Ram Commercial today revealed the 2021 Ram ProMaster at National Truck Equipment Association’s (NTEA) The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Aimed at one of the largest commercial customer categories – vocational use – the 2021 Ram ProMaster is a full-size van designed for businesses, construction jobsites and commercial fleets.

“Ram Commercial was formed in 2014, and our full-size van customers have enjoyed Ram’s benchmark durability ever since,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Ram Commercial continues to focus solely on trucks and commercial vehicles, allowing us to deliver confidence for hard-working people every day, no matter their line of work.”

New for 2021, and making its debut on an FCA vehicle, a class-exclusive digital rearview mirror option is available to replace the traditional rearview mirror with a 9.2-inch wide LCD monitor.

The digital rearview mirror displays video in real time from a rear-facing camera and can be turned off to revert back to a traditional reflective mirror. The digital rearview mirror is available on all ProMaster models and provides an unobstructed rear view that enhances safety and prevents accidents while on the job.

Crosswind Assist is now as standard equipment on all 2021 Ram ProMaster models and helps the driver keep the vehicle stable, even when wind gusts attempt to push the vehicle off course.

ProMaster now offers several available safety options including blind spot with cross path, forward collision warning with Emergency Brake Assist and ambient/courtesy lights.

Blind spot monitoring with cross path detection is an available option and warns the driver when vehicles enter ProMaster’s blind spot. Available on ProMaster cargo vans, blind spot monitoring enhances safety and lowers the total cost of ownership by avoiding collision repairs, downtime and increased insurance premiums.

Forward collision warning with emergency brake assist is an available option and applies partial braking to mitigate the collision and increase the driver’s time to react to the impending collision. Available on all ProMaster models, forward collision warning with emergency brake assist reduces the total cost of ownership by avoiding collision repairs, downtime, lost productivity and revenue and reduces liability exposure.

Ambient/courtesy lights are available when packaged on all ProMaster models and enhances lower interior lighting with LEDs for customers who utilize ProMaster as a mobile office and for upfitters as well.

The 2021 Ram ProMaster is available in 18 different wheelbase and roof height configurations and features the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. All ProMaster models come with a class-exclusive front-wheel-drive system.

ProMaster includes best-in-class features like standard V6 power, turning radius, standard interior cargo height, load-floor height, cargo width between wheel wells and maximum cargo width.

Pricing for the 2021 Ram ProMaster will be announced closer to when the vehicle is available later this summer.
