New 2016 RAM ProMaster City at Fletcher Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Franklin, IN
When RAM released their ProMaster City commercial van, it instantly earned acclaim with small businesses due to its economical powertrain, and versatile cargo area. The 2016 ProMaster City continues in the tradition of offering a versatile experience for a variety of businesses. Some of the acclaimed aspects of the ProMaster City will include best-in-class payload ratings, an efficient yet powerful engine, and a cargo area that can be configured in many ways, whether for cargo or passengers. For 2016, the model has received a standard Bluetooth system (late availability). Another interesting addition has been a new carpet, which has a thicker-pile design, which works to lessen interior noise.
Under the ProMaster City's Hood
The standard powertrain found in every ProMaster City is aided by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It is linked to a front-wheel drive system, and an innovative nine-speed automatic transmission. Power outputs are particularly impressive, with the ProMaster City offering 178 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. The van has a maximum payload capacity of 1,883 pounds, which is the best rating among small commercial vans. The van also has a great towing maximum of 2,000 pounds, when it is properly equipped. The ProMaster City comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels. Optional powertrain packages will include a towing package with a Class III hitch, a remote start system, and a Light and Wheels group, which will provide drivers with 16-inch alloy wheels and foglights.
