Technology Meets Safety with these Advanced Features

A safe vehicle used to just mean that it was built with high-strength steel and crumple zones. Today, a safe vehicle has numerous technology features that stabilize your vehicle, maintain traction and even warn you of potential danger. The Dodge Durango sits at the forefront of this innovation.

The Dodge Durango has a rain brake support feature that removes water from the brake pads. It does this by applying a slight amount of pressure to the calipers to improve stopping power. Ready-alert braking is activated when you quickly release the accelerator pedal. It understands that you may be doing this for an emergency braking situation and it will make the brakes more sensitive so you can stop more effectively. Other safety features include:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring: When you’re insecure about changing lanes, this feature can help. It alerts you to folks hiding in your blind spot so you can change lanes with the peace of mind of knowing that you won’t accidentally run into someone.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop: This feature monitors the flow of traffic around you and optimizes your speed for it. It does so by allowing you to set your cruising speed and follow distance. It can slow down to a complete stop in case of standstill traffic.
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: A rainstorm can make the roads slippery and impair your vision. With this safety feature turned on, it automatically adjusts your windshield wipers to match rainfall to provide a better view of the road.
  • Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus: This feature utilizes a camera and radar technology to warn you of potential front-end collisions. If the collision is imminent and you are not reacting fast enough then this feature will activate the brakes to mitigate potential damage.
