  • Dozens of ProMaster City vans gathered at Angel Stadium of Anaheim before arriving in Los Angeles-area Ram Truck dealerships
July 22, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Ram Truck dealers from around the Los Angeles metropolitan area made their way to Angel Stadium of Anaheim 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 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.
