2022 Ram 1500 Top Safety Pick

The 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab has earned the Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, also referred to as IIHS for 2022. The Ram 1500 has achieved this honor mainly impart to the outstanding Automatic Emergency Braking technology, adaptive LED projector headlamps with high-beam assist, and the truck's performances. This is the third consecutive year that the 1500 Crew Cab won the Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

What Ram models offer Automatic Emergency Braking technology?

In 2020 The IIHS emended their rating scale to include a great significance on lighting and Automatic Emergency Braking technology. Buyers can receive this impressive safety system as standard equipment on Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, Limited 10th Anniversary, and TRX models. This technology earned the Ram 1500 a "superior" rating and the highest possible IIHS grade.

How Ram's Automatic Emergency Braking system works

Ram's Automatic Emergency Braking system is enabled by sensor-fusion technology, which combines camera capabilities with radar sensors. The system will then use that data to determine if a frontal impact appears imminent. If so, and after multiple alerts, the driver does not respond and correct the potential risk, the system will deploy the vehicle's brakes to help avoid impact or reduce its severity.

Six IIHS Crashworthy Tests

In order to win the Top Safety Pick from IIHS, the vehicle must master six IIHS crashworthiness tests that include three types of frontal crashes. The remaining tests inflict damage consistent with a side impact, rear impact, and a rollover. The 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab achieved the highest possible score in each category.

What is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety?

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety was founded in 1959 by three significant insurance associations representing 80 percent of the U.S. auto insurance market. It has since become an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization. The IIHS is dedicated to reducing deaths, injuries, and property damage from motor vehicle crashes through research and evaluation and educating consumers, policymakers, and safety professionals.
