The Dodge Ram 1500 was the 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and that’s what drives us to talk about the safety features of this beast. Let’s understand the top safety features of this model:
- Crash prevention
The new Ram 1500 Crew Cab model comes packaged with optional front crash prevention. In addition, Adaptive LED Projector Headlamps are also available, which were built post-May 2019. This feature has precisely been named as a 2019 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
- Towing features
All 2020 Ram 1500 models are equipped with blind spot monitoring with rear cross path and trailer detection, which ensure that the vehicle is protected even on the blind spot zones on the sides as well as behind it. The length of the trailer is accounted for, thanks to these features, when maneuvering and taking blind turns.
- Lane Departure Warning–Plus
A visual alert is provided by the available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning–Plus when the vehicle is taking unintentional and unsafe drifts on lanes. The technology guides the vehicle safely back to the particular lane, allowing less room for drifting.
- Smart cruising
Adaptive cruise control detects the vehicles in front and comes with a feature called Stop and Go, but this feature is only for the driver’s convenience and should not be considered as a substitute for their active involvement. In addition, forward collision warning works actively with advanced brake assist in the Dodge Ram 1500, ensuring that the pickup stops or slows down within safe distance if there is a vehicle in front.
- Guided parking
Both parallel as well as perpendicular parking assist systems are available to provide the driver with the best assistance during parking. The overall functionality of parking, including gear position, brake, and the accelerator is guided and the steering is controlled automatically. Having said that, the driver should be alert and active at all times while driving.
- 360-degree camera
A 360-degree Surround View Camera provides a complete picture of vehicles and other obstructions to the driver, allowing them to park, load, and unload with ease. This feature also helps one in hooking up a trailer safely.
- Strong body
Dodge Ram 1500 has an extremely sturdy frame, and 98% of the steel is high-strength steel, which means it can absorb the impact in case of a collision.
