Which Promaster City does Edmunds recommend?

Whether you choose the Cargo or the Wagon version will depend on your hauling needs, but opting for the SLT trim level is a good idea. It gets you a leather-wrapped steering wheel and the option of heated seats, cruise control and a slightly upmarket appearance package.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

If you're looking for a versatile compact van, Ram offers the 2019 ProMaster City. Although you can't stand upright inside this van as you can in the much larger, full-size ProMaster van (reviewed separately), it's still a very practical option. There are two versions: a two-passenger cargo van and a five-passenger van (the Wagon). The interior is spacious in both. The maximum cargo volume of 131.7 cubic feet is larger than in most competitors, and the ProMaster City's payload rating of 1,885 pounds (or 1,760 pounds for the passenger version) is excellent for this class of vehicle.

All ProMaster City versions come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 178 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration and fuel economy are both respectable for the class. On the move, the ProMaster City rides well enough for a commercial van, but its tall, narrow profile means turns should be navigated with some caution. This is one reason we don't consider the ProMaster City Wagon as an alternative to a five-passenger crossover SUV. A noisy cabin and limited safety features are other reasons.

For passenger van duty, the similarly priced and recently redesigned Ford Transit Connect is a better option. It has lower payload limits, but it comes in two wheelbase lengths. The passenger version also has additional amenities, including seven-passenger seating and leather upholstery. If you have the budget, the slightly larger and more expensive Mercedes-Benz Metris is worth a look, too. We like it because of its above-average interior space and good road manners. Overall, though, the ProMaster City is a solid option if you need an affordable and capable cargo van for your business or organization.

2019 Ram Promaster City models

The 2019 ProMaster City comes as a cargo van, called the Cargo, and a five-passenger version known as the Wagon. Both the Cargo and Wagon have Tradesman and SLT trim levels. The main differences between the base and the SLT come in the form of standard equipment, better seats and a less utilitarian appearance. Of course, the Tradesman Cargo Van seats just two passengers and the Wagon seats five.

Both the Cargo and the Wagon use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (178 horsepower, 174 pound-feet). The engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and is only available in front-wheel drive.

Standard equipment includes 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, power front windows, cloth upholstery, air conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a front overhead storage bin, a 60/40-split folding rear seat (Wagon only), Bluetooth, a 5-inch touchscreen, and a four-speaker stereo with a USB port.

For the SLT trim levels, all of the above equipment comes standard, along with body-colored mirrors and bumpers, power-adjustable heated mirrors, privacy glass, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, height and lumbar adjustments for the driver's seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, upgraded cloth upholstery, and cruise control.

Available option packages include the Popular Entertainment group (second-row power windows, a six-speaker stereo, heated front seats), a Cargo Partition package, a Lights and Wheels group (16-inch alloy wheels and foglights), and a tow package with a Class III hitch.

There are almost too many stand-alone options to name, but other major ProMaster City options include roof rails, a rear window defroster and wiper/washer, remote start, rear parking sensors, a navigation system (in combination with the 5-inch touchscreen), window grates, satellite radio, and a telematics option for vehicle tracking.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of this vehicle, but we have limited experience with a preproduction model. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Scorecard

Overallundefined / 5

Driving

There's a suitable amount of pep driving around town. But once on the highway — especially if fully loaded — the ProMaster City starts to feel slow. The nine-speed automatic's shifting can be a bit clunky at low speeds. When driving around turns, the van leans heavily.

Comfort

Vinyl seats can be had in Cargo and Wagon configurations, but the SLT trim gets heated front seats with height adjustment and lumbar support.

Interior

It may be a small van, but the ProMaster City is still roomy and comfortable. Forward visibility is good, and rearward visibility is helped by a rearview camera and optional rear parking sensors.

Utility

The Cargo version of the ProMaster City has 131.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. That's more than the Ford Transit Connect and the Nissan NV200 but less than the larger Mercedes-Benz Metris.

Technology

Standard equipment includes the Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and a rearview camera. Rear parking sensors are optional but recommended.

There are no consumer reviews for the 2019 Ram Promaster City.

    Ram ProMaster City vs. the competition

    Ram ProMaster City vs. Ford Transit Connect

    For 2019, the Transit Connect receives a fairly major update, with new styling and new engine options, including a diesel. When optioned accordingly, it does a better impersonation of a small SUV than the ProMaster City. You can still get it in a cargo-only configuration. It might be the toughest competition the ProMaster City has to face.

    Ram ProMaster City vs. Chevrolet City Express

    Chevrolet never really had its heart in this little van. It was essentially a rebranded Nissan NV200, and it will be discontinued after the 2018 model year. Its low price might be the biggest selling point, but you get what you pay for — the Express has fairly basic accommodations and low levels of technology. We'll see if Chevy goes back to the drawing board.

    Ram ProMaster City vs. Nissan NV200

    Price might be the strongest selling point for Nissan's littlest van. It trails the ProMaster City in just about every other field, including refinement. But for the budget-conscious business owner looking for an inexpensive compact cargo van (a passenger version isn't offered unless you buy one in the Taxi-spec), the NV200 might fit the bill.

    Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ram Promaster City Minivan?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
