Ram Commercial Truck continues to enjoy record small-van sales and recently held another dealer drive-away event to help keep up with growing demand for its ProMaster City van.

Ram Truck dealers from around the Los Angeles metropolitan area made their way to Angel Stadium of Anaheim Friday to load-up on new Ram ProMaster City vans. From there, dealers headed head back to their stores with dozens of vans destined for a variety 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 reports that dealers have been clamoring for more shipments in order to meet the unprecedented demand.

Ram credits growing sales to the ProMaster City’s class-leading features and third-party accolades, including Green Car Journal’s 2016 Commercial Green Car of the Year award.

Ram ProMaster City offers the following best-in-class standard features:

  • 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.

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 powertrain options that have proven popular with North American customers.
