Ram 1500 Safety Review
What do you look for in a new truck to take through the streets of Ontario, Wayne County, and Sodus? Some may prioritize towing capacity while others are more concerned with having as much horsepower as they can get out of their engine. No matter what your preferences are, one of the most important aspects of any new truck is safety.
Trucks are safer than they’ve ever been, but the new Ram 1500 stands out as a shining example of everything truck safety should be. With reliable construction and numerous additional safety features, it’s easy to see why this truck has become so popular. Learn more in our comprehensive Ram 1500 safety review.
Engineered for Safety
The new Ram 1500 was built to keep you and your passengers safe even down to the chassis itself. It’s made from high-strength steel that’s designed to direct kinetic energy from collisions around the cabin rather than straight through it. In fact, 98 percent of the Ram 1500’s frame is made from high-strength steel, making this the strongest 1500 model ever.
As you might expect, there’s also an advanced airbag system implemented in this truck. With six airbags standard, you and your passengers can ride with peace of mind. Although, you may be able to avoid collisions altogether thanks to the 14.9-inch brakes in the front and 14.8-inch brakes in the back. As the largest in its class, these brakes can bring your truck to a stop in shorter distances.
You’ll find plenty of new technology in the Ram 1500, but its safety tech is truly remarkable. Opt for the available 360-degree surround-view camera, and you can get a bird’s eye view of your truck, always knowing what’s around you. This can make parking a breeze, but so can the available parallel and perpendicular park assist system. Steering is controlled automatically, so you just have to handle shifting, accelerating, and braking.
Even more driver assistance features are available with the new Ram 1500 such as Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist. Should this system detect a potential collision ahead, it will apply the brakes for you to help avoid it. Additionally, you can enjoy the Lane Departure Warning Plus feature, which not only alerts you if you drift out of your lane without signaling, but it can automatically edge you back into place.
This Ram truck also has plenty of entertainment technology! Check out the full 2019 Ram 1500 review to learn more!
Towing capacity is one of the most sought-after and acclaimed features with the new Ram 1500, but you need to make sure you’re safe if you plan to take advantage. Sway control systems allow you to keep your trailer under control, but that’s just the beginning of what this Ram can do to keep your haul safe.
With the Ram 1500 blind-spot monitoring, Rear Cross Path, and Trailer Detection, you’ll always know the potential dangers around your trailer. With these systems, you’ll receive alerts should any other vehicle or obstacle get near your truck or your trailer. It accounts for the length of the trailer automatically, so you’ll always have full knowledge of your surroundings.
