It may seem odd, but one of the fastest growing segments of the auto industry is that of the compact cargo van. FCA isn’t just sitting idly bye as this segment continues to grow either. They are jumping head first and offering one of the best compact cargo vans for the money, the Ram ProMaster City.
“As businesses strive for lower costs, the demand for a smaller, more efficient van has increased and Ram Commercial is answering the bell with the all-new ProMaster City,” Reid Bigland, President and CEO — Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC said in a Chrysler press release. “Years ago, the selection of delivery and cargo vehicles was limited and those offerings didn’t focus on cost of ownership. Today all of that has changed with the recent introduction of the full-size Ram ProMaster, and the now the Ram ProMaster City.”
As Bigland said, there is now a renewed focus on the cost of ownership of a cargo van or fleet of them. One of the biggest costs considered is fuel. That is why the Ram ProMaster City has been outfitted with a 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 engine, the same one found in popular models such as the Chrysler 200, Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee. Additionally, it has been made the world’s first commercial van with nine-speed automatic transmission and the ProMaster City, as with all Ram trucks, comes with a five year/100,000 mile warranty.
While we here at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram don’t typically carry commercial trucks like the 2015 Ram ProMaster City, we offer a car finder form, which will allow us to help you get your hands on the highly anticipated compact cargo van without searching all over the state.
