Ford Transit Connect Wins Two 2023 Best Fleet Value Awards

Though it’s set to be discontinued following the 2023 model year, the Ford Transit Connect remains a great value for customers looking for a small van. In fact, the Transit Connect won a 2022 Best Fleet Value in America Award from Vincentric, as well as a 2023 Best CPO Value Award from the same organization. Now, that streak continues, as the Ford Transit Connect has earned not just one, but two Vincentric 2023 Best Fleet Value Awards thanks to its low cost of ownership.

The Ford Transit Connect took home top honors in both the small commercial passenger van and small commercial cargo van segment, for mostly the same reasons. As a passenger van, the Ford Transit Connect beat out all of its competition in each of 28 measured lifecycle cost scenarios while also recording the best fuel economy, lowest repair costs, and lowest maintenance costs in its class. As for the cargo van, it repeated those same exact feats to take home first place, too.

To determine the winners of the 2023 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America Awards, the company performed a cost of ownership analysis measuring over 2,000 vehicle configurations based on typical fleet use. It accomplished this by using eight different cost factors – depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs, while each vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus Washington D.C. using 28 different lifecycle scenarios. Winners were then identified by determining which had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios within its segment.

“The Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America Awards provide guidance to fleet professionals by identifying vehicles that will bring proven value to their fleets,” said Vincentric President, David Wurster. “Managing costs is a critical part of fleet management, and our awards give valuable insight into which vehicles offer the lowest lifecycle costs in their segments.”
