Clever technologies as standard

When it’s time to hit the road on your next tour, a day at the beach or pick up the kids from school the Air camper van will get you there in comfort and style. The Air comes with Ford’s latest driving technology for a truely enjoyable and safe driving experience as standard. Both manual and automatic gearbox options are available.

Key technologies include:

- Start-Stop system -

- Ford Smart Regenerative Charging -

- Gearshift Indicator light – to aid economical driving -

- Acceleration Control – unique engine calibration helps to reduce fuel consumption when the vehicle is driven unladen -

- Ford Battery Management System – improves battery life, fuel consumption and ensures ready-to-go reliability -

- Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system - uses AdBlue® to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water -

- Ford Easy Fuel capless refuelling system helps avoid accidentally filling up with the wrong fuel -

Power without compromise


The Air is powered by the latest high-performance 170PS Ford EcoBlue diesel engine. Powerful, clean and refined, it builds on the industry-leading performance and technology of Ford’s award-winning EcoBoost petrol engines. Both manual and automatic gearbox options are available.

Enhanced Active Park Assist

Active Park Assist helps take the anxiety out of parallel parking. Once the system locates a suitable parking space, you shift, accelerate and brake while the system does the steering. It’s that simple. And as your Air is equipped with Enhanced Active Park Assist, you also get help getting out of a tight parallel parking spot, as well as assistance in reverse perpendicular parking.

Driver Assistance technology that helps you to take action

Ford SYNC 3 integrates seamlessly with your smartphone, letting you control everything from phone calls and text messaging to music and satellite navigation – all via the 8” touchscreen or through remarkably simple voice commands. Map updates help to keep you on track and on time and are complimentary for 2 years following vehicle registration. 

Pre-Collision Assist


Uses radar and a camera to keep a watchful eye on the road ahead. The system monitors your proximity to other vehicles and pedestrians – even in the dark, when illuminated by the vehicle’s headlights – and can alert you to a potential collision. Active Braking Ø2) pre-charges the braking system and can automatically apply the brakes to help mitigate the effect of any impact.

Blind Spot Information System

A Blind Spot Information System Ø2) can help you change lanes more safely. As another vehicle – a car, van or lorry – enters your blind spot whilst travelling, the system is designed to alert you with a warning light clearly displayed in the corresponding door mirror.

Lane-Keeping Alert*

Can recognise when you approach lanemarkings without using the indicator and alert you with vibrations through the steering wheel. 

Driver Alert

Designed to warn you if the system detects driving behaviour that indicates a drop in alertness levels, driver alert is standard. Ø2)

Torque Vectoring Control

Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second (that’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye). Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the driven wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you around corners and over undulations in the road.


Cross Traffic Alert

Cross Traffic Alert Ø2) scans left and right as you reverse from a perpendicular parking space. If a moving vehicle or other hazard is detected, the system will alert you with visual and audible warnings. 

Traffic Sign Recognition

Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.

11.6m turning circle

With its impressive 11.6 m kerb-to-kerb turning circle, the Air offers great maneuverability.

SideWind Stabilisation Ø1)

Helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds.

Traction Control 1)

Eliminates excessive wheelspin and provides the best possible grip, performance and stability, when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating. 

Emergency Brake Assist Ø1)

Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Control system, which senses how much pressure applied to the brake and automatically increases it, if necessary.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Ø1)

Designed to help you maintain control in extreme driving conditions. It senses when you are deviating from your chosen line and aims to keep you on track by automatically regulating braking and engine output.

Trailer Sway Control Ø1)

Designed to detect when trailer sway occurs and to help counteract it to bring the trailer under control. (Standard, but activated with optional Ford trailer tow attachment).

Hill Start Assist Ø2)

Designed to temporarily prevent you from rolling down a slope when you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal. It works in forward and reverse gears.

ØUses sensors. 1)Safety feature. 2)Driver Assistance feature. 

Please note: Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgement and need to control the vehicle.

[1]Speed limit may vary according to road and vehicle size. Driver is responsible for adhering to the speed limit at all times.
