Ford Galaxy Sales Figures

Ford Galaxy

The Ford Galaxy is a large multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that has been in production since 1995. It was developed as a joint venture between Ford and the Volkswagen Group, with the aim of catering to the demand for large family cars in Europe.

Ford Galaxy Overview

The Ford Galaxy was introduced in 1995 as a collaboration between Ford and Volkswagen. This joint venture also resulted in the Volkswagen Sharan and SEAT Alhambra, which shared many components with the Galaxy but differed in terms of styling and branding. The vehicle was aimed at families needing a spacious car without opting for a traditional minivan. The Galaxy was positioned as a more upscale alternative within Ford’s lineup, sitting above models like the Ford C-Max in terms of size and price.

The Ford Galaxy, with its blend of spaciousness, versatility, and comfort, has catered to the needs of large families for several decades. While the overall demand for MPVs has faced challenges with the rising popularity of SUVs and crossovers, the Galaxy has remained a notable option in the segment, particularly in European markets.

The current-generation Galaxy is available with a choice of two engines: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Galaxy is available in a variety of trim levels, including the base Zetec, the mid-level Titanium, and the top-of-the-line Vignale. The Galaxy is a popular car in Europe. It has won numerous awards, including the 2016 What Car? Car of the Year award

Shared a platform with the Volkswagen Sharan and SEAT Alhambra. It had a versatile interior with seating for up to seven people. Various petrol and diesel engines were available.

The latest iteration of the Galaxy continued its evolution with even more advanced safety and comfort features. The design was further refined, and the vehicle was built on Ford’s CD4 platform.
