During the 2010 New York International Auto Show, Chrysler Group LLC displayed its security and safety systems in a visual display of the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country.
Senior Vice President – Engineering at Chrysler Group Scott Kunselman stated that the company’s sophisticated security and safety systems assist customers in their everyday driving situations. The active and passive safety systems are incorporated into all of the Jeep, Dodge, Ram Truck and Chrysler vehicles.
All of the Chrysler Group vehicles have a double safety approach: traditional safety features, including supplemental side-curtain air bags, active head restraints, constant-force seat-belt retractors (CFR) and seat-belt pretensioning along with accident-avoidance features, such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Smart Brake. Furthermore, features such as the Sentry Key engine immobilizer and anti-theft alarms are also included.
The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country offers the highest refinement and luxury levels in the minivan segment and currently offers active safety features that are exclusive to this segment. The new features include RCP and BSM accident-avoidance systems, Parkview rear back-up camera, Parksense rear-park assist and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Some of the security and safety features in the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country visual display include anti-lock brake system (ABS) that senses and stops wheel lockup; auto headlamps that employ a sensor for detecting exterior light and switches on headlights automatically; electronic stability control (ESC) that helps driver control and assists to maintain directional stability; rain-sensing wipers that automatically activates wipers when it senses the presence of moisture on the windshield; seat-belt pretensioners that use impact sensors to activate front seat-belt pretensioners during a collision; supplemental side-curtain air bags employs sensors and provides protection to passengers seated in the front as well as the rear; tire-pressure monitoring (TPM) that alerts the vehicle driver when tire pressure goes too low and uses pressure-sensor modules for this purpose.
The other security and safety features include active head restraints (AHR), air bags (multi-stage), BeltAlert, brake assist, brake/park interlock, child seat anchor system, child-protection rear-door locks, Constant-force Retractors (CFR), door alert, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Enhanced Accident Response System (EARS), height-adjustable seat belts, High-intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps, HomeLink universal transceiver, interior head-impact protection, knee bolsters, rear-interior conversation mirror, Sentry Key engine immobilizer, SmartBeam headlamps, Smart Brake, Traction Control System (TCS), and Uconnect Phone and Voice Command.
