Safety & Security

From alerting you to potential collision hazards, to clever systems that help you to maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That’s why the Transit Chassis Cab comes loaded with clever driver assistance technologies and security systems, all aimed at keeping you, your vehicle and its cargo protected.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses RADAR and camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions. Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. The system senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.

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.

Helping you to stay in control

Curve Control senses when a driver takes a curve too quickly, and can rapidly reduce engine torque – and apply brakes to individual wheels – to help keep the vehicle safely under control.

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.

Keeping your trailer safely in line

Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.

Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags

Transit Chassis Cab is available with curtain, driver, passenger and side airbags. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response. If you want your passenger airbag switched off, for example if a baby or toddler is travelling in a rear-facing seat, just flick a switch to deactivate it. To provide you with a useful reminder, this ‘off’ status is shown by a light in the instrument cluster.

Protecting and securing your Transit from thieves

A Thatcham Category 1 alarm is a sophisticated system that automatically arms itself when you double-lock the vehicle and will sound a powerful alarm if triggered by forced entry, the vehicle being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside. The technology is also designed to help prevent unwanted towing of the vehicle. All door locks on the new Transit Chassis Cab are protected by anti-tamper shielding designed to prevent them being broken by force. And with remote control central door locking now more secure than ever, you choose which individual doors to lock and unlock.

An early warning if a tyre is going flat

If any of your tyres starts to lose pressure during your journey, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns you immediately if there’s a puncture by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.
