A ground state of the excitonic condensate in the 2D extended Falicov-Kimball model involving the coupling of electrons and vibrational degrees of freedom has been investigated. Adapting the unrestricted Hartree-Fock approximation, we have derived a set of explicitly self-consistent equations determining both an excitonic order parameter and a lattice distortion when both the electron-phonon coupling and the electron-electron interaction are treated on an equal footing. A ground-state phase diagram of the excitonic condensate depending on the model parameters is constructed. The phase diagram shows us that a window of the excitonic condensate with lattice distortion increases when increasing the electron-phonon coupling or moving up the f-electron level, whereas, it is confined in between two critical values of the Coulomb interaction. The Coulomb interaction and the electron-phonon coupling have been affirmed to act together in establishing the excitonic condensate phase with lattice distortion in dichalcogenide systems. The BCS-BEC crossover of the excitonic condensation in the systems is also addressed.
