Ford Galaxy

Recommended Posts

Unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show, evidently, for the European market. Interesting use of a name from Ford's past. The Ford Galaxy people carrier.

The cool big sedan was spelled "Galaxie" though. The new one reminds me of Mazda 5.

More and more I see the sliding door disappearing on vans. I wonder if this is a trend for the future of these vehicles? And is it actually a van when it has conventional doors. Do sliding doors on a box shaped vehicle define a van?..I'm just wondering.

Ewww, how did they get this from the concept?

They didn't. The press ignored Ford's advice that the concept was positioned between the Mondeo and Galaxy and is thus not a Galaxy replacement. The production SAV will be a smaller 5-seat MPV very much like the concept. Despite what you will read it will not be called the D-Max, nor the E-Max.

As has been mentioned, that's the upcoming S-Max, and it's quite true to the concept. ^_^ Edited by mark

I like this one-too bad Ford U.S.A. isn't following this school of design-Mercury in particular. Gain for Ford of Europe, another big loss for Ford's home.

It seems like all the European makes use the same side door panels now... BMW had it on the X5 in 1999, now Ford, VW, Opel concepts... blah. It is nice, elegant, and muscular, but kinda common now...
