Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is offering an array of options exclusively to fleet purchasers for its 2019-model-year lineup, including previously announced optional equipment for the Chrysler Pacifica minivan and pair of Ram 1500 pickups.
"Our latest menu of fleet-only options covers the range from technology to safety, and from durability to driver comfort," said Mark Spencer, FCA Fleet product group manager. "We think our customers are going to be very pleased with the number of fleet-specific enhancements we're offering for the 2019 model year."
The ProMaster and ProMaster City vans gain an exterior styling polish, and the full-size ProMaster increases payload and towing capability, while dropping the turbo-diesel 3.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
The ProMaster cargo van can be customized with 16-by-6-inch white painted steel wheels, front and rear mud flaps, and orange seat belts. Customers also have the option of deleting rear and side badging, as well as the spare tire. The window van models offer all these options, except the orange seat belts. With the chassis cab and cutaway models, fleet buyers can add the white painted wheels, front mud flaps, and an orange seat belt. Features that can be deleted include the rear cross member, side badging, and spare tire.
The ProMaster City adds a new grille nose for all models, and also includes this update with the optional Taxicab package in the passenger wagon. The Tradesman and SLT models also offer two additional key fobs for fleets.
The Jeep lineup includes new fleet options for the Compass, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee.
On the Jeep Compass Sport, fleets can add an eight-way power driver's seat, rear ParkSense braking assist, and 17-inch aluminum wheels as an upgrade from the 16-inch standard wheels.
The Cherokee, which receives a midcycle update, offers fleet-only options on Latitude, Latitude Plus, and Limited. Latitude buyers can add a full-size spare tire; the Mobile Office Group that includes a 115-volt power outlet and power eight-way driver's seat with a four-way lumbar adjustment; and the Safety Group that includes rear ParkSense and a rear tonneau cover.
Latitude Plus options include the spare tire; the Safety Group; the Travel and Safety Group that includes rear ParkSense, a remote start system, security alarm, and a rear tonneau cover; and Uconnect 4C navigation with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display. Limited offers the spare tire.
