America’s best-selling van, the Ford Transit, is being updated with a new 2021 model as recreational vehicle demand has increased to meet the needs of delivery businesses that are serving customers working from home.
According to the RV Industry Association, July RV shipments were the highest in 40 years at 43,035 units, and 46 million Americans say they plan to take an RV trip in the next 12 months.
“With many Americans working from home and practicing social distancing during the pandemic, the popularity of recreational vehicles has soared at the same time package delivery has seen incredible growth,” says Tiffany Chang, Ford fleet brand strategy manager in a press release. “Our new 2021 Transit options help people design the recreational vehicles of their dreams and help enable our commercial customers to more efficiently deliver goods and services across the country.”
To make the vehicle simpler for outdoor enthusiasts, all-new Adventure Prep and RV Prep packages are being added to the 2021 Transit.
