2020 Ram Wins Safety Award
The Ram 1500 Crew Cab pickup has been named a Top Safety Pick for 2019, which is the highest rating given by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! The rating also applies to the 2020 RAM 1500 along with specific 2019 Crew Cab models are the first full-size pickups to earn the Top Safety Pick under the current IIHS guidelines. Factors that went into the decision include the Automatic Emergency Braking technology, which grades as “superior,” and benefits from the industry’s only pickup-segment application of Integrated Radar Camera Module. A hundred other safety and security features are also available. For 2020, the RAM 1500 achieves the highest possible ratings in each of the six crashworthiness tests conducted by the IIHS. The 2019 Top Safety Pick rating is the culmination of a few months in the sun for RAM. The 1500 has also won the Motor Trend Truck of the Year and a place among Wards 10 Best Engines with its 3.6-liter V6 engine with eTorque.
The safety story of the RAM 1500 begins with the innovative and patented approach to frame-rail construction. The pickups’ front rails are splayed to manage crash energy in certain types of frontal collisions better. When the IIHS conducted its six crashworthiness evaluations, three of them simulated front impacts. And the Ram 1500 recorded “good” results in each, which is the highest possible rating. The outcomes for the three remaining crashworthiness test were the same, as the IIHS conducted tests which inflict damage consistent with a side impact, rollover, and a rear impact. Another unique feature for the RAM 1500 is the Integrated Radar Camera Module which accommodates the Forward Mitigation System. The IRCM consolidates camera and radar components behind the Ram’s rearview mirror, which simplifies their interface as well as keeps essential technology out of harm’s way in the event of a minor collision. Speaking of the Forward Collision Warning, it earned a “superior” rating from the IIHS. An optional feature on the RAM 1500, it boasts a sensor-fusion technology, that blends camera capability with radar detection to determine when a collision is imminent.
