The Ram ProMaster Gets Improvements for 2019
The Ram ProMaster has always been a great vehicle for consumers and business owners who need to get tough jobs done, carry loads of equipment, or even make use of one of the many Ram ProMaster Upfits. Now, for the 2019 model year, the Ram ProMaster lineup is getting even better with new configurations and increased capabilities. There’s also a little style being thrown in for once, albeit not grandeur, but it’s something. Read on to learn more about the ProMaster for 2019.
Body and Style
For 2019, the Ram ProMaster will now be available in one of four configurations: a 136-inch wheelbase with a low roof for the 2500, a 136-inch wheelbase with a high-roof for the 2500, and a 136-inch wheelbase with low or high roof for the 3500. These various configurations offer consumers more options when deciding on the kind of power they need for the job. The difference in wheelbase can also change how consumers utilize the interior cabin of the 2019 ProMaster.
The Ram ProMaster has never been one to have a mind for fashion, but the 2019 Ram ProMaster will be replacing the outgoing model’s crosshairs grille for one with bold “RAM” script in the middle of the front fascia. And…yeah, that’s it. Nothing new in terms of exterior style.
What we’re really interested in is what the 2019 Ram ProMaster is capable of, right? Of course. The 2019 Ram ProMaster 1500 will now be able to handle a payload of up to 4,000 pounds. As the pattern goes, the higher the number, the more it can hold – the 2019 Ram ProMaster 2500 is rated for a maximum payload of 4,230 pounds. That makes the 2019 Ram ProMaster 3500 the big brother of the three, rated for a 4,680-pound payload capacity. For single-rear-wheel vehicles, these numbers are the best-in-class for maximum payload capacity.
If the payload capacity is stronger, then so is the towing capacity. The 2019 Ram ProMaster touts a maximum towing capacity of 6,800 pounds when properly equipped with the new Trailer-tow Group package. So far, all of these are welcome improvements to the previous 2018 Ram ProMaster specs and capabilities.
Make It Yours
Just think of what one can do with the new 2019 Ram ProMaster. There are plenty of outfits one can choose from to make use of the new payload and space. We actually had a little walkthrough on how to turn a Ram ProMaster into a mobile entertainment room for Local Area Connection (LAN) parties, watching movies on-the-go, maybe even a little #VanLife if looking to travel and don’t mind a fold-out couch. Possibilities are nearly endless.
Keeping your fingers crossed? The new 2019 Ram ProMaster with have a starting MSRP of $30,195 (plus destination fee), only $1100 more than the 2018 model.
