Most vehicle manufacturers understand the importance of adding safety features to their vehicles. Such safety features aren’t just required by law, they also give vehicle owners peace of mind when they are on the road.
The RAM 1500 has been optimized for safety in every imaginable way. This vehicle is equipped with numerous safety-enhancing features that are sure to keep you and your family safe in various scenarios on the road.
Let’s examine the 2022 RAM 1500’s various safety features.
Blind Spot Monitoring
The Blind Spot Monitoring System is the perfect solution for people who have trouble changing lanes in high-speed situations. This system uses sensors to track objects in your vehicle’s blind spot when you have activated your turn system.
The Blind Spot Monitoring System detects if an object is in your turning pathway and will alert you using both audio and visual alerts. This lets you know when it is or isn’t safe to change to lanes on the highway. Therefore, it helps reduce potential accidents when you are switching lanes on the highway.
This is advantageous in high-speed situations where you need to maintain your focus on the vehicle in front of you while simultaneously changing lanes. The Blind Spot Monitoring system has you covered and will let you know when switching lanes will be dangerous.
Forward Collision Warning System
Forward collisions are one of the leading causes of accidents in North America. After all, it can be difficult to notice when you have been put in a split-second situation where your vehicle is going to collide with another one. Luckily, the 2022 RAM 1500 is equipped with the safety features to detect just this.
The 2022 RAM 1500’s Forward Collision Warning System uses special sensors to track the distance between the vehicles and other objects in front of your vehicle. If it notices that a collision is imminent, it will alert you to it using both visual and audible signals. This gives you an opportunity to take corrective action and reduce potential damage that would occur during the collision.
If you fail to take sufficient corrective action during this moment, the Forward Collision Warning System will trigger the 2022 RAM 1500’s brakes to reduce the magnitude of the damage that occurs when your vehicle collides with another object. This helps keep you and your passengers safe, even in situations where you aren’t able to take full corrective action.
This makes the Blind Spot Monitoring System an invaluable feature that keeps you in the loop regarding potential accidents.
360 Degrees Surround View System
Keeping track of all the objects around your vehicle can be tricky when you’re focused on maintaining your eyes on the road in front of you. However, failing to keep track of all these objects can lead to disaster when you’re cruising at high speeds.
Other cars or stationary objects present collision hazards in your 2022 RAM 1500. You can attempt to look out for each of these objects while turning your head. However, this will take your eyes off the road momentarily.
The 2022 RAM 1500’s 360 Degrees Surround View System helps you tackle such issues by giving you a close look at the various objects around your car. It uses numerous cameras to point out when there are other vehicles or objects in close proximity to your own.
This allows you to detect when it is unsafe to change lanes or slow down your vehicle. Similarly, it will inform you when it is dangerous to overtake a vehicle. Such monitoring allows you to keep yourself and your passengers safe as you’re driving in both suburban neighborhoods and the highway.
The 2022 RAM 1500’s 360 Degrees Surround View System offers a truly exceptional view for drivers in the modern era.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Maintaining a consistent distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you can be tricky when you are cruising on the highway. After all, it’s easy to forget that you are controlling a multi-ton vehicle when you are driving at a consistently high speed on the road. However, a simple lapse in judgement or a moment of distraction could spell disaster for both you and your passengers if you aren’t careful.
The good news is that the 2022 RAM 1500 is equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control that offers assistance in such situations. This system uses sensors to detect the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you on highways.
This system doesn’t inform you when the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you is closing. Instead, it automatically adjusts your vehicle speed to ensure you maintain a consistent safe distance.
This is great for situations when you are having trouble maintaining a consistent speed with a vehicle in front of yours on long highway drives. The 2022 RAM 1500’s Adaptive Cruise Control offers the perfect solution to make things easier for you in such scenarios.
ParkSense Active Park Assist
The 2022 RAM 1500 is a sizable vehicle that can be difficult to park in tight spaces. Luckily, the optional ParkSense Active Park Assist system is here to help you out.
This system uses sensors and cameras on the vehicle’s sides to reduce the stress associated with parallel or perpendicular parking. It can even help you find an appropriate parking spot in situations when you are having trouble finding spaces for your vehicle to fit into.
Once you have found a suitable spot to park your 2022 RAM 1500 into, it will guide you through the necessary maneuvers to get into the right position. This is especially useful for new drivers who need to park in tight spaces but aren’t familiar with the 2022 RAM 1500’s dimensions yet.
This ParkSense Active Park system is the perfect solution for anyone who needs a helping hand with their parking. Consider using this system to squeeze into prime parking spaces whenever you need to.
