Commercial Van Sales In America - February 2016 YTD

ProMaster and ProMaster City
The fourth-highest monthly total in the Ford Transit's U.S. sales history was easily enough to grab top spot among full-size commercial vans and the commercial van category overall in February 2016.


U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - February 2016 YTD


Year-over-year, Transit sales jumped 70%, a gain of nearly 5000 units. Ford's smaller van, the Transit Connect, led the small commercial van category thanks to a 9% uptick to 3038 units, 1275 more sales than the next-best Ram ProMaster City managed.

Ram commercial van sales certainly improved, however. Even including the discontinued Ram Cargo Van, Ram's U.S. cargo van sales total jumped 76% to 4747 units, or 12% market share.

The segment as a whole posted a notable increase in February. Year-over-year, sales shot up 31% as the full-size sector grew faster than the small van sector, helped no doubt by the tweener-sized Mercedes-Benz Metris's inclusion in the full-size sector's results as Mercedes-Benz continues to roll their sales together. (Mercedes-Benz also began reporting sales of the E-Class and CLS-Class together in February, a real disappointment for GCBC's sales-obsessed readership.)

Yet while improvements were the norm almost across the board, Ford's reign continues. 52% of the sales generated by the 13 nameplates listed below were produced by three Fords.
