fwiw, I think RAM should of had ABS as standard on all Promasters, as it does help in snow conditions, and not just panic stops.[/QUOTE]

The ProMaster has ABS as well as ESC.

In Europe the FIAT Ducato ESP (ESP is a Bosch trademark) includes also the LAC (Load Adaptive Control) that evaluates the vehicle's load and the centre of gravity and than adjust the electronic stability control.
ESP package includes also ASR, MSR, hill holder ...
The safety systems are integrated.
Also the MB Sprinter in Europe has similar options.

Since it resorts to an IRS in the 4WD conversion, it's still easy to keep the floor height lower than the RWD competitors with their live axles.

Bring the Dangel Ducato to North America then we would have 3 options if you need a 4x4 van.
At this point choices are Sprinter and Quigley Transit both should be available by December.

I'd like to see how the Dangel system would fare with the transmission options available in America. AFAIK it's only coupled to manual transmissions nowadays. Anyway, since Chrysler already offered AWD in the Grand Caravan once, may not be that hard to figure out how to do it in the ProMaster. But the option for a manual transmission (altough it may be kinda neglected in America) wouldn't be really bad (at least as a passive anti-theft measure )
