The Lancia has 138 horsepowers more horsepower than Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual. The Lancia will be distinctly faster accelerate because of grater horsepower. Also getting ahead of other vehicles while moving along the road should be much more easier for a car equipped with stronger engine.
Due to 81 % more torque, the engine of the Lancia Voyager does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual. This, in turn, have a positive impact on acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h relatively slower than the Lancia. The
difference in the amount of
2.7 s is
is slightly to the Lancia Voyager Van advantage, however, it should
not be vitally taken by you into
as important for buying one of these two
The trunk of the Lancia Voyager Van is 203 percent bigger in relation to the Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual. It is perceptible difference so, in this category the Lancia Voyager Van will be a way more functional. The larger the boot, the more baggage you can transport.
Trunk capacity with seats down
The top speed of the Lancia is greater in relation to the Ford Galaxy III by 15 km/h, which allows the Lancia Voyager Van to travel quicker long distance of highway. The difference at the level of 8 % is little and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the highest torque is produced shows us how fast an engine reaches its best efficiency with increase in rmp. The lower rotational speed or the longer range at which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly influences on the amount of space for passengers as well as stability during driving. The width of the Lancia Voyager Van 3.6 V6 283HP automatic is larger by 134 mm compared with the Ford Galaxy III and is not really important. The medium for the „van” class amounts to around 1,821 millimeters and is by 9 percent smaller than the same attribute of the Lancia Voyager Van 3.6 V6 283HP automatic.
In terms of capacity of a fuel tank it is the Lancia Voyager which can hold 6 liters more fuel in relation to the Ford Galaxy III. The medium fuel container size in the van segment, from which the Lancia comes from, is 70 liters, whereas in van class (represented by the Ford Galaxy III Van) it amounts to 70 l.
Lancia Voyager Van has 8 % longer wheelbase when compared to the Ford Galaxy III Van. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also gives more storage space. However, vehicles having a longer wheelbase will not be as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
Number of gears
The Lancia has a one more
speed than the
Ford. Most often this
extra gear is used as an overdrive thanks to which the previous
speeds can be narrower to
give increased performance in the
lower speeds. One more speed also will result in smaller
fuel consumption and CO2 output.
The engine displacement of the Lancia Voyager is by 1,604 cc greater than the Ford Galaxy III Van. For this reason the Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual will consume less fuel, however, the engine of the Lancia Voyager Van 3.6 V6 283HP automatic will be of better quality, working more smoothly and more durable.
The Lancia Voyager is 8 % longer in comparison to the Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual. Long vehicles more of passenger space and also have more storage space. Although the Lancia seems to be better pick for families or those who value soft, smooth long-distance driving, the Ford may appeal to city drivers because it will not make troubles with parking and will be more maneuverable.
A V engine is a
improved version of a
engine with cylinders arranged in a straight
which as far as we are concerned is
wiser to choose one. Engine of V characteristic
inside a vehicle the Lancia Voyager Van
produces more torque at lower RPM ranges because of
the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of
motor may house more
cylinders without significant growth in its
Smooth engine work and pleasant sound is
to driving fans to a V engine’s advantage.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Ford's production began only 5 years prior to the Lancia Voyager Van 3.6 V6 283HP automatic, the distance in technology applied in both cars is not really huge, however, the Lancia might have slightly more modern solutions used in it.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater possibility of loading big amount of luggage to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 1 percent in favor of the Lancia is not big and should not be really noticeable.
For a comfortable ride around town, it is tempting to opt for an automatic but the choice of transmisison can have a considerable effect on fuel consumption. Automatics may consume about from 5 to 10% more than manuals.
