Introducing the New 2022 Ram ProMaster
Ram Truck has really been upgrading its vehicles as of late, and although most of those are pickup trucks, these models have come a long way from the simple work truck. Of course, that’s why the Ram1500 Classic is still around and continues to be a popular choice. For those who like Ram but need more than a pickup truck cab can offer, there are Ram vans like the ProMaster and ProMaster City. Recently signing off as the official van of the Ram BandVan Back to Live Tour, the ProMaster is not only the perfect choice for a band on the go. The 2022 Ram ProMaster has changed the standards for a hardworking Class 2 full-size van with new upgrades and additions to bring it to the next level.
