Press Kit: 2018 Ram ProMaster

2018 Ram ProMaster Fact Sheet

Auburn Hills, Mich. September 1, 2017 The ProMaster is Ram Commercial’s entry for the Class 2 full-size van segment. Ram’s full-size van benefits from an exclusive front-wheel-drive system, reducing weight and complexity by locating all components beneath the cab. This keeps the cargo load floor height and step-in height very low, which is a great feature for the person getting in and out of the van all day. It also helps in low-traction surfaces, like snow, since there is always weight on the front wheels to provide traction. Coupled with gas and EcoDiesel powertrain options, the result is a purpose-built, highly customizable van designed to exceed the demands of commercial customers and upfitters.
