The 2016 Ford Galaxy will be presented at the next year’s New York Auto Show. The all-new generation of this model might be released even in the USA, which will be its first appearance on that market. Therefore, the manufacturer invested a lot of time and effort in making the new generation worth mentioning. To start with, the new model will have a fresh, new appearance. The outdated look that was common for this MPV will give room to a new, more modern and attractive design. Also, the new model will be roomier and more comfortable, as its dimensions will grow. In addition, the model will have a refreshed interior design, new gadgets and more space. As for the powertrain, judging by some rumors and reports, the 2016 Galaxy will have impressive fuel economy, while its power output might be a downside to this model. Since the redesign is focusing on the efficiency and economy, it is not quite certain that the new model will include power and performance to its attribute list. However, we are sure that the model will be powerful enough to meet most of the demands of its consumers.
New Appearance And Fresh Style
The 2016 Ford Galaxy will have new and refreshed appearance. The new model will use the same platform the Fusion does, but it will be altered to fit the Fusion’s bigger sibling. The overall shape of the minivan will be changed, so now the model will have dynamic and sleek figure. Also, the model will feature numerous new details, such as new headlights and taillights, restyled bumpers and fascia, but it will also keep some parts more conservative. That way, the new Galaxy will have a modern and appealing exterior, while at the same time keeping traditional details unchanged. In addition, the new model will have its interior redesigned as well. The new cabin will follow the same design changes as the exterior, but it will also have more equipment offered. The comfort will be improved and the model will grow, which means it will offer more space inside.
2016 Ford Galaxy Powertrain Expectations
The 2016 Ford Galaxy powertrain hasn’t been announced yet, but there have been some rumors about it. Judging by them, it is possible that the Fusion and Galaxy will have similar, if not the same, engines offered as their architecture is similar, too. Therefore, the possible engine for the new Galaxy is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline-four unit that generates 181 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. The probable transmission for this mill is a six-speed automatic. Another option is the 2.0-liter inline-four mill that produces 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. There is also a possibility of a diesel variant. In that case, the new Galaxy would probably use a 2.0-liter TDCi engine.
2016 Ford Galaxy Premiere
The 2016 Ford Galaxy will have its premiere at the 2015 NY Auto Show. The release date, however, is still unknown, as well as its price.
