2020 Ram ProMaster City Passenger Wagon Review: The Cheap Tickets

The 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon is the smallest passenger van offered by the truck maker in the USA, seating five occupants in this continuation of the first-generation model. This bare-bones little people mover is a solid option for moving people in and around city centers and delivers impressive fuel economy, but its naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, which develops 178 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque, is rather uninspiring. It might not provide much in terms of features, but that means that it undercuts competitors like the Ford Transit Connect and Mercedes-Benz Metris by a fair margin, and with a ton of cabin space and a comfy ride, this little people carrier might just have what it takes.

Engine and Transmission

This little vehicle is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter 'Tigershark' gasoline engine that develops 178 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque - the epitome of modest performance. Power is sent to a front-wheel drive system via an utterly disappointing 9-speed automatic that acts like an eight-speed in reality. The 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon has a maximum towing capacity of 1,914 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,760 pounds. Fully loaded, this van will struggle to overtake on the highway but can keep up with traffic in the city.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon a good van?

We remember a time where minivans and SUVs were not considered status symbols, but these days even a Chrysler Voyager packs a hefty price tag and an impressive list of standard features. That's where the 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon steps in. This entry-level people mover is Ram's smallest van offering and impresses with interior space and fuel economy figures that best competitors such as the Ford Transit Connect and Mercedes-Benz Metris, but doesn't boast any greater reliability than its compatriots. Unfortunately, the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder is underpowered, and the nine-speed automatic transmission is somewhat hopeless. There's not much in terms of standard features, and there's not much in the way of driver aids, but that's all forgotten when you take a look at the price tag. It's worth noting that its competitors offer much more for a price increase that won't ruin you.

🚗What 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon Should I Buy?

Possibly the biggest positive apparent in this review of the 2020 Ram ProMaster City Wagon is its price, which is remarkably affordable, but with so little difference between the base model and the SLT, you might as well stretch for more comfort. This trim adds features such as more seat adjustability and cruise control. We'd recommend going for the optional Popular Equipment Group, which adds a six-speaker sound system and heated front seats. We'd also go for a set of rear parking sensors to make city living a tad easier.
