PEKIN, Illi.– Losing is never much of an option for Ford, which explains why the 2015 Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty win Edmunds.com awards like Best Retained Value.
The 2015 Transit Connect van and the F-350 Super Duty recently won 2015 Best Retained Value Small Commercial Van and 2015 Best Retained Value Heavy Duty Truck, respectively, when Edmunds.com determined the vehicles have the highest projected residual values after 5 years after taking into account their average True Market Value price when sold as new.
The awards are important because residual value holds the most influence in deciding a vehicle’s total cost of ownership, and they help spread the word on Ford’s commitment to quality manufacturing.
The 2015 Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty win Edmunds.com awards after Edmunds.com analyzed model year 2015 vehicles that came out at the end of 2014 and had unit sales in February 2015 that were at least 25 percent of the average unit sales for a specific market segment. According to Edmunds.com, the average retained value for the Transit Connect after five years is 47 percent, and for the F-350 Super Duty it’s 58.5 percent.
On top of the Edmunds.com award, the Transit Connect was also named ALG’s Best Resale Value for midsize commercial vans, and in April the Transit Connect XLT short-wheelbase midsize van won the Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America award in the Mini Passenger Commercial Van Category.
