I guess they use 1 year old chassis sitting in the yard build a 2016 Canyon Star model
They must buy a bunch of rolling chassis

Just did a 5500 mile trip from East Coast to Montana, Wyoming and Dakota areas. Like the advice given before - " usually run 4000 - 4500 Rpm going up. Steep grades, I have slowed or already slowed to 40- 45 Mph. Here I manually shift into 2nd gear. The Ford will hold you here going down, sometimes with some slight braking. I was also trained.... on Descending to "press the brakes just hard enough to notice a slowdown, and use brakes for periods of around 3 seconds before releasing them"
I usually slow down around 5mph when speed starts to pick up.

I do run 5 Star Tuning..... and added RviBrake in the CRv.
Happy Rving......

CC..... Happy Rving!!

Uphill I let tranny pick, however, I always turn on Tow/Haul.
Downhill - Tow/Haul seems to do great job, still have to watch speed, but very little braking needed.
