2021 Ram 1500 | Dixon, IL 

Ram trucks offer more than superior strength and power when it comes to towing performance. A suite of innovative and advanced towing technologies available in Ram trucks make hitching, trailering, reversing, and controlling large loads safer and easier than ever before. Be sure to visit our team at Ken Nelson CDJR in Dixon, Illinois, for all your Ram truck needs.

Air Suspension System

The available Air Suspension System simplifies the process of hooking up a gooseneck, fifth-wheel, or conventional trailer to your Ram truck. You can easily raise or lower your truck to match with whatever it is that you need to tow.

Cargo View and Back-Up Cameras

Use the available cargo view and back-up cameras to give yourself a clean view behind your truck so you can align your Ram truck with a boat, livestock trailer, or whatever it is you're towing.

Multifunction Tailgate

The Ram 1500's available multifunction tailgate has a 60/40 split swing-away configuration which allows you to open up the bed to access cargo, even when a trailer is already hitched. Grabbing a tool from the bed after you're already hitched isn't an inconvenience thanks to the flexibility of the Ram multifunction tailgate.

360-Degree Surround View

The available 360-degree Surround View Camera and Trailer Camera Prep provide a full view of your surroundings with two auxiliary cameras that you can mount on your trailer or within it. If you're unsure how close you are to a wall or any obstructions while hitching or towing a load, this feature can give you the view you need to assess your situation.

Trailer Tow Mirrors

Available Trailer Tow Mirrors with Spotter Lamps can extend out from your Ram truck longer than usual, giving you a clearer and wider view when you're pulling a heavy trailer. If you're reversing your trailer into its spot, this available feature will grant you much-needed peace of mind.

Reverse Guidance with Split-Screen View

This available safety feature also assists when backing up a trailer. Its split-screen configuration gives you a wide view from the camera angle, which can help you reverse a trailer with no assistance from another person if you're working solo for the day or your family is busy setting up the campsite while you park the boat.

Blind Spot Monitoring

This available feature, which also offers Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection, accounts for the length of your trailer while constantly scanning your blindside for vehicles. Other trucks' comparable features force you to manually account for your trailer's length. This feature enables you to change lanes with confidence even when you're towing thousands of pounds of precious cargo.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning is an available safety feature that uses sensors on the front of your Ram truck to monitor for potential upcoming collisions. It will alert you audibly and visually and will either apply the brakes or help you do so if it detects a hazard. Frontal collisions when you're pulling multiple tons of weight are easier to avoid with Forward Collision Warning.

Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring

This handy available feature keeps tabs on your trailer's tire pressure so you can spend your time focusing on work or play with your trailer.

Trailer Reverse Steering Control

Steering while reversing a large trailer is never a simple process, but with the available Trailer Reverse Steering Control, your handling of it all is smoother and easier. Simply use the Trailer Steering Knob for intuitive control over the direction of your trailer while the system handles your Ram truck's steering.

Better Control

Nothing is more important while towing than keeping your trailer steady and under control. Available features such as Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Sway Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and Adaptive Cruise Control work to make towing in a Ram truck safe and easy in any situation.
