2016 Ford Galaxy price, release date, mpg – The Ford Galaxy is a MPV (multi purpose vehicle) very similar to the S-Max, but a bit taller and a little bit longer. The current third generation which is present on the market since the 2006, is soon to be the older generation. The new Ford Galaxy 2016 will be an all-new car which will grow in size even more. Built on a CD4 platform, the new generation of Galaxy will inherit more than just some of the Fusion’s exterior styling.
2016 Ford Galaxy redesign
As far as the exterior design goes, we already mentioned that it will be bigger, but the 2016 Ford Galaxy will also be freshened up. The front end of the car will come with a trapezoidal stripe grille and a lower nose. The windshield will be swept back and bigger, while the headlights will also be laid-back. In the back, there will be some new features as well, such as the Mondeo-like taillights, while the upright tailgate will be slightly redesigned.
The 2016 Ford Galaxy interior will not suffer any major changes when talking about material options and design. But, the new angular flattop dashboard will lose its sporty look. Throughout the cabin, soft plastics will still dominate, while the seats will be upholstered with cloth or leather. The overall driver comfort inside the car is great, thanks to the ability of adjusting both the driver’s seat and the steering wheel. With the high driving position, as well as a big windshield and tailgate window, outward visibility is excellent on both sides. Touchscreen and navigation will not come as standard, and the customers will have to pay an additional $2,000 if they want them as well. One of the other options is the rear seat DVD entertainment system, which includes a couple of small screens at the back of the front-seat’s headrests. There will be plenty of cargo space, especially when rear seats are folded.
