2016 Ford Galaxy is the first fourth generation model of this vehicle. World public is waiting for this model to come out and constantly listening to the rumors. This model was spied during its testing on Nurburing. New model looks larger than previous one, it was hard to see its exterior f it tures since with a lot of camouflage and its platform follows the newest Ford Focus facelift and the new look of Ford Mondeo. In some other segments this vehicle is also going to look like Mondeo since it is made on the same CD4 platform, so we might expect it to have the same engine option.
As we aid in the intro it was hard to spot this vehicle’s exterior features because of the camouflage, but we can tell you that the new model is going to be larger and bolder and that it will come with rakish windshield and sloping roofline. 2016 Ford Galaxy windows are going to be a little bit bigger than on other similar models so it will probably offer nice visibility. New model will also come with numerous influences from restyled Ford Focus and Mondeo. In the front it will have popular trapezoidal grille, aggressive and swept back headlights and large taillights that are similar to the ones we can see on Ford Fusion and Ford Mondeo.
2016 Ford Galaxy interior will come with some of the standard Ford features that include MyFord Touch infotainment system placed on 4,2 inch display, it will also have the new and very popular SYNC 2 telematics and its cabin will be upgraded to the new level with much more soft touch materials and less hard plastic. When it comes to cabin we can also expect to see some aluminum trim and carbon fiber, as well as some accent lightning in the higher trim levels. It will be able toa accommodate 5 passengers with 4 adults and one child. Its back seat will come with enough leg and head room and front seats are very supportive and comfortable.
Performance and Engine
When it comes to performance segment this model will come with the same engine options we can find in Ford Mondeo. This mean we will find three engine options under this vehcile’s hood, the base version will come with 1,5 liter four cylinder engine made in EcoBoost technology and the second biggest will be the 2,0 liter four cylinder also turbocharged and made in EcoBoost. For European markets 2,0 liter TDCi diesel engine is also going to be available. All these engines are going to be combined with six speed manual or automatic transmission.
2016 Ford Galaxy Price and Release Date
Price of 2016 Ford Galaxy we still don’t have any relevant information, but since this is the first fourth generation vehicle, we think it will be at least several thousand dollars more expensive than the previous model. Another mystery is whether this model is going to be sold in the United States. Since this vehicle is entering a new generation this is the right time to enter US market, but since Ford didn’t gave any big announcements lately, we will maybe need to wait for a few years more.
