ProMaster ?? Good grief.

Hey Ram/Dodge/Chrysler/Fiat or whatever you're called...you just won the stupid vehicle name of the year award...and it's only February.  :winner:

So white van man will get a Fiat van while us poor mortals can't get a Fiat car apart from the cute but too small 500.
There are only two golden rules for attaining a mature age: first, always give way to temptation; and second, go easy on the fruit and veg. No other measures are required.

I guess some Euro styling just doesn't fly on this side of the pond. Hopefully the interior will have better looking ergonomics.

Seems like the have tested the van, just have to see how made in Mexico fairs.

3.6-litre PentastarTM VVT V6 is this a revamped Pentastar or same old ?

FWD...huh on a N\A van ...umm I guess. Specs seem good  :think:

Looks like this guy should be driving that van.

FWD!?!?  This is stupid on so many levels...  I think the Sprinter and full-size Transit will do better than this thing.
