Each year, Vincentric uses their expertise in data collection and analysis, as well as their deep knowledge of the auto industry, to determine the models with the Best Fleet Value in America. These awards are designed to recognize models that will give owners the lowest total cost of ownership, ensuring a great value for fleet customers and drivers. This year, a total of five Ford models topped their categories – all of them marking multiple years of earning the honor.

The Ford Super Duty XL won its category for the second time, while the 2017 Ford F-150 continued its string of awards by topping the Full-Size, Half-Ton Pickup category for the fifth year. For those employing vans for their fleet, the 2017 Ford Transit Connect XLT marked its fifth year on top of the Small Commercial Passenger Van segment, and the Ford Transit 150 XL earned its third win.

But for many drivers, whether buying for a fleet or not, it’s all about the sedans that provide space, efficiency, adaptability, and comfort. And there is no better choice than the 2017 Ford Taurus: for the seventh year, the Ford Taurus was named the best Large Sedan by Vincentric, demonstrating its value no matter the model year.

We know that most of our local drivers aren’t buying for a fleet, but the Vincentric awards are based on elements like depreciation, financing, repair costs, and more – factors in the long-term costs of any car owner. So take your lead from the companies that depend on these cars, and pay a visit to your local Ford dealer.
