Ford will be bringing the S-Max and the Galaxy facelifted models to the Brussels Motor Show in January.  The news comes by way of Belgian website, which also obtained official photos of the pair.

Similar to the Ford Fiesta and the Ford C-Max, the 2010 Galaxy MPV and the 2010 S-Max will come with a bigger lower grille.  LED driving lights are also a welcomed addition, as are the new wheels.  New rear light clusters also extend further.  Strangely, engineers opted to use black plastic on the rear bumper, instead of body-colored paint.

Changes for the Galaxy are more subtle with a redesigned front bumper with larger fog lamps and a reshaped upper grille.

Ford will also introduce a new 2.0-liter diesel engine, possibly replacing the 1.8-liter diesel on offer.  This engine may be offered in 115-, 140-, and 163-horsepower versions.  A new, Volvo/Ford joint turbocharged, 203 hp 2.0-liter engine will also be on offer instead of the 2.3-liter model.  Both engines will likely produce significantly lower emissions than the engines being replaced.

Expect to hear more about the two models, and possibly the Ford Mondeo, in the near future.
