FORD WINS MORE VINCENTRIC AWARDS THAN ANY AUTOMAKER
The 18th annual Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America™ Awards were announced, with Ford earning an outstanding nine awards, more than any other automaker.

What is Vincentric?
Vincentric is an independent, privately held automotive data compilation and analysis firm. Using their proprietary Dynamic Cost to Own™ database, Vincentric comprehensively reviews vehicle cost of ownership using eight factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. They measure the overall cost of owning and operating vehicles and the impact on the value provided to owners.
What are the Vincentric Awards?
Annually, Vincentric grants the Best Value Awards™ to vehicles in both the consumer and fleet markets. They evaluate each car in all 50 states plus DC using 28 different ownership/mileage scenarios. They identify winners by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in most scenarios for their segment.
