Technology For Confidence On The Road.
The Transit Connect Cargo Van offers a wide range of available technologies to help you be aware of your surroundings and ever-changing traffic conditions. From the driveway to the highway, the available Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver-assist technologies help keep you connected and confident as you take to the road and move your business forward.
Pre-Collision Assist With Automatic Emergency Braking
If the system’s sensors detect a potential collision with a car or pedestrian in front of you, a warning flashes and an audible alert sounds. Also, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake. If you do not take corrective action and a collision is imminent, the brakes can automatically apply.
Adaptive Cruise Control
The available Adaptive Cruise Control slows down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has slowed. As soon as things clear, you’ll resume your preset speed.
The available Lane-Keeping System, included with available Adaptive Cruise Control, employs a camera mounted behind the windshield which scans the road lane markings to determine vehicle position and to detect an unintentional lane departure. Operational during day or night, the Lane-Keeping System warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure.*
Available Auto High-Beam Headlamps
Auto High-Beam Headlamps can sense poor lighting conditions and switch on to light your path ahead. They can even sense oncoming headlights and dim automatically, so you don’t have to worry about blinding other drivers. They can help you keep your focus on the road – and both hands on the wheel.
Available BLIS® With Cross-Traffic Alert
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-Traffic Alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
Rear View Camera
The Rear View Camera provides a video image on the center-stack screen of the area behind your vehicle. The camera is activated when you shift into Reverse and back up slowly. The screen has guides to help you align your vehicle with a trailer or assist you with backing up in tight places.
For compatible devices, an available wireless inductive phone charger* lets you charge your phone by just setting it down. This means no more struggling with ports, plugs or charging cables.
*Available Qi wireless charging may not be compatible with all mobile phones.
Fordpass™ Connect With 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot
With FordPass™ Connect,* Ford owners and passengers can enjoy an available 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, powered by AT&T. Up to 10 devices can connect at once, and you can use FordPass to keep track of your Wi-Fi data usage. You can access the hotspot up to 50 feet outside the vehicle. Now you can stay connected, even as you roam the highways.
*FordPass Connect (optional on select vehicles).

EcoMode And EcoCoach
With the standard 2.0L engine, EcoMode and EcoCoach monitor fuel economy and encourage eco-conscious driving behaviors.
Forward And Reverse Sensing Systems
If your vehicle is in Drive and moving slowly, the Forward Sensing System will sound a high-pitched beeping tone if something is there in front of you. The beeps will become more rapid as you approach an object, and within 12 inches they become a solid tone. The sensors turn off when you put your vehicle in Park or Neutral. The Reverse Sensing System works the same way using sensors in the rear bumper.
Side-Wind Stabilization System
Standard side-wind stabilization technology is designed to help reduce driver stress while operating a vehicle in high winds. The system monitors sensors and, if a strong wind gust is detected, it carefully applies the brakes on one side to help the driver stay in his/her lane. It works alongside Roll Stability Control™ on slippery surfaces – to help avoid skids, lateral slides and potential vehicle rollovers.

Curve Control helps drivers maintain control when entering a curve too fast by reducing engine torque and applying four-wheel braking to reduce speed.
AdvanceTrac® With RSC® (Roll Stability Control™ )
Standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) uses two gyroscopic sensors to monitoring yaw and roll rates, helping you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. It also helps maintain control on road conditions such as ice, gravel or rain.
Trailer Sway Control
Available trailer sway control helps you tow more confidently by automatically determining from the motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying. It then takes measures, such as applying precise braking or reducing engine torque, to help you keep both the vehicle and the trailer under control.
