Capability that measures up big.
The Transit Connect Cargo Van comes with two technologies you’ll find reassuring:
(1) When brake pedal pressure applied is insufficient to meet a hard stopping situation, Emergency Brake Assist10 automatically supplies the amount of force needed to reduce the stopping distance.
(2) When you’re stopped on an incline, Hill Start Assist10 automatically holds the brake to help prevent backward roll while you’re going from the brake pedal to the accelerator. This is especially helpful when hauling a heavy load, a task the Transit Connect is quite familiar with....less
Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) operates more efficiently than conventional steering with an electric motor instead of a power-draining hydraulic pump. Its speed-sensitive technology adapts to changing conditions to improve manoeuvrability and handling. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel of the wheel during low-speed manoeuvres, which becomes firmer as speed increases. That’s not all. EPAS can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and can also dampen wheel vibrations.
