Less tiring, more economical journeys - Cruise control with Adjustable Speed Limiter helps keep your vehicle within a pre-set speed limit of your choice. It can save you fuel, minimise the chance of you speeding and, like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your chosen speed whilst saving you from having to keep your foot on the accelerator pedal.
Wherever work takes you, the Transit Chassis-Cab will keep you comfortable and connected. For example, you can use voice control to make and take calls on the move from your well-equipped, stowage-filled cab. A range of other innovative features also maximise the vehicle's effectiveness and practicality out on the road.
SelectShift automatic transmission - The all-new 130PS and 170PS Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines are available with a new six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. This is designed to provide a smooth and relaxing driving experience, especially in busy stop-start traffic. The transmission allows you to change gear manually if you prefer, using the facia-mounted gearshift. It also provides the ability to lock out gears in more challenging driving conditions, e.g. on slippery surfaces or steep gradients.
Less tiring, more economical journeys - Cruise control with Adjustable Speed Limited helps keep your vehicle within a pre-set speed limit of your choice. It can save you fuel, minimise the chance of you speeding and, like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your chosen speed whilst saving you from having to keep your foot ont he accelerator pedal.
An advanced system to help you stay in lane - If it detects that you're accidentally drifting uot of lane, Lane-Keeping Alert can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning.
Driver Alert System tells you when you're getting tired - Driver Alert System constantly monitors your driving behaviour and is designed to detect any changes that could be caused by fatigue. If the system identifies you're becoming less vigilant, a warning icon appears in the display, suggesting you take a break. If you driving alertness further declines, the message is repeated and combined with a chime.
Maximum cornering control - Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That's 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corner and over undulations in the road.
Confidence in changeable conditions - An intelligent AWD systems can determine how much grip, corning balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this 'torque on demand' system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.
Extra control during hill starts - Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to be 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.
Side Wind Stabilisation - Helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds.
Control features that adapt to your load - Load Adaptive Control adjust the Electronic Stability Control according to the overall weight your transit Chassis-Cab is carrying. This ensures control and stability whether empty or fully loaded.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance - An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
Comfort & Convenience
The Transit Chassis-Cab is designed to deliver maximum utility. It also incorporates features and technologies specifically designed to help you. As soon as you've experienced them, you'll wonder how you ever did without them.
Go hands-free with SYNC3 - SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It's faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features APPLink, Apple's CarPlay and Androids Auto, to display your smartphones information on the touchscreen.
In the driving seat - The driving seat is fully adjustable, along wih the steering wheel (both for rake and reach), so you can find your ideal driving position. There's a built-in armrest too, while adjustable lumbar support, heated seats and a power adjustable driver's deat are options. In fact, while providing commercial vehicle standards of durability, the seats are designed to be as comfortable as those you'd find in a car.
A system that entertains and informs - A wide range of advanced in-car entertainment and information options includes DAB radio, CD player, USB port, Premium speakers, navigation and Ford SYNC with voice control.
Ford Easy-Fuel, for foolproof filling-up - This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, because the wrong nozzle simply wont fit. Even better, as Ford Easy-Fuel is a capless system, you'll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
Wing mirror that can protect themselves - to avoid accidental damage, power-foldable mirrors fold inwards when you're parked. Tucked back, they also protect the stylish integrated indicators.
Open and lose your windows with a single touch - At the touch of a button you can fully open or close all windows.
Power Sockets - As well as two 12V power sockets, you can specify an optional 150 Watt/230V socket located between the driver's and passengers' seats: ideal for charging tools, laptops or other equipment without the need for special adaptors.
Performance & Efficiency
A range of all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 Litre TDCi engines offer increased power and at the same time, deliver improved fuel economy and lower emissions. In addition, they already meet strict Euro Stage 6 emissions standards. Combined with technologies that include Smart Regenerative Charging, Acceleration Control and Auto-Start-Stop, Transit Chassis Cab is designed to minimise your fuel bills, lower your cost of ownership and maximise the return on your valuable investment.
Ford EcoBlue TDCi engines - Transit Chassis Cab's all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines combine outstanding performance and power with lower fuel consumption and emissions. To lower running costs further, service intervals are now up to 36,000 miles or 2 years, whichever occurs first. Available in three power outputs of 105PS/360Nm, 130PS/385Nm and 170PS/405Nm, there's an option to suit your needs.
Greater performance. Fewer emissions - The advanced all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi diesel engines comply with the stringent Euro 6 emissions standard, with specifies a 55% reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions versus the Euro 5 emissions standard.
An additive that removes pollution - A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions int he exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle's exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.
Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop - 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 cluth 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).
Re-charge your battery more efficiently - Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only changes the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoid doing so when you're pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.
Acceleration Control helps you drive more economically - 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.
More fuel-efficient gear changes - A Shift indicator light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It's a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
Safety & Security
From taking the stress out of hill starts to a system that can eliminate excessive wheelspin: a long list of technologies can assist you. There's also a wide range of safety systems to help protect you, your vehicle and its cargo.
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.
Continuous protection against rolling over - Ford's unique roll-rate sensor helps the Roll Stability Control system to keep the tyres grounded, specially under conditions where there's a high Centre of gravity and when driving through off-camber turns.
Keeping your trailer safely in line - Trailer Sway Control detects 'snaking' or trailer sway and reduces tour 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.
Helping you 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.
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 indiviual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when your accelerating.
Extra power for emergency braking - 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. To further reduce your stopping distance, new Hydraulic Rear Boost provides additional brake pressure on the rear braking suring an emergency stop, when the ABS is activated.
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.
Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags - Transit Chassic 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 traveling 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.
You choose which doors you want to lock and unlock - The Transit Chassis Cab had remote control central door locking, which is more secure than ever.
An extra, independent back-up alarm - A battery back-up sounder is an additional, secondary alarm system that comes with the Thatcham alarm option. This sounds a siren when the alarm is triggered and because it has its own built-in power source, will activate even if someone disconnects the main vehicle battery.
Anti-tamper door locks - All doors locks are protected by anti-tamper shielding designed to prevent them being broken by force.
Two high-Lever Alarm options - An optional perimeter alarm protects your vehicle by sounding if the doors or bonnet are opened by force. For even more protection (and deterrence) choose a Thatcham Category 1 alarm. This sophisticated system automatically arms itself when you lock the vehicle and sounds a powerful alarm if triggered by forced entry, the vehicle being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside.
