ABOUT VINCENTRIC BEST FLEET VALUE IN AMERICA

Once per year Vincentric performs a cost of ownership analysis based upon typical use in commercial fleet to determine the Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America™ awards. Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors:

  • Depreciation
  • Fees & Taxes
  • Financing
  • Fuel
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance
  • Opportunity Cost
  • Repairs

Each vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus DC using 20 different ownership/mileage scenarios. Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment. A full list of winners is shown below.

The Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America award is based the vehicle's performance over multiple annual mileages (10k, 15k, 20k, 25k, 30k, 35k, and 40k) and multiple lengths of ownership (24, 36, 48 and 60 months). The chart shown above reflects results from three years of ownership at 20,000 miles per year.
