It’s easy to use add-on systems with these available switches. Four circuits can operate high-power relays for heavy-duty accessories. They’re integrated into the instrument panel for fast power access and upfit operation.

10,000-mile service intervals

10,000-Mile Service Intervals

Transit gas engines may allow for up to one year or 10,000 miles without changing the oil, which means you can spend more time on the road and less time maintaining your vehicle. And when it comes to servicing your vehicle, Ford Commercial Vehicle Center dealers are specially trained and equipped to sell, service and finance the most complete line of Class 1–7 work trucks—and America’s best-selling commercial vehicles for 32 straight years.*

Driver-centric interior

Driver-Centric Interior.

While the Transit exterior shows the energy-in-motion influence of Ford kinetic design, the interior is equally dynamic with its driver-focused attitude. The driver’s seat is adjustable to several positions, and the steering wheel tilts and telescopes to provide the most comfortable position for the driver. Seating is available in vinyl and cloth while the available leather-trimmed seats come in two colors, Pewter and Charcoal. The car-like instrument panel features ergonomic gauges and controls that are easy to read and reach. There’s also plenty of storage space as well for carrying a wide assortment of items.
Available lane-keeping alert

Available Lane-Keeping Alert

A camera mounted behind the windshield detects road lane markings to determine vehicle position and to sense lane departures. It can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic driving over a rumble strip, should it detect an unintentional lane departure.10 (Included with SYNC® 3.)
Available programmable battery guard

Programmable Battery Guard

The available battery guard helps keep you from getting stranded with a dead battery. Set a time for battery use without the engine running, create profiles for battery use (heavy or light use, with and without additional batteries) and protect your battery from starter motor overload.
