MK3 Powertrains

The new Galaxy engine line up is:

  • 1.8 litre Duratorq TDCi 100 PS (74 kW)
  • 1.8 litre Duratorq TDCi 125 PS (92 kW)
  • 2.0 litre Duratorq TDCi 130 PS (96 kW) with cDPF (coated Diesel Particulate Filter)
  • 2.0 litre Duratorq TDCi 140 PS (103 kW) with or without cDPF
  • 2.0 litre Duratec 145 PS (107 kW)

Smooth, powerful engines and a suspension equally tuned for outstanding comfort and dynamics are key elements of the new Galaxy character.
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.

This 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.

The 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 34.4 mpg.

Ford’s 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 shifting forces.

DURATORQ 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.

This 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 3,500 rpm.

Drivers 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 combinations.

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 of 44.8mpg.

DURATORQ 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.

With 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.

Coated 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. the best Used Galaxy supplier!
