    Engineering

    The Ram ProMaster City holds a set of hard-working credentials starting with a 48.4-inch span between the rear wheel wells, the widest in the class. The width between the ProMaster City's wheel wells provides an extra margin of capacity allowing building materials and pallets to be loaded quickly and easily.

    Above the wheel wells, the ProMaster City's nearly vertical side panels offer a width dimension of 60.4 inches. Combined with an interior roof height of 51.8 inches, the result is best-in-class volume of 131.7 cubic feet for the cargo van version of the ProMaster City.

    The rear of the Ram ProMaster City is fitted with 60/40 split rear doors. Using lessons learned from European customers, the larger door swings open toward the traffic (driver) side of the van, making it easy to quickly access larger cargo items and not block the path to the curbside of the van

    The five-passenger wagon version of the Ram ProMaster City is equipped with a three-passenger second row. The second-row seating is split 60/40, with each section capable of folding and tumbling forward to expand cargo room.

    Powertrain

    The all-new 2015 Ram ProMaster City is powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 generating a best-in-class 178 horsepower at 6,400 rpm, while its peak torque – 174 lb.-ft. (231 N•m) at 3,900 rpm – is greater than any standard-equipment engine in the segment.

    The centerpiece of the all-new ProMaster City's powertrain is its segment-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission. The ProMaster City is the first commercial van ever to feature a nine-speed automatic, and one of the first vehicles to be so equipped in automotive history.

    Manufacturing

    The 2015 Ram ProMaster City is assembled at the TOFAS plant in Bursa, Turkey. Awarded the World Class Manufacturing Gold Medal, this 3.6-million sq. ft. (83.7-acre) state-of-the-art plant also assembles the Fiat Doblò. The optional cargo van configuration is upfitted at the Chrysler Group Transformation Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

    Another entry to what looks to be a very hot segment. 

     

    Interesting though that the Ram C/V Tradesman (née Dodge Caravan Cargo) is actually $3,000 less than the Promaster City.  Arguably, unless you have a both need for small footprint and you're extremely MPG sensitive, the Ram C/V Tradesman is probably a better buy.

    Ram full size new vans are sure selling as I have seen many in the last week here in Seattle.

     

    They have a nice advantage over the Econolines and Sprinter in that they have lower load floors that are completely flat.  Both of the engines are pretty decent too.
