Updated features in this new truck model include; the all-new Head-Up Display, putting important driving information in the driver's field of vision, and the digital rearview mirror grows from a traditional rearview mirror to a 9.2-inch LCD.

The Sierra installed 15 camera views giving you class-leading safety and an extra vision of the terrain. Its towing technology, the Prograde system, is optimized for towing. This system works hand in hand with the Infotainment feature to provide you with crucial towing information such as tire pressure and trailer light monitor.

While both trucks offer a wide range of technology features for enhanced luxuries and entertainment, the RAM 1500 has the upper hand with its towing technology. Its towing system, Smart Towing, is useful especially for notifications on tire pressure, towing check and a 360° view while towing.
