Commercial Van Sales In America – July 2017


The Ford Transit suffered badly in July, as a mass recall affecting over 400,000 vans between 2015 and 2017 Model Year, in medium, long and extended wheelbase form, as well as cab chassis models.

The recall is to address safety concerns over the driveshaft, which it’s thought could crack in vans with higher mileages. Sales plummeted, with the Transits’s YTD figures also taking a hit.

Sales of Full-Size Commercial vans fell behind year-on-year by 3.8%, with the majority of the drop attributable to the steep decline in Transit sales.
