2020 RAM 1500 for sale 

What are the Safety Features of the 2020 Ram 1500?

In an automotive market that seems to be forever in love with the pickup truck, customers from all walks of life have come to expect from trucks features that not long ago were only available on upscale luxury sedans. As the focus of manufacturers has shifted towards providing customers with the safest driving experience possible, it is not uncommon for a prospective buyer of a new truck to be acutely interested in the safety features it offers. Ram has always stayed ahead of the curve in this regard, and the new 2020 Ram 1500 is no exception.

Ram has kitted out the new 2020 Ram 1500 for sale in Kansas City with an impressive array of safety features designed to make the experience behind the wheel as worry-free as possible.

Does the 2020 Ram 1500 Have Blind Spot Monitoring?

One of the most important features added to the 2020 model is the advanced Blind Spot Monitoring system, which also has Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection. Owners who use their 1500 Ram for towing will find this new feature more than welcome as now the vehicle is able to take into consideration the length of an attached trailer when monitoring blind spot areas, thus ensuring the safe operation of the whole truck-trailer assembly.

Does the 2020 Ram 1500 Have an Automated Parking System?

Not long ago, pickup truck owners watched in envy as smaller vehicles benefitted from automated parking systems. This is no longer the case. The 2020 Ram 1500 now features automated parallel and perpendicular parking. Gone are the times where the driver has to worry about dents and scratches when loaning the truck to his high school kids that are just getting the hang of parking properly.

Does the 2020 Ram 1500 Have a Lane Departure Warning System?

Safety and comfort seem to be key for the 2020 model year, as features like Lane Departure Warning Plus and Smart Cruising have been added to the already impressive feature lineup without ramping up the 2020 Ram 1500 price.

Pickup truck owners who often find themselves on long roads will benefit from these new features that make driving more pleasant and safe. Lane Departure Warning Plus will not only alert the driver when they are unintentionally drifting between lanes, but will also gently guide the vehicle via a small steering input back to its original lane.

Smart Cruising is Ram's name for an advanced adaptive cruise control system that is capable of operating in stop and go traffic. With Smart Cruising comes the Forward Collision Warning that will provide visual and sound alerts for the driver regarding an impending collision, and the Advanced Brake Assist that will automatically brake the vehicle in order to maintain a safe distance from traffic ahead.

Does the 2020 Ram 1500 Have a 360-Degree Camera?

With reverse cameras becoming mandatory, Ram takes the vision one step further, fitting the 2020 Ram 1500 with a 360-degree camera system that is designed to assist the driver in all types of situations, from parking to hooking up a trailer. The views available are impressive, catering to drivers maneuvering the vehicle in tight spots as well as to drivers interested in what's going on with their load (there's actually a camera available for monitoring the bed).

Is the 2020 Ram 1500 Safe?

Gadgets aside, it is worth knowing that Ram's focus on safety is not just about making the driver more aware of his or her surroundings but in fact is a concept that has been built into the vehicle from the ground up. Almost all of the steel used in the structure of the Ram 1500, 98 percent to be exact, is high-strength steel, making the pickup one of the strongest in its class.

Large vehicles are inherently safe, but stopping one is a more difficult job than it would be in the case of, for example, a small family sedan. Well, not for the Ram 1500. The owner of the new model can have full confidence in his brakes, as the Ram comes equipped as standard with the largest brakes fitted on a similar-class vehicle, the new 14.9-inch Ram brakes.

In case the worst was unavoidable and it has happened, the 2020 Ram 1500 will protect its occupants with the help of its six airbags that are fitted as standard to every vehicle sold. The system is one of the most advanced ones available nowadays on the market, as it is able to adapt the airbag cushion depending on the size of the occupant and the severity of the crash itself. This protects the driver and passengers in the event of a crash.

Does the 2020 Ram 1500 Handle Well?

It may be uncommon for features like air suspension to be linked to safety, but some consider them to influence safety quite a bit. A vehicle handling the Kansas and Missouri streets well is a safe vehicle and the air suspension available on the 2020 Ram 1500 vastly improves its handling both on-road and off-road, while also being able to compensate, via Automatic Load Leveling, for a large load placed in the truck's bed.

The above are some of the most important safety features that you can find on the 2020 Ram 1500 for sale on the Miracle Mile, a vehicle that takes things a step further when it comes to providing driving confidence. It is a pickup truck that can be used by everyone, that is easy and most of all, and safe to drive and operate.

The Ram 1500 with this new 2020 model is at least on par with all of its competitors in the pickup segment, not only in styling and performance, but most importantly in the active and passive safety features included in its packages.
