Conceived and developed in Italy, the ProMaster also spent quality time proving itself on this side of the Atlantic undergoing extensive, extreme-duty testing. Engineering the ProMaster for the Ram Truck brand required a number of changes in capabilities, powertrain, environments, duty cycles and customers.
The ProMaster is available in two roof heights, three wheelbases and four body lengths. Additionally, the ProMaster offers both a chassis cab and cutaway from the factory. Its unibody frame architecture makes it significantly lighter than the competition. As a result, the ProMaster boasts an impressive best-in-class payload capacity up to 5,160 pounds and a maximum towing capacity up to 5,100 pounds. The gross combined weight rating (GCWR) for the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is 11,500 pounds and 12,500 pounds for the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel I-4. A unibody structure has additional advantages, including stability and strength from front to rear, a reinforced plenum area for optimized engine packaging, and "truer" tuning of chassis systems and related hardware when compared to more common body-on-frame applications.
The unibody system under the cab is an enabler for the ProMaster's segment exclusive front-wheel-drive system. The body-integral construction and multiple configurations allow Ram's ProMaster to be upfitted for virtually every conceivable job. Without rear driveshafts or rear differentials, the proven drive system creates a number of advantages.
