Introducing the Ram ProMaster City

Ram Promaster City

Whether the job is delivering packages, organizing and hauling the tools of a professional tradesman or carting the band’s gear to the next gig, the All-New 2015 Ram ProMaster City is designed and engineered to tackle big jobs.

Joining the larger and highly capable Ram ProMaster and popular Ram C/V van, the 2015 Ram ProMaster City stands out in virtually every way with best-in-class attributes in the areas that count.

2015 Ram ProMaster City best-in-class features include:

  • Combined fuel economy
  • 178 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Payload – 1,883 pounds
  • Cargo volume – 131.7 cubic feet
  • Cargo width and length – 60.4 inches and 87.2 inches
  • Distance between wheel wells – 48.4 inches
  • Wheelbase – 122.4 inches

The Ram ProMaster City is thoughtfully designed with the working man in mind. “As businesses strive for lower costs, the demand for a smaller, more efficient van has increased, and Ram Commercial is answering the call with the all-new ProMaster City,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. Years ago, the selection of delivery and cargo vehicles was limited, and those offerings didn’t focus on cost of ownership. Today, all that has changed with the recent introduction of the full-size Ram ProMaster and the now the Ram ProMaster City.”

2015 Ram ProMaster City Storage

“Operators of a new Ram ProMaster City will need to stay focused on daily tasks, so we want the cabin to be a place of comfort, convenience and functionality, said Klaus Busse, Head of Interior Design — Chrysler Group LLC. “Without question, the goal is to create an interior for the person who will spend many hours at the wheel and/or working in and out of the cargo area.”

Powertrain

The 2015 Ram ProMaster City’s powertrain combines MultiAir2 engine technology and an exclusive nine‑speed automatic transmission to deliver best-in-class performance and best-in-class combined fuel efficiency.

ProMaster City Engine

Powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4, the engine generates a best-in-class 178 horsepower at 6,250 rpm, while its peak torque — 174 lb.-ft. at 3,900 rpm — is greater than any standard-equipment engine in the ProMaster City’s segment.

The Ram ProMaster City uses a front-wheel-drive layout that provides several benefits:

  • Fewer mechanical parts, resulting in less weight, lower maintenance costs (in large part because there’s no rear differential), enhanced mechanical efficiencies and enhanced fuel efficiency
  • Optimal cab and cargo compartment space, attributable to the absence of a transmission/prop shaft tunnel — a key enabler to achieving a flat floor in the cargo compartment area
  • More predictable handling in emergency maneuvers (reduced over- and under-steer characteristics)
  • Enhanced traction in rain, mud and snow, a result of the engine weight being situated over the drive wheels
  • Greater payload capability due to lighter overall vehicle weight
