Ford announced its 2016 model year Transit will feature new additions, including SYNC 3, rearview camera technology and new customization options.
Ford’s new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system available on Transit for 2016 — features faster performance, more conversational voice recognition, a more innovative smartphone-like touchscreen and easier-to-understand graphical interface to help Ford customers connect on the road.
Dual sliding side cargo doors also will be available for the first time on Ford Transit medium- and high-roof vans — meaning customers can choose from 58 vehicle configurations, up from 47 in the 2015 model year. With the introduction of a dual sliding door option on the 2016 Transit van, the vehicle with the most configurations in its class just got even more flexible.
Transit fleet customers can add an available speed limitation feature that caps top speed at 70 mph – providing another option to help encourage safe driving habits and help reduce fuel costs. Speeds already can be limited to 65 mph and 75 mph on 2015 Ford Transit models.
Ford will also offer four new paint colors debut for the 2016 model year: Shadow Black, Caribou, Magnetic and Race Red.
