Ram has just unveiled the new ProMaster City, the last of the big three to bring out a small cargo van.
The ProMaster City will take on the Ford Transit Connect and the new Chevy City Express in the battle for delivery company supremacy. Based on the Fiat Doblo, the ProMaster City is a front-wheel drive unibody van that Ram claims has best-in-class payload, cargo volume and powertrain efficiency.
For looks, it adopts some of the Dart’s front-end styling, and thankfully it looks much better than its big brother, the full-size ProMaster.
Under the hood, a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine pumps out 178 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque, sent through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Payload capacity is listed at 1,883 pounds for the 122.4-inch wheelbase van, while the cargo area behind the front seats is 130 cubic feet.
For better usability, six chassis-connect tie-down hooks are mounted in the floor, while the space between the wheel wells is a full 48 inches. Sliding doors are featured on the side of the van, while the rear has 60/40 split side hinged access doors.
ProMaster City can be had with either two-seats or five seats, depending on whether or not the customer wants to haul people or cargo.
