Ram has gone ahead and announced pricing for the new 2014 ProMaster van lineup due later this year. The lowest priced ProMaster you can get is the ProMaster 3500 chassis cab cutaway with a 136-inch wheelbase is the $27,025 (includes $995 destination charge). A ProMaster 1500 Cargo van starts at $29,625.

While Ram announced pricing for fourteen different versions of the ProMaster, what they didn't announce is the pricing for the EcoDiesel engine and the six-speed automated manual transmission powertrain combo and if it would be available in all models. That will likely come later down the road.

"The latest addition to the Ram Commercial division, our 2014 Ram ProMaster is an incredible value and contributes to a one-stop shop experience for customers looking for a full-line of commercial-duty Ram trucks and vans," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO - Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC.

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.

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.

Top reasons for purchase in the segment:

-Value

-Quality, reliability, dependability

-Cargo space and payload

-Total cost of ownership

Ram Commercial is tapping into Fiat Professional, one of the largest producers of commercial vehicles in the entire world, offering more than 110 years of experience. That knowledge will help the Ram Commercial enter new segments and expand its product line. The new 2014 Ram ProMaster is based on the front-wheel-drive Fiat Ducato, which is now in its third generation with more than 4.5 million sold worldwide. The Ducato platform offers Ram a proven, award-winning workhorse with an incredible combination of durability, value, efficiency, and capability like no other in its class. Additionally, the ProMaster is the only offering in its competitive set to provide both a chassis cab and cutaway from the factory.

14 choices?

That's how many are listed...wheelbase, roof height, and window variations. Alas, they don't have the interesting pickup and double cab pickup versions that Europe gets.

It is a bit homely and utilitarian, isn't it? The cross-hatch grille does butch up the Ram versions a bit, I suppose.

Let me get this straight... this is a FRONT-WHEEL DRIVE cab and chassis work van? :huh:

might need to do an analysis up against the Econoline, Transit, Savanna/Safari, and whatever the Nissan is called.

I'm surprised Toyota hasn't gotten in on this action yet...

I see a few of these 'high-top' vans (the nissan, for EX) on the road, and I study them, trying to figure out what all that vertical space could possibly be used for.
The best answer I could come up with was; helium balloon delivery van.

Content that is too long/tall to fit vertically in a normal height van.

Sheets of drywall/plywood. Not useful for a home builder of course, but a smaller contractor who only needs a dozen or so at a time and needs to keep them dry....

But those all fit horizontally; there is no need to store them vertically. Just looked at nissan's NV site, interior cargo length is 120", the high roof's height is only 76", which is 2 feet short of a sheet of drywall. It'd have to be at least 10" taller than 96 in order to turn it vertical inside. It's not for that.

They have an admirable selection of interior-outfitting options, but none of them (shelving/ storage) extend higher than the standard-roof height of the van (the height of the glass in the vehicle).

Again- bragging rights WRT interior cubic volume... for delivering balloons, is about all I can see it used for.

Seems to make much more sense to split the difference with the standard roof (interior height : 56") and make it about 70" tall inside- that would allow average-height folk to stand up inside. Curious.

Maybe a lot of ex pro basketball players become deliverymen and require a tall van. :) I've seen many of these types of vans out and about whilst in Europe on holiday in the past, never stopped to inquire as to the content in one, though.

The tall van is 76", that's only 6'4"; on the short side for BB players in general, no?

Ah, shorter than I thought..not even tall enough for dfelt to walk around...I figured it was more like 8 feet inside.

      FCA US Reports March 2019 Sales

      Ram pickup reports new March record as sales increase 9 percent to 45,187 sold Jeep® Grand Cherokee notches best March ever as sales rise 26 percent to 24,655 vehicles sold Ram brand sets new March record as sales jump 15 percent to 51,822 sold April 2, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC reported a new March record for the Ram brand as sales jumped 15 percent, underscoring the success the company has found in its two-pronged strategy of selling both the Ram 1500 and Ram Classic.

