Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. You can use voice commands to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod® too, or stream music from a Bluetooth®- compatible phone. The system even reads your incoming texts aloud (dependent on the mobile phone that is connected)
With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your vehicle to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
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 the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.
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.
Operating a large passenger vehicle comes with a unique set of needs and responsibilities. So the Transit Minibus is specially designed to fulfil this specific task. It incorporates many innovative, ingenious and thoughtful features, all there to maximise the comfort, convenience and safety of everyone on-board.
Automatic headlights use a sensor that detects failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. This triggers the automatic headlights to turn themselves on, which can make driving both easier and safer.
An ergonomically designed driver’s seat includes optional armrest and lumbar support. It’s also heated and is 10-way electrically adjustable. So it’s easy to find your ideal driving position, or change it for different drivers.
If it detects that you’re accidentally drifting out of lane, Lane-Keeping Alert can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning.
If you’re indicating and turning into a road or pulling into a parking space, a light within the headlamp, on the turning side, automatically illuminates the side of the road to give you enhanced visibility through the turn.
A range of 2.2 litre TDCi HD diesel engines 125PS or 155PS RWD and which are Euro VI compliant , with 6-speed transmissions, deliver high levels of power and torque along with exceptional fuel efficiency to keep your running costs low. These advanced powertrains are also engineered to make journeys smoother and more relaxing for drivers and passengers alike.
This innovative option controls the rate of acceleration according to whether your vehicle is un-laden or part-laden. As a result, you can expect to lower your fuel consumption by up to 15%, depending on your driving style. The technology can also help reduce the amount of wear and tear on the engine, brakes and tyres, along with other components.
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
