|Will Google follow this type of link?|

We are looking at buying a canned web site complete with products.
A typical link to a product looks like this:
Will Google be able / willing to follow this link and index the page?
I don't think we have a choice and the web site comes this way.
Are there programming alternatives to passing these variables in the URL

Right, those are two of the common alternatives. And yes, even without rewriting those urls Google can follow the link - two parameters in the query string is not a problem.
Just be sure that those URLs point either to unique content or return a 404 status when ANYTHING changes, even the order of the paramters.
