The Ford Transit is easily one of the most #vanlife-ready platforms the industry has to offer. Aftermarket nuts aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed either, as even the vehicle’s manufacturer is now offering it in a package centered around the lifestyle straight out of the factory.
Say hello to the Ford Transit Trail—the perfect ride for van-lifers who simply can’t be bothered to build their own home-away-from-home from scratch.
You can get the vehicle in either a mid- or high-roof configuration, with the latter offering a massive cabin size of 487 cubic feet. Units also come with drillable areas for the installation of cabinets, shelves, a bed, and other #vanlife provisions. An Upfitter Package, meanwhile, equips the Transit Trail with upgrades like a light bar, auxiliary fuse panel, and modified wiring.

All Ford Transit Trail units come equipped with a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 capable of up to 310hp and 542Nm of torque mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This variant also runs on all four wheels, rides 89mm higher off the ground, and has a track wider by 70mm. Exterior upgrades include a more rugged grille, a new bumper design, splash guards, wheel arch cladding, and sidesteps.
Frankly, this looks promising. None of this, though, can’t be achieved by going the aftermarket route. It’s all really a matter of whether you have the time to build your own unit or not. Would you buy something like this straight out of the factory if given the option?
