2013 Ram Cargo Van vs. 2013 Ford Transit Connect

Business owners in the Swift Current area know how important the purchase of a utility vehicle is to their company. When you need a cargo van to get your people and materials where they need to be, you want a van that is safe, reliable, and has plenty of space so you can get the job done. The 2013 Ram Cargo Van has arrived at Jackson Dodge in Medicine Hat, AB and it has plenty to offer for individuals and businesses that need to move heavy shipments. In this relatively small segment there aren’t a lot of vehicles to choose from, but the 2013 Ford Transit is another full-size cargo van that buyers will want to consider, as it also has capable performance and helpful features. To help you make an informed decision, we’ve put together a comparison of the 2013 Ram Cargo Van and the 2013 Ford Transit.

When you and your team need to get to your next destination, the Ram Cargo Van’s 283 kW V6 engine will do a much better job than the Ford Transit Connect’s 136 kW inline-4.
