What's New for 2015

The 2015 Ram ProMaster City is an all-new compact cargo and passenger van.

Introduction

The 2015 Ram ProMaster City joins a new wave of compact vans that trade heavy, truck-based platforms for lighter, front-drive chassis, tall roofs and easy loading. Based on a compact Fiat van popular in Europe, the ProMaster City will offer both cargo and passenger configurations.

A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine handles the heavy lifting, generating 178 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque sent through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The ProMaster City won't be swift exactly, requiring 9.8 seconds to haul itself up to 60 mph from a standstill. But payload capacity is rated at 1,883 pounds and maximum cargo capacity at nearly 132 cubic feet, both class-leading specifications. An optional Tow package will allow the ProMaster City to tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Ram has yet to announce estimated fuel economy figures.

A multilink independent rear suspension (rather than conventional, trucklike leaf springs) and slightly elevated ride height should give the ProMaster City a comfortable ride quality and enhance the tall van's handling and stability. A 51.8-inch roof height and slightly more than 48 inches between the wheelwells -- enough to load a full-size pallet -- promises exceptional versatility for delivery services and mobile workshops.

The 2015 ProMaster City should also make quick work of loading and unloading cargo with sliding side doors, 60/40-split rear doors (the smaller of the two doors opens curbside) and a 21.5-inch rear step-in height. Both doors default to a 90-degree opening, but can swing a full 180 degrees once you release a hinge latch. The passenger version even offers second-row seating that folds and tumbles forward, yielding nearly 6 feet of cargo area length.

Standard safety features for the ProMaster City will include antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, hill-start assist, trailer sway control, rollover mitigation, a rearview camera and parking sensors.

The 2015 ProMaster City will be available in Tradesman (cargo) and Wagon (passenger) versions. The Tradesman will offer base and SLT trim levels, each available without side panel windows, rear windows only, or both side and rear windows. SLT trim levels will offer body-colored front and rear bumpers, integrated foglamps and available body-color side mirrors.

Ram hasn't disclosed full interior specs or options yet, but the cabin, even in the Wagon models, is expected to offer basic appointments of cloth seating, a 5-inch color touchscreen interface and Uconnect hands-free phone functionality.

With class-leading payload and cargo capacity, the 2015 Ram ProMaster City checks most of the boxes against its Chevrolet City Express and Nissan NV200 rivals. The Ford Transit Connect offers a seven-passenger configuration, however, and can also be ordered with leather upholstery and other creature comforts.
