Anyone that owns a business which requires moving a lot of tools or goods understands that finding the right cargo van is vital. You need the right equipment for the job, and thanks to the amazing cargo van segment, we're positive you'll find the perfect cargo van. Two of the top options include the 2019 Ram ProMaster and the 2019 Ford Transit. We'll be comparing these two options to make sure that you pick the one that best suits your life and your business. To start things off, the 2019 ProMaster has increased the payload and towing capacities, updated the front-end, and offers three new variants. On the other side, the 2019 Transit offers new seating layouts, new hinges on the long-wheelbase model, and a few changes to the feature availability. So far it's a close race, so keep reading down below to find out which cargo van comes out on top!

2019 Ram ProMaster Power & Handling

One of the biggest perks of checking out the Ram ProMaster is the standard engine! This Pentastar engine can be found with the best of Ram's vehicles, and it offers the kind of power necessary to keep your business moving. This engine is a 3.6-liter V6, which can not only crank out 280 horsepower, it can also produce around 260 pound-feet of torque. Along with this power, this engine also gets a 6-speed automatic transmission. Not only does the transmission work hard in power the front wheels, but it also makes sure that each gear shift is smooth. No one wants a transmission that feels like it is constantly hunting for the right gear, especially if you're using it for work purposes.

2019 Ford Transit Power & Handling

The standard engine that comes with the 2019 Transit is a 3.7-liter V6. This V6 engine produces around 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine works alongside a six-speed automatic transmission to help further enhance it. There are other engines you can opt for instead, like a 3.2-liter inline-5 diesel and a 3.5-liter V6 option. The diesel engine can pump out up to 350 lb-ft of torque and 185 horsepower, while the 3.5-liter engine produces 310 hp and 400 pound-feet of torque. While Transit comes with more engine options, nothing beats the reliability of the Pentastar.

Not only can you find the ProMaster in three variants (1500, 2500, and 3500), but you'll also get a long list of standard features.
