Built on the all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster chassis, Dave & Matt Vans’ 2023 LVs will further enhance the van living experience for part-time and full-time van lifers alike, with the most standard safety features ever included on a commercial van, a new nine-speed 948TE automatic transmission, a fleet-specific five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and more – all built out with Dave & Matt Vans’ signature utility.

“We’ve always prided ourselves on offering Lifestyle Vehicles that provide exceptional functionality and performance, and this new lineup takes that to the next level,” said Matt Fesler, Chief Marketing Officer of Dave & Matt Vans. “With a broad range of vehicle upgrades, our 2023 LVs are more powerful, more reliable, and ultimately more capable than ever, opening the door to greater adventures, increased versatility, and even better living for our owners. Meanwhile, we’re staying true to the characteristics that have always defined Dave & Matt Vans, continuing to offer some of the most practical and accessible vehicle packages in the industry.”

And with expanded oil change intervals of 10,000 miles, owners can enjoy more play and less maintenance.

Meanwhile, the extensive lineup of premium safety features integrated into the 2023 LVs includes all-speed traction control, electronic stability control, forward collision assist, crosswind assist, drowsy driver detection, electronic roll mitigation, and much more.
