2015 Citroen Jumper (Peugeot Boxer, Fiat Ducato) Spotted with No Camouflage

Spyshots for passenger vans and commercial vehicles are never going to be as glamorous as the latest AMG supercar. But Europe's economic recovery depends to a degree on the success of its commercial vehicles, which have to be cheap, frugal workhorses.
Towards the end of 2014, new emissions regulations mean vans will have to be cleaner and more efficient than ever, which means most automakers are working on all-new or significantly updated models.

Introduced back in 2006, the third-generation Ducato/Jumper/Boxer will receive an updated fascia together with comprehensive mechanical changes. We've seen a test prototype during testing once before, but a photo that surfaced on Joke for Blog shows the complete front fascia of the upcoming vehicle.

Double chevrons in the front bumper mean that we are looking at the Citroen Jumper van. At a glance, the styling of the C4 Picasso has trickled down to this mode, influencing the design of the new headlamps and redesigned hood, grille and bumper. The fact that it's not painted doesn't exactly flatter the vehicle, but considering this will replace on of the ugliest vans ever made, we're not upset.

Power, torque, the gearbox, the clutch, the suspension – these are all things that need to be improved before Citroen can even consider how this thing looks. A DS3 this is not!

Since this same van with a different face is also the Fiat Ducato, it's not just Europe that's at stake here. As you might, the Ram ProMaster on sale Stateside for the 2014 model year is the identical twin of the Fiat model. Look for updates that jump the pond in 2015!
