2022 Ram ProMaster Van Receives New Transmission and Technology

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Ram is bringing music to fans around the country with the return of the Ram BandVan. Ram first launched its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help up-and-coming artists and bands by supplying them with a ProMaster van. The automaker partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live as they toured in the full-sized van. The Back to Live Tour will be launching with the Foo Fighters heading the first act. They will be traveling inside the 2022 Ram ProMaster Van which Ram has recently updated. The van features a new transmission and updated technology and safety features. Artists will be able to enjoy the comfortable and tuned-up BandVan as they travel the country touring.

New Technology Inside the ProMaster Van

The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van has gotten a new interior upgrade. Ram has updated the transmission, infotainment system, and safety features. Each van is powered by a transverse-mounted 3.6L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. The addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission has allowed the front wheels to be utilized more. Ram has stated that this new automatic transmission will help improve fuel efficiency and deliver smoother gear changes. 

Aside from the transmission, Ram has upgraded the interior cabin of the 2022 ProMaster Van. The van’s center stack has been redesigned with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen. An optional 10-inch touchscreen is also available. The touchscreen systems feature Uconnect5 software which enables over-the-air updates. It also enables wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Amazon Alexa voice assist. Additional upgrades include more charging ports, two USB and USB Type-C ports, and a 115-volt outlet. The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van also includes a revised center stack that features HVAC controls that replace older rotary knobs. A new panel of switches replaces hazard lights, traction control, and more. The steering wheel comes with more controls and the driver has a more modern instrument panel.

The last change to the 2022 ProMaster Van is a multitude of driver and safety assist technologies. The previous year’s model introduced new active safety features like automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Now, the full-sized van has a 360-degree camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and lane-keeping assist. Bands and artists can rest easy knowing they’re safe on the road in the Ram BandVan. Ram hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 ProMaster Van yet, but prices aren’t likely to be too much higher from previous years. The full-sized commercial van will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Ram BandVan Returns with Back to Live Tour

Ram is getting ready to relaunch its Ram BandVan program. Due to the global pandemic, most things have had to be canceled or postponed. Ram first initiated its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help emerging bands by providing them with a ProMaster BandVan. At the time, Ram partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live. Ram had become the first automaker to offer SiriusXM with 360L and it was also the first to feature personalized stations powered by Pandora. Now all three companies are working together again to promote new and upcoming artists as well as iconic bands like the Foo Fighters. This fall, look out for the Ram BandVan as it crosses state lines bringing music everywhere it goes.

Ram is Hitting the Road

Ram is launching its Ram BandVan once again. The first group to be featured in the Back to Live Tour will be the Foo Fighters. They will be joined by Radkey. In addition to the Foo Fighters and Radkey, Ram will be supporting at least five other emerging artists. New content will be viewable at RamBandVan.com and on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. The punk band Radkey will be the first act of the year. Speaking about the tour Radkey said,

“This has been a year like no other, and now to finally be back on the road rocking with fans in real life, is an incredible feeling,” said Radkey. “We are so thankful to Ram Truck, SiriusXM, and Pandora for our Ram BandVan, enabling us and fellow musicians alike to hit the road running and tour once again.”

Ram will be providing the touring artists with the ProMaster Ram BandVan. It will be equipped with SiriusXM so that the artists themselves can also enjoy a variety of ad-free music. Along with music, artists will be able to enjoy sports, talk, comedy, and other radio genres. The Back to Live Tour will use Ram’s recent ad campaign “Spotlight” with Dave Grohl as well as a feature-film documentary called “What Drives Us,” to start the musical journey off. Ram is excited to offer fans a return to normalcy. The automaker is also excited to help artists get on their feet and reconnect with their fans. As the vice president of Stellantis Marissa Hunter said,

“Our Ram BandVan program first launched in 2018 and we are thrilled to activate the next phase of the initiative to help support musicians doing what they love and bringing their fans the performances that they have missed,” said North America Stellantis Vice President Marissa Hunter. “As the brand that is ‘Built to Serve,’ we share mutual values of hard work and dedication with these talented artists, and it is our pleasure to provide them reliable, comfortable, and spacious ProMaster vans, supporting their careers and helping them to reconnect with friends and fans across the country.”
