The RAM Promaster is a commercial van which is offered in a range of configurations. Designed especially for cargo and the winner of numerous best in class awards, this is a spacious and versatile choice.
RAM Promaster: The Commercial Van that Doesn’t Compromise
If you need a commercial van that’s spacious, strong and designed for work the RAM Promaster really fits the bill. A large van that’s created for carrying cargo, not passengers, it’s way ahead of its competitors in the same class. The Promaster can’t be configured to carry passengers so this van is aimed solely at those who need to carry large amounts of cargo on a regular basis, perfect for industrial use. There is a vast amount of space in the back with an impressive 13,110 litre capacity in the 3500 model. The walls are almost 90 degrees from the flat-load cargo area for efficient configuration and integration of shelving. There is 1422mm between the wheel wells, a distance which is best in class, and a flat-load area which is completely uninterrupted. The hood is short and snub-like, leaving the driving position looking almost straight down at the pavement. Powering the van you’ll find a 3.6-litre V6 engine which comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. This produces 395 horsepower and 410 lb/ft of torque. There’s only front wheel drive available on this van but this contributes to lightweight steering and a turning radius which for the 1500 is best in class.
One of the problems for vans is the access to the rear, making it difficult to load and unload cargo when needed. On the Promaster, this isn’t an issue thanks to the rear doors which can be opened to either 180 or 260 degrees. A sliding door on the driver's side can be added as an optional extra, providing further versatility for access in tight spaces. The Promaster is available in five different design and trim levels including a cutaway and chassis cab. The three different full-sized vans are offered with different dimensions and heights, with the 3500 offering the most space. Vans aren’t typically renowned for being luxurious inside but the RAM range has an impressive set of features. Air conditioning, remote USB ports, bucket seats, trip computer, media hub and hands-free communication with Bluetooth compatibility all come as standard. The 1500, 2500 and 3500 also have a rear back-up camera for easy manoeuvring.
Staying Safe While Working Hard
If you’re carrying large and heavy loads you’ll want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vehicle is safe and secure. RAM recognize the importance of safety and have included a lot of features that offer protection. Along with front clearance lamps and a tire pressure monitoring display, there’s also hill start assist, anti-lock brakes, trailer sway control, electronic stability control, traction control, roll mitigation, drift compensation and brake assist included as standard. Remote keyless entry is also offered together with front, side and curtain airbags for driver and passengers. The RAM Promaster is a commercial van which is ideal for industrial use. The different models provide great choice over the dimensions, allowing users to pick the van which meets their cargo needs.
