Could one streamline your work assignments and make them easier around Fenton and Grand Blanc, Michigan? Review the information below, gathered by LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Fenton, and then make your decision.
Ram ProMaster vs Ford Transit: Storage
When you go with the Ram ProMaster, you can tow a maximum of 6,910 pounds when properly equipped, while the Ford Transit comes close at 6,900 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped.
To store your packages and other equipment, the cargo width you’ll find in the ProMaster spans 75.6 inches. With the Ford, it’s not as wide at 54.8 inches. If you want versatility in loading up, the Ram provides available dual sliding side doors that can open up according to the different loads you want to access or store. One optional power-sliding door comes in the Ford.
Customizing your van to accommodate your industry needs brings it all together. The Ram supplies several available upfits that include delivery/catering, agriculture, HVAC, plumbing, telecom, construction, and electrical, so you get the right fittings for your van and business. In the Ford, it does not categorize the upfits in terms of industry, so you may get what you need, but then again, you may not.
Ram ProMaster vs Ford Transit: Technology
Both vans supply you with a Telematics system that lets you monitor your fleet of vehicles to ramp up efficiency. This helps you to know how your drivers may be faring on the roads and troubleshoot if your team may need a boost in their efficiency.
View your apps on the Ram’s 5-inch Uconnect® 3 touchscreen, and you can make hands-free calls with Bluetooth® and use the Integrated Voice Command to call out requests. The Ford does have this capability, but the standard Multi-Function Display only spans four inches.
Ram ProMaster vs Ford Transit: Capability
You’ll find similar engines under the hood of both vans. The Ram uses a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that produces a best-in-class 280 horsepower with 250 lb-ft of torque. If you choose the Ford, it gives you a 3.5L PFDi V6 engine that produces 275 horsepower with 262 lb-ft of torque.
Either one can provide the pep you need, but the ProMaster has a class-exclusive front-wheel drive system. If you prefer rear-wheel drive, go with the Transit.
Ram ProMaster vs Ford Transit: Safety
For both vehicles, you can add Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection to keep an eye on those hard-to-see areas. This helps you concentrate on getting to where you’re going and get alerts when you need to watch out for those less-visible locations.
You’ll get an upgraded and class-exclusive Digital Rearview Mirror display in the Ram ProMaster. It does double duty in that it works as a reflective mirror, but can also project a real-time video stream if you want. Ford only supplies a standard rearview mirror.
