Truck Thursday: 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect technology is your new on-road ‘BFF’

Over the past several weeks our Truck Thursday series has been bringing you up to speed on many of the innovative features that help the 2019 Ram 1500 ‘up the game’ over the competition. We’ve taken you under the hood; down to the longest, lightest and most efficient frame in the half-ton segment; behind a segment-leading aluminum tailgate with lift assist; checked out the Ram 1500’s more than 100 safety and security features, and given you a taste of the Ram 1500’s customized interior luxury and comfort appointments.

For the next eight weeks, we’re turning our focus to something even more personal. A Ram 1500 segment-leading feature that’s really all about you!

The award-winning fourth-generation Uconnect system puts you in command of your destination, your music favorites, your comfort level, your on-the-road lifestyle needs with a 12-inch touchscreen display that happens to be the largest in the segment.

Summer vacation? Weekend get-a-ways? The best of summer is just ahead. Are you ready? In this Truck Thursday edition, Brad Gieske –FCA Experience Design Manager, takes a deep dive into how to easily program and access information at a quick glance from the Ram 1500’s dual cluster display.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
