2021 Ram ProMaster Ensures V6 Power in Elk Point

May 23,2022

With the release of the 2021 Ram ProMaster at St Paul Dodge, Alberta fleets and small business owners receive more than cargo space and interior versatility. They also achieve superior engine performance with a standard V6. The same can't be said for the ProMaster's competition. With the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Alberta commercial operators have to settle for a four-cylinder engine, which feels underpowered for the vehicle's large size. Here is a closer look at the standard powertrains found on the 2021 Ram ProMaster and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: 2021 Ram ProMaster 3.6-litre V6 gasoline engine   280 horsepower 260 lb-ft of torque Six-speed automatic transmission   Front-wheel drive 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter   Turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine 188 horsepower   258 lb-ft of torque Nine-speed automatic transmission Rear-wheel drive When it comes to get-up-and-go, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter simply doesn't have enough horsepower to get this cargo van moving with any authority, especially when filled with a heavy load or travelling up a steep grade. The 2021 Ram ProMaster, on the other hand, has the guts needed to accelerate onto the highway, pass other vehicles and maneuver with ease. Best of all, you don't have to climb the ProMaster's trims (and price) to benefit from the 3.6-litre V6. This powerplant comes standard across all 2021 models.
