The new versions of the Ford Transit and Tourneo received a redesigned hot Ranger Raptor pickup, revised interiors, and technical solutions from the Focus RS.
The most "evil" in appearance, the Trail has all-metal vans - the older and heaviest Transit model, as well as the lighter younger version of the Transit Custom. These cars have a Ranger Raptor-style radiator grille, bumpers and underbody belts made of unpainted black plastic, original 16-inch wheels, Trail logos, as well as roof rails and footpegs that are added to the Transit Custom for an additional fee.
- In the "Trails" salon there is a new leatherette finish, and the equipment includes air conditioning, heated windshield, folding mirrors with an electric drive.
- In the list of options for the largest Transit Trail there is a four-wheel drive with a rear axle coupling with positive locking. By default, the Transit and Transit Custom are front-wheel drive, but in the Trail version they already have a Quaife mLSD limited-slip differential on the front axle, similar to that used on the Focus RS hot hatch.
- Under the hood of cars for Europe - a two-liter EcoBlue turbodiesel with 130, 170 or 185 hp. In addition, each of these motors can be equipped with a "soft" 48-volt hybrid system. Six-speed gearboxes are mechanical and automatic, but the Quaife mLSD self-blocking unit works only with “mechanics”.
Transit Custom vans (low roof, single or double cab, short or long base) and Tourneo Custom minivans (8-seater, short base) also received a more modest "off-road" version of Active. Here, too, there are modified bumpers and unpainted plastic body protection around the perimeter. But the radiator grille is no longer so "evil", the original wheels are 17 inches, not 16, like the Trail. The interior has leatherette trim, new seats and decorative inserts in black and blue.
The units of the Trail and Active versions are the same, but the Quaife mLSD front self-block for the Active versions is an option, which in England, for example, costs 550 pounds (about 48,000 rubles).
- The Trail and Active variants for the Transit and Tourneo series are now available to order across Europe, with deliveries beginning in late summer. Some European prices are already known. For example, in England. Transit Custom Active costs from 30,000 pounds (2.6 million rubles), Tourneo Active - from 37,950 pounds (3.3 million rubles). The Transit Custom Trail version starts at £ 29,950 (2.6 million rubles), and the top-end Transit Trail starts at £ 35,685 (3.1 million rubles). In the future, the "heels" Transit Connect (cargo van) and Tourneo Connect (passenger compact van) will also receive the Active version.
