The project-ready 2022 Ram ProMaster returns with upgrades from the previous model year. To start, the Crew Van configuration is a new addition to the Cargo Van, Window Van, Chassis Cab, and Cutaway Cab configurations that were available before. The Crew Van has six, seven, or nine feet available for storage depending on which version consumers pick. It also has a second-row bench seat for up to three and an added partition to separate the passengers from the cargo area in the back.
In fact, the overall seating options have been updated for comfort and appearance, now available to come in two-toned colors, leather-trimmed materials, swivel versions, and a driver suspension seat. The ProMaster is also able to be customized with various upfit package options to meet lifestyle needs.
The Crew Van configuration and the seat updates are not the only new additions, however, as Uconnect 5C Navigation with Ram Connect is also now available alongside the standard Uconnect 5 system. The Uconnect 5 comes with a seven-inch touchscreen while the Uconnect 5C NAV comes with a 10-inch touchscreen. Whichever one consumers choose, both options feature dual smartphone Bluetooth connectivity, profile personalization, technology to save chosen settings, and home screen controls. This goes alongside the 3.5-inch analog cluster display.
The 2022 ProMaster also offers a BusinessLink program and Ram Telematics that allow business owners certain perks and services including preferred commercial customer and real-time data updates. As for the tech under the hood, the ProMaster is working with an upgraded 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission that gives 276 horsepower and up to 6,910 pounds of towing.
Similar to its smaller counterpart, the ProMaster City, the 2022 ProMaster takes safety into consideration. Standard and available features include six airbags throughout the cabin as well as the likes of the Active Drive Assist System, which has traffic sign recognition, drowsy driver detection, cruise control, active braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, high-beam headlamps, forward collision warning, parking guidance, driving cameras, and more. Windshield sensors are also able to detect rain on the glass and activate the windshield wipers automatically and adjust their speed to the amount of water present.
Ram is offering the 2022 ProMaster at an MSRP of $35,555 with destination included. It is available for purchase now and faces off against the GMC Savana, Ford Transit, and Mercedes-Benz Metris-Class as potential rivals.
Ram has suggested that it will create a battery-electric ProMaster for the 2023 model year based on consumer demand.
