This feature helps keep you sure-footed while out making deliveries.

It works by monitoring multiple sensors up to 100 times per second while you’re travelling at speeds of 80 km/h and above. If they detect any gusts, the system will apply the brakes on one side of the Transit Connect within merely 200 milliseconds to help keep the van stable.

But it doesn’t stop there because Side-Wind Stabilization cooperates with the Roll Stability Control system too during drives on slippery surfaces. This helps ensure that sliding, skidding, and tip-overs won’t be a concern while making deliveries around BC.

It has ample cargo space and convenient features designed to make the experience as effortless as possible.

You get up to 3,608 litres (127.4 cu. ft.) of interior space behind the front seats, or a roomy 4,129 litres (145.8 cu. ft.) with the passenger side folded down. Plus, this cargo van boasts enough height to stack packages up to four feet high—and the maximum payload of 730 kg (1,610 lbs) can accomodate lots of heavy items.

The cargo area also boasts a best-in-class width of 124 cm (48.7 inches), but the van’s floor is a convenient 61 cm (24.02 inches) above the ground, so getting items in and out is simple. That way, every delivery around BC will be hassle-free.

This operator-activated system makes any hauling experience safer and more in control.

The Exhaust Braking system comes as a part of the 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel Engine. It works by restricting the flow of waste gases to create back pressure that is then used to slow down the truck smoothly—which is especially ideal for heading down slopes.

Furthermore, because you no longer need to press the pedals as often, brake fade and lining wear reductions come along as another bonus. And with three modes—On, Off, or Auto—BC drivers can choose the setting that works best for them.

And if you travel with kids, the Regular Cab's child tethers can secure their safety seats both up front on the passenger side and in all rear positions. So go ahead and tackle the day; your F-350 has everything covered.

You can choose to install durable vinyl flooring instead of carpet on Platinum, King Ranch, and Limited Super Duty cab models. But if you prefer to keep it, the same material floor mats with ridges are available for protection against mud and snow instead.

On the other hand, you can opt for Tough Bed in your truck—a factory-outfitted spray-in liner that creates a watertight seal to help prevent rust. Plus, this package adds a tailgate guard, an attachment bolt, and black tie-down hooks to secure everything in place while working at a BC job site.
