The Ford Authority Take

Ford Transit sales continue to reflect its position as a highly desirable and popular seller, absolutely dominating its competitive segment yet again during Q3 2023. It’s the third consecutive quarter of improved sales this year, indicating that FoMoCo is able to continue navigating supply chain constraints and other issues negatively affecting its production.

In fact, the automaker is currently working to ramp up production of the Transit at the Kansas City Assembly plant by adding a third shift, so we expect sales to continue trending upward as supply matches demand.

Ford Transit sales are further driven by the new Transit Trail variant that joined the lineup for the 2023 model year, which is an upfit-ready off-road-oriented van that is geared toward the van and outdoor life enthusiast. Order banks for this model sealed up on August 14th, 2023.

    Another segment leading cash cow for Ford along with F Series that WallStreet pretends to ignore as they glorify anything EV (and of course you can get an EV Transit if you like)

    You make the statement of “Ford Transit sales are further driven by the new Transit Trail variant that joined the lineup for the 2023 model year, which is an upfit-ready off-road-oriented van that is geared toward the van and outdoor life enthusiast. Order banks for this model sealed up on August 14th, 2023.” But why did you cancel the remaining Trail builds for 2023?? The Crew Vans were nice for converting to multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) but you also canceled that line last year (2022). It forces many of us who want the Transit as a MPV to buy a “Cargo van” and upfit it to become a MPV at a much increased consumer cost in the upfitting and to pay much more for insurance after the conversion. Sounds like Ford is opening the door to Chevrolet, Dodge and Mercedes to gain market share in this area. to

    These Transit vans are not exactly built with quality in mind. I drove a 2017 medium sized cargo version for two years. Although it drove nicely, these vans rust easily, the gas cover next to the driver door is way too fragile and can break easily and the transmission isn’t exactly reliable. The E-Series was a far superior product, in my opinion. It’s too bad they’re fleet only these days.
