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.

Amazon to Buy Thousands of Electric Ram ProMaster Vans

Friday, January 28th, 2022

Ram will be entering a purchase agreement with the e-commerce giant Amazon. According to information supplied by the online publication Inside EVs, Ram will be supplying Amazon with thousands of electric Ram ProMaster vans every year starting in 2024. Although Ram has not yet produced an electric ProMaster van, like many other automakers, it has been shifting its focus toward the blooming EV sector. Ram recently announced its plans for an electric Ram pickup, so we’ll have to keep our ears open for more information. This news about electric ProMasters is promising, however. Ram’s ProMaster vans have been updated for the 2022 model year, so they will serve as a good base for electrification. We’ll dive in further and see exactly what Ram plans to do in conjunction with Amazon.

Ram Partners with Amazon for Delivery Trucks

According to the online publication Inside EVs, Ram will be entering into a purchasing agreement with Amazon for electric Ram ProMaster Vans. As per the agreement, Amazon will be buying electric Ram ProMaster vans every year, starting in 2024. For many years, Amazon has been a dominating force in the e-commerce business. As demand for goods increases, so does the need for drivers and delivery vehicles. With the ongoing global climate crisis, however, many automakers have been looking toward electric vehicles as a way to reduce carbon emissions. If Ram is able to supply electric ProMaster vans to Amazon, this will greatly reduce overall carbon emissions. Inside EVs was able to find a very apt comment about the overall agreement. It reads,

“As part of a separate agreement with Stellantis, Amazon will be the first commercial customer for Stellantis’ new Ram ProMaster Battery Electric Vehicle launching in 2023. Stellantis, with input from Amazon, designed the vehicle with unique last-mile delivery features and Amazon will deploy the vehicle to routes across the United States. Building on the current relationship and as part of the long-term agreement, Stellantis and Amazon will be putting thousands of BEV ProMasters on the road every year.” 

This will be a great opportunity for Stellantis and Ram. The upcoming ProMaster van will be the brand’s first all-electric model. It is set to debut in the second half of 2023 as a rival to Ford’s E-Transit. Stellantis has not yet revealed any information about the electric ProMaster, but it will be based on the 2022 Ram ProMaster. Amazon will also equip the electric delivery vans with cloud computing services and in-car dashboard software. We’ll be waiting for more information, but so far this is exciting news for Ram.

Thursday, November 21st, 2019

U.S. News & World Report has handed Ram Truck its latest accolade — it named the pickup maker as the Best Truck Brand for 2020. The award, aptly titled “Best Vehicle Brand Awards” evaluates 35 different brands with the aim of recognizing industry-wide excellence in every segment, including cars, SUVs, trucks and other luxury vehicles.

By offering more content, more comfort and segment-leading features Ram is building trucks that meet and exceed the needs of the widest range of buyers,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. 

Reliability, safety data, test drives, and credible published reviews are all taken into account by U.S. News & World Report. A subsequent in-depth analysis follows so that the publication can issue its rankings. “The Ram 1500 has the capability of a work truck with the interior of a luxury SUV. It’s one of the few trucks that can do almost everything you ask of it, and do it all well,” said Jamie Page Deaton, Executive editor — U.S. News Best Cars. 

U.S. News Best Cars determined award winners by averaging the overall score of individual automakers’ products in each award segment. Once the tallies were complete, the brand with the highest overall average score was named the immediate winner in the segment. Where do the overall scores come from? From the publication’s Best Cars rankings which are based on a combination of reliability data, consensus of the automotive press, and awarded safety scores.

Sleeker and Stronger For a Reason

These new Ram ProMaster vans are lighter and more aerodynamic with an available eTorque small electric assistive motor that is available addition to the 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine options. This torque provides up to 90 lb-ft of torque over last year’s model for the V6 and up to 130 lb-ft of torque in short-term torque, boosting fuel efficiency for the gasoline engines.

More Maximum Payload Means More Results

Ram’s light duty and heavy duty pickup trucks are the backbone of the truck industry. Setting records and a trusted brand by many companies, Ram continues to do more for the business and the community. They designed a truck just for the farmers of America with the Ram Harvest Edition and continue to make stylish models for people who want to give their truck a little attitude, like the Ram Hydro Blue. Then there’s Ram cargo vans like the Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City. They come with many designs to make nearly anything possible.


The many interior designs for the Ram ProMaster and ProMaster City are known as “upfits.” We discuss them a little it in detail in our Ram ProMaster Cargo Van and Upfits article, but today we’re going to look at the many ways they can be used. We’ll be discussing the following:

The Trades Interior Upfit that transforms a cargo van’s empty cargo area into an organized mobile workshop and warehouse with storage.


Ram ProMaster Transformed Into Living Space on Wheels

Thursday, October 5th, 2017


The Ram ProMaster is a large van available in four configurations, a cargo van, cutaway van, chassis cab and window van, and a number of upfits, but there’s one upfit that truly makes the Ram ProMaster unlike any other cargo van on the market.

Roadtrek, is an RV outfitter and they saw potential to transform Ram ProMaster vans into mobile living spaces, and one of Roadtrek’s creations is here in South Florida. Local resident Bob Barnard bought a RoadTrek Zion RV (Class B) in 2015 and he and his wife regularly use it for all of the activities and events they do with2017091395153622951506091621662 the Greater Fort Lauderdale Road Runners Club.

The RoadTrek Zion RV is built off the Ram ProMaster chassis cab platform and it is a Class B motor home, which means the vehicle does not have a slide out that expands the interior of the vehicle when parked. The van has two front seats for the driver and a passenger, and the cargo space features built-in storage cabinets, a small kitchen, bathroom, sofa and bed. The van gives Bob and his wife a comfortable retreat when organizing events at all hours of the day.

2017091395153650951506091616879The RoadTrek Zio RV offers all of the functionality of an RV, but it’s smaller size makes it much easier to drive easier to drive and get where you need to go and it does not have the same parking dilemmas that come along with large Class A or Class B motorhomes. Additionally, the van is a member of the Ram family and it is powered by the award-winning 3.6-liter V6 engine, so it is durable, efficient and long lasting and it is equipped with a 12V AGM battery with up to 182Ah, so the battery lasts for hours before needing to be recharged.
