The 2015 Ford Transit is really getting to an explosive start with 6,380 units sold in January of 2015. It’s far ahead of declining Chevy Express. The discontinued Ford E-Series is still in third place. Ram ProMaster was able to outsell the Mercedes Sprinter just by a small margin, while the GMC Savana saw a significat decline over last year.
Can GM counter the newer vans from Ford, Ram, Mercedes, and Nissan?

Mid-size Commercial Van – January 2015 Sales
The Ford Transit Connect is still enjoying a comfortable lead among the mid-size cargo vans. Actually, it’s more than a comfortable lead. The Transit Connect outsold the other four competitors combined. However, the Chevy City Express had only its first full month on the market, and the ProMaster City just had a few days of sales in January. Expect the ProMaster City become a strong challenger to the Ford Transit Connect as both other cargo and passenger variants.
Here is another question. Can the Chevy City Express outsell the platform-mate Nissan NV200?
