Best Dodge Vehicles With Backup Cameras
Performance, style, and aesthetics are all essential factors when considering a new vehicle, and those aspects often get the most attention. However, safety features are probably the most crucial features when buying a vehicle, as nothing matters more than keeping yourself and your passengers safe. One of these important safety features is the backup camera to help you from colliding with pedestrians or objects. Dodge takes safety very seriously and offers many outstanding vehicles that feature a backup camera. Let’s look at a few of the best below.
The Dodge Challenger is well known for its power and performance but is also plentiful in its safety features. All of that starts with the ParkView rear backup camera, which gives you a great view of what’s behind you on the Uconnect touch screen and features gridlines to help navigate narrow areas and parking spots. In addition, the Challenger has many other safety features like a deluxe security alarm with an intrusion module. Also available are automatic high-beam headlights that change to low beam when traffic is detected and switch back to high beam once the oncoming vehicles have passed.
Next, the available blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-path detection helps when you are reversing or changing lanes by letting you know when another vehicle is in your blind spot. Adaptive cruise control is another available safety feature that automatically adjusts your cruise speed based on proximity to the vehicle in front of you. Next is a full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, giving both audio and visual warnings when you are too close to another vehicle.
Rain brake support is an innovative feature that applies a small amount of pressure to the calipers to keep the brake pads dry and is activated when the wipers are on. When rain is detected, the rain-sensing windshield wipers will engage automatically. Finally, the Challenger offers electronic stability control, all-speed traction control, and hill start assist.
Another vehicle that is synonymous with performance is the Dodge Charger, but again Dodge has included a multitude of safety features as well. Many of these features are the same as the Dodge Challenger, such as the ParkView rear backup camera, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, rain brake support, all-speed traction control, hill start assist, and electronic stability control. In addition, the Charger offers the ParkSense Rear Park Assist system that gives warnings when there are obstacles present behind the vehicle when you shift into reverse.
Advanced brake assist is another feature included on the Charger. It senses if there’s insufficient application of the brakes once the full-speed forward collision warning with active braking is activated and will apply increased brake force to help avoid an accident. Another braking enhancement added to the Charger is ready alert braking which prepares the braking system for a panic stop when the sensors pick up a rapid release of the accelerator, indicating a potential upcoming sudden stop.
The Charger also offers adaptive cruise control like mentioned above but adds stopping capability if traffic comes to a standstill. Finally, there are air bags throughout the vehicle, including advanced multistage front air bags, front seat-mounted pelvic-thoracic side air bags, supplemental full-length side-curtain air bags, and a driver’s side knee-blocker air bag as standard features.
Using advanced technology, the Dodge Durango offers a significant level of security and safety features highlighted by standard and available sensors, cameras, and exquisite software, all to keep you safe and in control. It has many features mentioned above, such as the Parkview rear backup camera, adaptive cruise control with stop, blind-spot monitoring, rain brake support, advanced brake assist, ready alert braking, rain-sensing windshield wipers, electronic stability control, and forward-collision warning with active braking.
In addition, the Durango has electronic brake-force distribution that adjusts the braking pressure from front to rear to minimize stopping distance, adapting to the vehicle’s weight distribution. LaneSense lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist is another safety feature the Durango offers. This system determines where the vehicle is within the lane and alerts you if you get too close to either side. If you don’t respond to the alert, LaneSense will gently guide you back to the center of the lane.
Widely recognized as a true power player in the half-ton segment, the Ram 1500 handles your towing, hauling, and performance needs with ease. It has a bold appearance that is equal parts stylish, functional, and durable while being the most luxurious truck in its class. The RAM also boasts many safety features as the other vehicles in the Dodge lineup and shares several, including backup camera, electronic stability control, blind-spot awareness, LaneSense lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist, and forward-collision warning with active braking.
Among the additional safety features employed by the RAM 1500 is electronic roll mitigation which keeps your truck centered and upright as you drive. Not only does the RAM 1500 offer a backup camera, but it also offers an all-new 360-degree trailer surround-view camera to see what is around your rig, as well as a 360-degree surround-view camera to get a good look all around your truck.
The RAM 1500 also has rear cross-path detection, similar to the other vehicles already mentioned, and trailer detection. This system scans the back and sides of the vehicle and offers warnings for any obstacles nearby, and the trailer detection will also account for the trailer for these warnings.
The driver-information digital cluster keeps your alerts and warnings right in front of you while available pedestrian emergency braking helps out if a pedestrian suddenly appears in front of your vehicle. You can also monitor tire pressure with the tire-pressure monitoring system and check the trailer lights with a trailer-light check. Finally, park with ease with the parallel and perpendicular park-assist system. The system informs you when to change gears, accelerate, and brake while it handles the steering for you.
