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.

2012 Ram 5500 with Boxtruck Body Upfit

August 15th, 2011 | Ram Zone- Another year is halfway through, so here at the Ram Truck brand we’re thinking to the future. We’re excited about the changes we’re bringing to you for 2012 , but even more so, proud of the consistency that Chrysler Group LLC has been bringing to the table since 1925. Here’s a quick peek at our 2012 offerings. We know you’ll enjoy.

The biggest news for the 2012 model year lays with our HD HEMI-powered trucks which are now offered with a new six-speed automatic transmission. This new transmission, called the 66RFE, replaces the previous 545RFE gearbox, and comes standard with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 on all Ram 2500 models.

But that’s certainly not all – our Ram Chassis Cab trucks get upgrades and increased capabilities for the 2012 model year. Specifically, the GCWR has been increased to 30,000 lbs., the trucks have been designed with heavier payload towing in mind, and the best improvement of all—Ram trucks now provide a lower cost of ownership.

Also noteworthy are programmable options, allowing customers to select a maximum speed for the 2012 Ram Chassis Cab at no extra cost. Either the factory or the Ram Truck dealer can adjust the speed, with 55, 60, 65, 70 or 75 mph limits. The Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab trucks, typically used as safety and rescue vehicles, have a standard 87 mph top speed. This is a great feature for those of you that have the occasional lead foot.
