Ram Commercial is introducing a program to aid both dealers and drivers. The two new programs will help commercial drivers view, certify, and install a wide range of truck-mounted products. The two program names are Ram Augmented Reality Upfit Configurator and Q Pro. Both of these programs look to give Ram Commercial Trucks an edge in a crowded and growing market.
The Ram Augmented Reality Upfit Configurator is a new program that as introduced at the end of 2016. It is a computer-generated visual program that lets dealers and buyers have a virtual look around a truck and view their upgrades. The program originally was only offered for the ProMaster but it has now been expanded to cover the ProMaster City and the Ram Chassis Cab lineup.
The Q Pro program is a new qualification process for upfitters to certify their product with Ram Engineering. It provides resources to survey, make recommendations and certify upfitter products. Once an upfitter gets certified, the Ram Q Pro will then help to market their products to customers all while they know they’re getting products that meet Ram Commercial’s rigorous standards.

The Ram ProMaster is Ram’s newest entry into one of the hottest markets in cars right now; the commercial truck segment. The ProMaster City is designed to be a smaller van for smaller businesses that need large amounts of equipment or product trucked across a busy city like New York. The ProMaster City also has been chosen by The Fast Lane Truck to tackle their Ike Gauntlet extreme towing test. It is the first commercial van to attempt this, so let’s see how it turned out.
In a video uploaded to their YouTube channel, they run their viewers through the engine and drive of the ProMaster City. Of note in their drive on the route, the ProMaster City easily handled with the towing cart hooked up behind it and offered amazing visibility with its mirrors, being able to see all around comfortably while keeping eyes on the trailer.
All along the route, the drivers were impressed with what the ProMaster City had to offer. With the size and the weight, they weren’t sure what to expect. It is clear by the end, however, that Ram had convinced them of the quality of their commercial cargo van. Be sure to check out the full video to see how the ProMaster City handles itself.
