As you look at the new conversion vans that are available in 2019, you will notice plenty of familiar conversions and some notable updates. Between the range of van makes and the conversion van companies, there is something for everyone, regardless of your needs.
New Conversion Van Makes
One of the most popular vans for conversions is the RAM ProMaster, which serves as the base of many conversion vans across the country. The RAM ProMaster has class-exclusive front-wheel drive for responsive handling, vertical walls that are nearly 90 degrees, and a best-in-class standard cargo height of 65.4 inches, more than enough room. There are also two exterior heights, four lengths, and three wheelbases available for the RAM ProMaster.
Another incredibly popular choice for a conversion van is the GMC Savanna, which was created to transport people and haul cargo of all sizes. StabiliTrak stability control ensures you always stay in control. There also are three engines to choose from, including a V8 with two fuel choices. The standard engine delivers 276 horsepower. The van also has Automatic Grade Braking and Tap-Up/Tap-Down Driver Shift Control.
The Ford Transit is still a solid option for conversion vans in 2019. The Ford Transit was actually designed with upfits in mind, making it simple for conversion van companies to customize it to meet a range of needs. The standout features include the available power inverter, high-capacity upfitter switches, and Lane-Keeping Alert with Driver Alert. There are also three powerful engines to choose from, including a diesel. In addition, it offers connectivity and infotainment via SYNC 3. It even features Ford Telematics and Connected Data Services.
The conversion van option from Chevrolet is the Express, another auto with a strong reputation. The Chevy Express has a full-frame design with a proven record, lots of cargo room, the latest available technology, and a powerful engine. There is a maximum gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 16,000 pounds, and the latest versions can also include 4G LTE Wi-Fi. There are regular versions as well as those with extended wheelbases, offering a plethora of conversion options, whether you go with the 2500 Express or the 3500 Express as the base for your conversion. Factor in the safety features, such as forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and side blind zone alert, and you are set.
This luxury automaker also makes great vans that are ready for conversions. Both the Mercedes Sprinter and the Metris are excellent choices. The Sprinter now has the choice of using regular gasoline, is highly customizable, and uses the latest technology. The Sprinter Mercedes-Benz User Experience with a touchscreen will help you stay connected and navigate. It can also include a 360-degree camera, active brake assist, and blind spot assist. The Metris has a similar focus on safety, with standard features that include Crosswind Assist, Attention Assist, and the Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program.
