2023 Ford Mondeo Will Boast Optional Panoramic Moonroof

The all-new 2023 Ford Mondeo was revealed last month, bringing a fresh face to a familiar model – at least for the Chinese market. Since then, the Mondeo has been spotted multiple times by Ford Authority spies in Michigan, though the sedan will be built in China for Chinese customers. Regardless, we here at Ford Authority recently noticed that the roof on all 2023 Ford Mondeo sedans seen thus far hints at the presence of a panoramic moonroof, so we reached out to Ford for confirmation, as the automaker has yet to reveal any specifics regarding the upcoming model. And sure enough, a Ford China representative confirmed that the moonroof will indeed extend to the second row.

Panoramic roofs have been a staple in FoMoCo’s lineup for some time now, and the feature is available on a number of new Blue Oval products. A panoramic roof comes standard on the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and is optional on a variety of other vehicles including the Ford Escape, Ford Edge, and Ford F-150, to name a few.

In addition to the panoramic roof, the 2023 Ford Mondeo also features faux exhaust outlets – which have appeared on a few other Blue Oval products in recent years – in the lower portion of the rear bumper, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month.

The 2023 Mondeo borrows heavily from the recently-revealed Ford Evos and Lincoln Zephyr in the styling department, with an overall aesthetic that Ford calls its “Progressive Energy in Strength” design philosophy, which was developed specifically by the automaker for China based on customers’ “aesthetic sensibility and preferences.”

The all-new Ford Mondeo sedan will be built by Changan Ford – a 50:50 joint venture between Ford and Changan Auto – and is expected to launch later this year. Meanwhile, the automaker seems to be leaving the door open for some sort of version of the Mondeo to launch in other markets, though that may apply only to a more rugged Active variant, as Ford Authority previously reported.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    A shame this car is only for China. This is a car I definitively would buy. An SUV or a crossover, never. Not everybody likes SUV’s or crossovers or is willing to buy one no matter what. I really hope the actual SUV cancer will end asap.

      Agreed, I’d love to own the wagon version of this that’s sold in France. If you haven’t seen one google Mondeo wagon, or go to AutozineUK to see them. You’d think by now that what used to be the Big Three, Ford, GM, an Chrysler would realize just how “enough” people by an large are done with suv’s and pickups costing upwards of $50K. But I guess what you an I want don’t count anymore.

    The panoramic sunroof I can take it or leave it. I love the exhaust tip extensions though. Is there any possibility that a freighter will go of course and deliver some of these to the US?

    Looks like a great car. I would buy it myself. Looks like this will not be possible. Why tease us with great products we will never be able to get?

    Thanks Ford … China gets preference. Ford’s U.S. selection is proof. People who want sedans go to Toyota, Subaru, KIA, etc. See ya Ford.

    Hey…hey you… You wanna see my exhaust?

    Lovely looking car, but fact it’s not electric proves Ford, like BMW and Toyota are not serious about EVs due to ongoing big oil investments. And no, the fake ‘Mustang’ Mach-E doesn’t count because it’s too expensive for Mondeo Man.

      There are more EVs in the works. Stay tuned. My MKZ hybrid should last a few more years at least so I am ok for them to work a bit longer to lower the cost with a longer range.

    What a shame we in Europe wont be able to upgrade from current to new Mondeo… Such a BS move.

    I have a 2019 Escape Titanium, it has all the bells& whistles,but the ride is no where like my 2017 Fusion was!! I am going back to a car,but it won”t be a Ford & I”ve been a Ford man since “1965”. If this guy Farley is so smart, why are the Foreign car makers still making a varitiy of cars ? They know what people want to buy, that is why Toyota & VW are the largest builders of cars in the world ! Ford & GM ,Better get smart again !!
