2009 Dodge Ram Safety and Security Features

The all-new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab and Quad® Cab earned five-star ratings for driver- and front-passenger protection in a frontal crash, the highest ratings in the U.S. government’s safety crash test program. The 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab received the same five-star ratings earlier this year. “Safety is an engineering priority in all Chrysler vehicles and the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram is proof of our efforts,” Scott Kunselman, Vice President – Body on Frame Product Team, said. “The all-new Dodge Ram offers enhanced passive safety protection as well as the latest active safety technologies. We have integrated more than 35 safety and security features, instilling the confidence our customers want and expect.”

When it comes to safety and security, the 2009 Ram 1500 employs a two-fold approach: passive features including pre-tensioning seat belt retractors and supplemental side-curtain air bags are combined with accident-avoidance features including responsive steering, braking and handling. The all-new Ram 1500 offers more than 35 safety and security features including standard Electronic Stability Control, which includes all-speed traction control, trailer sway control, hill-start assist and an anti-lock brake system.
