More specifically, Ford Transit sales increased 30 percent, selling 32,031 units last quarter and snapping up 87 percent segment share. It vastly outperformed its smaller counterpart, the Ford Transit Connect, which only sold 4,924 units, down 27 percent year-over-year, securing the remaining 13 percent segment share.

The Ford Authority Take

The increase in Ford van sales during Q2 2023 is entirely to the credit of the full-size Transit van. It once again dominated its competitive segment, vastly outselling its rivals like the Ram ProMaster, Chevy Express and GMC Savana. The Blue Oval has bolstered its operations at the Kansas City Assembly plant by adding a third shift to keep the Transit rolling off the assembly line at an ample pace to keep up with demand. Additionally, the the Transit Trail variant was added to the the lineup for the 2023 model year, and will likely continue to drive demand for the van.

Meanwhile, it’s not a surprise to see such a decline in sales of the smaller Transit Connect, as the model will be fully discontinued after the 2023 model year. Its sales reflect depleting inventory, although it’s not the only compact van to find itself in such a situation, as the Nissan NV200 has completely bowed out already, while the Ram ProMaster City is also on its way out. Soon, there will be no competitors left in the compact van segment.

In turn, that means that the full-size Transit will be the last Blue Oval van standing in the near future, and will be solely responsible for Ford van sales numbers once supply of the Transit Connect runs out.

    It’s outselling GMC and CHEVY full size vans because of an intentional slowdown by both these companies. People want them but they are NOT making them.
