Windsor, Ontario – Capability is a primary purchase consideration for commercial customers. For the 2019 model year, Ram has upped the ante with increases in both payload capability and towing capability for Ram ProMaster.
Ram has also updated the exterior appearance of its popular Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City vans. The most notable visual cues are the redesign of both vans’ front fascias now integrating the “RAM” grille theme carried over from the pickup line.
“Ram has taken a larger presence in the commercial vehicle market with the help of our Ram ProMaster and Ram ProMaster City,” Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand – FCA. “Our van offerings answer the key segment demands with class-exclusive features, greater capability and low total cost of ownership.”
The 2019 Ram ProMaster adds three new models to bolster its offerings in a segment where right-sized is paramount: ProMaster 2500 Cargo Van 136-inch wheelbase low roof, ProMaster 3500 Cargo Van 136-inch wheelbase low roof, ProMaster 3500 Cargo Van 136-inch wheelbase high roof
Ram ProMaster also builds on capability with increases in payload, as much as 109 kg (240 lb.), to a maximum of 2,123 kg (4,680 lb.), boasting the highest payload of any Class 2 cargo van on the market today. In fact, Ram ProMaster has the highest available standard payload in the segment in all three payload classes.
The full-size Ram ProMaster continues to improve its capability with a 30 percent increase in towing capacity—up to 3,084 kg (6,800 lb.). To enhance the new towing weights, a new Trailer Tow Group is available adding a Class IV receiver hitch with four- and seven-pin wiring harness.
Upfitter-friendly technology for Ram ProMaster includes a Vehicle System Interface Module (VSIM) with 13 inputs and 41 outputs (54 total). The VSIM feature gives upfitters quick and reliable connections to vehicle systems. New optional interior LED lighting is 20 times brighter and offers integrated motion sensors for added convenience.
The exterior design on Ram ProMaster not only receives the new “RAM” grille treatment but also new Black bumpers, side panels and optional Black steel wheels. Polycarbonate side rear windows are now available on high roof models as are side rear windows with steel grates on low roof models.
All 2019 Ram ProMaster configurations are produced at the Saltillo Van Assembly Plant in Saltillo, Mexico. The 2019 Ram ProMaster City is produced at the TOFAS plant in Bursa, Turkey.
