How safe is the 2022 Ram 1500?
Now that we’ve covered the capabilities and features of the 2022 Ram 1500, we’d like to share how safe it is. The Ram 1500s body sits atop a high-strength steel frame engineered to direct impact energy away from the cabin, keeping occupants safe. The driver and passenger airbags have an advanced technology called adaptive damping which will sense the occupant’s size and adjust the deployment rate depending on that and the severity of the impact. In addition to the standard safety equipment, the Ram 1500 is also available with the Advanced Safety Group. This group of high-tech driver assists includes adaptive cruise control with stop and go, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, full-speed forward collision mitigation, automatic emergency braking, blindspot monitoring with trailer coverage, rear cross-path detection, and an available 360-degree surround-view camera.
