The updated Ford Transit van received an off-road version

The European version of the Ford Transit van received the off-road version of the Trail with a large false radiator grille with a huge Ford inscription. Similar improvements will also decorate the passenger Tourneo.

Ford introduced a series of new Transit and Transit Custom minibuses that can move on rough roads – these versions will be designated Trail. Available for order now, new versions of the popular model will reach their customers later this summer. New items will receive more durable body cladding and mechanical upgrades that will help them cope with impassability.

Beginners can be recognized by the oversized Ford inscription on the matte black false radiator grille, as well as the black trim around the front and rear bumpers and side panels.

The set of model-specific 16-inch alloy wheels and Trail logos on the front doors also highlight the off-road version of the model, while the smaller of the two cars – Transit Custom – can also be equipped with an additional roof rack.

Inside, there is leather upholstery, while air conditioning, a heated windshield, electric folding mirrors and automatic lighting are standard.

Both new items can be equipped with a new limited slip differential and a redesigned traction control system that is designed to increase traction on slippery surfaces. Transit, however, will also be available with Ford’s “intelligent” all-wheel drive system. Based on the Transit rear-wheel drive, the system sends all its power to the rear wheels under normal conditions, but can send up to 50 percent to the front wheels if necessary.

Customers of both cars can choose a van or double cab body type depending on their needs, as well as a wide selection of 2.0-liter diesel engines – 128, 168 and 182 horsepower options are available. Transit Custom Trail models provide additional fuel efficiency through the use of soft hybrid technology. 48-volt systems store energy normally lost during braking and then use it to help the engine when it is under load.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the network showed a new motorhome based on Ford Transit. The Leisure Travel Vans Wonder Rear Lounge is the new Ford Transit home. It has a 310-horsepower 3.5-liter biturbo engine and four-wheel drive.
