Ford adds new powertrains and technology to S-Max and Galaxy MPVs

Ford S-Max has been given new powertrains and technologies

Ford's S-Max and Galaxy MPVs are now available with the manufacturer's 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine, featuring power outputs from 120PS to 240PS, as well as a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Other changes include the availability of new technologies such as adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality when combined with the eight-speed automatic, an enhanced version of Ford’s blind spot information system that can detect approaching vehicles at greater distance; and a new ClearView wiper system for improved visibility.

Ford says the new engine meets the laster Euro 6 emissions standards calculated using the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedrure (WLTP). 

It adds that the improvements will deliver greater fuel efficiency and performance, but has not yet realised the new model's CO2 emissions or fuel economy figures.

Roelant de Waard, Ford marketing, sales and service vice-president, said: “Our uniquely stylish S-Max and hugely practical Galaxy are now even more compelling offerings, with advanced powertrain and driver assistance technologies that make driving in any scenario less stressful.

“Our 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue engine and eight-speed automatic transmission deliver the powerful, responsive performance of a petrol powertrain, with optimised diesel fuel efficiency.”
