Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

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.
