Ford Announce New Galaxy People Carrier

Published Date: 21st Mar 2006

Ford has announced price details of its new Ford Galaxy people carrier, available with new car finance options such as hire purchase agreements.

On sale in June, the new Ford Galaxy is longer and taller than older editions and comes in a range of engines, including a 2.0 litre 143 bhp petrol engine and featuring a 1.8 litre diesel engine with 123 bhp.

The new models have seven seats, which can be easily folded to allow for a flat floor ? an improvement on older cars that required seats to be completely removed.

Steve Hood, marketing director Ford of Britain, said: "We are delighted by the response we have received since the vehicle was shown in Geneva.

"Requests for information on the dedicated Galaxy micro-site have exceeded all our expectations."

He added: "Galaxy has led the UK's MPV market for over 10 years - ever since it was launched in fact. The all-new Galaxy takes the game to a new level in every area and we certainly aim to build on our leadership in this segment.
