In the year 1995, Ford Motor Company introduced the Ford Galaxy, a large multi purpose vehicle. In the year 2006, Ford introduced the second generation Ford Galaxy, which was sold beside the shorter large MPV known as the S MAX.
In Argentina, the Ford Galaxy was sold as a rebadged version of the Volkswagen Santana, which resembled Brazilâ€™s Ford Versailles vehicle.
The very first Ford Galaxy was built and designed as a joint venture between Volkswagen and Ford. The Galaxy was then sold as the Sharan by Volkswagen. SEAT sold the vehicle as the Alhambra. All three models of this vehicle were built in Portugal at Autoeuropa, which is situated in the town of Palmela.
In the year 2006, the second generation of Ford Galaxy was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle was sold alongside the S MAX beginning in June of that year.
The second generation Ford Galaxy is a lot bigger than the car it succeeds. It boasts an entirely new all Ford design, free of Volkswagen content. The Ford Galaxy is no longer produced in Portugal; it is made at a newly equipped factory in Belgium. The new Ford Galaxy is viewed as being a lot more mainstream than the sporty S MAX vehicle.
