Large Families Attracted to Ford Transit Over Traditional Minivan

It’s probably no surprise that large families need more room when the travel than smaller families, and typically, the minivan is the go-to option for those large families.  But what if there was another option?  Looks like the growing number of families are turning away from the traditional minivan and moving on to the Ford Transit passenger wagon.

Available as a cargo van, passenger wagon, cutaway, or chassis cab, the Ford Transit does seem to be the best option for large families.  With seating for up to 15 passengers, is there really a better way to travel in style with your large family than in a Ford Transit?  With a 30% year-over-year increase in sales for the Ford Transit, it’s clear that more and more families are turning to the more non-traditional travel approach.

Ford Transit Named in Vincentric 2015 Best Fleet Value in America Awards

Ford cleaned house in the Vincentric 2015 Best Fleet Value in America awards, taking home 11 awards for their fleet vehicles – more than any other automaker. The all-new Ford Transit led the way, thanks to the commercial van’s incredible value, low cost of ownership, and practical features.

In determining the 2015 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America awards, Vincentric conducted a cost of ownership analysis based on the typical configuration of a commercial fleet vehicle. Using eight different cost factors, including depreciation, financing, fuel, fees & taxes, insurance, opportunity cost, maintenance, and repairs, Vincentric determined the average cost of ownership for each vehicle considered.

According to a news release, “Each vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus DC using 20 different lifecycle cost scenarios. Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.”

The Transit was determined to be the best value for fleets in five of the six Vincentric categories for full-size vans, including Full-Size ½-Ton Cargo Van, Full-Size ½-Ton Passenger Van, Full-Size ¾-Ton Cargo Van, Full-Size 1-Ton Cargo Van, and Full-Size 1-Ton Passenger Van.
