Galaxy goes upmarket with higher spec

FORD has pushed the Galaxy MPV range upmarket with specification improvements and the addition of two new luxury models and a 4x4 derivative. The existing line-up is supplemented by Ghia X and Ultima versions, with the former available in V6 form with four wheel drive. Air conditioning becomes standard from the GLX upwards.

The £28,470 flagship Ultima version (including £470 delivery charge) comes with Mica Stone paint and six captain's chairs, leather trim, air conditioning, alloy wheels, CD multichanger and automatic climate control and is only available with the V6 engine and automatic gearbox.

At £23,890, the V6 Ghia X offers much the same standard of specification, but omits leather trim and wood-effect facia. It is also available with the TD engine and as a 4x4 with V6 auto power at £26,215. The new Ghia includes manual air conditioning and a quick clear windscreen and a seven-seat option is available for the first time. The current six-seat captain's chair configuration remains available as a no-cost option. The 2.0 manual Ghia costs £23,670.

On the GLX, manual air conditioning becomes standard, but the previously standard sunroof now costs extra, while the Aspen gets body-coloured bumpers. The 2.0 seven-seat manual GLX costs £19,060 while the equivalent Aspen costs £17,690.
