New Ford Galaxy prototype spotted

 

A new prototype test version of the popular Ford MPV, the Galaxy has been seen out and about recently by some eagle eyed Ford enthusiasts, and judging by comments made it appears to have had quite a few changes made to it.

Set to be released in 2013/2014, the new Ford Galaxy is being eagerly anticipated by MPV fans, one of the biggest changes noticed so far is the size difference, with the new version being both longer and wider.  One of the big advantages to this is offering more leg and elbow room to passengers inside the seven seat vehicle.

Not very much is known about just what will be changing under the bonnet for the new Galaxy, but many have guessed that it will feature new powertrains, and incorporate more powerful engine options such as a 1.6 litre TDCi turbodiesel model.

The Galaxy will be part of Ford's global ‘One Ford' platform alongside many other Ford cars for sale that you will eventually find at your nearest Ford car dealership. Ford has mentioned in the past that the new Galaxy model could be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
