Not a whole lot changes with these vans year-over-year. For 2020, the ProMaster can be had with a factory-installed trailer hitch offering a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,800 pounds. Additionally, a trio of new 136-in wheelbase Cargo Van models enter the fray in 2500 standard roof, 3500 standard roof and 3500 high roof configurations.

The ProMaster is a great alternative to the RWD full-size vans offered by Ford and Mercedes-Benz. It's nearly as capable as either of those options despite riding on a FWD platform, which makes it more maneuverable in tight spaces while being less of a liability in inclimate weather. It also offers a lower base price than either of the other full-size options, undercutting the Sprinter and Transit by a few thousand dollars. We can't really recommend a specific configuration here, as different buyers will have different needs. Altogether though, if you're looking for a basic reliable cargo van and don't need the extra features and added capability of the Sprinter or Transit, the ProMaster presents a great overall value.

The 2020 ProMaster doesn't offer formal trim levels, but it does offer a variety of configurations based on the following variables. While each one uses the same 3.6-liter V6 engine, buyers can choose from 1500, 2500 and 3500 models. Much like full-size pickups, these numbers indicate the van's capabilities with regard to payload capacities. Your local dealer can likely tell you which one is best for you based on your specific needs.
Additionally, the ProMaster is offered in three different wheelbases: 118-in, 136-in and 159-in.
Finally, in terms of overall body style, the ProMaster can be had in low-roof, high-roof and chassis cab cutaway models.
Overall, a lot of different configurations are available, although certain options drop off as you move to different body styles, e.g., the 118-in wheelbase is only available in low-roof 1500 form while the chassis cab is only available in 3500 configuration.
Standard features include 16-in steel wheels, air conditioning, six airbags, keyless entry, power windows and locks, FCA's Uconnect 3.0 system with a 5-in display, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.
Available options include rear parking sensors, a navigation system, sliding side doors, a backup camera, heated seats, cruise control, rear park assist, Fleet Telematics, VSIM and alloy wheels.

2020 Ford Transit -- The Ford Transit is built in the United States and replaces the ancient Ford E-Series. It offers a very similar experience to the ProMaster -- right down to the strong visibility and flat, low load floor. The Transit is available with additional comfort and safety features not offered on the ProMaster, and all-wheel drive (AWD), which is a new addition for 2020.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- Few vans offer the all-out capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, but it's an expensive van to buy. As such, you may want to consider a used model. And if the Mercedes-Benz name seems too ritzy for your business, remember that it's also sold as a Freightliner. Like the Transit, the Sprinter offers comfort and safety features not available on the ProMaster, in addition to optional all-wheel drive and a diesel engine.
2020 Nissan NV -- Nissan's full-size NV van offers high and low roof configurations and a capable, truck-based chassis. But it's a lot less fuel-efficient than the ProMaster, and it's cumbersome to maneuver.
