The Ford Transit Connect, Chevrolet City Express, and Nissan NV200 are all transit van competitors of the 2017 Dodge Ram ProMaster City. For various reasons, transit vans are gaining in popularity: they’re convenient, adaptable, and reasonably priced. Good ones are made by Chrysler, Chevrolet, Ford, and Nissan. In the beginning, they served as commercial vehicles used by plumbers, floral delivery guys, and other tradespeople. For the same reasons that they function for carpenters, they may be used as private cars. They’re nimble and efficient, primarily designed to transport goods.


The 2017 DODGE RAM PROMASTER is offered in 2 trim levels:

  • Low Roof
  • Base

Performance and Fuel Economy

“Urban nimble” is how one reviewer characterized the Fiat-Chrysler 2017 Dodge ProMaster City. Due to the ProMaster City’s compact size and maneuverability, this is the case; it has a comfortable ride and plenty of power thanks to the engine and transmission. A four-cylinder Tigershark engine powers the 2.4-liter Tigershark. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic gearbox to drive the front wheels. At 3,800 revolutions per minute, this engine generates 174 lb-ft of torque, which translates to 178 hp. The ProMaster City is the most powerful compact van in its class. The EPA estimates a city/highway fuel efficiency value of 21 mpg. The ProMaster City is also the best-in-class fuel-economy vehicle in its class. Lastly, the 2017 Dodge RAM ProMaster City has the greatest payload rating in its class at 1,833 pounds. Additionally, the ProMaster City can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly outfitted.

Interior Capacity

The inside of a work van is the most significant aspect. What’s the purpose if it can’t hold what you need it to? The Promaster City’s 131.7 cubic feet of storage capacity is the greatest in the industry. You won’t have to return to the store because you don’t have what you need since you have more room. Between the tire wells of this Ram cargo van, there are more than four feet of space. As a result, your plywood will slot right in, and the second row of chairs may be added if more people are needed.

Low-Loading Floor and Towing Capacity

The low loading floor makes it easy to reach the large cargo space. For example, the new AC unit you’re installing is now simpler to install in the van than ever before at 21.5 inches. The Promaster City’s best-in-class payload capacity is combined with a low-loading floor. The 1,883 lb weight capacity allows you to stow away many gears. You may also use Promaster City’s massive towing capacity to bring something much heavier to the worksite. Moreover, the roof can accommodate 150 pounds of 2×4, PVC, or any other material you need to increase storage capacity.

Back Door Design

You may note that the back doors open in a 60/40 split, allowing you to retrieve your gear without obstructing access to the curb. If you’re loading or unloading when the vehicle is parked on a slope, you won’t have to worry about the doors shutting since they’re asymmetrical. To maintain as much cargo space as possible when installing your van’s internal modifications, the inside walls are almost vertical when the doors are opened.

You may add a best-in-class payload, space between the wheel wells, and maximum cargo space to the list. Less frequent fill-ups are possible because of the vehicle’s highway fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon. The Promaster City helps you save money by requiring just one oil change every 10,000 miles. In addition to saving money on repairs, front-wheel-drive vehicles are also more environmentally friendly. As a result, fewer components must be transferred from the engine to the rear axle. No rear differential indicates that. Simply put, less maintenance equals lower costs.
