Ford Just Unveiled a new Galaxy Minivan in Europe
In recent years minivan sales here in the United States have been languishing a little bit due to the success of crossover vehicles and compact SUVs. However, minivans remain wildly popular overseas, and are a big part of the global strategy for automakers such as Ford. In fact, Ford just unveiled a new Galaxy minivan in Europe. We will be using this blog post to tell you everything that we know so far about this exciting new model.
This new version of the Galaxy minivan marks the fourth generation of this model. Ford has completely redesigned this model from bumper-to-bumper, and it is better than ever. They have given this model an upgraded design, fuel efficient engine options, and top-of-the-line safety equipment.
The Galaxy minivan is the larger sibling of the S-Max. This Galaxy model was designed for larger families. It is more luxury oriented and is able to haul up to seven people. On the other hand, the S-Max is smaller and was created to have a broader appeal.
The new next-generation Galaxy minivan features styling that is very sophisticated looking. This vehicle will really stand out in traffic with its Aston-style grille and bold lines. It also boasts new slim headlights that look new stunning with the new body style.
Another thing that is very exciting about this new Galaxy minivan is the fuel efficient engines that it is offered with. It is offered with a choice of two different EcoBoost engines. The first one is a 1.5-liter, EcoBoost engine that has 158 horsepower, and the other one is a 2.0-liter, EcoBoost that has 158 horsepower. Ford also offers the Galaxy with a 2.0-liter, TurboDiesel engine options. This engine has a range of 158 horsepower to 207 horsepower depending on the way that its tuned.
Unfortunately, we will have to admire this new minivan from afar for the time being. Ford will only be releasing this van in the European market, and they have no plans to bring it to the United States as of right now.
