignale relationship manager and 24 hour free-phone assistance from the Vignale OneCall service.

“Ford Vignale is the highest expression of the Ford brand in Europe bringing together award-winning design with a unique ownership experience,” said Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Our vision for Vignale is to create a modern, contemporary upscale experience that makes Vignale a valued part of customers’ lives, starting with the Ford Vignale Mondeo, and later this year with introduction of the Ford Vignale S MAX.”

​Ford Vignale Mondeo Marries Cutting-Edge Technology with Traditional Craftsmanship

LONDON, England – The Ford Vignale Mondeo offers sophisticated driver assistance technologies and equipment that contribute to a simplified and stress-free experience, such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.

Also offered are SYNC 2, Active Park Assist featuring Perpendicular Parking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Active City Stop, and Ford Dynamic LED headlights.

An advanced Sony DAB audio and navigation system with 12 hi-fidelity speakers also is offered, as well as features including a power-adjustable, memory-equipped steering column, as well as power tailgate and heated steering wheel.

Improving safety for rear-seat passengers, Ford’s industry-first Inflatable Rear Seatbelts rapidly expand in the event of an accident to disperse crash forces across a body area five times greater than that achieved by a conventional seatbelt.

The Ford Vignale Mondeo is offered exclusively with high-power engines including 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel, and Ford’s 187 PS petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.

The 2.0-litre EcoBoost is offered with 203 PS and 240 PS and a six-speed automatic transmission. The 180 PS 2.0-litre TDCi is offered with six-speed manual and PowerShift automatic transmissions, and with Ford’s iAWD system that delivers seamless transition between front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive performance.

Also offered is Ford’s new 210 PS 2.0-litre TDCi engine, which enables faster response and 450 Nm of torque available from 2000 rpm for effortless and fuel-efficient cruising.

Each Ford Vignale model is painstakingly hand-finished by six master craftspeople at the new state-of-the-art Vignale Centre, where vehicles are individually tailored to customer specification.

The Vignale Centre at Ford’s Valencia manufacturing facility blends traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology. The latest laser and camera technology supports skilled eyes in closely examining quality aspects including panel alignment and paint finish, helping meet customer expectations.

Passionate about precision and attention to detail, Vignale Centre experts hand-polish the paintwork and meticulously scrutinise the fine detailing of the leather, with each hide checked for flaws.

Only when it has passed 100 additional checks in addition to the rigorous One Ford quality process will the vehicle be handed over to its owner by a Vignale relationship manager in a Vignale Lounge – part of a unique premium customer experience.

Bespoke Services will Enhance Vignale Ownership Experience
Apr-17-2015 3:00 AM ET

​LONDON, England – Every Ford Vignale customer will be supported by a dedicated Vignale relationship manager to ensure a personalised service tailored to individual needs, from the first appointment at the FordStore and throughout the ownership experience.

Customers also will through their Vignale relationship manager be able to arrange a number of time-saving, life-enhancing elements of the ownership experience.

Among bespoke services available to customers will be collection and delivery for vehicle servicing – from a home address or office location – alongside servicing scheduled to suit the owner. Ford Vignale vehicles will always be handled with the greatest care and will be returned to owners having received a full valet.

Ford Vignale consumers will also be able to call upon knowledgeable Vignale One Call advisors 24 hours a day for additional support. Customer interactions will be a priority, whether answering a technical question, arranging a FordStore visit, resolving a customer concern, or managing a service booking.

Available across Europe later this year for Apple and Android operating systems, the free Vignale Service app also enables owners to directly access the Ford Vignale Internet destination and video content, or create an accident report. Driving tips and information, including traffic regulations for countries in the European Union, are included – as is a dealership locator.

“Ford Vignale is designed for discerning individuals for whom time is the jewel and who demand quality experiences,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “Vignale ensures personalised service tailored to the customer’s needs and makes them feel special from the moment they walk in the door.”
