Under the hood of the 2018 Ford Galaxy should be a 1.5-l EcoBoost engine as the primary choice. This one comes with a turbocharger for the output of 160 horses. Another turbocharged drivetrain is a 2.0-l petrol unit. This bigger engine can deliver more power, probably close to 250 hp. Finally, new Galaxy will offer a diesel variant. It will be a 2.0-l TDCI, which will be ready to deliver 150 hp. Transmission for all engines will be a 6-speed auto, with manual option. The speed is not the most important thing for this kind of vehicle, but we can mention that MPV can sprint to 60 mph in slightly more than 8 seconds. A hybrid version of the new Galaxy is a rumor, but there is no official information.

The 2018 Ford Galaxy is a 7-seater multi-purpose vehicle. That means it can transport passengers or cargo. Being so big is giving enough room for both. Travelers are not going to have problems with legs since there is enough space in all rows. Cargo can be loaded behind the third row, which is foldable. That can bring even more storage room. Outside, the vehicle is getting some refreshment. The third generation of MPV dates from 2015, and this is the first update. However, it is not going to be radical, since it is still no time for mid-cycle refreshment. Cosmetic changes will include headlights, bumpers, and grille.
