The new Ford Galaxy, unveiled at the 2010 Brussels Motorshow, brings with it the arrival of new and innovative technologies and features set to challenge established perceptions of what Ford cars feel like to sit in and to drive.
With fresh designs, they feature new interior materials and features, a range of more efficient powertrains and a host of driver-focused technologies aimed at improving safety and comfort.
The 2010 Ford Galaxy is one of the first cars developed by Ford to be available with the all-new, high efficiency, 2.0-litre 203PS EcoBoost petrol engine. This joins new 115PS and 163PS 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engines, with an updated 140PS version arriving in the UK later. Additionally, the latest Ford PowerShift double wet-clutch transmission system is available for the first time on Ford's large car range; it will be standard equipment with the EcoBoost petrol engine and optional with the 2.0 140PS and 2.0 163PS Duratorq diesels.
The new Ford Galaxy will debut a range of innovative new safety and convenience features including a Blind Spot Information System.
The new Ford Galaxy also features a re-designed frontal section. A new, more sculptured bonnet combines with a new front fascia design incorporating a bolder lower trapezoidal grille with inserts featuring subtle chrome bars - and new-look fog lights. Titanium and Titanium X models are differentiated further with chrome bars in the upper grille.
The roof incorporates new bolder integrated silver rails for cross bars, while at the rear, distinctive new LED lights and body-coloured lower fascia are standard equipment.
The new Ford Galaxy will be on sale in the UK in April 2010 and prices will be announced closer to launch.Published 13 January 2010
