Discover the New Ford Trail Models

Added: 21 September 2020

The new Ford Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail have been designed to be able to take drivers to challenging terrain away from normal roads. They deliver distinctive design, immense capability and Transit toughness, and they’re available to order now at Day's Transit Centre in Swansea!

They have been specifically designed to operate in tougher working environments, with the enhanced traction of a new mechanical limited-slip differential (mLSD) on front-wheel drive and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive on Transit models only.

Exclusive exterior and interior upgrades provide comfort and capability in challenging conditions without compromising practicality.

The Trail model features oversized “Ford” lettering in the matte black grille with additional black cladding, 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.

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 challenging surfaces.

Transit Trail is also available with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive for optimised traction off-road. The technology enhances the base rear-wheel drive configuration by sending up to 50 per cent of engine torque to the front axle based on available grip in response to changing road surfaces and driver inputs.

Transit Trail’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive technology is also supported by additional ‘Slippery’ and ‘Mud/Rut’ selectable drive modes, designed to improve performance and driver confidence across a variety of driving scenarios. These are easily selected using the Drive Mode controller on the dashboard. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive also features AWD Lock mode to split torque 50:50 between front and rear axles on extreme low-grip surfaces. The system does not compromise the load volume or dimensions of the Transit Trail compared with rear-wheel drive equivalents.

Trail models also benefit from an enhanced interior specification, with full leather seating as standard bringing additional luxury, durability and wipe-clean flexibility to the cabin. Air conditioning, power-foldable door mirrors and auto lighting are also standard, as is Ford’s Quickclear heated windscreen, which allows an easy departure in freezing conditions.

All Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail models are available in panel van and double-cab-in-van body styles and are powered by Ford’s advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine with a choice of 130PS, 170PS and 185PS 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 130PS, 170PS and 185PS 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.

The new Trail models also benefit from the significant enhancements introduced to the Transit, Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom ranges during 2019, with more fuel efficient 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel and EcoBlue Hybrid 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain options.
