Towing Capability

Not only can your cargo van store gear, it can also tow additional equipment that might be too large to fit inside. This added strength means you’ll have more flexibility as you set out to a worksite, knowing you have everything you need.

Both the Ram ProMaster and the Ford Transit are able to tow plenty of gear. When properly equipped, the Ford Transit offers a maximum towing capacity of 6,900 pounds, while the Ram ProMaster edges it out ever so slightly at 6,910 pounds.

The ProMaster also takes the edge when looking at payload capacities. If you compare the two cargo vans at their base levels, the Transit delivers a decent amount of payload at 3,668 pounds, but the ProMaster takes it further with a payload of 4,010 pounds.

Technology on the Go

As you cruise around to worksites with your cargo in tow, you’ll enjoy access to different technology systems. The Ram ProMaster and the Ford Transit provide a wide variety of added entertainment and safety.

Both models, for example, come with touchscreens up front. The Ram Cargo Van provides a standard 7-inch screen, while the Ford van has a smaller 4-inch display. You’ll be able to connect to fun apps including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto as well as play music through SiriusXM®.

Both cargo vans also offer available built-in navigation systems as you make long journeys to new sites. The Ram ProMaster includes Drowsy Driver Detection for those especially long commutes, letting you know when you may need to take a break for your safety and the safety of others. 

Yet another helpful technology feature of the Ram ProMaster is the available wireless phone charger, which the Ford Transit doesn’t offer. Your device ensures you can stay connected in order to find directions or get in touch with a client, so it’s important to keep it powered. With the Ram ProMaster, you’ll more easily be able to do so.
