2014 Ram 2500 ProMaster Cargo Van

By Stephane Babcock
The inside of the ProMaster is cavernous, especially when it's empty. When I clapped my hands after jumping into the driver's seat, the sound reverberated like a bear cave. Settling into the saddle, which keeps you high above traffic after only a minor step up into the van, I was able to easily reach all the bells and whistles

Increased Demand Creates Backlogs at Upfitters

By Mike Antich
One challenge for the 2014-MY has been the increased volume of fleet vehicles going to upfitters, which has resulted in capacity issues. With the increasing demand and growth of the commercial truck/van segments, particularly among utilities and service industries, the percentage of upfitted vehicles is growing. Order-to-delivery time on large trucks keeps getting longer with upfitters. Some fleets don't place factory orders and instead purchase most their vehicle chassis from bailment pools.
