Ford S-MAX and Galaxy flexifuel vehicles (FFV) (19/05/2008)

Ford's range of stylish and versatile seven-seater MPVs now offers an enhanced engine and technology mix.

The Ford S-MAX and Galaxy are the latest to offer the new flagship 175PS  TDCi engine.


Developed for performance, the 175PS 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi engine is the largest displacement and most powerful diesel installation available in Ford of Europe’s passenger cars. It provides a sustained 400Nm of torque at 1,750rpm for effortless overtaking ability combined with exceptional economy.

There is also a 10PS power boost, from 130PS to 140PS, for 2.0-litre diesel S-MAX and Galaxy models equipped with an automatic gearbox.  Another new 2.0-litre Ford MPV variant is the S-MAX and Galaxy flexifuel vehicle (FFV) – capable of running on any mix of bioethanol and petrol in the same fuel tank.

Ford S-MAX and Galaxy are more advanced inside as well as out.  Wireless Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity becomes standard across the range.

The range-topping S-MAX Titanium adds Solar Reflect Windscreen, ambient lighting and chrome door handles as standard, while the Titanium X pack now includes bi-xenon lights.

Galaxy Ghia adds new 10-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, Solar Reflect Windscreen, ambient lighting and rear compartment air conditioning.

A new Ghia X Plus Pack is now available, with 18-inch alloys, bi-xenon lights and powered rear quarter windows to complement full leather trim and glass panorama roof.

Entry-level versions of the S-MAX and Galaxy now become Edge models instead of LX in line with changes to other Ford products.

The S-MAX and Galaxy colour palate is also refreshed with Chill, Morello (aubergine), Blazer Blue and Hypnotic Silver joining existing popular shades.
