Lanesense® Lane Departure Warning. When you’re using your Ram 1500 for towing, you want to make sure you’re utilizing every tool at your disposal to ensure you and your cargo arrive safely. This is where the available Lanesense® Lane Departure Warning comes in. It monitors your position in relation to the lane markers on the road and warns you in the event you begin to drift too close to those boundaries.
Forward Collision Warning Plus. This available safety feature uses audio and visual alerts to warn you when you’re getting too close to the vehicle directly ahead of you. It can also apply the brakes if it determines that a collision is otherwise unavoidable.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. The standard Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go feature maintains a predetermined distance from the next vehicle and can slow the truck down and speed back up accordingly.
