The cost of the Sprinter drove away a good deal of Ram Van buyers who were looking for multi-passenger use. Ford had picked up a great share when the Ram Van left the scene. GM didn't gain much ground since the Savanna and Express are narrow and the cargo room limited.

The Ford Econoline is nearing it's EOL as well. Ford plans on bringing in a Transit multi-passenger and cargo van as the replacement.

At this point in time, the only real offering for 12-passenger vans are Ford and Nissan. Nissan just released the NV2500. Mileage isn't all that great though.
