Fiat Ducato and Peugeot Manager in MexicoEdit

This third generation Ducato has been available in Mexico since November 15, 2007, and over 30 different models are available. The third generation Ducato is currently only offered in the Mexican market.

As part of the joint venture between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Fiat Group, the Peugeot version of the Fiat Ducato, known as Boxer in Europe, is also available in Mexico, but with the "Manager" nametag.

United States and Canadian VersionEdit

On February 7, 2013, Ram Commercial Trucks part of Chrysler Group's Ram Trucks brand) unveiled the Ram ProMaster at the Chicago Auto Show. Since the 2009 bankruptcy of Chrysler and subsequent acquisition by Fiat, Chrysler has not offered a large van in the United States or Canada. Dodge Trucks (the brand name used by Chrysler prior to the inception of the Ram brand) had offered a version of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van starting in 2003.

Based on the Ducato, the most significant difference between the ProMaster and the Ducato is the availability of a gasoline-powered engine. The Chrysler Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine will be offered in conjunction with the Chrysler 62TE six-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. The Fiat 3.0L I4 diesel engine mated with the M40 six-speed automated manual transmission will be offered as an optional powertrain.

The ProMaster will be offered in three wheelbases (118 inch, 136 inch, 159 inch) , four overall body lengths (195 inch, 213 inch, 236 inch, 250 inch, with the two longest body lengths available only with the 159-inch wheelbase), and two overall heights (88 inch and 99 inch). Both panel-van and window-van versions will be offered, while chassis-cab and cut-away configurations will be offered on the 136 inch and 159 inch wheelbases. Passenger versions were not announced.

The ProMaster will be produced in Chrysler’s manufacturing facility in Saltillo, Mexico, with an expected availability in the third quarter of 2013.
