Checking the tech in the 2019 Ram 1500

Roadshow
[MUSIC] Welcome to a Tech Check into all things techie in the Ram 1500. Now if bigger is better, then the 12 inch screen here in the Ram 1500 is the king of all infotainment. And what's even better. It's running Ram's excellent You Connect infotainment system. Now, if you want, you can divide the screen into two sections just by choosing one of these five options. And then if you wanna flip them back and forth, just click on that little button so you can have whatever you want on the top and whatever you want on the bottom. BUt if you wanna have one function across the whole screen, just choose from these tiles down here. So navigation Boom right there full size screen you know what I do like is it I have separate control that for my heated seats and for my climate control and if that's too much for you, you do have physical buttons here alongside for climate. Unfortunately there's no physical button for your heated seats. Now when it comes to navigation, there is one box entry here for both point of interest and addresses. So there's no extraneous button pushing that you have to do. But it's got Apple Car Play and Android Auto, so you're probably just gonna use those navigation systems anyway. Now you can choose functions from the app page as well. And you can customize this page just by tapping and then moving it into place. So here I have all this. Same functions that I have in other places. So navigation, climate, my media, it's all right here in the app page as well. I really like this Sirius XM travel link because I have access to my weather, I've got access to fuel prices $4 a gallon. We're not gonna be going there. And check it out, I even got movie listings. So while this 12 inch screen might look overwhelming at first, it's actually really easy to use and it's very intuitive. It's one of my favorites on the market. Now, when it comes to driver's aids, you can customize them in the U-Connect system as well, and I highly recommend going into the Lane Sense. This is lane departure warning and mitigation and turn this strength from high down to medium, that's the steering intervention and it's really, really strong and it's a little bit scary. I've got blind spot monitoring that can cover the length of a trailer and there's also Also adaptive cruise control with stop and go. So it will bring you to a complete stop in traffic and then it will pause there for about two seconds after that you are going to have to press that resume button to get yourself going again. But I really like that it works in stop and go traffic But it is a tiny little bit herky-jerky. Now when it comes to keeping things charged, the Ram has so many options. I've got two USB A and C in the front seat and in the rear seat. I've got a USB port here, I've got a 12-volt up here, I've got a 115-volt in the center console And for the rear seats. In fact, the only thing I'm missing is a 115 outlet in the bed so I can power up some tools or power up that blender for a post road trip margarita. The RAM 1500 is one of the techiest trucks out there. I mean, sure, the F150 has got the same stuff, and it also some trailer backup assist, [MUSIC] But on the whole, the RAM 1500 certainly does hold its own. [MUSIC]
