Ford Pro CEO Ted Cannis announced on Twitter that the Ford Transit is expanding its lineup for the 2023 model year. Next month, Ford Pro will introduce the all-new 2023 Transit Trail pickup, equipped with its new capability that makes it ideal for the adventure

As the popularity of the vanlife continues to grow, the real work of outfitting a cargo van for home and adventure is left to hobbyists and professional outfitters. The automakers haven’t really provided a specific foundation for these kinds of tasks, but Ford is determined to change that in November.

Ford Pro will improve the Transit Trail

Ford announced this week that its Ford Pro division will launch the 2023 Ford Transit Trail in November. Although details are still scarce, Ford promised in its press release that the Transit Trail will feature “interior and exterior enhancements that will provide DIYers and RV dealers with a turnkey tarp straight from the factory.” So Ford won’t be the one to help you live your best van life, but it will make your journey a lot easier.

Advances from the Ford Transit Trail

In addition to the announcement, Ford has released two Transit Trail teasers. The first focuses on the grille, which features three amber running lights, an indicator to other cars that something quite large is approaching down the road. The second teaser gives us a glimpse of the silhouette, with a large window in the sliding side door and plenty of exterior lighting.

The vans have had a difficult stage

While the full-size van segment will continue to flourish, thanks in part to niche variants like this one, other segments aren’t doing as well in America. The compact van segment has virtually disappeared from the United States. Nissan eliminated its commercial offering in 2020, and this year alone we have seen the cancellation of the Ford Transit Connect, Mercedes-Benz Metris and Ram ProMaster City in the United States, effectively killing the compact van segment in the United States. completely.
