All 3500s offer 30% more towing capability, as well as options for fleet telematics with driver tracking/behavior and vehicle diagnostics, interior LED lighting, and available rear side windows on all models. Ram will also offer a 136-in wheelbase version of the 3500 with both low- and high-roof configurations, but all of the new features and configurations are coming later in the year.

We would go with the 2019 Ram ProMaster, as well as an option or two like the sliding doors and cruise control. Knowing that a low-roof, shorter wheelbase choice is on the way, we would opt for that unless we really needed the maximum cargo space. Find a Ram ProMaster for sale
Unlike most traditional models, the 2019 Ram ProMaster 3500 doesn't offer trim levels. Instead, it comes in two available sizes -- standard length and extended -- both of which feature a high-roof body style for extra storage. A low-roof version of the 3500 on a shorter wheelbase is coming later this year.
Priced from $39,090, including the $1,695 factory shipping charge, each ProMaster 3500 starts off about the same. Standard features include 16-in steel wheels, air conditioning, keyless entry, power windows and locks, a backup camera, and Uconnect 3 with a 5-in display, Bluetooth, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Regardless of which ProMaster 3500 model you choose, you'll get a 159-in wheelbase, though extended models offer a longer body that includes a little extra cargo room behind the rear wheels.
The ProMaster is also offered with a wide range of options. They include a navigation system, heated seats, sliding side doors, rear parking sensors, cruise control, a chrome grille and alloy wheels.

2019 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.
2019 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.
2019 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.
