Since it is not technically classified as a passenger vehicle, the Transit Crew Van gets no official safety rating from the NHTSA or IIHS. That being said, it has been crash-tested for frontal crashes and received a rating of three out of five from the NHTSA.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Ford Co-Pilot360 is included on every Transit Crew Van, so you always get at least forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, crosswind assist, lane-keep assist, and a rearview camera. Available upgrades include rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, a surround-view camera, a rearview-mirror camera, and rear cross-traffic alert. In the unfortunate event of an accident, there are six airbags - a front and side airbag each for the driver and passenger and curtain airbags that cover both rows.

You won't find any definitive reliability review of the Ford Transit Crew Van. The fact that the Passenger and Cargo variants are still suffering recalls, seven in 2022 in the case of the former, doesn't bode well, though. The warranty plan is also very average for the segment. The bumper-to-bumper warranty is valid for three years/36,00 miles, and the powertrain and roadside assistance plans cover five years/60,000 miles.
While larger, heavier vehicles are generally safer, the Transit Crew Van is designed to be as light as it can be to optimize its cargo capacity. This means it lacks the sturdiness of a truck and has a subsequently poor safety rating.
There are six airbags in the Crew Van - front and side airbags for both the driver and passenger, and curtain airbags that cover both rows of passengers.
