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. The 2016 Dodge Ram ProMaster City also has swing-out doors in the back and sliding doors on either side of the rear compartment.


The 2016 Ram Promaster City is offered in 4 trim levels:

  • Tradesman

The Dodge Ram ProMaster City aims for use typical of smaller business vans. To that end, it features a straightforward cabin design that emphasizes practicality above aesthetics. There is also 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.

ProMaster Van 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.
