Ram Unveils All-New 2023 ProMaster Van

Friday, March 18th, 2022

Ram recently unveiled the all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster van at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. There, Ram debuted its full-size van designed to meet the needs and demands of businesses, commercial fleets, and anyone in need of a strong work van. As of late, Ram has been focusing on EVs, specifically the 2024 Ram EV. The automaker has promised the next generation of electric pickup that can outperform while emitting zero emissions. Although there’s some time left until the electric Ram, Ram is aiming to incorporate some of its electrification processes into current models like the Ram ProMaster. This will arrive later in 2023 as a battery-electric vehicle (BEV). For now, we’ll focus on the all-new 2023 ProMaster and see what consumers can expect.

2023 Ram ProMaster Debuts

Ram recently unveiled its all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster van at the National Truck Equipment Association trade show in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 2023 ProMaster van arrives with more features, better capability, and more confidence to get the job done. Ram wanted to improve its full-size van to better meet the needs and demands of its customers. This includes commercial fleet operators, construction crews, and businesses both large and small. With the all-new Ram ProMaster, Ram did exactly that. About the 2023 ProMaster van, Ram Brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. said,  

“Ram ProMaster continues to evolve as we listen and respond to commercial customer input, and the 2023 model is a culmination of that effort,” said Mike Koval Jr. “Now available in three roof heights and featuring a broad array of safety, advanced technology and connectivity features, Ram ProMaster delivers confidence for hardworking people every day, no matter their line of work.”

The all-new Ram ProMaster features some of the best-in-class features like cargo volume, interior cargo height, load-floor height, turning radius, and cargo width. The work van also features a host of new advanced technologies like parallel/perpendicular park assist. Equipped with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 capable of 276 horsepower and 250lb-ft of torque, the 2023 ProMaster van is able to get just about any job done. The van features up to 6,910 pounds of towing capacity and 4,680 pounds of payload. 

Inside the 2023 Ram ProMaster van, customers will note an evolved interior. Ram designed the interior to provide comfort and flexibility to drivers and passengers. As such, the van features a push-button starter, keyless entry, and a steering wheel equipped with electronic system controls. A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard. Additional features include a highly requested improvement, a high-resolution backup camera with grid lines. There’s also a digital rearview mirror that displays video in real-time and a 360-degree surround-view camera so that drivers can have enhanced visibility. 

Ram’s new 2023 ProMaster van comes equipped with everything customers need to remain safe while still performing their job. The van features Ram Telematics technology which lets owners track vehicles and driver behavior. Ram will eventually release a battery-electric ProMaster in 2023, so those wanting to reduce carbon emissions can rejoice. Amazon will be the first commercial customer to use these BEVs, so we’ll have to wait to see if they’re well-received. For now, those in need of a strong and capable work van can purchase the 2023 Ram ProMaster.

Stellantis Looking to Invest in Software Development

Tuesday, December 14th, 2021

Stellantis will be focusing its efforts on software development and subscription services. The automaker conglomerate who owns Ram, Jeep, Dodge, and Chrysler will be following in the footsteps of other automakers with services like navigation and entertainment. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares recently spoke during Stellantis’ Software Day event. There, Tavares outlined Stellantis’ future plans concerning connectivity and electric and autonomous vehicles. According to Tavares, Stellantis plans to invest about $34 billion to speed up its software and electrification development through 2025. There have been rumors about an electric Ram pickup in the works, but this investment will boost Stellantis’ capacities. The automaker wants to have 34 million vehicles that are connected and able to receive over-the-air updates by 2030.

Stellantis Eyeing New Development and Software

Stellantis is aiming for a revamp of its software services. During a Software Day event, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares spoke about the company’s future plans. Stellantis wants to invest $34 billion to speed up its software and electrification development. The automaker wants to increase their growth by hiring new software engineers. The goal is to have 4,500 software engineers globally by 2024. Stellantis also plans to build a software academy so that the company can continue to update training and also retrain those already working for the company. About their efforts, Tavares said,

“Our electrification and software strategies will support the shift to become a sustainable mobility tech company to lead the pack, leveraging the associated business growth with over-the-air features and services and delivering the best experience to our customers,” said Carlos Tavares. “With the three all-new, AI-powered, technology platforms to arrive in 2024, deployed across the four STLA vehicle platforms, we will leverage the speed and agility associated with the decoupling of hardware and software cycles.”

Stellantis has high hopes for the future. The company wants to invest in three new AI-powered platforms that will be used in 2024. These are called STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit, and STLA AutoDrive. These platforms are expected to transform how drivers connect with vehicles. 

New Partnerships and Improved Connectivity 

Stellantis will also be partnering with several companies including BMW, Foxconn, and Waymo. These new partnerships will help the automaker accelerate its investments into autonomous vehicles and connectivity. What this means is that consumers will have more conveniences than ever before. Improving connectivity will enable over-the-air updates which can consistently update vehicle software like fuel mileage or even horsepower. This saves both the driver and the company money and time as they won’t have to come in for service. 

Stellantis’ new platforms will also make AI-based applications like navigation, voice assistance, and subscription services easier and more manageable. Entertainment will also improve as parents will have greater access to the latest movies to keep their children entertained during long drives. Stellantis wants to improve how drivers interact with their vehicles. This step toward software development will launch the company into a higher echelon. We’ll have to see where Stellantis goes from here, but their future is certainly looking bright.
