While Ram has a particular well received social media presence, the brand hasn’t been too great about updating their Build & Price configurator until a vehicle is usually already out. However, thanks to our friend Cody Wagner, we can see the new 2019 Build & Price configurator for the 2019 Ram ProMaster and 2019 Ram ProMaster City.
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 240 lbs., to a maximum of 4,680, 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.
- ProMaster 1500 – 4,000 pounds
- ProMaster 2500 – 4,230 pounds
- ProMaster 3500 – 4,680 pounds – best-in-class
The full-size Ram ProMaster continues to improve its capability with a 30 percent increase in towing capacity — up to 6,800 pounds. 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.
The 2019 Ram ProMaster City offers modern styling and professional appeal in a compact, capable package. ProMaster City aggressively competes in the compact Class 1 van segment with a focus on commercial customer needs and total cost of ownership. The smaller of two van offerings from Ram is available in two-seat Tradesman cargo van and five-seat passenger wagon configurations in two different trims (Tradesman and SLT).
Ram ProMaster City best-in-class features:
- Payload – 1,885 pounds
- Cargo volume – 131.7 cubic feet
- 178 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque mated to an exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission
- Cargo width and length – 60.4 inches and 87.2 inches
- Cargo width between wheel wells – 48.4 inches
- Wheelbase – 122.4 inches
- 448-mile driving range with standard engine
Exterior design and related body systems on the Ram ProMaster City collectively deliver outstanding versatility, practicality and a level of refinement unexpected in the commercial small van category.
