My Day With the 2015 Ram ProMaster City
Several weeks ago, I learned I would eventually be getting my hands on the 2015 Ram ProMaster City van. In preparation for that day, I decided I would do my research and share the important numbers and dimensions it revealed with all of you, which I did in late November. I love facts and figures as much as the next guy, but I love to drive more. I recently got the chance to do just that in downtown Austin and the surrounding Hill Country. Read about my experience after the jump.
Last week, I went to a (sort of) birthday party in downtown Austin, Texas. I didn’t bring any food or a gift, though. Chrysler fed me. It also gave me a big present: a few hours in its 2015 300, a nameplate that turned 60 this year. Read about my time with the new car after the jump.
Some people actually use vans for work. Plumbers, cable installers, audio/video specialists — they all need something to transport their supplies. Ram Trucks recently announced the minimum amount they’ll need to pay for the ProMaster City: $24,125*.
Chrysler wants to know what high schoolers think the future of the company looks like, and they’re willing to pay for it at the Detroit Autorama High School Design Competition 2015.
Back in 2011, the halo Hellcat project wasn’t awarded any scarce product development money. Then it was shelved. Luckily, the SRT folks kept pushing to make it a production engine. After four months, Chrysler’s product development committee decided to play along.
