After a few changes for 2019, such as the availability of a Fleet Telematics system and the addition of a new RAM corporate grille, the ProMaster City receives no changes for 2020. See the 2020 Ram ProMaster City models for sale near you
While the 2020 Ram ProMaster City has its merits as a cargo van, buyers looking for a passenger van should look elsewhere, namely to the Ford Transit Connect, which is a much more well-rounded offering. As far as the cargo van goes, we'd spend the extra $1,300 for the SLT trim, as features such as power mirrors and cruise control will certainly be appreciated during long days on the job. Altogether, the ProMaster City's strongest selling points are its fuel efficient engine and spacious cargo area -- just make sure you check out the other vehicles we mentioned above before deciding whether or not it's the right van for your specific needs.

The ProMaster City is available in two different variations. The cargo van version, officially dubbed the ProMaster City Tradesman, features only two front seats and no rear side windows. The passenger model, which Ram refers to as the ProMaster City Wagon, offers a second-row bench seat and second-row rear side windows, and it costs about $1,300 more than its Tradesman counterpart.
Both the Wagon and the Tradesman offer two trim levels -- a base model and a relatively upscale SLT trim -- which share roughly the same equipment. All prices listed in this article include the $1,595 factory delivery charge.
Base-level ProMaster City models ($25,890 for the Tradesman, $27,740 for the Wagon) include only basic convenience features, including keyless entry, power windows, air conditioning, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth, a backup camera, Chrysler's Uconnect 3 with a 5-in touchscreen, a 4-speaker stereo, and USB and iPod connectivity, among a few other frills. It also includes the new Fleet Telematics feature.
Stepping up to the ProMaster City SLT ($27,640 for the Tradesman, $29,390 for the Wagon) nets you a few additional features, including body-color bumpers and power/heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control and a navigation system -- though it's delivered through that same tiny 5-in screen.
The SLT offers one major options package: the Lights and Wheels Group, which adds 16-in alloy wheels and fog lights. Available on all trims are rear parking sensors, remote start, satellite radio capability, a Wi-Fi hot spot and a full-size spare tire. Other options include a rear wiper, various roof-rack and rail configurations and partitions that separate the front seats from the cargo area.

2020 Ford Transit Connect -- The Transit Connect is the ProMaster City's chief rival. It offers similar pricing, fuel economy, engine power and sizing. You'll want to drive the Ford before you sign the papers on a Ram, as the Ford offers a lot of the features found in passenger vehicles, such as automatic emergency braking and a 6.5-in touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
2020 Nissan NV200 -- Built on the same platform as the Nissan Sentra compact sedan, the NV200 is another major competitor to the ProMaster City. Pricing is lower, but the NV200 is also smaller than both the ProMaster City and the Transit Connect.
Used Ram ProMaster 1500 -- If you need something a little bigger than the ProMaster City, consider a used ProMaster 1500. It's a larger FWD van and offers more power, more room and more capability overall compared with the ProMaster City.
