Fiat Ducato Update May Preview 2017 Ram ProMaster

Slimmer Headlights, LEDs Give Sharper Look to Urban Hauler

Sep 4, 2015
It’s no great secret that the Ram ProMaster is essentially a Fiat Ducato, with appropriate upgrades and modifications for the North American market. Aside from the signature cross-hair grille, the two are nearly indistinguishable -- or at least they were. Halfway through 2014, Fiat unveiled an updated Ducato with slimmer, sharper headlights, optional LED accent lighting, and a generally handsomer, more cohesive appearance.

Beyond the updated appearance, we hope a few of the mind-boggling variations of the Ducato from Europe make their way across the pond. Just look at all these mouth-watering variations, including a cool side-dump bed, a crew cab cab-chassis model, and a passenger model with configurable seating. There are also a ton of cool accessories, including an in-dash mobile phone or tablet computer holde, and a flip-down armrest with a writing surface in three-across models.

In terms of powertrains, the U.S. market still pretty much gets the cream of the crop, with the 3.0L I-4 diesel the only sparkless option and the U.S. getting the 3.6L Pentastar gas V-6, which isn’t available in the European Ducato. Demonstrating the potential bandwidth of the Ducato, Fiat Professional recently showed off a 4x4 concept developed in collaboration with French automotive specialist Dangel. Could an all-wheel-drive ProMaster be headed our way soon? We’d say there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing many of these updates on the 2017 ProMaster. And for those looking for an even beefier work van option, FCA is reportedly considering bringing over a version of the Iveco Daily rear-drive van as a Ram. ProMaster HD, perhaps?
