Ram Hosts ProMaster City Van Dealer Drive-Away Event in Chicago Area
The Ram ProMaster City van is selling like hotcakes, so the Ram brand has decided to host a dealer drive-away even in the Chicago metropolitan area. Dealers from around the area made their way to Lombard’s Yorktown Center earlier this week to load up on new Ram ProMaster City vans, driving away with dozens for their customers.
This one-day event, which was held on July 19th, was in an effort to address the high demand for these vans. It was announced following the Ram Commercial Truck brand’s best February, March, April, May, and June sales on record. Though the ProMaster City is relatively new to its segment, it’s easy to see why it has had such an impact on the brand’s commercial sales.
