Ford Transit Production Increased In January 2024

Though it hasn’t received any major updates in some time now – and doesn’t seem likely to get any in the near future – the Ford Transit remains a highly popular entity in the world of commercial vehicles as a flexible, utilitarian, and economical mode of transportation. However, over the last two months of 2023, Ford Transit production actually decreased at the Kansas City Assembly plant following a bit of an up and down calendar year. Regardless, Ford Transit production rebounded somewhat to start off the new year, according to FoMoCo’s latest sales report.

In November, a grand total of 14,466 Ford Transit models emerged from the Kansas City Assembly plant, which represented a month-over-month decrease of 2,921 units or 16.7 percent compared to October. Things got even worse in December, as Transit production declined by 822 units or 5.6 percent to finish out the month at 13,644 units. In January, however, Ford built a total of 15,646 Transit models, which is a month-over-month increase of around 14.7 percent, or 2,002 units.

The Ford Transit has long held the top spot among all full-size vans in the U.S., recently closing out the fourth quarter of 2023 with a total of 28,814 units sold – a slight decrease quarter-over-quarter, but good enough for a 30 percent year-over-year increase as the Transit grew its market share from 36 percent to 38 percent at the same time.

Ford previously admitted that it underestimated demand for the Transit, which continues to outsell its competition by a large margin, and as such, it has been trying to catch up with that elevated demand ever since. In fact, the Transit is one of a select few, in-demand models that The Blue Oval has worked to ramp up production of lately, along with its EV counterpart, the E-Transit. To do so, the automaker invested $95 million in its Kansas City Assembly plant and added a third shift there last April.

    Glad they are still producing the large Ford Transit but that does not explain their stupidity in stopping production of the Ford Transit Connect. We have both and I had intended to get a new Connect. Ours is almost 7 years old and has been wonderful.
