The Ford Galaxy is a large MPV first introduced in 1995.

The first Galaxy was designed and built by AutoEuropa, a joint venture between Ford and the Volkswagen Group, and also sold by Volkswagen as the Volkswagen Sharan and by SEAT as the Alhambra. All three models were built by Autoeuropa at the joint production plant in Palmela, Portugal.

Both Ford and Volkswagen's designs were complete way back in 1992, and there are various photographs of the cars, as they appeard in 1995, in a range of magazines dating from 1992.

The Galaxy uses predominantly Volkswagen mechanicals, most notably the 2.8-litre VR6 petrol engine from the top versions of the VW Golf, as well as VW's 1.9-litre turbodiesel unit. Initially only the 2.0-litre Straight-4 petrol version used a Ford powerplant - this is derived from the Ford I4 DOHC engine. In later years this unit was supplemented by a 2.3-litre 16-valve version first seen in the facelifted Ford Scorpio. This engine was transversially mounted (as with the MKV Escort RS2000) as opposed to longitudinal mounting like in the Ford Scorpio.

All of the VW-sourced engines are supplied with "Ford" rocker covers, despite being of Volkswagen design. All automatic transmissions were VW AG4 boxes, but manual gearboxes on all engines were VXT75 5 speed (modified versions of the trusted Ford MT75 5 speed set-up to suit the transverse engine layout).

The original interior used a mix of both Ford and VW components, using a Golf-derived instrument pack, and most of the switchgear, while the curved fascia moulding was of Ford design, heavily reminiscent of that used in the Ford Mondeo.

A major redesign in 2000 saw the Galaxy distance itself from its VW Group competitors. The car adopted the Ford corporate front end, while the interior benefited from an all-new dash, utilising high-quality materials and a design akin to the third-generation Ford Mondeo, introduced at a similar time as the new Galaxy. Also new engines were available across the range, the newer 24v VR6 along with VW's Pumpe-Düse (pd) TDI engines available in 90 (only on LX models), 115, 130 and 150bhp (112kW) forms, these were matched to a 6 speed manual transmission, a 4 speed automatic transmission with manual sequential shift operation and a 5 speed automatic transmission (Auto boxes were only available on 115PS (113hp/85kW) variant).
