2014 Ram/fiat Van Unvieled


Dodge is bringing their Fiat Euro van to the states. Looks to be a direct competitor to the Mercedes, called the Promaster. Available motors are a 3.6 v-6 gas and a 3.0 4 cylinder diesel. Hopefulley now that Ford and Dodge are committed to this the price of the high top Euro van will come down.

It looks too froo froo europooie to me. I just wonder why we can't have a large American style van. If there even is such a beast anymore.

I wouldn't say direct competitor. In the UK people have the choice of these vans and fiat is normally one of the last on the list like dodge are last on the list over here for trucks. The Ford transit is still extremely hard to beat but the Mercedes vito and sprinter are still nicer vans than the Fords and Fiats. Even the Renault traffic sells better than the Fiat. Now Dodge have messed around with it i guess it gonna be even less reliable than the ducato.

Yep. The name Fiat doesn't really conjure up images of hard work and long life.

Thats the problem. They struggle to shift the "fix it again tommorow" image. They are ok vans but they aint no transit or sprinter.

I'm 6'3" and was able to stand up in the high top version at the auto show yesterday. Don't know much about reliability, but I think they looked like they could be good workhorses. I really dug the "tradesman" version.

Or that's another they can't shift. What worries me more is dodge have played around with the thing. Dodge ain't really known for making things better.

I'd like to see it with that option. Looks like a buck-tooth, fat-lower lip, protruding underbite, Armour All guzzler.
