2016 RAM ProMaster 1500 vs. 2015 RAM ProMaster 3500 Review

Comparison Review

As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the RAM ProMaster 1500 and the RAM ProMaster 3500.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the RAM ProMaster 1500 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the RAM ProMaster 3500. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the RAM ProMaster 1500 is much higher than that for the RAM ProMaster 3500.

The RAM ProMaster 1500 is about the same width as the RAM ProMaster 3500. If you go with the RAM ProMaster 1500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM ProMaster 3500.

With similar torque, the RAM ProMaster 1500 and the RAM ProMaster 3500 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The RAM ProMaster 1500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the RAM ProMaster 3500, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

If you've got something you need to pull, the RAM ProMaster 1500 will do just as well as the RAM ProMaster 3500, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the RAM ProMaster 1500 and the RAM ProMaster 3500.
