February 7, 2019

, Auburn Hills, Mich.

Safety is an increasingly vicious cause in blurb lorry purchases as businesses essay to strengthen their employees and investments while avoiding liability. The new 2019 Ram Chassis Cab is a usually lorry in a shred to offer an array of active AND pacifist systems to support a motorist and passengers. In a cab framework segment, usually a 2019 Ram Chassis Cab facilities active adaptive journey control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning, involuntary puncture braking (AEB) and AEB with trailer brakes accessible on all trim levels. Additional reserve and confidence systems are geared toward a lorry that will spend many of a life during a extent avocation cycle.

Many of a technologies are enhanced, creation a 2019 Ram Chassis Cab a many technologically modernized in a segment. For example, a remote camera can be custom-located to viewpoint a specific area around an upfit. The new 2019 Chassis Cab also can ensure adult to 6 tires on a lorry and trailer tire vigour monitoring for adult to 12 trailer tires. A class-leading Vehicle System Interface Module (VSIM) is able of communicating between aftermarket modules and lorry control modules on some-more than 70 inputs and outputs, including lighting controls, doorway position, and stifle and delivery position.

The new Ram Chassis Cab uses a accumulation of high-strength steels in a frame, physique panels and core structure to maximize impact opening and revoke altogether weight, including a A-, B- and C-pillars, front structure and doorway beams. Increased insurgency mark welds revoke a feverishness bearing to surrounding steel to say strength and long-term durability.

Safety and Security Features on 2019 Ram Chassis Cab
