Ram ProMaster Chassis Cab

Came across this new chassis cab from dodge, looks very interesting, its like a sprinter van, but cheaper, front wheel drive, low deck height, decent payload, etc, let me know what you guys think.
I think it would make an awesome mowing truck.
I included a few pictures of the frame and also the Fiat version, which is apparently very popular in Europe.

Surprising that it's FWD. I wonder what the load capacity/towing capacity would be? Seems to me that a transverse mount engine with CV shafts would not hold up well to towing/hauling equipment. Idk, just a thought. I like the concept though. How do they compare to like the Isuzu NPR's and other cabovers? Or even just a Ram 3500 Chassis truck?

It's a lighter duty truck, than any of those you mentioned, I think the payload is up 5000lbs with the 3500 series, towing I think is 5000 also, its more like a sprinter van in comparison. I'm thinking more of a dedicated working truck, with a ramp, couple mowers and a wb in the back, and the ability to tow a trailer for clean-ups and such. Its a brand new design, so I'm just dreaming.
