Chrysler did not disclose pricing, specifications or launch timing.
"It's too early to talk about that," said Nick Cappa, a Chrysler spokesman, in a phone conversation.
Chrysler said in a statement that the ProMaster City "will encompass familiar Ram Truck styling cues and offer features and powertrains preferred by North American commercial customers."
The front-wheel-drive panel van is being engineered to meet U.S. regulations. The Doblo is assembled by a Fiat joint venture in Turkey. Chrysler did not say where the Ram ProMaster City will be built.
"As Ram Commercial continues to gain share and grow sales in the market, we will be aggressive in our goal of expanding our commercial vehicle offerings," said Reid Bigland, Ram Truck Brand president and CEO, in a statement. "Our successful relationship with Fiat Professional gives Ram a competitive advantage with access to proven products and technology that will resonate with our U.S. and Canadian customers."
