June Transit Sales

"With vehicles made in the Kansas City-area generally posting disappointing sales in June, the highlight of the month was Ford officially registering its first 490 Transit van sales."

Yeah, the Sprinter gang is wetting them selves over this, they think cause they only sold 490 with none visible on the lots that it will not out sell the Sprinter.

490 transit vans doesn't sounds terrible. If the vans aren't actually at a lot of dealerships then I'm sure that number will only get better moving forward.

If I recall, econoline has been selling 5,000-10,000 per month for the last 10 years... I'd imagine the majority of those will follow over to the Transit (minus people who go to Chevy for the old style van, minus people still buying the E450 cutaways, then add in stolen sprinter sales)

There are going to be a LOT of these things. I'm pretty impressed they've sold 500! Considering most people still haven't laid eyes on a single van, let alone one customized to their specs, that's pretty good. Wait til every Ford dealership has 5-10 of them on the lot at any time, all different heights and motors to choose from, incentives, and the ability to shuffle vans from dealership to dealership if they don't have what you want and someone another dealer in the same network does.

My friend manages a fleet here (rangers and transit connects) and they have a full size transit on order, and more coming when the need arises.
