2020 Ram 1500 Safety Features
While you’re out getting the job done, you want to make sure that your truck can provide you and everyone you have onboard with a safe ride. The 1500 certainly has you covered here.
The available Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection is one of the features that really bring this point out the most. Not only does it warn you when a vehicle is in one of your blind spots or behind you when you’re in reverse, it’s even able to take the trailer that you’re hauling behind you into consideration.
The also available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning-Plus can be a big help when you’re towing as well. If it detects that you have inadvertently drifted out of your lane, it will let you know that this is occurring and guide the vehicle back.
