When it comes to commercial driving, an updated fleet is an effective fleet. From small business to massive fleet lineups, fuel efficiency, cargo volume and interior height matter.

ProClip is applicable to this year’s most popular fleet vehicles: The Ford Transit, the RAM ProMaster and the Mercedez-Benz Sprinter. We’re here to dish out some statistics about these vehicles, helping you design and redefine your fleet for fuel efficiency, reliability and longevity.

The Ford Transit

The 2018 Ford Transit has a decent cargo capacity of 459.2 cubic feet. Drivers will benefit from the Transit’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, which offers a nice blend of performance and fuel efficiency. The Transit’s six-speed automatic transmission is certainly alluring, as well as its maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds.

The RAM ProMaster

The 2018 RAM ProMaster hits about 460 cubic feet of cargo space. The ProMaster’s biggest benefit is its silent chain timing drive which reduces noise and vibration. Still, its 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine will give drivers the power punch needed for long-haul trips. It can tow approximately 5,100 pounds.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter packs a lot of space, boasting 486.5 cubic feet of cargo space. We feel the Sprinter is best suited to quick, on-premises trips: Its 3.0L V6 turbo diesel engine might be loud, but it’s quick. It can tow approximately 5,000 pounds.

Creating the Ultimate Fleet

At the end of the day, the best fleet vehicle will match your business’s location, daily operations and safety needs. If you need towing power, the Transit might be your best choice—as it also offers a high-end fuel efficiency design.

The ProMaster, meanwhile, is an excellent middle-ground vehicle for quiet operations. The Sprinter is best suited for quick-run businesses, as its diesel engine may not be conducive for long-term passenger travel.
