Ram 2500 Safety Features

When you're on the job, safety is always our number one priority, and the same should go for your work truck.

In this Ram 2500 safety features review, our team at Freehold Dodge takes a closer look at the standard and available safety systems inside this famous line of trucks so you and our other Farmingdale and Monroe Township customers can learn more about how the 2500 is keeping drivers and passengers safe.

Before we dive into trim level specifics, let's go over the safety features we'll be focusing on:

  • Three reflecting triangles: In the event of an emergency, place these reflective triangles around the truck to make it more visible to other motorists. 
  • Advanced multi-stage front airbags: These sophisticated airbags can sense the severity of an impact and inflate accordingly.  
  • Center high-mount stop lamp with camera: Via a camera in the third brake light, you can keep an eye on the contents of the truck bed through a display on the auto-dimming rearview mirror.
  • DOT fire extinguisher: This convenient Department of Transportation fire extinguisher is perfect for unexpected emergencies while on the road.
  • Electronic Stability Control: This system takes anti-lock brakes, Traction Control, and a stability system to give you front-wheel drive capability with rear-wheel drive performance. The system uses selective braking and torque reduction to provide maximum control.  
  • ParkSense Rear Park Assist System: Using sound waves and ultrasonic sensors, this system can help you safely back into a spot. As you get closer to objects behind the vehicle, an audible warning will sound, increasing in frequency as you get closer to the object. The system can be turned off, which is helpful when towing.  
  • ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera: A discreet camera located near the tailgate handle provides you with a live video feed of what's behind your truck. When you shift into reverse, the live feed appears on the in-vehicle display.
  • Supplemental front seat-mounted side airbags and side-curtain airbags: These airbags provide additional protection for you and your passengers.
  • Tire pressure monitoring display: This helps you keep an eye on the air pressure in your tires to maximize traction, stability, and fuel economy.

Ram 2500 Tradesman Safety Features

In the Tradesman Regular Cab, you'll find the advanced multi-stage front airbags along with supplemental front seat-mounted side airbags and side-curtain front airbags. The tire pressure monitoring display and Electronic Stability Control help to keep you in control while navigating hazardous roads. 

There are a few optional features that can be added to the Tradesman Crew Cab, such as the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System and the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera. The Crew Cab will also add supplemental side-curtain rear airbags for your backseat passengers.

Ram 2500 SLT Safety Features

The SLT takes safety to the next level by adding a few more optional features. You'll still get the same Electronic Stability Control and airbag system found in the Tradesman as well as the tire pressure monitoring display. However, you'll also have the option of adding the reflective safety triangles, the center high-mounted stop lamp with camera, and the DOT fire extinguisher. All of these features are available with the Crew Cab and Mega Cab with the addition of supplemental side-curtain rear airbags.

Lone Star, Big Horn, and Laramie Safety Features

The Lone Star and the Big Horn offer the same standard and optional safety features as we saw in the SLT, but there's no Regular Cab option. The last 2500 trim level is the Laramie. Coming exclusively in a Mega Cab, this truck features an advanced multi-stage airbag system, Electronic Stability Control, the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera, and a tire pressure monitoring display.
