2019 Ram ProMaster vs 2019 Ford Transit near Spring, TX

Building up a business can be stressful, especially once you start considering what vehicle you need to get you on the open road. That’s where we come in! We understand just how important a cargo van can be for a business, especially if you work in catering or construction. We’ll be looking at two of the top cargo vans in the segment to figure out which one will truly help you elevate your business. These vans include the 2019 Ram ProMaster and the 2019 Ford Transit. The ProMaster has an increase in towing and payload in 2019, along with a few front-end updates, and three new wheelbase and roof configurations. The 2019 Transit has added new hinges on the long-wheelbase model, offers a few different layouts, and has made a few changes to feature availability. As you keep reading down below you’ll learn more about the power and features that you can expect to find in each cargo van! Which one is our top pick? Keep reading to find out.

2019 Ram ProMaster Power & Handling

Cargo vans have an almost impossible task for maintaining power with handling and stability. That’s no problem for the ProMaster. This van comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which can deliver up to 260 pound-feet of torque and 280 horsepower. All of the power goes straight to the front wheels. Standard with this engine is a six-speed automatic transmission, which will surely give you the smooth shifting you’re looking for. In terms of towing capacity, you can expect to tow up to 6,800 pounds! For payload, the highest configuration will get you a payload rating of around 4,430 pounds.

2019 Ford Transit Power & Handling

One standard engine is responsible for controlling the 2019 Transit. This engine is a 3.7-liter V6, which can crank out up to 275 horsepower. This is fairly weak in comparison to the 5 more horsepower that is created with the ProMaster’s engine. The power will also go to the rear wheels, instead of the front wheels. The standard transmission for the Transit is also a six-speed automatic transmission, which does help to make the cargo van competitive. As for payload, you will only be getting up to 4,010 in payload capacity, which can be a deal breaker if you need to haul heavier items.

2019 Ram ProMaster Features & Design

Not only are there multiple configurations available with the ProMaster (especially wheelbase and roof heights), there is also a long list of standard features! Some of these standard features include cloth upholstery, split-opening rear doors, two USB ports, a media player interface, a rearview camera, a telescoping-only steering wheel, a 4-speaker audio system, remote locking and unlocking, cargo lights, manually adjustable mirrors, 16-inch steel wheels, an auxiliary audio jack, a full-size spare tire, and tie-down rings.

2019 Ford Transit Features & Design
