The stability score is calculated with a noseweight of 85 kg. That is 10 kg more than the towball limit of the car!

Good

  • Speed on motorways
  • Hill starts
  • Usability highest gear
  • Higher revs uphill not necessary

Bad

Verdict

The Jaguar XJR 4.0 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1580 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

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 very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 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. 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 81 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 3th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 98 mph (5621 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 42%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 32% 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!
