The 2022 RAM 1500 Classic features a pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. The system is designed to help prevent collisions, mitigate the severity of a crash and reduce the risk of injury. It also enables you to avoid rear-end collisions by alerting you if you are getting too close to the vehicle ahead on steep grades, slippery roads, or limited visibility. The 2022 RAM 1500 Classic system uses a front camera paired with sensors in the front bumper and side mirrors to scan for vehicles up to 800 feet ahead of the car in both directions. If it detects that your vehicle is about to crash into another one, it will automatically brake for you and minimize the impact. When it senses a possible collision with stationary objects, like trees or poles, it can even help you steer away from them. With this technology in place, drivers have more time to react and take action before an actual accident occurs — giving you peace of mind and helping reduce accidents caused by distracted driving. The system can be turned on or off using a switch on the dashboard, but it is recommended that you leave it on unless you are driving in an area with many false alarms, such as near large trucks. If you turn it off, check your rearview mirror often because this system only works when you have your eyes on the road ahead of you.