      The performance of the Ram brand, combined with a new March record for Jeep® Grand Cherokee, countered general softness within the industry. FCA sold 200,307 vehicles in the month.
       
      "The industry had a tough first quarter but with spring finally starting to show its face and continued strong economic indicators, such as a boost in housing sales, lower lending rates and a strong labor market, we are confident that new vehicle sales demand will strengthen going forward," Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales, said. "Meanwhile, our Ram brand sales and average transaction prices continue to be strong and our much anticipated, game-changing Jeep Gladiator pickup is on track for its in-market debut this month."

      See the attached table for the breakdown of brand and nameplate sales.

      Method of Determining FCA US LLC’s Monthly Sales. FCA US’s reported vehicle sales represent unit sales of vehicles to retail customers, deliveries of vehicles to fleet customers and to others such as FCA US’s employees and retirees as well as vehicles used for marketing. Most of these reported sales reflect retail sales made by dealers out of their own inventory of vehicles previously purchased by them from FCA US. Reported vehicle units sales do not correspond to FCA US’s reported revenues, which are based on FCA US’s sale and delivery of vehicles, and typically recognized upon shipment to the dealer or end customer. As announced on July 26, 2016, FCA US has modified its methodology for monthly sales reporting as follows:  Sales to retail customers by dealers in the U.S. are derived from the New Vehicle Delivery Report (“NVDR”) system and are determined as the sum of (A) all sales recorded by dealers during the month net of all unwound transactions recorded to the end of that month (whether the original sale was recorded in the current month or any prior month); plus (B) all sales of vehicles during that month attributable to past unwinds that had previously been reversed in determining monthly sales (in the current or prior months).  Fleet sales are recorded upon the shipment of the vehicle by FCA US to the customer or end user.  Other retail sales are recorded either (A) when the sale is recorded in the NVDR system (for sales by dealers in Puerto Rico and limited sales made through distributors that submit NVDRs in the same manner as for sales by U.S. dealers) or (B) upon receipt of a similar delivery notification (for vehicles for which NVDRs are not entered such as vehicles for FCA employees).

      On February 28th, Tesla announced that they would be closing most of their retail locations and moving to an online sales model in order to cut costs.  In a blog post yesterday, Tesla has reversed course on that position somewhat, and will not only close a portion of their stores. 
      Some of their locations, around 10%, have already closed and Telsa said they would have closed anyway due to low foot traffic.  Another 20% of locations are currently under review and depending on performance will be decided on in the next few months. 
      All sales will still remain online only, and customers who come into the stores will be shown how to order their vehicle online.  The 1000 mile or 7 day return policy (minus the non-refundable delivery charge) will remain in effect for any customer who has doubts about their purchase.  The remaining Tesla stores will have cars available for test drive and will keep a small number of vehicles in stock for people who want to take delivery immediately. 
      To compensate for this change in direction, Tesla will be raising prices by 3% on the more expensive trims of Model 3, and the Model S and Model X.  The base Model 3 remains $35,000 plus $1,200 delivery charge. Current prices are valid until March 18th.

      Currently, the least expensive way to get into a 3-row Cadillac was to pony up $76 kilo-dollars for a base Cadillac Escalade. Even then, check too many boxes on the option sheet and the price could easily head well into the $80k range.  When the Cadillac XT6 hits dealership later in couple months, that line in the sand will fall by over $20k.
      Cadillac will begin taking orders on the XT6 later this month with a base price starting at $53,690. That gets you a front-wheel drive Premium Luxury model.  The XT6 Sport with standard all-wheel drive starts at $58,090 (including destination charge for both).
      All XT6 models are powered by a 3.6 liter V6 producing 310 hp and a 9-speed automatic transmission shifting power to the wheels.  Active fuel management and Start/Stop are standard.  The Sport model features standard Continuous Damping Control suspension.
      You can read more about the Cadillac XT6 from our coverage of the reveal at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
