Ford Transit Lineup Wins 2023 Best Fleet Value Awards

The Blue Oval has fared quite well in the 2023 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America Awards thus far, as the Ford Maverick XL Hybrid took home top honors in the small pickup category, the Ford Transit Connect topped the small commercial passenger van and small commercial cargo van segments, and the Ford Super Duty won the full-size 3/4 ton and one-ton segments. Now, we can add the Ford Transit to that list as well, as the popular van was once again recognized for being an excellent value for fleet owners, too.

This time around, the Ford Transit took home top honors in three different categories – the full-size one-ton van, full-size half-ton cargo van, and full-size 3/4 ton cargo van segments. In each case, the Transit beat out all of its competitors, winning 28 different measured lifecycle cost scenarios while also presenting the lowest depreciation and maintenance costs in its class.

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.”
