Chevrolet's Express Cargo Van was among the nine GM vehicles named as one of Vincentric's 2013 Best Fleet Value in America awards. It is the sixth consecutive time the Express Cargo Van has been honored by Vincentric.
In addition to the Express Cargo Van, three other GM van and truck products were honored by Vincentric, including the Chervolet Express/GMC Savana Passenger G3500, Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500HD Work Truck, and the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 3500HD Work Truck.
In its eighth year, the Vincentric Awards are used by fleet operators to understand vehicle lifecycle costs, a key part of the purchase process, according to the company.
“The Vincentric Awards are a great yearly measurement for fleet vehicles,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales. “This year demonstrates GM’s strength in not only the truck and van segments, but across our product portfolio. These awards are a testament of how we cater to the business needs of any customer – small or large.”
To determine its award winners, Vincentric analyzed more than 3,400 vehicle configurations in 20 different lifecycle cost scenarios, using eight cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. The lifecycle costs were measured in all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., with more than 25 million lifecycle cost measurements used to determine the winning vehicles.
In addition to the vans and trucks, five GM sedans were also named Best Fleet Value winners, including the Buick Encore, Buick Enclave, Buick LaCrosse, Buick Verano, and Chevrolet Spark.
