The new Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail models have been designed specifically to operate in tougher working environments, with the enhanced traction of a new mechanical limited-slip differential (mLSD) on front-wheel drive Transit and Transit Custom variants, and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive on Transit.
Exclusive exterior and interior upgrades further ensure the Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail are equipped to deliver comfort and capability in challenging conditions without compromising practicality.
New Active variants of the Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom support the multi-activity lifestyles of private and business customers with additional body cladding and the option of an mLSD for enhanced traction on loose, slippery or soft surfaces. An SUV-inspired exterior adds visual appeal as well as boosting practicality off the beaten track.
The new Ford Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail deliver rugged new looks and enhanced capability to support owners and operators whose work takes them to challenging terrain away from normal roads.
Trail variants feature additional black cladding around the front and rear lower bumpers and side panels. Oversized “Ford” lettering in the matte black grille delivers a bold and purposeful presence that embodies the vehicles’ go-anywhere spirit, complemented by unique 16-inch alloy wheels and “Trail” logos on the front doors. Transit Custom can also be specified with roof rails and running boards for added versatility.
A choice of drivetrains offers enhanced traction for difficult conditions. Front-wheel-drive Transit and Transit Custom Trail models are fitted with an mLSD as standard, and Transit Trail is available with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive for confident progress in more challenging terrain and weather conditions.
Developed in partnership with driveline technology specialists Quaife, the mLSD automatically transfers engine torque in low grip conditions to the wheel with the most traction, allowing Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail to more comfortably tackle unpaved roads, gravel tracks and rugged or challenging surfaces. The vehicle’s Electronic Stability Control system has also been recalibrated to harmonise with the mLSD.
Transit Custom Trail is available in a range of body styles with GVM from 3,000 kg to 3,400 kg, including panel van, double-cab-in-van and kombi in a choice of two wheelbases.
Transit Trail offers multiple body styles and wheelbases in the 3,500 kg category, with panel van, double-cab-in-van, kombi, single chassis cab and double chassis cab variants.
All Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail models are powered by Ford’s advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine with a choice of 130 PS, 170 PS and 185 PS power outputs.
In addition, Transit Custom Trail models offer the efficiency benefits of electrified powertrains with Ford’s unique-in-segment 2.0-litre EcoBlue Hybrid powertrains in 130 PS, 170 PS and 185 PS form. The 48-volt mild hybrid technology recovers energy during deceleration, stores it in a 48-volt battery pack, and uses the energy to increase fuel efficiency.
