CriticismsEdit

The 1.6l Ecoboost engine has been criticized by the Independent writer Jamie Merrill. He describes the engine as not powerful enough and should have been left in the smaller cars.


Current Generation: (2006–present)Edit

Ford-galaxy-mpv-2010-front-quarter-main

The third generation Galaxy was introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, and went on sale alongside the Ford S-Max . Galaxy has a top speed of 121 mph and can reach 0-62 in 10.7 seconds which is decent for its standard. Due to its size, Ford was unable to design the Galaxy using a full Kinetic Design format. However, Ford states that the Mk III Galaxy has 'elements' of Kinetic Design, such as its trapezoidal grille, large wheelarches and angular headlights.

The Ford Galaxy also comes with lots of features such as Home Safe Lighting, Quickclear heated windscreen and a cooled passenger glove box.

In the United Kingdom, the Mk III galaxy was available in Edge, Zetec, and Ghia trim levels. In February 2008, Ford added the Titanium high level trim in common with the Focus, C-MAX, Kuga, Mondeo and S-MAX ranges.

Second generation (2000–2006)Edit

Libraryimage

The Mk II Galaxy adopted the Ford corporate front end, while the interior benefited from an all-new dash, utilizing high-quality materials and a design akin to the third-generation Ford Mondeo, introduced at a similar time to the Mk II Galaxy.

The Mk II was available in 3 trim levels; the LX, Zetec and the Ghia. The LX was described as being as an accessible value, The Zetec was described as being Sporty and the Ghia was designed for Luxury.

First Generation/Origins (1995–2000)Edit

Libraryimage (1)

The first Galaxy was designed as a joint venture product between Ford and the Volkswagen Group. Produced at the joint-venture AutoEuropa plant in Palmela, Portugal, the vehicle was badge-engineered to create three vehicles: the Ford Galaxy; by Volkswagen Passenger Cars as the Volkswagen Sharan; and by SEAT as the Alhambra. This is why they all looked so similar.

his engine was transversely mounted as opposed to longitudinal mounting like in the Ford Scorpio. The original interior used a mix of both Ford and VW Group components.

Originally there were three trim levels; the Aspen, the Ghia and the GLX. However, in 1999 Ford introduced the new LX and Zetec trim styles which replaced the Aspen and GLX models.

Design quirks and odditiesEdit

On the British television series Outnumbered, The Brockman family (main family) now own a Ford Galaxy in the 2011 series, replacing the Vauxhall Zafira they had in the older series.
