All you need to know about towbars for Ford Galaxy
Ford first introduced the Galaxy into their range in 2006. The Ford Galaxy is available as a Hatchback, or MPV. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your Ford Galaxy, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of Ford Galaxy below.
Ford Galaxy MPV Towbars
The Ford Galaxy MPV was first released in 2006. To determine which variant of Ford Galaxy you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
Ford Galaxy MPV Nose Weight
MPV models made between 2006 and 2011 have a minimum nose weight of 80 kg and a maximum nose weight of 90 kg, between 2010 and 2015 have a minimum nose weight of 80 kg and a maximum nose weight of 90 kg, vehicles made after 2015 have a minimum nose weight of 90 kg and a maximum nose weight of 90 kg.
What does nose weight mean?
Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.
Ford Galaxy MPV Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your MPV to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for Ford Galaxy MPV
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your MPV, like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.
Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your MPV and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.
Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.
Ford Galaxy MPV Software Update
We will alert you as to whether your MPV requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.
Does my vehicle need a software update?
Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your MPV can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local Ford dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.
Ford Galaxy MPV Bumper Cuts
MPV models made between 2006 and 2011 will require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted, between 2010 and 2015 will require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted, vehicles made after 2015 will require a visible bumper cut in order to be fitted.
Does my vehicle need a bumper cut?
Some towbar styles might require a bumper cut in order to be fitted to your vehicle. But, this is improving and newer vehicles are less likely to require a bumper cut due to better towbar designs.
Ford Galaxy MPV Towing Capacity
MPV models made between 2006 and 2011 have a towing capacity of 1750 kg to 1750 kg, between 2010 and 2015 have a towing capacity of 1750 kg to 1750 kg, vehicles made after 2015 have a towing capacity of 2000 kg to 2000 kg.
Be sure to check the EXACT towing capacity of your vehicle before towing on your VIN plate.
What is towing capacity?
Towing capacity is the weight that your MPV is capable of towing safely, but it can vary even across the same model of car. It is important to note that the capacity of the towbar and the towing capacity of the MPV may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
