Verdict

The Ford Transit Connect 1.5 TDCi 100 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1140 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general more than sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 2500 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 55 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 15%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.
