Summary: The IIHS conducts a series of six crashworthiness evaluations used to simulate frontal impact, side impact, rear impact and a rollover. Vehicles are given one of four ratings – Good, Acceptable, Marginal or Poor.

  • The Ram 1500 rated Good in all six categories of the IIHS Crashworthiness test.
  • The Ram 1500 rated Good in headlamp testing when equipped with adaptive LED projector headlamps with high-beam assist.

Models with front crash prevention systems are rated by the IIHS as Superior, Advanced or Basic.

  • The Ram 1500 rated Superior for front crash prevention when equipped with the Forward Collision Mitigation system.

The Secret to Ram’s Safety

The Ram 1500’s crash safety performance begins with innovations such as its patented approach to frame-rail construction. The pickup’s front frame-rails are splayed to better manage crash energy in certain types of frontal collisions.

Also exclusive to the Ram 1500 is the use of an Integrated Radar Camera Module (IRCM) in the Forward Collision Mitigation system. The IRCM consolidates radar and camera components behind the rearview mirror, keeping important technology out of harm’s way in the event of a collision.
