The All-New 2023 Ram ProMaster Features and New Design


Ram’s ProMaster full-size van was starting to show its age, but the all-new 2023 model marches on with a complete redesign from the ground up. The most notable improvements are its updated powertrain, revised exterior design, improved cargo-hauling capability, and a range of tech features. This significantly updated box on wheels represents endless possibilities for both commercial and recreational applications.

Whether you need a cargo hauler, camper van, mobile office, or delivery vehicle, the ProMaster is ready to rise to the challenge. Already popular with small businesses, the ProMaster will become even more attractive to commercial buyers thanks to its impressive payload capacity and a new all-electric model set to debut in 2023. Read below as our team at Chris Nikel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT takes an in-depth look at the features that make the 2023 ProMaster an excellent choice for the cargo van segment.

Powertrain, Transmission, and Performance

Under the hood, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 276 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque powers the 2023 ProMaster. It mates to a nine-speed automatic transmission that routes power to only the front wheels, an improvement on the old six-speed unit, to deliver improved fuel efficiency and a smoother, more refined ride. As previously mentioned, Ram will introduce a fully electric version of the ProMaster with the 2023 model, further improving fuel efficiency, reducing emissions, and giving businesses a zero-emission option for their fleets.

On the performance front, the ProMaster doesn’t disappoint, with a 6,910-pound maximum towing capacity and a payload rating of up to 4,680 pounds. That’s significantly higher than the previous generation. You can take on oversized cargo and heavier loads more confidently. The zero to 60 mph sprint has also improved over the previous model and now takes just 8.1 seconds, which is legitimately fast for a cargo van. Overall, the 2023 Ram ProMaster is a substantial step up over its predecessor and a great choice for anyone looking for a reliable and capable cargo van.

Interior Design

Ram has completely redesigned the interior of the 2023 ProMaster, with a focus on improving ergonomics and cargo-hauling capabilities. The driver’s seat is flattened and moved forward to give you an expansive, wide-angle view of the road. The dash layout is much simpler, and the center console is now bigger, providing plenty of storage space for small items.

The second-row seating can now accommodate up to three people, making it a great choice for hauling a crew. If you need to maximize cargo hauling, you can choose the cargo-hauling interior layout, which features two flat walls with plenty of tie-downs and straps to secure whatever cargo you need to move.

Exterior Design

The 2023 ProMaster incorporates a fresh exterior design, a much-needed improvement from the previous generation model. The refined boxy design has an updated front fascia featuring a larger grille and more modern LED headlights and fog lamps, giving the new ProMaster a more aggressive and stylish look. The new Super High roof configuration also helps to make the new ProMaster stand out from the competition. It offers over 6 feet of cargo height, making it easier to stand up and move around inside the cargo area.

The Black Appearance Package sports a black grille, badges, and bezels, giving the ProMaster an even more menacing look. The new black machined face and silver alloy wheels complete the “black on black” look. You can also choose Ceramic Gray or Spitfire Orange exterior color options for added style. The result is a cargo van that looks as good as it performs.

Infotainment and Connectivity

With technological advances even in the commercial vehicle segment, you need a cargo van that keeps you connected, and the 2023 ProMaster delivers. The standard infotainment system is a 7-inch touch-screen unit with Uconnect 5 software. This setup provides access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM options for those long work trips out of Broken Arrow.

There’s also an even larger optional 10-inch unit if you need a bigger screen. This system allows for over-the-air updates and offers a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot, giving you internet access even on the road. So you can stay connected no matter where your business takes you.

Safety and Driver Assist Technologies

Safety is a top priority in the commercial vehicle segment, and the 2023 ProMaster offers a long list of features that make it one of the safest cargo vans on the market. It has a standard suite of driver assist technologies, such as forward collision warning, drowsiness detection, traffic sign recognition, and crosswind assist. New for 2023 is an optional parallel/perpendicular park assist system to help you park easily. This system can identify a suitable parking space and guide the vehicle into the space with minimal effort.

Also on offer is active drive assist, a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system that combines adaptive cruise control with lane-centering technology to keep the vehicle in its intended lane and at a safe distance from other vehicles. It also offers automatic high beams, so the headlights will switch from low to high beams when it detects oncoming traffic. A 360-degree camera system, a digital rearview mirror, and cornering fog lights are also available to help you see your surroundings more clearly.

With its updated exterior design, comfortable interior, extensive tech features, and driver assistance systems, the 2023 Ram ProMaster is a great choice if you’re looking for a reliable and safe cargo van.
