Ducato Passenger Transport

The Safety of a New Generation

Ducato has become a by-word for top-class safety and top-class performance. Because the Ducato is equipped with all the most advanced control and safety technology.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)

The ESC cuts in automatically in emergency situations, such as if you have to swerve suddenly to avoid an obstacle. It monitors parameters such as lateral acceleration, speed, grip and steering wheel angle. It processes the data and, if necessary, modulates the torque and braking system to restore perfect stability to the vehicle.

ROLL OVER MITIGATION

Rollover mitigation is a new support system for the ESC. It prevents rollover risk situations at high speed and reduces roll when cornering at low speed.

HILL HOLDER

Brakes the vehicle on hill-starts, and stops it rolling backwards without any handbrake input from the driver. It then releases the brake automatically.

LOAD ADAPTIVE CONTROL

The Load Adaptive Control integrated into the ESC detects vehicle load conditions, such as weight and centre of gravity. When these parameters change, it calculates new settings and cut-in thresholds and sends them to the ABS, ASR, ESC and Rollover Mitigation functions, so as to maximise their efficiency at all times.

The Technology of a New Generation

Safety and efficiency go hand-in-hand on the Ducato. You can access all infotainment devices, safety systems and driver aids directly from the driver’s seat. Wherever your work takes you, you’ll have everything under full control with the Ducato.

Multimedia

Its essential for every worker to have simple and effective access to their instruments. All infotainment devices, safety and driving assistance systems can be accessed easily from the driver’s seat. All the radios are equipped with the Bluetooth® system for hands-free calls plus, on request, a DAB receiver (Digital Audio Broadcasting). The Uconnect™ Radio, with CD player and steering wheel controls, is equipped with a 5” colour touchscreen from which it is possible to manage radio stations, phone calls and SMSs, as well the display view from the rear camera.
