Can you tell me more about the 2019 Ram ProMaster?
The ProMaster, located in the Class 2 full-size van segment, is available in eighteen different configurations. The 2019 model year comes with an exclusive front-wheel drive system that reduces weight and complexity by putting all of the components under the cab. This means that the step-in height is kept low, and the cargo-load-floor height is also low. Furthermore, the ProMaster features best-in-class features like payload, maximum cargo width, cargo width between wheel wells, load-floor height, standard interior cargo height, and turning diameter. This ProMaster also comes with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower, which pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. This van was perfectly engineered for functionality, and combines that functionality with Ram styling. The final result is a highly customizable van designed to meet the demands of commercial customers.
How about the ProMaster City?
Another option coming out from Ram is the ProMaster City. This van gives you a professional appeal with modern styling to allow for a capable and compact package that impresses anyone you run into. This van competes in the Class 1 van segment, which focuses on total cost of ownership and commercial customer needs. This van comes in a two-seat Tradesman cargo van, or a five-seat passenger wagon configuration called the SLT. The best-in-class features with the ProMaster City include a 448-mile driving range with the standard engine, a wheelbase of 122.4 inches, a cargo width between wheel wells of 48.4 inches, a cargo width and length of 60.4 inches and 87.2 inches, a cargo volume of 131.7 cubic feet, and a payload of capacity for 1,885 pounds.
