2015 Ram Promaster City is ready to take a load off [w/videos]

There are a few segments of the auto industry that are growing rapidly. Weirdly, though, one of the most notable is the compact cargo van market. What use to be the sole terrain of the Ford Transit Connect and the occasional Dodge Grand Caravan-based Ram C/V Tradesman is becoming a notable battleground. Nissan has dove headfirst into the market with its NV200, which will also be sold as a Chevrolet City Express and Ford recently released a heavily redesigned, more user friendly Transit Connect. Now, Ram is releasing its entry into the compact cargo segment.

I hate to say it but the Doblo looks better than the Transit Connect, certainly more upscale with the wrap-around greenhouse and rounded front and flared fenders instead of the dustbuster slope and wide black maw of the Transit Connect. The Ram/Dodge grille insert does look silly. The Ford is just over designed, if they could add a line, crease, or extra trim piece, they did (Ford EU design needs a major kick in the ass).
