Ram 1500 Safety Features
Obviously, when you’re looking for a truck, the first aspects you’re looking for are power, capability, and performance. When push comes to shove, you need a vehicle that’ll get the job done the right way.
However, the next element you’re looking for is safety. After all, none of that demanding work even matters if you and your passengers aren’t safe. That’s where the 2017 Ram 1500 comes in; it’s quite the safe pickup truck.
Our truck experts here at Peake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT wrote this review of the 2017 Ram 1500’s safety features for our hardworking customers in Rochester, Wayne County, Sodus, and the nearby areas.
Sturdy Construction: Impressive Frame Steel Strength
Everything about the Ram 1500’s safety features starts with its protective construction. With a mighty frame steel strength of 50,000 PSI, along with a hydroformed tubular front frame unit and eight ultra-tough crossmembers, this pickup is highly capable of sustaining a severe impact. With this kind of top-notch construction, you’ll stay safe.
2017 Ram 1500’s Advanced Occupant Protection
However, its durable build is just the start; the 1500 is equipped with a host of advanced technologies.
Four-Wheel Disc Antilock Brakes. They prevent unexpected wheel lockup while driving on slick surfaces.
Side-Curtain Airbags. These high-tech airbags will deploy downward and cover the 1500’s side windows.
Side-Impact Door Beams. Working in conjunction with the side-curtain airbags, they absorb more force.
Electronic Stability Control. There are several components to this innovative system: Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control, Rain Brake Support, Brake Assist, and Ready Alert Braking. It’s the total package.
Dynamic Front Crumple Zones. It’s just another way that the Ram 1500 bears the brunt of a collision.
A Few Additional Features
Last, but certainly not least, we’ll cover a few of the 2017 Ram 1500’s miscellaneous safety features. Check it out!
ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera. Finally, you can see what’s going on behind you as you reverse. Ram puts it perfectly. This camera “makes parking a breeze and takes the guesswork out of backing up to a trailer.”
ParkSense® Front Park Assist System. Six front bumper sensors will send out ultrasonic waves as you’re driving forward at low speeds (i.e. pulling into a parking spot). Then, it’ll convey your proximity with visual/audible alerts.
Not only does Ram protect you, but they protect their trucks as well. The 2017 1500 comes with a Five-Year/100,000-Mile Diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty. In terms of the Light-Duty Pickup Segment, this warranty is completely unsurpassed. It shows you exactly how much faith they have in their truck.
