Auburn Hills, Mich.
Ram Truck dealers from around the Chicago metropolitan area made their way to Lombard’s Yorktown Center today to load-up on new Ram ProMaster City vans.
The Ram Commercial Truck brand hosted a one-day dealer drive-away event for the popular new ProMaster City van. From there, dealers will head back to their stores with dozens of small vans destined for all sorts of small businesses – from caterers to locksmiths.
Following Ram Commercial Truck brand’s best February, March, April, May and June on record for small-van sales volumes, Ram dealers have been clamoring for more shipments in order to meet the unprecedented demand.
The ProMaster City’s class-leading features and third-party accolades, including Green Car Journal’s
2016 Commercial Green Car of the Year™, have helped boost the van’s success.
Ram ProMaster City offers best-in-class standard features where they count:
- 178 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque
- Payload – 1,883 pounds
- Cargo volume – 131.7 cubic feet
- Unsurpassed 24 combined mpg (21 mpg city/ 29 mpg highway)
- Unsurpassed towing capacity – 2,000 lbs.
- Exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission
- Powertrain warranty – five years/60,000 miles
The 2016 Ram ProMaster City is Ram’s newest addition to its commercial vehicle lineup and contributes to the expanding, purpose-built van segment with functional elements tied directly to commercial customer demand. ProMaster City opens a door for incremental growth of Ram’s brand sales volumes.
Available in Tradesman cargo or five-passenger Wagon variations, the Ram ProMaster City is based on the successful Fiat Doblò, a two-time International Van of the Year winner with more than 1.3 million units sold. The Class 1 entry incorporates familiar Ram design elements and offers features, systems and powertrains preferred by North American customers.
