The New 2023 Ford Transit Trail—A Dream Van For Adventure Seekers

With a wealth of experience in the motorhome industry and bearing in mind the insights from the van-life community, Ford has finally struck gold with the all-new 2023 Ford Transit Trail. The upfit-ready van offers matchless capabilities and comprises category-exclusive features that allow adventure seekers to start their next excursion without a second thought. So, without further ado, let’s delve deeper into the details of this outdoor enthusiast’s dream vehicle.

Engine & Transmission

The new 2023 Ford Transit Trail van is propelled by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that generates a massive 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. For a seamless driving experience and rapid power delivery, the super-strong engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. 

Drivetrain & Drive Modes

Designed for people who love to live the van life, the capable off-highway vehicle comes with intelligent all-wheel drive and can traverse the most rugged terrains thanks to five drive modes, including Mud/Ruts, Slippery, Tow/Haul, Normal, and Eco. 


The 2023 Ford Transit Trail is offered in three distinct configurations, including medium- and high-roof variants as well as a high-roof extended-length model. With various options available, van-life enthusiasts and motorhome fans can select a trim that best suits their needs. Each trim model offers a ton of customization options. And with simple modifications and access to Ford Pro’s network of upfitters and interior installers, drivers can design their van to fit their adventure needs comfortably.

Towing Capacity

The all-new Transit Trail is masterfully engineered to get the job done. The top-tier van allows thrill seekers to take their adventure toys anywhere they want, thanks to a heavy-duty trailer package that offers an incredible 6,500 pounds of towing capacity. With such tremendous hauling power, you can easily tow your boat, four-wheeler, or snowmobile on your next outdoor trip. 


The Transit Trail boasts an exquisite and practical exterior design. The front bumper is crafted in a unique skid plate style, and the prominent black grille with a Ford emblem and integrated marker lamps looks pretty sleek and aggressive. The 3.5-inch increased ride height results in better ground clearance, and a 2.75-inch wider track improves stability. The stylish 16- inch black alloy wheels complement the 30.5-inch Goodyear Wrangler Workhorse all-terrain tires, which are durable and can endure the most demanding off-road conditions. Other exterior features include wheel arch cladding, splash guards, front wheel arch liners, slider-style driver- and passenger-side steps, and black HID headlamps. 

Infotainment & Tech Features

Packed with trailblazing technology and all the latest features, the 2023 Ford Transit Trail van is a feat of modern engineering. It has all the amenities you can expect from an upfit-ready adventure van and offers a thrilling and delightful outdoor experience that is truly unrivaled. The Transit Trail’s class-leading tech features include: 

  • Intelligent Access with push-button start
  • Reverse and Side Sensing systems
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic alert to an optional 360-degree camera with Split View and Front Washer

Experience an impressive 12-inch touchscreen with SYNC®4 and Ford power-up software updates. Other interior features include a high-resolution digital camera, SiriusXM® with 360L, and HD Radio. Stay connected with FordPass Connect- Even when you’re 50 feet away from your new 2023 Transit Trail, FordPass Connect with Wi-Fi HotSpot lets you connect with the premium reach and wireless capability of Wi-Fi.

Interior & Cargo Space

The 2023 Ford Transit Trail has a very versatile, purposeful, and comfortable interior. The privacy glass isolates you from the outside world and creates a serene atmosphere reminiscent of your home. The illuminated sun visors help you get ready on the go, and the passenger swivel seats are perfect for longer journeys and adventure trips. The overhead shelf provides ample space to store your stuff, and the optional roof vent fan adds a touch of coziness. Furthermore, drillable areas are explicitly positioned for beds, shelves, and cabinets, giving DIYers and upfitters a wide range of customization options. 

The Transit Trail offers 487 cubic feet of cargo space in the high-roof extended-length configuration. The cargo compartment floor extends more than 14 feet in the extended-length model, and both high-roof versions provide full standing space for individuals up to 6 feet 5 inches tall. The Transit Trail Van does not come standard with a living or sleeping space. Still, Transit Connect owners will have access to Ford Pro’s network of upfitters and interior installers to customize it into the ultimate #vanlife vehicle.
