U.S. sales of the Ram Cargo Van were significantly higher in November 2012 than in November 2011, but it remains an unlikely purchase for the vast majority of commercial van buyers. Of the 21,683 vans registered in November 2012 by electricians, water purification installers, and regular people who need space for a dozen kids, only 3.4% were Ram Cargo Vans.
The new Fiat Ducato-based Ram ProMaster will likely do big things for the brand’s share of the category, however. Announced late last month, the ProMaster should be quite a bit different from the Ducato, Ram says. But the cargo hold you see in the above image will presumably go unaltered.
We can expect to see the Euro-derived, E-Series-replacing Ford Transit continue in its place atop the leaderboard. Its margin of victory at the end of each and every month may not be so significant when Ram provides its challenger.
