Having strong engine performance is a top priority and the 2021 Ram ProMaster from St. Paul Dodge in Alberta certainly delivers.

The 2021 ProMaster comes standard with a robust 3.6L V6 gasoline engine that routes 280 hp through a six-speed automatic transmission, which is considered best-in-class power. This cargo van is also unique since it uses a front-wheel drivetrain, which can provide better handling on snowy inclines and icy streets when compared to rear-wheel-drive cargo vans. Towing capacity in the Ram is equally stout with an estimated 3,134 kg when properly equipped.

The 2021 Ford Transit, on the other hand, is fitted with a smaller 3.5L V6 that throws only 275 hp. This model is equipped with standard rear-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic transmission. Conventional towing on the 2021 Transit is less than what you’d find with the 2021 ProMaster. The Ford cargo van delivers an estimated 2,312 kg in its base level form.

But it also promises versatility.

When compared to its main rival, the 2021 Nissan NV Cargo Van, the ProMaster can accommodate more freight with its three wheelbase options, including a 300-cm short, 345-cm regular and 404-cm long wheelbase. The 2021 NV Cargo Van, on the other hand, only offers one wheelbase that measures 371 cm.

The Ram is the vehicle of choice for commercial fleets that need every cubic metre of space for cargo and equipment. In its most compact form, the 2021 ProMaster 1500 (with the short wheelbase and standard roof) swallows up 7,340 L of volume. Stepping up to the high roof model, which comes with the regular wheelbase, increases capacity to 9,993 L. To achieve the most cargo-carrying versatility, the 2021 ProMaster 3500 (with the available extended body, long wheelbase and high roof) defies convention with 13,107 L volume. 

The 2021 NV simply cannot compare. With the standard roof, fleets gain 6,628 L of capacity, while the high roof model only provides a maximum of 9,149 L.

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.

Consider the 2021 Ram ProMaster from St. Paul Dodge. Unlike its competition – the Nissan NV Cargo Van – the Ram offers essential driver aids to help your crew feel confident when behind the wheel.

All models of the 2021 ProMaster offer available blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, which uses dual wide-band radar sensors to scan the blind-spot zones behind the cargo van to help ensure safe manoeuvring. Forward collision warning is also available on all ProMaster platforms. This system provides both audible and visual warnings to alert the driver when it detects a potential frontal collision. If the driver doesn’t react in time, the system will step in to mitigate a possible collision.

The 2021 ProMaster also comes standard with Crosswind Assist. This driver-assist uses sensors to detect forces from sudden gusts and applies braking action to certain wheels to counteract the impact of the squalls. Windy conditions are no match for this cargo van.

The Nissan NV Cargo Van, in comparison, doesn’t offer blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning or wind mitigation technologies in its fleet of commercial vehicles. The only driver assists you can expect to find in the Nissan variant are a rearview camera and rear sonar – both of which are also offered by the 2021 Ram ProMaster.

To learn about how the 2021 ProMaster stacks up against the competition, contact our team at St. Paul Dodge in AB for full details.
