Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Ram Commercial Truck division announced Dec. 2 that it would offer an all-new small van for the North American market. Dubbed the 2015 Ram ProMaster City, the new van joins the larger and “highly capable” Ram ProMaster as an additional van offering and 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.” Bigland added. The automaker said the new entry is based on the “successful Fiat Doblo, a two-time International Van of the Year winner with more than 1.3 million units sold.”
The automaker said that while the Ram ProMaster City owes much to the Diablo, the van would look familiar with its Ram Truck styling cues and offer features and powertrains preferred by North American commercial customers
