The 2018 Ram ProMaster City is a compact commercial vehicle capable of tackling various business needs. From delivering packages to taking one's work items on the go, the ProMaster City can do it all thanks to its ample cargo space and configurations. It may not be the prettiest commercial vehicle on sale, but with an available 131.7 cubic feet of cargo space and a payload capacity of 1,883 pounds, the compact van can handle tough tasks.
What's New for 2018
Soldiering on for its fourth year, the 2018 ProMaster City carries on mostly unchanged. New features for 2018 include sliding and back door window grates that are now available on Cargo Vans without a partition and the addition of Uconnect 3 with a five-inch touchscreen. Bluetooth and a rearview camera are now standard, as well.
Choosing Your RAM ProMaster City
The ProMaster City is available in two variants: Wagon (passenger) and Tradesman (cargo). Both styles are available with glass, panels, or a combination of both. Both the Wagon and Tradesman variants come with rear and side windows. Consumers that opt for the Tradesman cargo van are treated to two seats, while the Wagon version comes with five seats.
The ProMaster City features a 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir engine that generates 178 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. The motor is matched to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The EPA rates the van to get 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, resulting in a combined rating of 24 mpg.
Thanks to the ProMaster City's front-wheel-drive layout, the vehicle features a 23.3-inch load floor height, which makes getting large items into and out of the vehicle a breeze. And the 60/40-split rear doors are also helpful when it comes to loading and unloading items.
For consumers looking for a van that offers a lot of cargo capacity for business purposes, the Tradesman lineup is the ideal choice. Drivers wanting something a little more traditional with seating for five and a large amount of cargo space can opt for the Wagon trims. But those aren't nearly as comfortable to drive or have as many creature comforts as more traditional minivans.
