The subtly facelifted Ford Galaxy MPV that will be making its world debut at the 2010 Brussels Show in January 2010. More significantly, the revised MPV marks the debut of Ford's all-new 2.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine, which is highly efficient.
The new 2.0-liter EcoBoost STCi engine employs turbocharging and direct injection technologies. It pumps out 203HP at 5,500 rpm with a maximum torque of 300Nm, delivered across a broad 1,750-4,500 rpm range.
Linked to a standard dual-clutch transmission (DSG), the revised Galaxy performs the century sprint in 8.8 seconds with a top speed of 217 km/h.
On the outside, the new Galaxy features a subtly redesigned snout with a more sculpted bonnet. It also receive revised lower and upper grilles along with new silver roof rails and LED tail lights.
I am looking forward to the new Ecoboost/DSG combination to be deployed in the Ford Mondeo. This will pose some serious challenge to the Japanese camps with the appropriate pricing.
