Those who plan on getting a 2019 conversion van will notice some changes from conversion vans based on earlier model years thanks to updates to the 2019 RAM ProMaster that these vans are based on.
One of the biggest changes for the 2019 RAM ProMaster is the fact that there are more models available than before. In the past, there was just a single ProMaster van along with the ProMaster City. Now, however, you can get one of three new models. These include a ProMaster 2500 Cargo Van featuring a low roof plus a ProMaster 3500 Cargo Van with a high or a low roof. All three of those new configurations have 136-inch wheelbases. Time will tell if these new ProMaster 2500 and 3500 Cargo Vans are also used for conversions or if the other RAM ProMaster will remain the go-to option.
Those who plan on using their 2019 conversion van for hauling will appreciate that the latest version of the RAM ProMaster has a larger towing and payload capacity than it did previously. With the 1500 version, you can now haul as much as 4,000 pounds. The 2500 variation increases this to 4,230 pounds, and the 3500 version has a 4,680-pound maximum rating. Overall, the towing capability increased by 30 percent, now offering as much as 6,800 pounds. You can also now get a Class IV receiver hitch featuring a 7- and 4-pin wiring harness.
The 2019 RAM ProMaster also has some cosmetic differences that should carry through to most conversions as well. There is a new grille, and models with a high roof can get polycarbonate side rear windows. Those with low roofs can get side rear windows featuring steel grates.
Keep your eyes peeled to see how these updates to the 2019 RAM ProMaster translate to the 2019 conversion vans.
