Ram Commercial has introduced the 2022 Ram ProMaster, a Class 2 full-size van designed for businesses, construction job sites and commercial fleets.
The 2022 Ram ProMaster will be available on dealer lots in the fourth quarter of 2021.
“Ram ProMaster continues to evolve as we listen and respond to customer input, and delivers an unmatched combination of advanced connectivity, interior comfort, refinement and safety features,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer, Stellantis.
Ram Commercial will introduce a battery-electric ProMaster in 2023 in response to customer demand. More information will be available at a later date.
V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission
The 2022 Ram ProMaster features the next generation of the 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine and is now paired to a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission.
This combination generates 280 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque while improving estimated fuel economy up to 9% when compared to the previous powertrain combination.
The 948TE 9-speed automatic transmission is the first of its kind in the Class 2 full-size van segment.
ProMaster’s new electric rack-and-pinion power steering system achieves a best-in-class turning diameter of 11 metres (36.3 feet), reduces maintenance, and only draws power from the vehicle when needed, enabling the engine to be more fuel-efficient.
For 2022, ProMaster includes the most safety features ever offered on Ram’s full-size commercial van with safety features like:
- Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning,
- Crosswind Assist,
- Rear back up camera with dynamic gridlines,
- Post-collision braking,
- Drowsiness Detection,
- Traffic Sign Recognition,
- 360-degree Surround View camera
- Digital rearview mirror
Optional safety features include Intelligent Speed Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Information, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Active Drive Assist system, front parking sensors, auto high-beams and cornering function fog lamps and rain-sensitive windshield wipers.
The 2022 Ram ProMaster is available with class-exclusive Active Driving Assist (L2 class) for hands-on-wheel and eyes-on-road automated driving using lane centring with adaptive cruise control. The system uses multiple sensors, including radars and cameras, to dictate appropriate roads for the technology.

The Ram ProMaster Crew Van is specifically tailored to meet the needs of customers transporting people and cargo at the same time.

The 2022 Ram ProMaster can be up-fitted for virtually every conceivable commercial need because of a unique front-drive system, body-integral construction and the multiple configurations offered.
