MK3 Exterior
First and foremost among the goals of the design team of the new Galaxy was to provide a true seven–seat vehicle that offers first–class travel throughout. Another objective was to offer more space than other vehicles in the segment without sacrificing a luxurious and stylish exterior appearance.
Dynamic appearance – The wider track (1,589mm, +59mm front,/1,605 mm, + 81mm rear vs. previous model) is one of the features that lend Galaxy a more dynamic appearance. Pronounced wheel arches and the strong line which runs from behind the front wing to the tail lamp strongly enhance the Galaxy's modern profile, and are also typical elements of Ford's 'kinetic design' form language.

Front–end styling – The front end of the Galaxy is characterised by its distinctively angled nose and dynamic headlamps which give it a purposeful appearance. Fog lamps are encased neatly in the lower bumper and set wide to each side, a trait which expresses the vehicle's width and accentuates its lower stance.

Galaxy can be specified with Ford's Adaptive Front Light System (AFLS) as one of two lighting options. AFLS uses cost–effective halogen lights which swivel according to the steering angle – with up to 12 degrees of movement – to provide better visibility around corners.
For high–series models, an optional Bi–Xenon Adaptive Front Lighting system is available which includes additional static cornering lights at speeds under 70 kph, plus automatic headlamp levelling and washer jets.

Rear styling
– Ford's Design team wanted to create significant differentiation between Galaxy and the new Ford S–MAX at the rear of the vehicle despite their technical relationship. For Galaxy, this was accomplished thanks to the higher roofline at the rear, and by stretching the rear glass area down between the distinctive tail lamps. The distinctive new tail lamp design complements the rear screen and features a clear lens that creates a neat, jewelled effect.

Panorama roof – A new feature for Galaxy is an optional fixed glass panorama roof. Extending to just above the backrest of the second row seat, this impressive aperture gives the occupants an open, airy feel.

Large Glass Area – New Galaxy's spacious and sophisticated appearance is enhanced by large windows around the vehicle. These also allow more daylight into the interior, enhancing the feeling of space. Optional second and third row pull–up window blinds can also be specified.

Roof Carrier System – New Galaxy also offers a specially designed roof carrier system which is integrated into the roofline. C–channels with sliding crossbars integrate neatly into the roofline. When not in use, the crossbars can be positioned at the rear of the vehicle, and have been aerodynamically developed to function as a spoiler. Air flow management over the racks also helps to keep the rear window clearer during wet driving conditions.

A Larger Galaxy – The new Galaxy's overall length has increased by 179mm over the prior model (4,820mm vs. 4,641mm). Vehicle width has increased by 60mm (1,854mm vs. 1,794mm), giving Galaxy a more purposeful stance. The overall height was reduced slightly – 14mm – over the current model (1,676mm vs. 1,690mm).

Colours, Wheels and Tyres – The new Ford Galaxy is available in a range of three solid and ten optional metallic colours, depending on market and on series.
Depending on market and series, new Galaxy comes with either 16–inch steel or 16–inch and 17–inch alloy wheels. A new range of wheelcovers for steel wheels and multi–spoke alloy wheels have been specially designed to complement the exterior design and stance of the new Galaxy.
