We've seen the photos of it, seen it at auto shows, and the factory in Saltillo, Mexico has started producing it. Now, we have a better idea of what the Ram ProMaster will cost, equipped to buyers' specs. Ram somewhat clandestinely flipped the switch on the ProMaster configurators, in 1500, 2500, and 3500 trims. But don't go looking for them on the Ram Trucks site. There is some information on the ProMaster, but no direct links to the configurator.

As expected, the ProMaster is significantly less expensive than a comparable Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. However, to be fair, it's offered in fewer configurations that Mercedes' tall van. Unlike the Sprinter, the ProMaster will not be offered in a passenger shuttle version from the factory, at least not initially. A passenger shuttle version of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter we recently tested pushed the $60,000 mark.

Although the options offered on the ProMaster configurator may not be the final, official list, we believe they are a good indication of pricing. We were able to outfit a ProMaster 2500 long-wheelbase van with the optional 3.0-liter I-4 EcoDiesel and Uconnect 5-inch touchscreen headunit for around $38,000.
