Ram Commercial Confirms New Small Van

December 2, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



The Ram Commercial Truck division today announced that it will offer an all-new small van for the North American market.

Joining the larger and highly capable Ram ProMaster as an additional van offering, the 2015 Ram ProMaster City will compete with small commercial and passenger vans.

"The Ram ProMaster City further expands the Ram Commercial truck lineup, which includes everything from vans to pickups to Class Four and Five trucks," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO - Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "As Ram Commercial continues to gain share and grow sales in the market, we will be aggressive in our goal of expanding our commercial vehicle offerings."

"Our successful relationship with Fiat Professional, one of the world's foremost commercial truck manufacturers, gives Ram a competitive advantage with access to proven products and technology that will resonate with our U.S. and Canadian customers," added Bigland.

Based on the successful Fiat Doblo, a two-time International Van of the Year winner with more than 1.3 million units sold, the Ram ProMaster City will encompass familiar Ram Truck styling cues and offer features and powertrains preferred by North American commercial customers.

Fiat Doblo Van to Do Double-Duty as Ram ProMaster City for 2015

12/03/13



Chrysler’s Ram Commercial Truck division will import a small panel van to the U.S. for the 2015 model year. Based on the Fiat Doblo, the new Ram ProMaster City will join the existing Fiat Ducato-based Ram ProMaster full-size van in U.S. showrooms next year. The Doblo is also currently sold in Europe as the Opel Combo.

The ProMaster City van bolsters Ram’s presence in the emerging light-commercial box-van market. The Turkish-built ProMaster City will compete with other fresh small-van entries, including the Ford Transit (now in its second generation here in the States), the Nissan NV200, and its badge-engineered Chevy City Express sibling.

No details have been released on engines and transmissions, but the Doblo is available with gas- and diesel-powered four-cylinder powerplants in Europe. The Ram ProMaster City will be available in both commercial and passenger versions, much like Ford’s Transit Connect. Expect to see a version with contemporary Ram Truck styling language and hear more details about ProMaster City features and technology at the Chicago auto show in February.
