2010 Ford Galaxy and S-Max -- Click above for high-res image gallery

ford_s-max_bruss.jpgThe next generation models of Ford of Europe's popular Galaxy and S-Max people movers are about to make their introductions at the Brussels Motor Show. Both have been given modest exterior revamps, new technologies like Ford's Blind Spot Information System and so on. Most importantly, though, these are the first Fords to receive EcoBoost four-cylinder engines.

The S-Max wears a redesigned hood and front fascia with LED running lights, while its rear end gets a new tailgate and LED taillights. The Galaxy is likewise fitted with the new family look, with a bolder lower, new fog lights, and LEDs in the rear.

Both cars have updated interiors and new materials. Under their hoods, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost SCTi tops out at 200 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque (the latter of which is available from just 1,750 rpm). For all the info on two more of Ford's Please-Come-to-America-Offerings, have a look at the press release after the jump and check out the high-res galleries below.

As evidenced by most other manufacturers, it is difficult to make an attractive people mover. Ford has succeeded with these two.

I think these would do relatively well if Ford were to bring them over. They won't sell 100k of them a year, but they'll sell a bunch.

I'd consider one. I like the Mazda 5, so this would work for me...

Those are a bit bigger then the Mazda 5. I don't like the square rear end of the Galaxy, but the S-Max is a cool MPV!

I know Ford only made subtle changes to the S-Max, but those changes were effective in making this vehicle look cooler and more upscale. I would like to see the S-Max come over to the U.S. market; I think it would kick the Venza and the terribly ungainly Accord Crosstour to the curb. I actually would like to see the S-Max and the 2011 regular C-Max come to the U.S. as utility vehicles for Mercury. Ford and Lincoln can both continue with CUVs and/or SUVs in their lineups while Mercury would be the only brand to get these great looking MAVs instead.
