The 2021 Ram ProMaster is the first FCA model to feature this innovative technology.
Amid all the swanky supercars and sports cars breaking cover online instead of at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show such as the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, Koenigsegg Gemera, and 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that Ram also unveiled a new Snow Plow Prep package for the Ram 1500 this week. Essentially, it's Ram's answer to the 2020 Ford Super Duty Snow Plow Prep Package.
Now, Ram Commercial has revealed the 2021 Ram ProMaster at The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis designed for businesses, construction job sites, and commercial fleets.
"Ram Commercial was formed in 2014, and our full-size van customers have enjoyed Ram's benchmark durability ever since," said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. "Ram Commercial continues to focus solely on trucks and commercial vehicles, allowing us to deliver confidence for hard-working people every day, no matter their line of work."
For the 2021 model year, a class-exclusive digital rearview mirror is available as an option for all ProMaster models, which replaces the traditional rearview mirror with a 9.2-inch wide LCD monitor to enhance safety and prevent accidents. This is the first time this technology has been offered on a Fiat Chrysler vehicle. Video is displayed in real-time from a rear-facing camera and can be turned off to revert back to a traditional mirror.
Standard equipment on all 2021 Ram ProMaster models now includes a Crosswind Assist that helps keep the van stable during, while newly available safety options include blind spot with cross path detection, forward collision warning with emergency brake assist and ambient/courtesy lights.
Available in 18 different wheelbase and roof height configurations, the 2021 Ram ProMaster is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. All ProMaster models come with a front-wheel-drive system. Pricing for the 2021 Ram ProMaster pricing will be announced closer to the vans on-sale date later this summer. Given the new standard tech, we're expecting the 2021 Ram ProMaster to get a price increase.
