Dodge ProMaster City; Drive your business around in style

Smiley face

The 2015 Ram ProMaster City Cargo van is the Americanized version of the successful Fiat Doblò, a two-time international Van of the Year winner with more than a million units sold. The ProMaster has been designed with North American customers in mind. This magnificent commercial vehicle is built by TOFAS in Bursa, Turkey, in a 3.6-million square foot WCM Gold Plant, alongisde the Fiat Doblò.

What makes this commercial vehicle stand out from the rest? It starts with a unibody design that keeps the total weight down while maximizing load carrying space, provides a best in class haul of 1,883 LBS, and has a best in class width of 60.4 inches. The roof is capably of holding load rails or roof racks with a weight capacity of over 150 pounds. The 87.2 inch long floor has six normal D-ring tie downs that keep anything in the back from drifting around. There is also an optional flush-fit, non slip vinyl mat for extra grip. Side sliding doors latch into an open position that provides a 26-inch opening, the back is equipped with 60/40 split swing doors. The larger door is located on the drivers side, granting access to larger cargo items without cutting off the path to the curb. The opening radius of each door is 90 degrees. If you need more space, they can be unlocked to a maximum of 180 degrees.

The most important element is under the hood. What type of engine keeps your business running smoothly? Ram claims that this vehicle's performance, fuel economy, power, and torque will “trump any competitor’s standard-equipment package.” I believe them, this commercial van is running the 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine that has best in class 178 horsepower at 6,250 rpm. It's also armed with Chrysler's new nine-speed automatic transmission. This makes gear shifting fluid, stable, and near perfect. With an average highway fuel economy just under 30 MPG, you'll have more time on the road and less time at the gas station.
