Next-generation Ford Transit transporter van mule spied with a new front fascia is due in late 2012, early 2013.

Yes, this is the story you've all been waiting for - the first spy photos of the next-generation Ford Transit.

This 2012/2013 Ford Transit mule was spotted by our intrepid spy photographers and we can see Ford is trying to hide a new front fascia for the transporter van. If you look closely, you can see a new grill and other minor modifications.

Of course, Ford doesn't bother to camouflage the large box design of the Transit van, which we expect to remain more or less the same.

Hey, European painters and plumbers, ever tried a Ford F-150?
