RAM Pro Master vs Ford Transit


The 2016 RAM ProMaster and the 2016 Ford Transit are both excellent vehicles for your business needs. Coming from reliable brands that offer the upfits you may need to tailor your vehicle to your needs, the two seem quite comparable. But in a head-to-head vehicle comparison, how do they really line up? Let's take a closer look.

Body Styles Available

If you're looking strictly for a van, then either the 2016 Ram ProMaster or the 2016 Ford Transit will work for your needs. However, if you're looking for a more tailored vehicle, then you may want to consider the ProMaster, which comes in four different body styles: van, cab, cutaway, and window van. So whether you're looking for a vehicle for your business or for a large family, the ProMaster can work for you. On the other hand, the Transit only comes in longer versions of the same vehicle.

Price and Value

In terms of price, both vehicles have an affordable starting point. But the starting MSRP of the 2016 Ram ProMaster is a bit lower than that of the Ford Transit, so if budget is your main concern, the ProMaster may be a better option.

Both vehicles are available with a standard engine and a diesel engine, but the engines in the Ford vehicle seem larger. Upon a test drive, it would seem this extra size doesn't translate into extra power, and the 2016 Ford Transit actually feels quite heavy when driving.

On the other hand, the Ram ProMaster, while still large, is easier to navigate in tight city spaces as well in Manchester, Merrimack, and Nashua.

Customization Availability

While both vehicles can be tailored to your specific business needs, when looking at the actual options, the Transit feels a bit lacking. Perhaps it's the limited body styles available, but the Transit is simply a kind of cargo van but larger.

On the other hand, as an accomplished manufacturer of work vehicles, the makers of the Ram ProMaster designed the entire vehicle with your work needs in mind. The vehicle is easy to upfit for any job requirements and is affordable to do so.
