5189lbs on cutaway and 4417 on cargo van!


12500lbs GCWR!

The 2014 ProMaster is available in two roof heights, three wheelbases, and four body lengths. Additionally, the ProMaster offers both a chassis cab and cutaway from the factory. Its unibody frame architecture makes it significantly lighter than the competition. As a result, the ProMaster boasts an impressive best-in-class payload capacity up to 5,145 pounds and a maximum towing capacity up to 5,100 pounds. The gross combined weight rating (GCWR) for the 3.6-liter V-6 is 11,500 pounds and 12,500 pounds for the 3.0-liter I-4 EcoDiesel. A unibody structural has additional advantages, including stability and strength from front to rear, a reinforced plenum area for optimized engine packaging, and "truer" tuning of chassis systems and related hardware when compared to more common body-on-frame applications.

up to 5100LBS payload should hopefully be good enough for people who buy a commercial vehicle like the ProMaster, but 5100 LBS can happen quickly. Just a trailer can weigh a lot, only giving you a few thousand at max to work with.

Do you know how well the ProMaster's competition do with towing capacity?
