Traction assist on a Transit - Spospe
I am about to buy a new shape Ford Transit and have been offered "Traction Assist" as a £75 (plus VAT) option. My questions are....

1) what is Traction Assist?

2) Is it worth the extra?

Thanks for any advice.

I think that this is a limited traction control system. Instead of modulating the brake on each individual driven wheel to prevent wheelspin, it just reduces engine power.

Quick Google found this - Ford US site not UK Transit of course

"This year, 4x2 V-8 models can be ordered with Traction Assist to improve acceleration and stability on slippery surfaces."

Thanks for the replies, but does anyone have experience of this system and does it actually help?
