2022 Ford Transit Connect: Smart Business Features
The 2022 Ford Transit Connect is a well-designed vehicle with an excellent choice of smart features. Unlike the previous model year, the 2022 Transit Connect now falls under the Ford Commercial Solutions family grouping. The software used ensures better control over your business fleet of Ford vehicles. Two major features are:
- Ford Telematics Essentials: Used by Ford vehicles with an embedded modem, this feature provides access to the Vehicle Health data for your vehicles, including odometer reading, malfunction and warning lights related to diagnostic trouble codes, along with info about engine hours, oil life/health, and recalls.
- Ford Data Services™: This provides access to manufacturer-grade data from Ford vehicles to your business system or an authorized telematics service provider through an API.
Additional service features include:
- Ford Telematics™
- Ford Telematics Drive App
- WEX Fleet Fuel Cards
2022 Ford Transit Connect: Safety
Helping you stay safe while doing business is a key aspect of the design method of the 2022 Ford Transit Connect. There are individual features that come together to offer an impressive safety package. For example, Curve Control helps drivers maintain control when entering a curve at an unsafe speed by reducing engine torque and then applying 4-wheel braking to reduce speed.
Another great safety feature is AdvanceTrac™ with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) that utilizes two gyroscopic sensors to measure and monitor yaw and roll rates. This goes even further, helping you maintain control when the system detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. Additionally, it’s helpful at maintaining control on road conditions like ice, rain, or gravel.
Finally, there’s the available trailer sway control that helps your towing experience by automatically if the trailer is swaying from the motions of the vehicle. It then takes appropriate measures, like applying braking or reducing engine torque, to get it back under control.
