To date, a few details regarding the 2022 Ford Transit have been revealed, including the fact that it will gain an optional SYNC 4 infotainment system as well as the first-ever all-electric Transit – the E-Transit, which recently began customer testing trials in Europe. Now, the European 2022 Ford Transit has been fully revealed, touting those and a number of other new features.
That includes an expansion of standard active safety features, including the addition of Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane-Keeping System, and autonomous emergency braking technology on all Transit Trend, Limited, and Trail models. Ford’s Quickclear heated windshield, auto lighting, and rain-sensing wipers are now standard on all Trend series vans, while Limited trim vehicles now come standard with SYNC 4, a 12-inch touchscreen, a high-mounted rearview camera with LED downlighter, and Ford’s keyless starter button.
SYNC 4 adds a variety of features to the 2022 Ford Transit, including navigation with cloud-based traffic, weather, and parking updates, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, advanced speech recognition, and a digital owner’s manual. Fleets subscribed to Ford Telematics can also access In-Cab Coaching, and Ford Power-Up software updates can add new features wirelessly. All 2022 Transit models come with FoMoCo’s FordPass Connect modem as standard equipment, giving commercial owners access to the FORDLiive connected uptime system.
In addition to these new features, the 2022 Transit also adds new active safety features including Reverse Brake Assist, which can automatically apply the brakes if it detects that the driver is reversing into an obstacle, another vehicle, pedestrian, or cyclist, as well as the optional 360 Camera feature, which gives the driver a complete birds-eye view of their surroundings. Other new optional features include the Ford KeyFree System, Full Display Interior Mirror, and an electric parking brake.
The 2022 Ford Transit will be available to order from European Transit Centers and Ford dealers in Q4 of 2021.
