Ford Galaxy is Now Well Organized MPV with a New Range of Ford Galaxy Engines in the UK

The Galaxy is the older, mature and exhausted cousin of the S-Max in the UK. Ford has reproduced this model with new styling features and other refinements. Ford has also changed its platform from the old one to the same platform which is being used by Ford Mondeo vehicles. Now the new version of the Galaxy is sharing major parts with the Mondeo including engines, and entire drivetrain. This is something really positive about the Ford Galaxy models as at least it has its driving system same as one of the most reliable cars ever produced by Ford. The Ford Galaxy allows more space for its lovers. It has a boot capacity of over 300 litres in the new versions. The third row is sufficiently spacious and it has enough room to entertain the adults.

How new galaxy drives?

The new galaxy is really calm and quiet on the road. There is no difference between the galaxy and the new S-Max. It is not a Sports Saloon at all. It feels big and bold but galaxy doesn’t manage its generous size. However, it remains the best when pushed softly.

Engines? There should be a choice of Ford’s the best engines on the Galaxy models but there isn’t any. There should be a couple of EcoBoost engines, but there shouldn’t. Anyways, there is one thing you can really appreciate is, Ford galaxy 2.0-litre diesel engine. It is the best engine in the Galaxy engines line-up. It is one of the most admired engines in the midline of trims, capable of generating 178bhp and comes with six-speed transmission and an automatic option is also available, which suits more than the Galaxy’s manual transmission. For those families and drivers who need more powerful traction on the road and lives in the hilly areas or on tough terrains they need to drive, they can have an all-wheel driving system on the Galaxy.

It is expected that Ford would get more than 90 per cent of its sales out of Ford Galaxy diesel engines in the UK. The performance of the galaxy engines is sufficient enough for the vehicle of this size. If your requirements are instant speed, you must go for the petrol engines. All diesel models are powered by 2.0-litre TDCI engines and they are the same basic units Ford has swapped by ECOnetic and Duratorq engines. Ford hasn’t given these technologies on Galaxy engines at their best.

Power Range

Starting from the power range of 118hp, this engine generates 310Nm of torque and making it the slowest version in the range. It has a top speed of 114 miles per hour and makes 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 13.6 seconds. On the upside, the carbon emissions of this model are 129g/km while claimed fuel economy around 57 miles per gallon. This is a six-speed manual transmission.

This power range moves up to 148bhp with the same displacement. It has a claimed fuel economy of 48 miles per gallon. The emissions remain the same as the previous version. The PowerShift transmission and manual transmission has the same stats. Only power and torque increase to the best with the top speed of around 125 miles per hour. You can also opt for a 178bhp version of the engine with 400Nm of torque. Yet again there is a manual transmission offering excellent fuel economy and well-controlled emissions. While on the other hand, PowerShift automatic transmission also comes with all-wheel drive function and returns the fuel economy of 48.2 miles per gallon.

Recently a garage has reported that they have received a Galaxy with a full-blown engine at just 26k miles and it requires a reconditioned Ford Galaxy engine in the UK. If you get into this kind of issue, nothing to worry about because you can find one at the best prices in the UK.
