Verdict

The Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1400 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general good. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. Maybe the engine is not running smoothly at low revs so it is better to shiftdown to the 4th gear, the engine runs in that case 2400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed). In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 55 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 3th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 64 mph (3615 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 20% not to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
