The 2019 Ram ProMaster City is available in four trim levels consisting of two models matched to two trims – the Tradesman and Tradesman SLT Cargo Van, and the Passenger Wagon and Wagon SLT.

The standard 2.4-liter engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and, when optimized by the variable valve timing system included in the engine, the Ram ProMaster City averages 21 mpg in the city and a best-in-class highway fuel economy of 28 mpg. Together, that gives the ProMaster City a best-in-class highway driving range of 448 miles.
Additionally, the 2019 Ram ProMaster City has a maximum payload capacity of 1,883 pounds, so consumers have the freedom to fill up their cargo van with plenty of equipment and tools. Additionally, the Ram ProMaster City features a class-exclusive bi-link rear coil suspension that makes for a more comfortable and smoother ride even when the payload capacity is at its max.
