Progressive Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Commercial Vehicle Sales



The Progressive Auto Group has proudly served Massillon, Akron and the rest of Ohio since 1937, with outstanding customer service. Here at Progressive Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we like to go above and beyond for our customers in every way we can, and we know that includes the local business community. As business’ needs have changed over the years, commercial sales have changed, too. Commercial vehicles can be anything now, not just the typical vehicles you’ve imagined. Now, it’s common for businesses to ask for Jeep Cherokee SUVs, Dodge Challenger cars and others. It’s not all about the Ram 1500 trucks and ProMaster vans anymore, although we sell those, too!

When you come to our commercial vehicle department, you’ll find that there’s no typical business owner that we work with. We’ve worked with all types of businesses, including physicians and doctors. It makes us proud to say we’ve been able to help other members of our community find the right solutions for their businesses. Our Jeep dealership in Massillon, OH, excels at building a repertoire with customers, as we offer a level of trust you won’t find anywhere else. Buying from us is more like a luxury car-buying experience, and feels more personal.

Finding the right vehicle for your business is our goal, whether it’s an SUV or a commercial van

We do our best to offer outstanding customer service throughout the full commercial vehicle-buying process, and as a part of that we respect your needs. We understand that as a business owner, you’re dedicated to your work and you’re always on-call. That’s why we make the car-buying process simple by delivering to your home or office. We wouldn’t want you to take any unnecessary time off, after all.

No two businesses are alike and that’s what makes Progressive different – Truly understanding your needs and finding the right vehicle.

Get to know the expert team in our Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram commercial vehicle department. They’re all eager to work with you!
