The ProMaster 1500 is a commercial cargo van with a maximum cargo/towing capacity of 353 cubic feet/5,100 pounds. It competes with the Ford Transit Van XL, Chevy Express 1500, Nissan NV 1500, and GMC Savana 1500.
The ProMaster 1500 van comes in three configurations: a low roof version with a standard 118-inch wheelbase, a low roof with an extended 136-inch wheelbase, and a high roof with the 136-inch wheelbase.
Overall, the ProMaster 1500 has a simple, boxy exterior with a steep sloping front-end. Standard black bumpers and side moldings surround the van, which help hide dings and scratches that are bound to occur on the job. The van also has a standard sliding, side passenger door and 50/50 split rear doors that swing out 260 degrees for easy loading and unloading. A sliding door at the driver’s side, side windows, and rear windows are available as well. Other optional features include a silver grille, foglights, a rear window defroster, power/heated side mirrors, a trailer hitch receiver, privacy glass tint, and daytime running lamps.
Powering the ProMaster 1500 is a standard 280-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine paired a 6-speed automatic transmission. A 174-hp, diesel 3.0-liter 4-cylinder paired with a 6-speed clutchless manual transmission is also available.
Inside, the Promaster 1500 features an ergonomic cockpit with optional swivel seats for quick entry. For those needing an alternative power source, in-dash 20-amp auxiliary switches and a second rear-cabin battery are available. Optional tie-down rings on the side walls and floor help ensure that cargo is held down securely. A telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, power windows/locks, and remote keyless entry come standard. The available Uconnect multimedia system includes a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, an integrated navigation system, satellite radio, and Uconnect mobile app suite. Other available features include an adjustable suspension seat, heated front seats, bench seating, an entertainment system, a rear HVAC system, and cruise control.
Standard safety features include front airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, a backup camera, and rear park assist. A protective partition between the front passengers and rear cargo is also available.
