Ram has recently pulled the wraps off the 2014 Promaster during the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, which is basically a rebadged Fiat Ducato with some minor styling tweaks.
The 2014 Ram Promaster is getting ready to be launched in the United States and a first step into this direction has already been taken, with the North American based automaker bringing it to the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. According to Ram, the 2014 Promaster is basically a Fiat Ducato which has been rebadged and slightly modified. The van is highly customizable, coming with high and low roofs and with wheelbases ranging between 118 and 159 inches.
“The new 2014 Ram ProMaster offers the most fuel-efficient model in its class and includes best-in-class usability and more cargo capacity than the competition. The new van also offers customers low total cost of ownership with serviceability topping anything in the segment and more proven experience than anything in it class”, as Ram is saying in its official press release.
The cheapest version of the 2014 Ram Promaster will get a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine under its hood, which is producing a total output of 280 BHP (209 kW) and it has a peak torque of 260 lb-ft (352 Nm). Higher grades can get the 3.0 liter four-cylinder diesel, which is good for 174 BHP (130 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (399 Nm). The model will be assembled in Saltillo, Mexico, and production will start in late 2013.
