Chrysler to Debut Ram ProMaster City for Small Van Market


The Ram Commercial Truck division will offer an all-new small van for the North American market. The 2015 Ram ProMaster City is set to compete with small commercial and passenger vans, the Chrysler Group announced today.

“The Ram ProMaster City further expands the Ram Commercial truck lineup, which includes everything from vans to pickups to Class Four and Five trucks,” says Reid Bigland, president and CEO of the Ram Truck Brand at Chrysler. “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.”

Bigland also noted that the division’s relationship with the commercial truck manufacturer Fiat Professional “gives Ram a competitive advantage with access to proven products and technology that will resonate with our U.S. and Canadian customers.”

The new van will be based on the Fiat Doblo, a two-time International Van of the Year winner with more than 1.3 million units sold. It will encompass familiar Ram Truck styling cues and offer features and powertrains familiar to North American commercial customers, the automaker says.
