Ford debuted the new S-MAX and Galaxy at the 2010 Brussels Show, two models that will go on sale in European markets in the upcoming months. Since the only things we got were a couple of pictures showing the two models, here is a recent photo gallery rolled out by Ford showing both cars interacting with the real world.

"S-MAX and Galaxy are the first European Ford models to benefit from our global EcoBoost family of direct-injection, turbocharged, petrol engines delivering more power and performance from a lower displacement powerplant, yet with impressive fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. And that is just the start of the 2010 S-MAX and Galaxy story,"
John Fleming, Ford of Europe CEO said in a release.

Getting back to the engines, the two models are powered by Ford's new Ecoboost engine, which is said to bring a significant cut in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The 2.0l engine configuration generates a maximum power of 203 ps and will join the existing 2.0l Duratorq TDCi diesel with either 140 or 163 horsepower available. Ford's PowerShift double wet-clutch transmission system is now available for the first time on Ford's large car range and is offered as standard for the EcoBoost petrol engine and option for diesel configurations.

"With the 2.0-litre engine catering for applications of 200 PS and above, the 1.6-litre engine spanning the 150-180 PS range, and the small-capacity unit meeting the demand for engines in the sub-130 PS segment, over time we will offer a high-efficiency low-CO2 Ford EcoBoost engine for all of our major European vehicle lines," said Fleming.
