The Fiat connection continues to proliferate throughout the Chrysler lineup; this time in the form of the Ram ProMaster City, a compact van for light duty commercial applications and passenger use. Based on the third generation Fiat Doblò, produced by the Fiat Professional division. to date some 1.3 million of the small vans are already in service all over the world. Fiat has been producing the Dobio since the 2000 model year. There is even an electric version of the van offered in Europe.
Taking full advantage of the lessons learned from the longevity of its Europe-market sibling, the Ram ProMaster City promises reduced cost of operation over traditionally sized vans, while still carrying the vast majority of loads the trades call for. Ideally sized for urban environments, the ProMaster City also offers the ease of handling of a compact car.
According to Ram spokespeople, the Ram ProMaster City will deliver best in class fuel economy, horsepower, torque, payload, and cargo volume. The tall roofed small van features front-wheel drive, a multilink rear suspension system, and a cavernous cargo compartment for easy loading and handling significant payloads.
