Default Is everybody jumping into the van business?

Seems like everyone is developing a Sprinter type van.

What do you all think of this one?

There is a plumbing supply business and a Fed Ex distribution center near my home with hundreds of commercial vans sitting in their parking lots. They are now more than 50% Sprinter vans. Chevy is going to wish they weren't late to the party when there won't be a single GM vehicle in the lot soon.

They have a Eurovan - it's a Vauxhall model. So far they've been mum on bringing it over.

Most of the car companies-including GM-have Sprinter type vans sold in Europe and asia. It'sonly in North America that they were slow to catch on.Also the european type vans we are getting are not the exact ones used in USA. remember we are a big counrty/continent. most of europe is smaller streets and shorter distances. plus diesel is the main automotive fuel. in north america it's 90/10 gas diesel. in europe it's 90/10 diesel gas.they are much more easily equipped and knowledgeable about diesel issues.
