powerful engines and a suspension equally tuned for outstanding
comfort and dynamics are key elements of the new Galaxy
New Galaxy comes with a range of four diesel engines and
one petrol engine. All are designed to deliver smooth and
powerful performance combined with low fuel consumption
and clean, Euro Stage IV emissions.
145PS, 2.0-LITRE DURATEC HE - Ford's 2.0-litre
Duratec HE petrol engine offers 145 PS (107 kW) at 6,000
rpm and peak torque of 190 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
efficient and affordable petrol engine currently powers
Ford Mondeo and now brings its exceptional driveability
and performance to the new Galaxy. It is lightweight and
compact, offering both good performance feel and high levels
of driving quality.
2.0-litre Duratec HE engine is an integral part of Ford’s
powertrain range, offering an exceptional balance of torque
and power combined with a high level of fuel economy. It
offers 90 per cent of peak torque in a broad range between
2,000 and 6,000 rpm, while meeting strict European Stage
IV emissions standards.
Equipped with this engine, the Galaxy reaches a target of
194 kph. Acceleration figures are rated from zero to 60
mph in 10.7 seconds. Fuel
consumption in combined ECE mode Galaxy achieves a reasonable
proven Durashift MTX-75 5-speed manual transmission provides
the MK3 Galaxy with an effortless and refined shifting character.
It features dual-cone synchronisation of the first, second
and third gears, another measure contributing to reduced
TDCi 1.8-LITRE DIESEL - The 1.8-litre Duratorq
TDCi diesel engine offers 125 PS (92 kW) at 3,700 rpm and
peak torque of 320 Nm at 1,800 rpm. Ford's transient overboost
facility boosts that torque to a peak of 340 Nm.
state-of-the-art engine offers strong engine torque performance
combined with low noise levels and excellent fuel economy.
80 per cent of peak torque is available between 1,400 and
will also have a choice of two proven transmissions as the
1.8-litre TDCi can be mated with either the Durashift MTX75
5-speed manual or the Durashift MMT6 6-speed manual. When
working together in the Galaxy, the 125-PS power plant and
the MMT6 transmission are capable of a top speed of 116mph
(MTX75: 114) and an acceleration from zero to 60mph in a
swift 11.3 seconds (MTX75: 11.4). Fuel consumption in the
combined ECE mode of 44.8mpg is achieved in both engine-transmission
Also available for Galaxy is a 100-PS (74 kW) version of
the 1.8-litre Duratorq TDCi, boasting maximum torque of
280 Nm at 1,800 rpm. Using the Durashift MTX75 gearbox,
this achieves a target maximum speed of 106mph, acceleration
from 0 to 60mph in 13.8 seconds, and combined fuel consumption
TDCi 2.0-LITRE DIESEL
- The 2.0-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engine offers
140 PS (103 kW) at 4,000 rpm and peak torque of 320 Nm at
1750 rpm. Under normal driving conditions, Ford’s
advanced transient overboost facility allows even stronger
pulling power with a peak torque of 340 Nm.
this engine and transmission combination the MK3 Galaxy
accelerates from zero to 60mph in 9.9 seconds and is capable
of a 120mph top speed. The cars combined ECE mode fuel consumption
is impressively low with the Galaxy delivering 43.5mpg.
The 140 PS 2.0i Diesel comes as standard with Ford's Durashift
MMT6 6-speed manual transmission, and a 130 PS engine will
also be available at a later date with a Durashift AT6 6-speed
automatic transmission option.
Diesel Particulate Filter (cDPF) - Ford's optional
cDPF system traps carbon deposits as they exit from the
combustion system, preventing their release into the atmosphere.
Under favourable conditions the system then cleans itself
with a controlled 'burn-off' process, thus providing a self-contained
clean air system without the need for service maintenance.
