2019 Ram ProMaster 2500

Quimby Mug Bayou Florida

Greater payload and towing capacities, fleet telematics, distinct grille badging and three new models top the list of changes for Ram’s 2019 ProMaster.

Ram Commercial Manager David Sowers provided a tour recently of the brand’s latest workhorse during a media event at FCA’s proving grounds in Chelsea, Mich.

“I’m pretty proud of the enhancements that we’ve made to ProMaster for this year,” Sowers said.

A brief test-drive on one of the company’s test tracks demonstrated the van’s quick acceleration, nimble handling, comfortable ride and responsive braking. Driving the high-roof ProMaster 2500 with a 136-inch wheelbase was reminiscent of driving an SUV.

During the short drive, which included plenty of sharp turns, Sowers explained how the van has gotten substantial gains in towing and payload.

“The payload on a 136-inch low roof goes up to 4,680 pounds which is the highest payload of any Class 2 van that’s out there. As a matter of fact, that’s higher payload of any Ford Transit including their 350 dually,” Sowers said.

Also new for 2019, ProMaster has gone from gray to black on its bumpers and side panels and has gotten a large Ram badge on the grille. Sowers explained that OEM badging is often removed prior to vinyl wrapping. Also, keep in mind that the United State Postal Service will be getting roughly 19,000 ProMasters. The USPS, like other government agencies, often removes OEM badging.

“We want to continue to get credit for all the vans that we have out on the road. We’re running our plant full-out and selling out every year,” Sowers explained. “We want customers to realize that once they see FedEx, UPS, USPS driving our vehicles that these are very smart fleet managers making decisions. So now it’s going to say RAM out on the front. They’re not going to take that off. That’s part of the grille. It’s going to stay there. That will be great brand attribution.”
