2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van Review: The Passenger Van With No Seats

When you're after lots of passenger or cargo space, the usual choice is to go for an SUV, but if you're running a business on the side and need even more, your only practical choice will be a van of some sort. Enter the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van, a vehicle that has windows but no factory-fitted rear seats. Powered by a 3.6-liter gasoline Pentastar V6 engine producing 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, the first generation of this front-wheel-drive van offers the bare essentials to get the job done. There's little in the way of features and tech, and the ride is somewhat firm, but there's lots of value for money, a solid towing capacity, and tons of configurations to go for. The competition includes the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van and the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van - since it'd need seats to be compared to a Ford Transit or Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van.

2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van: 🚙What’s the difference vs. 2019 Ram ProMaster Window Van?

The end of the decade brings very few changes to the 2020 model year range of ProMaster vans. The Window Van gains a new factory-fitted trailer hitch with a maximum trailer towing weight of 6,800 pounds, but other than that, you still get the same V6-powered, front-wheel-drive layout and the bare necessities that go along with it to make the van usable on a daily basis.

Pros and Cons

  • Solid payload capacity
  • Tight turning circle
  • Big towing capacity
  • Good visibility
  • Lots of configurations on offer
  • Not a lot of tech onboard
  • What driver aids?
  • Rough ride
  • Seats not included

Engine and Transmission

You won't find a turbocharged performance engine in this or any other review of the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van; instead, you get a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter 6-cylinder motor producing 280 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque on regular gas. The V6's power is sent to the front wheels via a traditional 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine offers decent pull, even when fully loaded, but on slippery uphills, the front-wheel drivetrain counts against the ProMaster. The maximum towing capacity on the 2500 is 6,480 lbs, while the 3500 Extended will haul 6,410 lbs.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van a good van?

Judging whether a van is good or not is slightly easier than determining which is the best supercar of all time. Can it hold a bunch of stuff? Is it powerful enough? Yes? Cool. The 2020 ProMaster Window Van is as basic as they come and provides a very clear-cut service. It's excellent at hauling many people (if you get some third-party seats installed) and offers a good amount of cargo space behind the front seats, but is otherwise a cargo van with windows. The 3.6-liter V6 engine will last hundreds of thousands of miles if you look after it, is relatively light on fuel, and provides ample power and great towing capacities. The transmission is smooth and the turning circle tight. Unfortunately, the ride is a bit harsh, and the lack of safety tech is concerning, but at this price point, and in this corner of the market, that is to be expected. It's an honest, hard-working van and is definitely worth a look. Just remember to budget for seats.

🚗What 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van Model Should I Buy?

Ram gives you a clean slate to work from, and each ProMaster Window Van will have a slightly different setup to the last: that's what makes it so great. The only real choice you have to make is whether you want to go for the base 2500 or the 3500. We would suggest going with the cheapest model, the 2500. This trim still offers the same engine and excellent towing capacity and comes standard with a set of 16-inch silver-painted steel wheels, manually adjustable and manual folding wing mirrors, and a Uconnect 3 multimedia system with Bluetooth streaming. What more could the merch guy in your band ever need? For this specification, the price of the 2020 Ram ProMaster Window Van is a measly $36,995 in the USA - excluding seats.
