Could you talk about the Ram 1500’s safety features?
Safety, from the work site to the lake, is a top priority for the Ram brand which is why the full-size 1500 pickup offers a variety of safety features and driver aids. Standing out among the rest of the features are lane keeping assist that steers the Ram back into the lane if the truck starts to stray and the surround-view 360-degree camera parking system that grants drivers a bird’s-eye view of the 1500 in tight parking situations. Another great safety feature is adaptive cruise control which allows the driver to set a certain distance from the vehicle ahead and maintain it by adjusting the speed.
