Ford Debuts Its Ruggedized Overland-Ready Transit Trail Van For 2020

Ford has found solace in the ready-for-anything outdoor market, as of late, and with their future models taking on more and more characteristics of the breakaway Raptor range, we’ve been anticipating the manufacturer’s next big reveal. To the surprise of many, the most interesting, and recent, news to come out of the American brand has been relegated to none other than its decidedly-tame Transit van.

To break free of the van’s laid-back reputation, the company has introduced the Transit Trail and Active — two new models that have been touted as the rugged, rough-road-capable iterations of its urban commuter. Off-grid living is more popular than ever, and Ford hopes to capitalize on that with its Transit Trail line — introducing enhanced traction control, alternative drivetrain options, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (and front-wheel-drive) models, and specialized Electronic Stability Control, which works in tandem with the van’s torque-monitoring to deliver adequate power in low-grip conditions. There’s also an AWD Lock mode, which has been implemented to split torque between the front and rear axles when faced with troublesome surfaces. Each iteration will be powered by Ford’s 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine, with 130 PS, 170 PS, and 185 PS options available upon purchase. Head to the brand’s website to learn more.
