2016 Dodge Ram Promaster City
The RAM ProMaster City is a compact commercial van available in cargo and wagon body styles. It was developed solely with business applications in mind. The well-known Fiat Doblo served as the basis for developing the ProMaster City, which has a front-wheel drive and has been upgraded and modified specifically for use in the North American market. It has a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine produces 178 horsepower and is mated to a 9-speed automated gearbox. The 2016 Dodge ProMaster City has swing-out doors in the back and sliding doors on either side of the rear compartment.
The 2016 Dodge Ram Promaster City is offered in 4 trim levels:

Performance and Fuel Economy
A four-cylinder engine of 2.4 liters provides the propulsion for the 2016 Ram ProMaster City. This engine generates 178 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox responsible for powering the front wheels. The combined fuel economy of the 2016 Dodge Ram ProMaster City is predicted to be 24 mpg by the EPA (21 in the city, 29 on the interstate).
The amount of weight that can be carried is assessed at 1,883 pounds. Among the more compact business vehicles, this one comes out on top. You must step up to the Mercedes Metris to get a better payload rating. Towing capacity of 2,000 pounds is the same between the ProMaster City and the Ford Transit Connect when both are properly equipped.
The Ram ProMaster City, typical of smaller business vans, features a straightforward cabin design that emphasizes practicality above aesthetics. There is a good amount of storage space, and all buttons and knobs can be operated with relative ease. Users who will be spending a significant portion of their time in the vehicle will benefit from the availability of the Uconnect interface. Even if a few functions are buried too deep in the menu structure, we’ve grown to like the Uconnect interface available in other Fiat Chrysler cars owing to its clear visuals and rapid reactions to touch inputs.
Cargo and Seating
There is a total of 131.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the front seats of the Ram ProMaster City Cargo model, which is about 9 cubic feet more than the NV200 and around 3 cubic feet more than the Transit Connect. If this quantity of room is insufficient, the bigger Metris comes in at 186 cubic feet. 74.1 cubic feet of room is available behind the second row of seats in the ProMaster City when configured for five passengers. This volume increases to 101.7 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.
Roof Height and Doors
The roof height of 51.8 inches and the distance between the wheel wells of slightly more than 48 inches offer extraordinary mobility for delivery services and mobile workshops, respectively. In addition, the 2016 ProMaster City comes with rear doors that split 60/40. When you first open either door, it will only open to a 90-degree angle; however, after you remove the hinge lock, it will open to a full 180 degrees.
Everything on the interior can be operated easily, even while wearing gloves; this includes the integrated door handle and lock, the controls for the temperature, and the steering wheel. Even if you may have to take off your gloves to use some buttons on the steering wheel or the touchscreen, this vehicle’s control arrangement seems to be more user-friendly than those of its rivals. Cupholders in the doors are big enough to accommodate beverage containers of a commercial grade. Storage bins of varying sizes are strategically arranged to accommodate all of the clutter you have.
