If you’re looking for a work vehicle that’s perfect for your city business, some major automakers are starting to really up the ante in terms of what’s offered. Two to keep and eye are Ram and Ford, each known for its great capacity and reliability. What happens when we compare the latest models of these capable cargo and passenger vans? Today it’s the Ram Promaster City vs Ford Transit Connect. Which one’s got more of what your business needs? Take a look.
One thing we like to look at right away is how well-covered you are in the case of a mechanical malfunction. Ford offers a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty, which is certainly generous and on par with industry standards, but with the amount of daily driving that these vans take on it can make those miles seem to go by pretty fast. Ram’s coverage on the Promaster City extends for up to 100,000 miles, which many business owners will appreciate.
The 2015 Ram Promaster City, new for 2015 competes well against the established Transit Connect. Offering more in the way of maximum payload, capability, and an advanced transmission, the Promaster City appears poised to take on some of the top sellers in the cargo van segment and perform admirably.
