Ford Transit receives major technology upgrade
Ford is significantly boosting the productivity of its Transit commercial vehicle with a major technology and specification upgrade that introduces new driver assistance and connectivity features, while also standardising key active safety technologies on volume-selling models.
In a significant move to extend the fitment of active safety technologies already recognised with a Gold Award by independent vehicle safety authority Euro NCAP, Ford is fitting Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection autonomous emergency braking technology and Lane-Keeping System as standard on all Ford Transit Trend, Limited and Trail models from spring 2022 – meaning that over 60 per cent of Transits sold across Europe will now include these features.
Ford is also extending its technology leadership in the Transit segment with a comprehensive programme of updates to provide customers with important new features and capability across the Transit line-up. This includes introducing the advanced new connected SYNC 4 communication and information system with a 12-inch touchscreen, enabling multiple new features and technologies to further support safety and productivity, and expanding the comprehensive suite of driver assistance systems with new features like Reverse Brake Assist and 360 Camera.
“We are sharpening our focus on the productivity of Transit customers, prioritising new technologies that make a real difference to uptime and cost of ownership,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “Transit has always been a technology leader, but this package of upgrades means more drivers than ever before can benefit from our advanced active safety and connectivity technologies, for greater comfort, productivity and peace of mind.”
