Why You Should Choose a Ram Commercial Vehicle Over Other Brands

When you think Ram, you think tough. This connotation will carry over when you begin browsing the Ram ProMaster cargo vans and heavy-duty Ram trucks. The Ram-offered collection goes straight to the heart of what you may need for a professional or personal endeavor. Ram doesn't cloud its commercial lineup with dozens of models that can make finding what you need distracting and overwhelming. Instead, it offers a handful of models that all bring a diligent work ethic to the task ahead.

One of Ram's biggest competitors is Ford. Both brands have a commercial inventory for New York drivers to explore, and you may have already spent some time investigating both options to seek out the work truck or cargo van that fits your business needs. Here in Kingston, we want our customers to do their research, and we want to lend a hand, so each driver comes out of the search confident that they've found the commercial model that will best assist them in future jobs. To help you achieve this goal, we want to provide you with a couple of areas where Ram may fit your commercial needs better than Ford.

 

The Differences Between the Ram and Ford Commercial Lines

There are three areas of commercial inventory that we'll be comparing between what Ram and Ford offer. The first is cargo vans, then work trucks and ending with chassis cabs. As with all our inventory at L.T. Begnal Motors, you can see what's in stock and review the details that can help shape your decision like the color, fuel type, drivetrain, transmission, engine, and other key features. If any of the commercial vehicles you look at strike you as a potential fit for your business, call or message us online and we can schedule a time to discuss your needs.

Comparing Professional Cargo Vans

  • Ram presents two cargo vans in its commercial lineup. With different exterior appearances, the slimmer Ram ProMaster City® is appealing to passengers and businesses alike, while the Ram ProMaster®, with its higher roof asset, is geared strictly toward on-the-go professional needs. From fuel economy to horsepower, there is more than one way these two van models rise above the competing Ford Transit and Transit Connect vans. 
  • The two-passenger Ram ProMaster® comes with a highly-reliable 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, 5,100-pound towing capacity and 4,680-pound payload. Its 280 horsepower is more than the standard horsepower that comes on the 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 powertrain in the Ford Transit. Plus, its front-wheel drive provides more consistent traction and lessens vehicle weight than the rear-wheel-drive Ford model.  
  • The Ram ProMaster City®, on the other hand, presents a more versatile feel with a five-seat layout that allows for 131.7 cubic-feet of max cargo capacity. When compared with the 2019 Ford Transit Connect van, the Ram model gets a better 28 highway mileage count with its 178-horsepower 2.4-liter TigerShark MultiAir 2 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission.

Comparing Over-Achieving Work Trucks

  • The Ram work truck side of the commercial lineup is flushed out with the Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 models that include the presence of the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel powertrain that cranks out an incredible 930 pound-feet of torque to tow up to 31,210 pounds. Bonus - this engine style only requires an oil change every 15,000 miles, so you can keep working hard without interruptions. 
  • There is also Ram's well-known 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine that delivers an amazing 410 horsepower to give your towing capabilities an extra boost that tops what you can expect from the 6.2-liter Flex-Fuel V8 in the Ford lineup. Between HEMI® and Cummins®, there's nothing you can't do with Ram. 
  • With Ram's 3500 model, you will experience the convenience of towing up to 30,000 pounds with its fifth-wheel towing that is a best-in-class standard higher than Ford's 27,500-pound rating. In addition to excellent towing standards, you won't be able to say no the power of braking and suspension with Ram's smart exhaust brake and rear auto-level air suspension to keep you steady and properly-aligned with the load you're hauling.

Comparing Massive Chassis Cab Models

Both lineups include a chassis cab for your flexible hitching and loading needs. Ram offers the 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs to those seeking them out around the Kingston area. All the models come with the dependable 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine that is always a work pleaser. 

Then to make things even better customers can select the standalone 6.7-liter Cummins® that works wonders in every truck that stores it under the hood. While Ford always offers more than one powertrain, the stats can't measure up to the promise of dependability by both of Ram's engines.
