Ford‘S top-of-the-range MPV twins, the S-MAX and Galaxy, are the latest models in the blue oval brand’s line up to offer the company’s new flagship 175PS TDCi engine.
Developed for performance, and with 400Nm of torque or pulling power at 1,750rpm, the 175PS 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi engine is the largest displacement and most powerful diesel engine available in Ford‘s passenger cars.
Meanwhile, two-litre diesel S-MAX and Galaxy models equipped with an automatic gearbox have been given a 10PS power boost – up from 130PS to 140PS – and a two-litre flexifuel engine which is capable of running on any mix of bioethanol and petrol in the same fuel tank has also been introduced for both ranges.
Fixtures and fittings have also been improved with wireless Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity now standard across the range while the range-topping S-MAX Titanium benefits from even more standard equipment in the shape of a Solar Reflect Windscreen, ambient lighting and chrome door handles. The optional Titanium X pack now includes bi-xenon lights.
Extra kit for the Galaxy Ghia includes 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.
To complete the changes, entry-level versions of the S-MAX and Galaxy now become Edge models instead of LX, in line with changes to other Ford products.
