Ram began offering a full-size van in the early 1960s.The segment has since evolved from a standard size van with basic capability and tolerable efficiency to a purpose-built cargo hauler with engineering and execution that combines desirable sizes and configurations. There are roughly 3.1 million Class 2 vans in U.S. service today, mostly in fleets, and nearly 61 percent are more than 10 years old. Another 32 percent are between 4 and 9 years old. The largest percentage of which is a vehicle that is no longer produced, leaving customers searching for an alternative. Segment volumes are expected to be nearly 400,000 units spanning over the next five years with large vans representing more than 80 percent of Class 1-4 offerings. 2011 Polk sales data shows 60 percent cargo van, 23 percent chassis cab and 17 percent passenger van.

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.

Timing of Ram ProMaster launch aligns with the recent announcement of Ram Commercial, a new division of the Ram Truck brand to meet the unique requirements of commercial customers. With the entire auto industry growing by two million units year over year in 2012, and further growth expected in 2013, commercial business is key as it represents about one quarter of the total U.S. sales volume.
Joined by the 2014 Ram C/V, the 2014 Ram ProMaster targets countless businesses in a variety of industries, including service and repairs, construction, transportation/shipping, large-medium-small businesses and agriculture. The economy has incurred pent-up demand to replace aging commercial vans and vehicles that are no longer offered in the market. This has created an opportunity and the ProMaster will be an attractive choice with a variety of capable and efficient models ready for any job.
