The Class B Winnebago Solis is designed to be as versatile as it is affordable, whether you’re cruising beachside or camping slope side. Built on the fuel-efficient Ram Promaster chassis, the Solis features all-season insulation and plumbing and in addition to the cross coach sleeping below, the 59P and 59PX floorplans offer the fiberglass studio loft pop top which expands your sleeping space to up to 4 people.
The next generation 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 Engine on the Solis is now paired to segment exclusive TorqueFlite 9-speed automatic transmission. This combination generates 280 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque or power while improving fuel economy up to 9% when compared to the previous powertrain.
The unique transmission calibration in the Solis allows for improved vehicle launch characteristics with smooth transfer between gears to minimize engine howl and enhance fuel-efficiency. Shift Logic is adjusted according to grade steepness.
The class-exclusive front-wheel drive system allows the Ram ProMaster to achieve great traction in nearly all conditions even when loaded up to full Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC.)
Hydraulic steering on previous model year Solis models has been replaced by electric rack-and-pinion power steering. This allows for variable steering assistance and can even improve fuel economy. A new electric rack-and-pinion power steering system has been calibrated to deliver a natural steering feel and allows for variable amounts of steering assistance to be applied. The electric power steering system features a turning diameter of 36.3’ turning diameter so you can easily handle tight curves while navigating crowded streets.
