Small Business Workhorse: The 2013 Ram C/V Tradesman®


Hard work never goes out of style, and the 2013 Ram C/V Tradesman® never stops working for small business owners. In the midst of the much-deserved fanfare surrounding the new 2014 Ram ProMaster, it’s important to remember that the Ram C/V Tradesman remains a workhorse through and through.

For carpenters and handymen, for caterers and florists, the 2013 Ram C/V Tradesman offers the perfect combination of capability and durability at an affordable price. The Ram C/V Tradesman’s structural aluminum load floor is large enough for 4×8 materials, stacked flat, and a best-in-class 155.5 cubic feet of cargo space provides ample storage room for tools of the trade, as well as deliveries. Plus, in-floor storage bins help you stay organized throughout the busy workday.

Small business owners will appreciate the low total cost of ownership. When your vehicle is a business expense, the 3.6L Pentastar® engine’s extended maintenance cycle and best-in-class fuel range (up to 500 highway miles on a 20-gallon tank) will make your bottom line a little less daunting. Not to mention, the Ram C/V Tradesman will be reliable for years to come—it’s been built with hard work in mind and has been put through rigorous tests. And for extra peace of mind, there’s this: a best-in-class 5-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty.
