Annually the association of Fleet Operators has an annual get together at which the members are questioned on the cars and vans that they operate.
This year, for the first time ever, one manufacturer dominated the vote and won every class. Without doubt, Ford now supply the best business vans according to the membership vote.
Manufacturers value the outcome of this vote, as the ACFO represent the largest van fleets and car fleets in Britain.
Ford re-invented themselves as a producer of commercial vehicles, concentrating on quality of build, safety and above all efficiency with a view to reducing running costs. They were as we know really successful in all three and now have a fantastic range of commercials.
The Small Van of the Year class was awarded to the outgoing Ford Transit Connect, a van that is soon to be replaced by a more efficient replacement.
The Large Van of the Year was awarded to the Ford Transit, a van that has not long since been facelifted and had new engines and transmissions added. Additionally, it has had a new sibling added in the form of the Ford Transit custom, which is even more efficient and amazingly car like to drive.
At the end of the year, the prize winning Transit is itself being replaced with the all new Transit, at Vanlease UK, we are looking forward to minibus and tipper versions of that one.
