Troller Veículos Especiais S/A (Troller) is a Brazilian off-road vehicles manufacturer. Founded in 1995 in Horizonte, Ceará, it became a subsidiary of Ford in 2007. Troller's flagship vehicle is the Troller T4 SUV, which had featured successfully in several rally races around the world, including the Dakar Rally.
The Troller company started in 1995, by Rogério Farias. In April 1996, the first prototype was built. In 1997, Troller was bought by the entrepreneur Mário Araripe, who formed a partnership with Rogério Farias, and the first gasoline-powered T4s were built. The mass-production of the vehicles started in 1999, when a factory was built.
In 2014, the Troller T4 received a redesign.
