Driving Experience

The New Transit Minibus features a range of advanced technologies and smart systems. From increasing your awareness on the road, to improving efficiency, and even making long drives less stressful. Every system is purpose-built to make your driving experience better than ever.

A more intelligent cruise control

Set your own pace with Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control. The system can identify the prevailing speed limit and automatically maintain your selected speed within the limit detected. Advanced radar technology scans for slower traffic in front of you, and can automatically adjust your speed to maintain a pre-set gap from the vehicle ahead. When the traffic has cleared, your vehicle will resume its pre-selected speed. (Option, requires SYNC 3 with Navigation)

Easier, safer reversing

Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into tight spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.

Sees what’s coming from either side

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.

Spots the vehicles you might miss

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.

Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation

Electric power-assisted steering provides varying amounts of assistance depending on vehicle speed. The system also helps to improve to improve fuel economy by using electric power instead of drawing power from the engine.

New LED daytime running lights for style and visibility

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. A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead, stopping you dazzling other drivers. It then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
