The Ram 1500 Crew Cab full-size pickup has been named a Top Safety Pick+ for 2019, a top rating given by a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

“This approval validates a harsh efforts to broach some-more value for a customers,” says Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “The new Ram 1500 has warranted many accolades for a capability and design. It is immensely gratifying to have a IIHS commend a lorry for a constrained reserve story.”

The Ram 1500’s reserve story starts with innovations such as a patented proceed to frame-rail construction. The truck’s front frame-rails are splayed to improved conduct pile-up appetite in certain forms of frontal collisions.

Of a 6 crashworthiness evaluations conducted by a IIHS, 3 copy frontal impacts. And a Ram 1500 available “good” formula in each, a top probable rating.

Outcomes were a same in a 3 remaining crashworthiness tests, that inflict repairs unchanging with a side impact, back impact and a rollover.

Also singular to a Ram 1500 is a use of an Integrated Radar Camera Module (IRCM) to accommodate Forward Collision Mitigation. The IRCM consolidates radar and camera components behind a vehicle’s rearview mirror, that not usually simplifies their interface, though keeps critical record out of harm’s approach in a eventuality of teenager collisions.

Meanwhile, Forward Collision Mitigation in a Ram 1500 warranted a “superior” rating from IIHS. The discretionary underline boasts sensor-fusion technology, that blends camera capability with radar showing to establish when an impact is imminent.

The complement primarily warns a motorist to take movement to equivocate a collision. If a motorist does not act in a timely manner, a complement might activate a vehicle’s brakes if collision risk remains.

The Top Safety Pick+ rating is also enabled by adaptive LED projector headlamps that have high-beam assist. The record was polished in May of this year, earning a top IIHS rating of “good.”

A “good” rating in headlamp contrast is a latest IIHS requirement to acquire Top Safety Pick+.

The 2019 Top Safety Pick+ rating is a perfection of many months in a spotlight for a Ram 1500 – from Motor Trend Truck of a Year to a place among Wards 10 Best Engines with a standard-equipment 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with eTorque.
