The numbers must include cutaways? E series Ford isn't currently produced in anything but a cutaway, but still selling well.

There is probably alot of backlog on the Transit because of all the delays. They will undoubtedly have elevated production until all that is cleared. The annual numbers will be interesting to see where it falls out.

Probably unfair to segregate Savana and Express, they are essentially the same product.

Also, I wonder what RAM Cargo Van is. Is that the old body, or is that a box truck?

Ford Transit seems to have the fleet market sewn up. I think much of their delay hitting the market was to be ready for that. Promaster was in no way ready to compete for that with its one factory down in Mexico.

Express and Savana are the last of the traditional small vans. The numbers up there look good enough for them to keep it going for awhile longer.

You can discount the lesser numbers of the Express/Savannah, as they have to share the same line with the new Colorado/Canyon pickups. GM is running that plant full out 7 days a week and can't keep up with either the vans or the pickups. The vans have been given secondary production priority, so there's a shortage of them big time. This was part of the reason they discontinued the 1500 version of the van for 2015 to free up production numbers.
Ford has been running the Kansas City Transit plant 2 shifts, 50 hours per week, with a couple Saturdays per month thrown in to keep up and build inventory.
According to guys over on the Transit forum, the ordering time to receipt has lessened considerably since springtime. The biggest holdups are still the medium and high roofs because of their non-standard shipping requirements.
Currently no need for Ford to finally release the RV package version of the Transit unfortunately...

What is the "RV Version" of the Transit?

Orders for the Promaster are still taking a long time. Wait is 4 months.
