Ford has announced the Transit Trail – their answer to offroad vanlife. This 2023 model gives you a factory-built offroad version of the market segment-leading Ford Transit van. The only drawback is the price. The base model starts at just under $66,000, Mercedes Sprinter territory.
I think it’s great that Ford decided to go all in on an offroad van to compete with Mercedes. I hope other manufacturers do the same. There is a huge market for vans like this, and increased competition between manufacturers will mean better products and prices for van buyers in the future.
