The new Ford Galaxy will sit on the same platform as the new Mondeo
A sportier S-Max variant will follow after the Galaxy's launch
New powertrains will be introduced, including the forthcoming 1.5-litre TDCi
The Galaxy is expected to premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show
Test mules for the new Ford Galaxy have been spotted out testing ahead of the car’s 2013-2014 launch.
Seen here disguised under a cut-and-shut body that combines a new, more aggressive front end with panels derived from the current model, the new Galaxy, and its sister variant the S-Max, will sit on the new CD391 Mondeo’s platform.
The new Ford platform, which is both longer and wider than that of the existing Galaxy/S-Max, is expected to liberate more leg and elbow room. It will also feature new powertrains, including a more powerful 1.6-litre TDCi turbodiesel and possibly a 1.5 TDCi.
A launch is pencilled in for the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.
