2014 RAM Cargo review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Sharing the same platform and powertrain as the consumer-oriented Dodge Grand Caravan minivan, the two-seat Ram Cargo Van is designed for commercial use. The van has an aluminum rear load floor, and solid panels take the place of glass windows in many instances. Buyers can also choose an optional floor that provides access to storage bins below the surface. The van competes against the Ford Transit Connect and Nissan NV200.

Great used vehicle

Just what I need to transport bigger items from Home Depot to home. I'm a DIY person, that's my idea of fun.

Bike Hauler

I use my C/V for a bicycle hauler, its great, alarm system means my expensive bikes are safer then in the house. Lots of room for bikes and gear, I also use it to haul stuff around for yard work, Mine is arrest me red, I put on black/alum American mag wheels, get compliments everyday. Fuel mileage is very good. Ride is good. I drove the Transit Connect before buying the C/V, not even close in comfort, getting on the freeway, floor space, 283 hp is amazing.

you owe it to yourself

If any one is considering a Ford Transit or Nissan NV you want to compare it to a Ram CV(cargo van). Yes it looks identical to a Caravan/grand caravan. Transit can have 6ft ladder-CV 8ft, the NV, 40 inch pallet between wheel wells-CV 4'x8' flat on the aluminum deck (behind two front seats). The roof is also lower at 5'9" (parking). standard 6cyl oil cooler and trans cooler, holds more weight and can tow. No comparison comes close if you have to carry weight and city parking garage(it is as long as a minivan.)
