Now factor in the intelligent options available like the latest SYNC® 3 connectivity system — and your decision to go with the Transit Connect becomes just that much smarter.

Ford Telematics™ Powered by Telogis®

Ford Telematics powered by Telogis® enables fleet managers to monitor vehicle operations and get reports and alerts in real time. Vehicle data are collected and a secure web-based application presents fleet data visually. Maintenance reminders are provided based on actual vehicle conditions to lower costs, reduce downtime, and help stay within recommended service intervals. Driving behavior such as safety belt use, speeding, hard braking and accelerating can be monitored. Plus, Ford Telematics is factory-orderable—the cost can be capitalized with the vehicle purchase.

Rear View Camera

Rear View Camera

The compact and maneuverable Transit Connect is designed to work efficiently in tight places, especially when you’re making deliveries in congested areas. So the available rear view camera is a feature you won’t want to be without. When you shift into Reverse, it displays a video image of what’s behind your vehicle in the screen on the center stack. It also provides guidelines to help you align your vehicle trailer hitch with the trailer’s hitch receiver. The rearview camera is available with select entertainment systems.
Airbag protection for all occupants


All Transit Connect models are equipped with front- and side-impact airbags for the driver and front passenger. And the Safety Canopy® System with side-curtain airbags and rollover sensor helps protect front seat occupants, as well as passenger wagon rear seat outboard occupants. Located in the roof side rail behind the headliner, the side-curtain airbags are designed to stay inflated longer for added protection in a rollover or in multiple side impacts.
Always wear your safety belt and secure children in the rear seat, where available.


MyKey®, standard in Transit Connect XLT and Titanium models, lets you configure certain vehicle settings. It’s helpful when loaning your vehicle and is also used by fleet managers to set parameters for their drivers. Configurable features include:

• Vehicle top speed limited to 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph

• Speed reminder chime set at 45, 55 or 65 mph

• Radio volume limited to 45 percent

• Belt-Minder® set to chime continuously while muting the audio system until the safety belt is buckled

• Low-fuel warning set sooner (75 miles to empty)

• Standard in XLT and Titanium models

Forward and reverse sensing systems

Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems

The available Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems use ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers to audibly alert you to certain objects when you’re moving forward or backing up at a slow speed. The closer you get, the quicker it beeps.10
