Six Appeal - Durashift Six-Speed Manual Transmission

Ford is widening the availability of its new Durashift six-speed manual transmission in the Mondeo range. Specially designed for higher output engines, the six-speed debuted in early 2003 on the 130PS Mondeo TDCi.

With new Mondeo, it will also be available in the 226PS, 3.0-litre Mondeo ST220, the new Duratec SCi direct-injection engine, 115PS TDCi and 170PS 2.5-litre V6 models.

The Durashift six-speed’s longer top gear gives Mondeo ST220 a boost in potential top speed from 151mph to 155mph, for more relaxed cruising at motorway speed. Zero-to-62mph acceleration is maintained at 7.6 seconds. Official fuel consumption is certified at 19.5mpg urban, 35.3mpg extra urban and 27.1mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 249 grams per kilometre.
