Vehicles with Safety & Quality Ratings
Ram now has a full-size commercial van every bit the equal of the forthcoming Ford Transit, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Nissan NV, and a fair bit more sophisticated than GM's aging vans. Based on the Fiat Ducato, the 2014 Ram ProMaster 1500, 2500 and 3500 cargo vans build on this Italian workhorse by adding a Pentastar V6 engine option, modern 6-speed transmissions and a number of customization options. Unlike other commercial vans, the ProMaster is pulled by its front wheels, freeing up space to create a more versatile cargo floor. The unit-body construction and optional 3.0-liter diesel engine (available early 2014) allow the new ProMaster to lay claim to a number of best in class accolades, such as fuel economy, cargo capacity, turning radius, payload and ceiling height.
