It also does some automatic lane centering and also reads speed limit signs to keep you under the posted limit (very useful for going through random small towns where the speed limit suddenly drops from 65 to 35 so that they can generate some revenue)
What leads you to believe the Transit will have "Lane Centering"? Only Lane Keeping Assist is mentioned in the Order Guide. I'm surprised they wouldn't mention Lane Centering if it was going to be available ... particularly since they do mention Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Assist.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if it has it, but won't be counting on it. Nor do they mention Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, which is what it is called on the other vehicles. I'm more hopeful that that'll be there though.

I assumed so based upon Ford calling it IACC, and what the mention in the rest of their marketing: https://www.ford.com/technology/dri...-control/#intelligent_adaptive_cruise_control

"IACC includes the features of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition, which can automatically adjust the set speed of your vehicle to the posted speed limit"

I hope you are right, however when I researched the features of our 2020 van, what the Transit got for ACC was a subset of what other Ford models with the same feature name were getting. I expect it’ll stay a year or two behind the others for iACC, hence hope that it gets Stop and Go but pessimism that it’ll have Lane Centering.

A couple months ago I had a long video call with a Transit Specialist directly from ford (As part of some kind of "Discover Transit" thing they were doing where you could have a video call with an expert directly from Ford) and she said that while it wasn't fully self-steering like you find on Teslas or other cars, it would provide a little bit of steering torque to stop you from drifting. But it wouldn't fully steer the vehicle around highway bends. Similarly, with the Blind Spot Monitoring, it wouldn't fully stop you from changing lanes if it detects something in the blind spot, but it will make the wheel harder to turn.

At least, that's what the lady said.

My understanding is that It's the extended range fuel tank with the addition of an auxiliary fuel port for the installation of any additional accessories like a Webasto or Esbar heater without the need for dropping the tank. So essentially, an extra $100 on top of the $285 extended range fuel tank for that convenience. I'm getting it on my order.
