Chrysler’s Ram Truck brand will produce a new commercial van for the North American market.
Called the ProMaster, the 2014 model will go on sale next fall. The ProMaster will join the smaller Ram Cargo Van, or C/V, rounding out Ram’s product line-up with a full-size commercial van.
“The Ram ProMaster further strengthens our commercial line- up, offering a full line of work trucks and vans,” said Fred Diaz, president and CEO of the Ram Truck Brand.
Chrysler hasn’t shared many details, or any photos, of the new full-size van, based on the popular Fiat Ducato, but Chrysler officials are confident that the Pro- Master will be popular with their commercial customers.
Though Chrysler says the Pro-Master will feature the same iconic styling Ram customers have come to expect, the technology will be heavily influenced by the Ducato, known around the world for its dependability and versatility.
“We feel that from a product-feature and launch timing stand-point, the all-new Ram ProMaster van is going to be a home run with commercial customers,” added Diaz.
