Safety & Security

From monitoring your vehicle’s behaviour, to a system that can call the emergency services for you: a long list of technologies can prepare and protect drivers and passengers from almost every eventuality. Advanced security systems also exist to offer maximum protection for your Transit Minibus and peace of mind for you.

Features shown on this page may only be available on selected models. Where available, these features may be optional extras at additional cost. For more info, download price list to view current UK specifications.

Stay in control whatever the conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.

Curvature Control

Curvature Control

Curvature Control is designed to help you maintain control of your Minibus if it enters a curve and is travelling too quickly. If the system detects understeer and senses the vehicle may be losing control, it first reduces engine torque then applies braking to help slow you down. This unique technology is particularly effective (and most reassuring) on banked curves with a camber, such as motorway turn-off ramps.

Extra power for emergency braking

Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Control system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.

Emergency Brake Assist
Roll Stability Control (RSC)

Continuous protection against rolling over

Ford’s unique roll-rate sensor helps the Roll Stability Control system to keep the tyres grounded, specifically under conditions where there’s a high centre of gravity and when driving through off-camber turns.

Maximum grip with minimum effort

An advanced Traction Control System eliminates excessive wheelspin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating.

Traction Control System (TCS)
Enhanced airbag system for maximum protection

Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags

A range of airbags is fitted either as standard or as available options. Driver and passenger airbags are standard on Transit Minibus. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response.

Perimeter alarm for added security

An optional perimeter alarm protects your vehicle by sounding if the doors or bonnet are opened by force.
