ProMaster City appears

by David Zatz on

The above Ram ProMaster City, a heavily modified Fiat Doblò Maxi, has arrived at one dealership. Andy Young photographed the one above on a dealer lot, complete with a large “9 speed automatic” sticker to show off one of its more unique features.

The van is not supposed to be sold until 2015, according to the Ram  site, and was likely shipped for training, as part of an advance press fleet, or to participate in a local event. It has Michigan manufacturer plates.

Powered by a four-cylinder Chrysler engine, the ProMaster City is fighting in a competitive market which will likely stay dominated by Ford’s Transit Connect despite numerous class-leading features. City will be available as either a two-seat cargo van and five-passenger wagon, with a class-leading 48.4 inches of space between the wheel-wheels and 87 inches of cargo length, for easier loading of pallets. Above the wheel-wells is a best in class width of 60.4 inches, and for a best in class volume of 132 cubic feet.

See our ProMaster City page for a comparison of the Ram van with the Doblò XL, Ram Cargo Van, and Ford Transit Connect.
