FIAT Doblo with Ram Trim

FIAT Doblo with Ram Trucks Trim

You knew it had to happen eventually. It was inevitable. And now here it is. The first Fiat to go Chrysler. As of right now it looks like the FIAT Doblo will be coming to US soil wearing the Ram Truck‘s trim. The above picture is not an actual photo of the new van, just what my imagination leads me to believe it may look like, with the headlights possibly being shaped more similar to a Ram 1500‘s. (This is my first attempt at photoshopping a concept vehicle, so go easy on me.)

But then again, that’s just a guess, and your guess is as good as mine! No actual photos have been released yet, but when they are, we’ll bring them your way! Here’s what Chrysler Group LLC had to say about the Fiat Doblo coming to Ram Trucks:

September 9, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich.; Istanbul, Turkey; Turin, Italy – A Letter of Intent has been signed between Fiat Group Automobiles SpA (FGA) and its Turkish joint-venture partner TOFAS for the supply of the Fiat Doblò vehicle to Chrysler Group where it will be sold in the U.S. and Canadian markets under the Ram brand.

Exports of the Doblò, recently voted “International Van of the Year 2011,” will commence in early 2013. The seven-year supply agreement calls for TOFAS to export a total of 190,000 units of the successful Doblò vehicle from its Bursa facility – Turkey’s largest automobile production plant.

TOFAS will invest over $160 million (USD) for the necessary U.S. and Canadian homologation and customer requirement modifications.

Listed on the Istanbul Stock Exchange and established 43 years ago in 1968, TOFAS is a joint-venture between Fiat Group Automobiles SpA and the Koc Group.
