Ford Transit Trail: Not a Bronco, but Adventure-Capable


Obviously, Bronco Nation loves Broncos. They’re our namesake vehicle, and the six of us on staff all own one of the Gens or are still eagerly waiting to receive an all-new Bronco.

We also love getting outdoors. If you were able to attend Bronco Basecamp in Moab or joined us at Overland Expo West, you may have seen we’ve developed a penchant for adventure trailers that can be pulled behind a Bronco.

Sometimes, though, you need room for even more stuff when heading out on backroad trips. Enter the Ford Transit Trail.

The European version of the Transit Trail has been around for the last couple of years. Now, the North American model has been making an appearance. Spy shots have been surfacing across news sites with more frequency, and Bronco Nation’s David took photos on Wednesday of the adventure package-equipped vehicle.

Viewers will notice the Raptor- and Bronco Raptor-style wide-vehicle lighting in the grille, unique fender flares, and side steps on the exterior. This unit does not have the front bash plate, an element that may be present on production models given that Ford put one on the rugged Explorer Timberline (another interesting vehicle we had parked in our booth at OEW).

Under the hood is a 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 (a $1,775 option), and the window sticker notes AWD, dual batteries, and an auxiliary fuse panel. The pictures indicate that the roof is pre-cut for installing HVAC systems.

It will be interesting to see if the Transit Trail shows up at Oregon’s Overland Expo PNW, where we’re headed on July 8-10. Make plans to join us, because we know without a doubt that there will be plenty of Broncos –– the vehicle we love most!
