Ford Motor Company and Driverge
Driverge is proud to have been a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) since Ford started the program. This creates a higher standard by undergoing annual audits from Ford, and ensuring no vehicle leaves our lot without meeting or exceeding FMVSS, NHTSA, ADA and Ford’s standards. For 15 years running, Driverge has been awarded by Ford as their #1 Mobility Pool which means we have built more commercial wheelchair vans on Ford chassis than any other builder in America. In fact, there are more full-size commercial wheelchair vans on the road today built by Driverge than anyone else.
As an official Ford Bailment Pool, we typically have over 400 vans on our lot ready for an upfit. With our manufacturing facilities in Kansas City and Akron, OH near Ford plants, we are part of the Ford Ship-Thru system. Dealership can have a fully upfitted Ford Transit from our KC facility or a Transit Connect from our Akron facility shipped directly to them at significant savings using Ford’s rail system.
Mercedes-Benz and Driverge
Driverge is recognized as a Mercedes-Benz Master Solutions Upfitter. The classification is only given to a few qualified manufacturers that are experts in their respective fields. With the Master Solutions designation, upfit configurations can be ordered directly from a Mercedes-Benz dealer. Driverge is the only Master Solutions Upfitter that specializes in creating people mover vehicles.
FCA/RAM and Driverge
Driverge is a Ram Commercial Q-Pro supplier. This select group of vehicle upfitters and manufacturers are dedicated to exceeding customer's expectations. The Q-Pro Quality Professional Program allocates FCA/Ram Engineering resources to survey, make recommendations and certify upfitter products. Those companies that are validated must meet their highest standards in four key areas, including:
- Quality, reliability, and durability
- Regulatory compliance
- Standardized process controls
- Warranty and continuous improvement
Q Pro validation is great for businesses looking to purchase vehicles by allowing them to trust what they are buying and to know the upfit will work with their Ram vehicle.
