Ford Transit

Ford Transit remains on top of the sales chart among the full-size commercial vans for the month of May 2016. It is also showing the best improved sales over the May of last year. However, it’s not the best improved in the Year-To-Date sales comparison. That title goes to the Ram ProMaster van lineup. Ram’s large van is showing great strides in month-over-month and YTD sales.

Each of the six entries in the segment firmly hold their respective places. If the current trend continues for the next several months, the Ram ProMaster may overtake the Ford E-Series chassis/cutaways for third spot. Time will tell.

The GMC Savana van again hopped over the Nissan NV van lineup. The NV vans are still showing growth, but they are in the last place for sales numbers.

The Ford E-Series continues sales of chassis and cutaway vans. It will do so for the reminder of the decade. While the E-Series sales are still decreasing, it’s still good for third place.
