About Pillar Trim Moulding
Mondeo Ford pillar trim moulding is a protective or decorative strip attached to the pillars on the vehicle.
The pillars on a vehicle are the almost vertical structural posts that support the window, door and roof areas of a car and connect the roof of the vehicle with the base of the frame. Usually steel or aluminium, the pillars in a car are solid structures, which are welded at one end to the car's frame and at the other to the roof panel and are positioned between the windows or doors. Pillar trim moulding is usually made of plastic or metal, such as brushed chrome, and can usually be attached to the pillar with clips or adhesive pads. It offers additional protection from minor damage such as scrapes and dings and also adds detail or accents to the car's styling.
A vehicle can be styled with trim/moulding in many places both internally and externally to improve the aesthetic appeal of the car. Trim moulding is designed for the specific make and model of the vehicle. The Mondeo Ford pillar trim moulding offers protection from day to day wear and tear and protects the paintwork of the body panels. Trim or moulding is also offered as optional extras on many models and is used to enhance the car's appearance and styling.
The Mondeo Ford pillar trim moulding could become damaged due to wear and tear, sun damage or minor accidents.
Ford Mondeo trivia
- The Ford Mondeo was released in 1992 and won the European Car of the Year in 1994, thanks to its focus on driver and passenger safety. It was the first car to introduce a driver’s airbag as standard.
- If you lived through the run-up to the 1997 General Election, then you probably remember the name Mondeo-Man. It referred to a specific class of voters: those who grew up working class but had become middle class. The focus on Mondeo-Man is considered one of the reasons for a Labour landslide win.
- The Mondeo ST24 comes with a 2.5-litre Duratec V6 engine. It can get from 0-62mph in only 8 seconds, which might seem a bit excessive for a family car but proved ideal for those families that wanted some serious performance specs.
- The fourth-generation Ford Mondeo was released in 2007 with several improvements. The newer model was more fuel-efficient and came with options for a hatchback model or an estate version.
- When the Mondeo went on sale in the UK in 1993, it had gone through six years of development and had a production price tag of £3 billion. At the time, that made it the single most expensive car ever produced. Fortunately, the spending paid off.
