Whether you operate a small business out of your home or you manage an entire fleet of commercial vehicles on the road on a daily basis, thereís a trend when it comes to commercial vehicles that makes it easier to get around in crowded cities. This trend is the smaller commercial vans on the market which offer the strength you need and plenty of space but also are more efficient and nimble on the road to make it easy to fit in wherever you need to go. Letís take a look at a few of them:
Ford Transit Connect
The Ford Transit Connect is a versatile van that can be used for cargo or passengers depending upon your business needs. This is the van that drives more like a car or a small pickup truck rather than like the large commercial vans of old. This van offers you the choice of two different four-cylinder engines, a 2.5-liter and a 1.6-liter turbocharged version. The turbo engine will return 25 mpg combined to give you reasonable efficiency and you have the benefit of the Ford programmable MyKey to allow you more control with each key that can be used for this van.
The Transit Connect is nimble on the roads and itís easy to park in small places, making deliveries simple when you have to make several around town. Youíll even enjoy the benefit of the rearview camera that helps you see whatís going on behind you. While this is an impressive little commercial van, its best used for lighter duty work with towing rated at 2,000 pounds, it can handle a variety of configurations to give you the versatility you need and efficient performance on the road.
The Nissan NV200 is a bit different from the rest of the group with no option for a passenger setup. This compact commercial van is the narrowest in the group, but that can play to the advantage as it parks like your compact car when you need to put it in a parking space. With no passenger configuration this van is set up for commercial use with tie down points and a sliding door on each side of the van. Youíll enjoy the efficiency you enjoy from the use of the CVT automatic transmission as well.
When it comes to the capacity of this small van, itís best left to lighter work as the NV200 is without a tow rating and has the lowest payload rating in the class. This FWD van uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which allows for 131 horsepower to help achieve the combined 25 mpg of fuel efficiency. There are durable surfaces throughout this van and it does make uses of a 5.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a rearview camera to make sure you can see whatís going on behind you. This is a van that works well as a mobile office if thatís what you need.
Chevrolet City Express
The Chevrolet City Express is extremely similar to the Nissan in its size and shape as well as the fact that it doesnít offer a passenger version for you. This van has plenty of room for the cargo you want to carry and is an affordable van that offers you an easy to maneuver size that can be parked nearly anywhere.The taller height of the City Express makes it an attractive choice when you can stack things high inside this work van that seems to make its way around corners and through traffic with ease.
The power for this smaller work van is found in a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which is the only engine offered for this van. This provides you 131 horsepower and 139 lb.-ft. of torque, which is enough to get the job done, but doesnít offer much in the way of towing at all. The City Express matches the Ford and Nissan with the 25 combined mpg to make sure you can have the efficiency you need when youíre on the road. When you look at the base model of this work van you find itís a bare bones model that offers you standard item, but you can add more to it with some of the options available.
RAM ProMaster City
The RAM ProMaster City is a choice you can make when youíre looking for the small van thatís built to handle the job. This van is bigger than the Nissan or the Ford, but only slightly and that added size means a pallet can be loaded in the back with ease. Because this van is a bit larger and offers more space the engine is also more powerful and can handle the load of a full pallet of materials with ease. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine produces 178 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque while making used of the nine-speed automatic transmission.
Because itís a slightly larger and more powerful van than the other two smaller models, the fuel mileage does take a slight hit, but itís only one mpg to bring the number to 24 combined mpg on the road. This is a work van that offers you four different configurations, two as a cargo version and two as a passenger version. Youíll be able to haul as many as seven people or set up your workshop in this van. Youíll love the space and the standard Bluetooth connectivity that youíll encounter in this work van.
Overall, the most versatile of these four small work vans is the RAM ProMaster City. It offers you the size you need but not too much of it along with the power to haul and carry whatever you need.
