Safety is an increasingly important factor in commercial truck purchases as businesses strive to protect their employees and investments while avoiding liability. The new 2019 Ram Chassis Cab is the only truck in the segment to offer an array of active AND passive systems to assist the driver and passengers. In the cab chassis segment, only the 2019 Ram Chassis Cab features active adaptive cruise control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning, automatic emergency braking (AEB) and AEB with trailer brakes available on all trim levels. Additional safety and security systems are geared toward a truck that will spend most of its life at the maximum duty cycle.
Many of the technologies are enhanced, making the 2019 Ram Chassis Cab the most technologically advanced in the segment. For example, a remote camera can be custom-located to view a specific area around an upfit. The new 2019 Chassis Cab also can monitor up to six tires on the truck plus trailer tire pressure monitoring for up to 12 trailer tires. A class-leading Vehicle System Interface Module (VSIM) is capable of communicating between aftermarket modules and truck control modules on more than 70 inputs and outputs, including lighting controls, door position, and throttle and transmission position.
The new Ram Chassis Cab uses a variety of high-strength steels in the frame, body panels and core structure to maximize impact performance and reduce overall weight, including the A-, B- and C-pillars, front structure and door beams. Increased resistance spot welds reduce the heat exposure to surrounding metal to maintain strength and long-term durability.
