The Ford Transit, up 53% in March 2016, wasn’t just the best-selling commercial or cargo van in America in March – it was the best-selling van overall. No minivan topped 13,600 sales.
The Transit and its two siblings, the E-Series and Transit Connect, controlled 54% of America’s commercial van market in the first-quarter of 2016, down from 55% in 2015’s first-quarter. The Transit Connect’s 11% drop in a category which grew 19% was no help.
