2022 Ram ProMaster
Ram Trucks isn’t just about pickup trucks, although some are very popular. Known for loading up cargo and towing, Ram also offers cargo vans. Still going strong in 2022 is the Ram ProMaster Van, back and better than ever with an upgraded interior and technology.
Max. Towing Capacity
Avail. Cargo Space
In recent years, Ram has offered the ProMaster Van in a number of configurations, with three levels just like the pickup trucks – 1500, 2500, or 3500. A 1500 model could come with a low roof and a 118-inch wheelbase, or a low or high roof with a 136-inch wheelbase. The 2500 and 3500 models had the choice of a 136-inch wheelbase or a 159-inch wheelbase with a high roof, plus the option of a window van with a high roof and 159-inch wheelbase.
Always ready to power a Ram model, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine powers the 2022 Ram ProMaster, able to generate up to 280 horsepower. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The maximum payload for the Ram ProMaster is 4680 pounds, and has a maximum towing capacity of 6910 pounds.
Although available as Cutaways and Chassis Cab models in recent years, the cargo vans with a cabin are where the real features lie. Cargo and window vans come with a sliding passenger side door without glass and rear-hinged doors with a 260-degree opening, heated exterior mirrors, and the driver’s sliding door can come with or without window installed. Consumers can also choose to get a fixed side window or delete it altogether. In the past, deep tint sunscreen glass, side doorsteps, and splash guards were available.
The 2022 Ram ProMaster has a Best-in-Class lowest load floor height of 21 inches, Best-in-Class maximum cargo width of 6-foot 3-inches, and Best-in-Class 56-inch width between wheel wells. A lot of “Best-in-class” for this cargo van. Practical and flexible, it rides on 16-inch wheels.
Inside, Ram has changed things up for the interior cabin. Still offering up to 463 cubic-feet of cargo space, the Crew Van offers three versions with 6 feet, 7 feet, or 9 feet of cargo space behind the partition. There is also a cargo area under the rear seat, able to store long items up to about 13 feet. Up front, consumers can get two bucket seats, a bucket driver’s seat with a two-person front-passenger bench, or two swivel seats. With all the different kinds of upfits, these choices can change how a consumer interacts with their van. Cloth upholstery is the standard, and some trims have come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated seats in recent years.
Cargo vans are typically used by small and commercial businesses due to their huge customization capabilities. Able to make use of custom interior setups called Upfits, consumers can choose from a variety of options based on their needs. The 2022 Ram ProMaster offers a trades interior upfit, mobile office interior upfit, and delivery interior upfit. Also available, the chassis cab with a platform upfit or a box van upfit, and the cutaway van with a service upfit or a box van upfit.
