Ram’s ProMaster has custom options for wide range of commercial needs

The ProMaster is Ram Commercial’s entry for the Class 2 full-size van segment. Ram’s full-size van benefits from an exclusive front-wheel-drive system, reducing weight and complexity by locating all components beneath the cab. This keeps the cargo load floor height and step-in height very low, which is a great feature for the person getting in and out of the van all day. It also helps in low-traction surfaces, like snow, since there is always weight on the front wheels to provide traction. Coupled with gas and EcoDiesel powertrain options, the result is a purpose-built, highly customizable van designed to exceed the demands of commercial customers and upfitters.

The ProMaster boasts best-in-class features, including:

• Standard V-6 horsepower
• Turning diameter
• Standard interior cargo height
• Load floor height
• Cargo width between wheel wells
• Maximum cargo width
• Class-exclusive front-wheel drive
• Most capable van-based Chassis Cab

The 2018 Ram ProMaster features the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a torque-laden, 3.0- liter EcoDiesel I-4 engine. The engines are paired, respectively, with a proven six-speed automatic transmission and an electronically controlled Dual Active Drive six-speed automated manual for outstanding fuel economy.

The Ram design team started with a functional exterior and interior, adding distinct Ram styling while adapting the full-size van for North America.

The ProMaster model lineup includes 15 different models ranging from the ProMaster 1500 Cargo Van with 118-inch wheelbase and low roof to the ProMaster 2500 Window Van with 159-inch wheelbase and high roof all the way to the ProMaster 3500 Chassis Cab Cutaway with 159-inch wheelbase and extended frame.

Available in nine exterior colors, the ProMaster lineup provides a wide array of configurations and customization options for business owners and contractors.
