2015 Ford Transit Connect vs 2015 Ram ProMaster City
When you are need of a significant, yet compact, cargo hauling vehicle or a large, customizable passenger option, you can't do much better than the two vans in this lineup. Both the 2015 Ford Transit Connect and the 2015 Ram ProMaster City are excellent minivan options with significant hauling power. Either one can get the job done, offer easy loading and unloading, and be equipped with the latest in rearview camera and rear backup parking sensors, but in the 2015 Ford Transit Connect vs 2015 Ram ProMaster City comparison, the Transit Connect pulls ahead in sheer drivability and comfort options.
Either the 2015 Ford Transit Connect or the 2015 Ram ProMaster City can handle significant loads. The Ford has the choice of two four-cylinder engine options: a 169-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and a 1.6-liter engine producing 173 horsepower. Both the Transit Connect and the ProMaster City have a maximum tow capacity of 2,000 pounds when properly equipped and can carry impressive payload. The Transit does however offer the choice between the standard split swing-out rear door or an optional liftgate access.
Luxuries and technology on the 2015 Ford Transit Connect
Both of these excellent minivans are available in cargo-only van form or passenger-accommodating wagon form, and have two trim levels. The 2015 Ram ProMaster City is available in the top trim with premium cloth upholstery, while the 2015 Ford Transit Connect can boast leather on the most elite trim level. Either minivan has the dimensions to handle easily in city traffic (and to be able to nab that small-ish parking space where a full-size van wouldn't be able to fit) but the Ford with its six-speed automatic transmission offers a somewhat smoother driving experience than its Ram competitor.
When it comes to technology, these two minivans also have impressive features. The 2015 Ford Transit Connect is available with the Ford Sync and MyFord Touch infotainment system which offers hands-free calling, voice controls, Bluetooth compatibility, and an intuitive touchscreen display. The optional infotainment feature on the 2015 Ram ProMaster City is the 5-inch Uconnect which offers many of the same features.
