The New Transit is packed with advanced technology. All made to help you work smarter and more efficiently. These include the Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert, both designed to alert you to other road users when changing lanes or reversing. Active Park Assist makes parking your van easier. And the new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control helps to make long drives on the motorway less tiring and more economical. There’s even a new high level rear-view camera with Downlighter and front wide-view camera, so you can always see what’s around your van. It’s technology so useful, you’ll wonder how you did without it.
Active Park Assist in the New Transit is able to effortlessly steer you into parking spots. Available in models with an automatic transmission, this smart technology makes parking easier than ever. After activation, you simply select a side of the road. When the system finds a suitable space, it will automatically steer you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake. The new rear-view camera has been mounted at the top of the New Transit to give a better view of whatever’s behind you. A screen built into the centre console reveals objects you might miss, and the system displays virtual lines to help you park in the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.
Electric power-assisted steering automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering.
A tiny panoramic camera on the front of the vehicle relays a split-screen image to your Transit’s multi-function display so you can see vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians coming from either side. This front wide-view camera is invaluable if you’re edging out of a narrow parking space, or in a busy road where your view is obstructed.
The Blind Spot Information System uses radar sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your New Transit and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.
The Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Aid provides gentle steering torque assistance to help guide you back into your lane. If your wheel touches the line or edge of the road, Lane Keeping Alert vibrates the steering wheel and displays a visual warning. The technology automatically deactivates at speeds below 43 mph (64 kph), or can be turned off manually.
Cross Traffic Alert is part of the new Blind Spot Information System. When you’re reversing out of a space and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic), as well as displaying a warning on the multi-functional display.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go technology lets you choose the speed you want the system to maintain. If the built-in radar sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your vehicle to maintain a pre-set distance, and can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop in heavy traffic. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate back up to your chosen speed.
With Selectable Drive Modes, you can tailor how the Transit handles to suit a particular job or terrain. Choose from Normal mode, Slippery mode, Mud/Rut mode, Tow mode, and for maximum fuel efficiency, the new EcoMode.
When the going gets tough, nothing beats the sure-footed performance of all-wheel drive. Available on selected models, Transit’s intelligent AWD system helps you achieve smoother, more confident progress on challenging surfaces.
Highly energy efficient, these advanced daytime running lights provide a signature look that really sets new Transit apart: they’ll help get you noticed during the day and seen clearly at night.
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. Icons for speed limits and no-overtaking signs are displayed on the instrument cluster, alerting you to changing restrictions.
Intelligent Speed Assist works with Adaptive Cruise Control and is designed to enhance your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, a front-facing camera automatically detects the current speed limit. If activated, the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limitTooltip.
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Driver Alert System constantly monitors your driving behaviour and is designed to detect any changes that could be caused by fatigue. If the system identifies you’re becoming less vigilant, a warning icon appears in the display, suggesting you take a break. If your driving alertness further declines, the message is repeated and combined with a chime.
