2022 Ram 1500 Ensures Trailering Control in Two Hills

May 23,2022

The  2022 Ram 1500  from St. Paul Dodge in Alberta is always up to hauling heavy goods. This sturdy truck combines a durable steel frame with a standard Class IV trailer hitch and critical towing technologies that improve trailing precision when pulling big loads.

All trims of the 2022 Ram 1500 come equipped with standard Trailer Sway Control, which uses sensors to identify an excessively swinging load and take the appropriate actions to stop the movement. When trailer sway is detected, the system applies the brakes to individual wheels to prevent it from rocking. The truck's engine power may also reduce to re-establish control.

The 2022 Ram 1500 also includes Electronic Roll Mitigation, which contributes to safer hauling. This system anticipates potential wheel lift by monitoring steering wheel inputs and the truck's speed. When conditions are likely to create wheel lift, Electronic Roll Mitigation applies appropriate brake pressure and reduces engine power to lessen the chance of a devasting rollover.

Trailer sway can occur in windy conditions and on winding roads. However, other common causes are high speeds and an improperly loaded trailer. For safer towing, always load the heaviest cargo in the front half of the box and never overload the truck or the trailer's maximum gross weight.
