Intelligent Speed Assist

Adaptive cruise control
With Adaptive Cruise Control, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. The built-in RADAR sensor will detect a vehicle ahead and slow your vehicle down to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road ahead is clear the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
Forward Alert is a technology that comes as part of Adaptive Cruise Control and is designed to warn you if you accidentally get too close to the vehicle in front.
The Blind Spot Information System uses RADAR sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your New Transit Custom and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.

Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic), and display a warning on the multi-functional display.
Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them permanent or temporary traffic signs. An icon of that speed or a no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
Automatic headlights use a sensor that detects failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. This automatic triggers the headlights to turn themselves on, aiding the driver in darker conditions.
Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead and then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
Lane-Keeping Alert detects that you’re accidentally drifting out of lane can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning.
The rear-view camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console revealing objects you might miss. The system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera will automatically react when you select reverse gear.
Front and rear parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles in front or behind you. Once the sensors detect an object, they activate a visual and audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
