Ford Transit & Transit Connect Win “Best Fleet in America Award”
Call them European, silly, or even ugly, but Ford’s cargo vans are selling like hot cakes, and accord to Vincentric, they represent the “Best Fleet Value in America.”
More and more companies dump oversized tractor trailers that require expensive and extensive maintenance, specially-qualified drivers, and other special treatment in exchange for low-maintenance, easy to operate and own Ford cargo vans. Heck, even moving giant, U-Haul dumped various of their E-Series based moving trucks and Silverado daily rental pickup trucks for Ford Transit cargo vans.
Ford Transit and Transit Connect vans won the award for best value for fleets in the following categories for the second consecutive year:
- Full-size half-ton passenger van: Ford Transit 150 XL low-roof wagon
- Full-size three-quarter-ton cargo van: Ford Transit 250 low-roof van
- Full-size one-ton cargo van: Ford Transit 350 low-roof van
- Small commercial passenger van: Ford Transit Connect XLT short-wheelbase van
Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America awards are based on fleet lifecycle costs in eight key areas – depreciation, fuel, insurance, financing, repairs, fees and taxes, opportunity costs and maintenance. Winning vehicles have the lowest lifecycle costs across 20 different ownership and mileage scenarios – ranging from 24 months of ownership/10,000 miles annually to 60 months of ownership/30,000 miles annually.
Great job, Ford Transit!
