RAM Commercial Vehicles
The Truck You Need – RAM Commercial Vehicles
Big engine, strong suspension, tough frame, and a highly versatile cargo hold – these are some of the features that define a truck because a truck was made to do work. Modern trucks make a point of including comforts, conveniences, and luxuries, but that doesn’t mean a RAM is all padded armrests and heated seats. In fact, the RAM 1500 is just one model in an entire lineup of RAM commercial vehicles purpose-built for any business to get things done quicker and more easily than ever before.
It starts with the pickup trucks. The light-duty 1500 is renowned as a commuter vehicle but make no mistake; it’s a capable machine in any configuration. Heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 models bring extra payload and towing capacities for doing the real heavy lifting. If all that sounds good, but you need something other than a pickup bed behind the driver’s seat, there’s the Chassis Cab. The Chassis Cab allows owners to equip practical kits like dump bodies, flat platforms, service bodies, and more with several heavy-duty variations to build upon.
Sometimes though, a big, beefy truck isn’t quite right for the application. That’s where RAM ProMaster steps in. The standard ProMaster van offers a huge cargo hold which can function as a mobile office, a tool shed, a warehouse – you name it. Configurable with windows and chassis cab variants, the ProMaster is just as versatile as the 3500 HD.
Finally, business owners who want a cargo van but don’t want one as big and unwieldy as the ProMaster – especially for urban settings – can turn to the ProMaster City. An efficient FWD system, a spacious, high-capacity cargo hold, and configurations to allow passenger seating make the ProMaster City a great choice for urban workers.
A Lineup of Heavy Hitters
The half-dozen RAM commercial truck models can lock down an infield, but with many configurations available for each, there are enough options to fill out a whole playoff roster. Every one of them is designed and built with RAM DNA – that is, with an emphasis on durable construction, quality interiors, and mind-boggling capability. You can find something to meet the needs of almost any business with a RAM commercial vehicle.
RAM 2500/3500 HD
The best trucks for workers who have serious heavy lifting to do, RAM 2500/3500 HDs can tow 19,680 lbs and 35,100 lbs, respectively. The 2500 HD can also take a payload of over 4,000 lbs, while the 3500 HD can handle up to 7,680 lbs. Both trucks are available with seriously capable V8 HEMIs and Cummins diesel engines that set class standards for power and torque. Combined with a 98.5% high strength steel frame, these are the longest lasting work trucks out there, and they’re backed by warranties to prove it.
Large touchscreens and 360-degree camera views make towing easier than ever, and virtually all the luxuries found in high-trim 1500s are available to 2500 and 3500 HD models too. The RAM 2500 HD starts at $34,095 and 3500 HD at $35,545, so upgrading is an easy call to make if you know you need to move some heavy stuff but aren’t sure of the exact maximums. Heavy-duty RAM pickups will never let you down.
RAM Chassis Cab
There’s no mistaking a RAM Chassis Cab for a commuter truck. Available in 3500, 3500 10k, 4500, and 5500 models, the Chassis Cab is made for upfitting. There’s no standard truck bed on the back end, so you can work with upfitting specialists to find and equip your Chassis Cab with exactly the right loadout for your needs. This is still a RAM at heart, so modern driving assistance features like adaptive cruise control and the huge touch screen are still available, and different trim levels allow any RAM to feel like a luxury ride.
A best-in-class dual alternator output of 440 A is available, and optional dual fuel tanks give RAM Chassis Cab an unparalleled range. Dump bodies, steel platforms, service bodies, cherry pickers – you name it, and RAM can do it. If you have specialized fieldwork to do where your work truck needs to do more than just tow and haul, RAM Chassis Cab is the truck for you.
Look, we know that pulling around small mountains is a pretty specific application. Businesses for whom a RAM 1500 isn’t quite right might not be looking for monstrous towing power – it might just be that they need an even more practical, usable cargo hold. Enter the RAM ProMaster, RAM’s panel van offering. Available in 1500 – 3500 designs with 8’ – 13’ cargo length configurations and high roof options, the ProMaster cargo hold ranges from huge to cavernous. Still a RAM, these vans can tow up to 6,910 lbs and haul payloads well over 3,500 lbs too.
Best-in-class markers like width between wheel wells of 56”, load height of 21”, a 36’ turning circle, 280 hp, and a class-exclusive FWD system make the ProMaster a stand-out service vehicle. Powerful, nimble, easy to load, and ready to be upfit for all industrial applications, the ProMaster was tailor-made for fleet service. Chassis Cab and Cutaway configurations are also available for unique upfit alternatives to the cargo hold. There’s simply no better commercial RAM for moving cargo, supplies, and mobile workplaces.
RAM ProMaster City
Businesses that primarily operate in cramped urban settings or who find that the standard ProMaster is bigger than they really want will appreciate the ProMaster City small cargo van. Best-in-class performance like a payload of up to 1,900 lbs, 131.7 cu.ft. of cargo volume, and a 24 MPG combined fuel efficiency makes the ProMaster City an excellent choice for those who need a more conservative design. It’s not at the expense of classic RAM power either, with 178 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque being best-in-class power numbers too.
The ProMaster City is also a great choice for moving people. With seating for up to 5, it makes a durable alternative to a minivan when the cargo room is more important than the number of seats. Without the seats, it can accommodate cargo over 7’ long, over 4’ tall, and up to 5’ wide with 48” between the wheel wells. Its turning circle of only 21’ makes it substantially easier to handle than any other RAM truck – even the 1500 needs 23’ to turn around. If you need a lot of space but don’t have a lot of room for parking or maneuvering, look no further than a RAM ProMaster City.
