The 7-inch customizable in-cluster display monitors everything except your racing heart. A full-colour display within the 6-gauge instrument cluster allows personalized settings for audio, compass, temperature settings, fuel economy, trip info, cruise control, trailer braking, vehicle status and engine performance. The dynamic information screens are accessed using an intuitive “roller menu” controlled by a steering wheel-mounted toggle switch.
Stay in touch with the people, music, and devices that matter most. Uconnect® is an intuitive hub for all your media – cell phone, navigation system, MP3 player and smartphone.

Uconnect® multimedia centres: a model for easy, hands-free communication and entertainment. The full-colour touchscreen makes driving a pure joy. At the top of the line is the brilliant Uconnect 8.4AN radio, offering GPS-based navigation so sophisticated, it includes three-dimensional displays of landmarks and city models.
The multimedia hub provides connectivity between the Uconnect® multimedia centre and a wide range of compatible devices and media. The hub features an auxiliary audio input jack for an external MP3 player and a USB port which can be used both for connecting and charging compatible media devices and phones. An SD card slot is included on vehicles featuring the Uconnect 8.4A or 8.4AN multimedia centre. The multimedia hub is conveniently located in the armrest storage bin or in the centre fold-down bin on vehicles with bench seat configurations.
The available Park-Sense® Front Ultrasonic Park Assist System simplifies parking and manoeuvring. The 6 sensors integrated into the front fascia can detect objects up to 119.4 cm (47 in) away and 4 sensors in the rear bumper can detect objects up to 200.6 cm (79 in) away. Park Assist then calculates the object’s distance and displays it within the 7-inch customizable in-cluster display. Clear and audible chimes also warn you as you get closer to the object for safe and accurate manoeuvring.
So important to towing control and daily safety and security, it’s standard on every Ram 1500. ESC is so refined it can anticipate the intended path of the vehicle to optimize vehicle dynamics. ESC features multiple advanced technologies including: Ready Alert Braking, All-Speed Traction Control, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control.
Integrated with the ABS, it regulates wheel spin at all speeds. Impending wheel slip during acceleration results in throttle control to reduce torque. In extreme situations – accelerating from pavement to ice – it will selectively apply brakes to help maintain control. It can also be turned off with a console-mounted button.
As part of the standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Start Assist (HSA) automatically stops the vehicle from rolling backward while stopped on an incline. HSA disengages when acceleration resumes.
Another standard safety feature on every Ram 1500 model, this technology notifies you through a warning indicator display in the instrument cluster if the air pressure in any tire drops below a safe level.

This available factory-installed feature improves trailer braking performance and stability. The controls are conveniently integrated into the centre stack and a display on the instrument cluster lets you know when the feature is in operation.
This available Alpine® audio system offers 506 watts, dual voice coil subwoofer and 7.1 channel surround sound amplifier with 10 optimally positioned speakers (including subwoofer) to deliver rich, deep sound quality that brings your favourite music to life.
Packaged with the available TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission, the Active Grille Shutters reside behind the grille and create an ingenious airflow control system that automatically opens and closes to deliver the least amount of aerodynamic drag based on driving conditions.
The available ParkView® Rear Back-up Camera features dynamic grid lines that adjust the guide paths as the steering wheel is turned to aid in aligning trailers and hitches. The rear back-up camera uses a tailgate-mounted hidden camera and conveniently displays the image on the radio screen or rearview mirror (depending on radio system).
