Verdict

The Ford Kuga 2.5 PHEV and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1200 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 good. 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 2400 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 3000 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 75 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 23%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 21% not to drive.
