> Mid sized sedan

....Jesus that's got to be small

@Sir_Boops

Automakers understate the tow capacity of sedans in the US to sell more profitable pickup trucks. The Ford Fusion sedan in the US has a 1000 pound tow rating. The similar size Ford Mondeo sedan in the UK has a 4400 pound max rating.

@mike The mondeo is a diesel and the fusion is gas

That could do it diesel would have that torque~

@Sir_Boops
Good catch. I did miss that. But even then, there is a gas engine available on the Mondeo and the tow rating for that trim level is 1250kg / 2750 pounds, comfortably ahead of the Fusion tow rating.

@mike What transmission is that using stick or auto?

The avarage auto one here with the I4 is rated for 1 ton and that 750lbs could be them under rating or perhaps different transmissions

I got the information from the brochure here: ford.co.uk/content/dam/guxeu/u If you scroll through, all the diesel engines are 2 liters. The gas/petrol engine is 1.5 liters. On page 24 and 25 the lowest (braked) tow rating for 1.5 liter engines is 1250 kg with the 6 speed manual, 1450 kg with the 6 speed auto.

@mike

Well 1.5l to 1.5l

NA > 0.5 ton
EU > 1.5 ton

Now there's the difference

I wonder what makes that difference now :thonkery:
