The RAM ProMaster City is a compact van available in cargo and passenger configurations. This front-wheel drive model arrived in 2015 and is available in four trim levels. Built in Turkey and completed in the United States, the ProMaster City is based on the Fiat Doblò.
What's New for 2017
Now in its third year, the 2017 ProMaster City is virtually unchanged from last year. RAM says the latest model has brighter shifter illumination for improved visibility. Reflectors have been added to the inside of the rear doors, again for improved visibility.
Choosing Your RAM ProMaster City
As before, you have your choice of Tradesman (cargo) and Wagon (passenger) versions. All cargo versions are available with panels or glass, or a combination of the two. All Wagon models are outfitted with rear and side windows. Cargo vans have two front seats; wagon models add a second-row bench for three.
All versions of this compact van are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine making 178 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The ProMaster City is EPA-rated at 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Every trim comes with halogen headlamps, all-season tires, and 180-degree pivoting rear doors. Air conditioning, power windows and door locks, a tilt and telescopic steering column, and cloth seats are standard.
Other notable features include its lengthy 122.4-inch wheelbase and generous cargo space. Indeed, the ProMaster City measures 48.4 inches between the front and rear wheels.
If you’re considering the wagon version you’ll find space for five and excellent cargo room. It is closer in size to what a true minivan should look like, but it doesn’t have the many creature features found in either a Chrysler Pacifica or a Dodge Grand Caravan.
