Roomy passenger van with loads of luxury options.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Dodge B3500 is ideal for carrying passengers with roomy and comfortable inside. In general, it's a reliable vehicle, while the base model features seating for five. The SLT model comes equipped with eight-passenger seating as standard, while the Maxi offers seating for 12, although seating for up to 15 is available. Its main competitor, the Ford Econoline, offers similar performance and capabilities and amenities but at a higher price, which is the primary selling point. While it is slightly less popular, it is much cheaper than its competitors with similar features.

The 1995 Dodge B3500 introduces the new luxury model, the SLT. In addition, power driver’s seat, reading lamps, and CD sound system are now available as options. Hunter Green is also available as a new exterior color this year.

Exterior

The 1995 Dodge B3500 is a large cargo van that has rounded edges and flush door handles for better aerodynamics. It includes 16-inch wheels and chrome bumpers adorn the upgraded models. Standard equipment includes halogen bulb headlights, luxury trim, and opening rear quarter windows. A camper/towing package is available as an option that offers limited slip differential and two-tone paint.

Interior

The 1995 Dodge B3500 varies in its standard interior features between models. Seating for five comes standard on the base model, featuring seating for eight and 12 on the upgraded models. Vinyl bucket seats and AM/FM audio system come standard on the base model with the better models offering a host of luxury additions including cruise control, sunscreen glass, power windows and door locks, cloth seating, rear window defroster, premium audio system, rear heater, lockable illuminated glove compartment with lid, courtesy lights, and more.

Performance & Handling

The Dodge B3500 is a rather bulky vehicle and takes a little time to get up to speed. Maneuvering in strong winds can be tricky as well. Equipped with a powerful 5.2-liter V-8, it has enough power to haul its weight plus a good deal of passengers or cargo. For better performance, a more powerful 5.9-liter V-8 is optional. However, it is still a large van, so it does not provide acceleration and performance that can be found in smaller cars and minivans.

Safety

The 1995 Dodge B3500 includes safety features such as driver front airbag and four-wheel anti-lock brake systems (ABS). Crash test data from the National Institute for Highway Safety (NIHS) is not available at this time.
