Safe, sound and connected
The Crafter Cab Chassis is a workhorse, designed to put in long shifts. That’s why it boasts one of the most comprehensive suites of safety and driver assistance systems in its class, some of which are firsts for the sector. Add to that a huge array of connectivity options, and you’ve got everything you need to keep your business moving.
  • Front Assist with City Emergency Braking1
    Front Assist with City Emergency Braking1
    Stay on the front foot.

    Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects a possible collision with the vehicle in front. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it applies the braking giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Braking will prepare the braking if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.

  • Driver Fatigue Detection1
    Driver Fatigue Detection1
    A welcome wake up call.

    Exclusive to the Crafter range, this potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals, and if fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and recommends the driver take a break on the Multi-Function display.

  • Multi-Collision Brake
    Multi-Collision Brake
    Lessen the chance of follow-on collision.

    Another feature exclusive to the Crafter, this state-of-the-art system uses two independent sensors to detect a collision, and applies the braking to slow down the vehicle, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and braking lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

  • Hill Hold Assist
    Hill Hold Assist
    It’s all uphill from here, in a good way.

    This intelligent feature allows you to make a hill start without the vehicle rolling back. If you’re on an incline greater than 5 per cent, the system will hold your car stationary for 1.5 seconds after the foot braking is released by temporarily locking the braking pressure.

  • Airbags1
    The best possible protection.

    The Crafter Cab Chassis now features front side and curtain airbags for the driver and front passenger, giving you the optimal protection in the event of head-on or side impacts.

  • Electronic Differential Lock1
    Electronic Differential Lock1
    Never lose control around corners.

    When cornering, this valuable safety system responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner, which improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
    Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
    Cruise on through.

    The optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit. Forms part of the optional Driver Assistance Package ‘Chassis’.

  • Lane Assist
    Lane Assist
    Stay on track.

    Using a camera to monitor the markings on the road ahead, the optional Lane Assist helps keep you safe by working to prevent you leaving your lane unintentionally. If you start to leave your lane without indicating the system takes corrective steering action. If you still don’t respond a message will appear in the Multi-Function Display in conjunction with a warning tone. Forms part of the optional Driver Assistance Package ‘Chassis’.

Drive systems to help you on your way
For the first time ever in Australia, you can get the Crafter with the optional 8-speed full automatic gearbox, which can be combined with the Front Wheel Drive. This will help you make light work of all traffic conditions.

This is possible thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces. So, you can conveniently control compatible apps via the touchscreen display while also having the ability to pair two phones at the same time.

  • Voice Control
    Voice Control
    Infotainment on command.

    Various telephone, radio and media functions can be operated by using simple voice commands which means you don’t have to take your hands off the steering wheel.

  • Infotainment
    Entertainment at your fingertips.
