Ford released a video showing how the BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) works using a Mustang but the same system works for the 2020 Ford Transit. For buyers not familiar with how this works, this gives you a complete view of it along with the Cross Traffic Alert that is especially helpful when backing up.

Here is the link to this video.

When you have a Transit, especially the 148" WB and the 148" Extended WB this can be a very good option to have especially if you do a lot of highway driving or parking in areas where other vehicles may be passing behind you. It is a $595 MSRP option for the Transit and in some cases your insurance company may give you a discount on your coverage for having this option.

Very good info. Thanks. What is the difference between BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) and Side Sensing System? Which one should I order?

It really depends on what you want to see or sense from inside the vehicle. The Side Sensing System is required if you get the Enhanced Active Park Assist that helps you park the Transit.

This link will send you to the Ford Transit site that talk about it and shows a lot of features for the 2020 Transit.

Ordering the BLIS w/Cross Traffic Alert most of the needed features for viewing the sides of the Transit. The Side Sensing System is used more for the Enhanced Park Assist that is a parallel parking feature available for the 2020 Tranait.
