Ram Commercial Trucks Introduce 2 New Programs to Help Dealers and Buyers

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.

Ram Works Hard to Keep Up With ProMaster Demand

RPM_mg_95258b1pa3bga24rkqsgv82s9lb67u__mid

New Yorkers are loving the Ram ProMaster. It seems that Ram just can’t keep up with the demand!

Ram Commercial Truck brand hosted a special one-day dealer drive-away event for truck dealers in the New York Area. The dealers came in to pick up dozens of the ProMaster to get them back to the dealerships in order to meet the high demand. Ram is having trouble keeping up with what can only be described as unprecedented demand and wanted to make a show of their effort to keep up with giving people what they want.

The ProMaster has been having an amazing sale streak for the past few months. Februray, March, and April set records for Ram’s Commercial Trucks and the brand as a whole has been on the rise for demand and popularity.

It’s hard not to see why. The ProMaster is perfectly suited for a city like New York. Many businesses need to be mobile, but also need something that is comfortable to drive in the crowded streets. The ProMaster offers the best of both worlds. It is easy to see why any small, or large, business operating in New York would want to get their hands on one of these.

2017 Ram Power Wagon Feature Shows New Tire-Inspired Interior Design

ram_powerwagon1b9g8mpo3ghl60jvovlnvn7nv9e__mid

The 2017 Ram Truck Power Wagon is one of the most highly anticipated trucks coming out.  Ram announced it at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show and since then, people have been ready to see as many pictures and details as they could.  Like many recent products from the Chrysler family line-up, the Power Wagon is a nostalgic look-back at the history of Ram trucks.

The exterior design is a tribute to the 1980 “Macho Power Wagon” which can be seen on all the features of the 2017 Power Wagon.  It is in the wheels, the colors, and even in the new grille on the front.

The interior of the Power Wagon, however, led to a challenge for the design team at Ram.  In a new feature on the upcoming 2017 Ram Power Wagon, the interior design team discusses how they came up with many of the choices that are included in Power Wagon.  Teaming up with Sage Automotive Interiors, the two teamed-up and came up with a solution to the dilemma of what to base the design on.  It’s the tires; the Goodyear DuraTrac Tires.  Check out the video to see how they were able to translate the look of the tires into a unique interior design for the 2017 Power Wagon.

The 2017 Ram Truck Power Wagon is slated to be released in the 4th quarter of 2016.  If you’re interested in learning more about it, then contact us at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge.  View our new and used line-up on our website.  Be sure to download our mobile app to keep track in real time of your vehicle when it is brought in to be serviced.  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to us on YouTube to see more auto news and monthly specials.

Ram ProMaster Takes on the Ike Gauntlet

Ram-ProMaster-City-drivers-side-profile

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.
