Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Ram ProMaster City

The Van is Back

Generally there’s not a lot to get excited about with commercial vans, unless of course you’re a fleet operator, sub-contractor or anyone else in need of spacious transportation that doesn’t break the bank. If you fall into one of these camps there’s really never been a better time to buy.

Right now there are several excellent schleppers available in North America. Of course there’s the ever-popular Mercedes-Benz Sprinter but if you need something smaller and more economical there are plenty of options as well. There’s the recently updated Transit Connect from Ford, Nissan has its NV200 van and Chevrolet a rebranded version of this Japanese vehicle. But Chrysler is not about to let rival automakers carve up a potentially lucrative market. Oh no, the Italian-American company is introducing a version of the hard-working Fiat Doblò to drivers on this side of the Atlantic.
