Did You Know This About Dodge Vans?
The 1971 model of full-size vans was built first on the B platform when production began. Chrysler utilized the AB platform later. A "Uniframe" design, which required only one weld, made the Dodge platform stronger and lighter. The featured cargo floor is lower than that of the competition. (Noise, vibration, and harshness levels have been compromised.) Competing products do not handle as well as these vans. The lower center of gravity made handling easier. During its 1970's financial difficulties, the Chrysler Corporation egressed from the B-series van. The cab-over motorhome conversion was part of the B-series' popularity at the time.
The construction of all B-series vans features is very similar. From era to era, slight variation has occurred. Bumpers, grille, hood, and front fenders underwent the most change. Changes were analogous to the full-size truck counterparts of each era. Federal “crashworthiness” standards dictate many changes. A fixed panel was between the front and side door on the passenger’s side. The side door mount was placed back several inches. Less interference with the front passenger seat was allowed because there was more side door access. In 1978, a transitional year for B-series vans, the panel was eliminated. During the 32 years of production, service companies, upbuilders, and other fleets found the Dodge Van to be very popular. From year to year, compatible installable options did not require redesign.
The first 15-passenger van, favored by church and school groups, was pioneered by Dodge. It was also popular in ambulance and class-C RV conversions. The company dominated the market until Ford took over during the 1990s. Unique features included a sliding side door and a side-swinging tail door having a full-width window.
Eventually, Chrysler was able to overtake the passenger wagon market when it pioneered the minivan. European-style models, that were more fuel efficient, replaced full-sized American-style vans. The Sprinters was the first model produced.

An optional 5.2 L engine, that utilized Compressed Natural Gas, came with certain model years. A full tank of gas had a range up to 300 miles (480 km). In 1999, Ram Vans that were CNG-powered were classified Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicles.
Of the four top makers of full-size vans, Dodge was last to market a passenger wagon and short-wheelbase van. The shortest full-size vans of the other Big Three makers disappeared from the market in the early 1990s.
The M-B-based Dodge Sprinter replaced Daimler Chrysler’s discontinued production of the Ram Wagon and Ram Van after 2003 models came
