Verdict

The Ford Transit Connect 1.0 EcoBoost and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1200 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general sufficient. Under most 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 2800 rpm. 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 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 60 mph. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 11%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 23% to drive.

Results

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