The new Ram 1500 comes packed with all the latest features. From the choice between several different types of powerful engines to the multifunction tailgate and impressive interior dashboard display, there is something in this truck for everyone to love. However, one aspect you’re likely especially interested in is the safety and security features.
Everyone wants to drive a vehicle that’s safe and secure, and the Ram 1500 covers all your needs in this regard. The new 2021 model is currently one of the safest vehicles out there. Below are some of the safety and security features you can expect to find on the 2021 Ram 1500. After reviewing these features, you’ll be convinced of your safety whenever you drive it.
Blind-spot monitoring allows you to see obstacles alongside your vehicle that are normally hard to notice. As you’re driving, there is a certain spot on each side of your car, known as a blind spot, where other vehicles can’t be seen, making it dangerous to change lanes without checking these spots. Rather than turning your head and craning your neck to ensure it’s safe, blind-spot monitoring checks this area for you using sensors mounted on the outside of your vehicle. Now you can change lanes safely and reduce the chance of an accident.
Lane Departure Monitoring
With its lane departure monitoring system, the Ram 1500 uses cameras to track the lane markings. It can then sense when you are drifting out of your lane and alert you using sounds and visual notifications. The purpose of the lane departure monitoring system is to alert drivers who have lost their attention on the road.
Sometimes a driver may become tired or distracted while driving and not notice that they are swerving into another lane. This system alerts the driver of their danger so that they can correct it before causing an accident.
Using sensors at the front of the vehicle, the Ram 1500 can apply the brakes for you if you come too close to another object. This system is known as smart braking and its purpose is to prevent accidents and reduce the need for brake service. The smart braking system works in a variety of situations, whether you are in traffic or trying to pull into a tight parking space, helping to keep your truck safe at all times.
As anyone who has owned a truck before knows, sometimes parking can be difficult due to the size of the truck. With the Ram 1500’s guided parking system, you’ll have a much easier time navigating into tight spots. It uses sensors to detect the surroundings, then directs the driver to use either the gas or brake while the system controls the steering. All you need to do is line up the car next to the spot you want, activate the system, and let the truck guide you. No more worrying about parallel parking on the street or turning into a tight spot inside a parking garage.
Advanced Air Bag Protection
The Ram 1500 comes with advanced air bag protection. Not only do these air bags protect you in the event of an accident, but they do so in a way that is designed to minimize injuries on impact with adaptive venting technology. This technology takes into account the severity of the crash and the number of occupants when deploying the air bag for maximum safety.
There are six total air bags on board, covering the entirety of the cabin and providing protection to all your passengers. Give yourself peace of mind knowing your truck has some of the best air bags available.
On the Ram 1500, you’ll find the largest brakes in its class. These large brakes provide the ultimate stopping power, giving you and your passengers even more protection. Even if you are towing something heavy, these advanced brakes will give you the protection you need to stop quickly and safely.
Electronic Stability Control
For those of you who plan on towing with your Ram 1500, you’ll love the included electronic stability control. According to Dodge, the purpose of the electronic stability control is to avoid the loss of control that can be caused by insufficient traction when towing.
What this means is that the electronic stability control helps to correct for oversteering and understeering by retaining control of the brakes. It analyzes when you oversteer or understeer and applies the brakes to the appropriate wheel as necessary to get you back on track. This makes towing with the Ram 1500 safer, regardless of what you are towing or where you are taking it.
Tire Pressure Monitoring
Having the correct air pressure within your tires is an essential element when it comes to safety. The right tire pressure provides maximum efficiency and protects against flat tires. The Ram 1500 comes with a tire pressure monitoring system, which allows the driver to keep an eye on tire pressure at all times. If the pressure is too low or too high, the driver receives an alert so that they can correct the situation.
All Secure Locking System
Finally, there is the All Secure locking system in the Ram 1500. This locking system not only protects the interior of your vehicle while you’re away but also protects the cargo boxes on your truck. Protect your vehicle and your belongings at all times by getting a truck with an all-around locking system.
