From 1995, the Galaxy saw a successful 2+ decades of manufacture. Built by the Ford Auto Company, the Galaxy was a large multipurpose vehicle and was their very first MPV sold outside of the USA.

Spanning 3 generations, the Galaxy changed appearance quite radically over the years. Surprisingly sharing the same makeup as the Ford Mondeo, the Galaxy was manufactured alongside the smaller S-Max.

The first generation was a result of a partnership between Volkswagen and Ford, and together, they created vehicles that were structurally almost identical, the VW Sharan, SEAT Alhambra and of course, the Galaxy.

All cars contained a VW engine. Engines included a 2.8-liter VR6 petrol with optional 4-wheel drive with just two trims available, the Aspen and GLX; the range was improved upon for the 2000 facelift along with an updated dashboard, the model variants changed to LX, Zetec and Chia.

By the second generation (2006) the Galaxy was entirely a much larger vehicle. After Ford sold their stake to Volkswagen, the Galaxy broke away from the trio of similar vehicles and had an engine exclusively built by Ford.

Ford worked on creating a flexible interior designed to work around all requirements of the vehicle, and so the fold flat system was introduced. This allowed for all rear seats to be folded down to the floor to create more space without having the difficulty of fully removing seats and storing them when not in use. This opened up the back to create a massive cargo hold. This generation of Galaxies enjoyed some free advertising whilst featured in the popular UK sitcom ‘outnumbered.’

Now sharing the same engine with the S-Max, the third generation of Galaxies had good power behind them, with the ability to reach 60 mph in 9 seconds.

A new grille adorned the front of the upgraded facelift in 2020, the same grille that featured on a number of Ford vehicles such as the Kuga, Puma, Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo.

After 27 years, Ford decided to discontinue the Galaxy, a result of the shifting market demanding crossover SUVs rather than minivan-type vehicles.
