The 2016 RAM 1500 earned the highest possible rating in the side crash test. For the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests for 2016, RAM 1500s earned the highest “good” rating for the moderate overlap front and head restraints and seats portions.

RAM Trucks had said new frame and body modifications seen on the ’16 RAM 1500s helped make the “good” score for the IIHS’ small overlap front test. According to the IIHS, this specific test is designed to simulate when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a telephone pole or a tree.

Standard safety features on the 2016 RAM 1500 include:

—Side airbags (front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags)
—Rollover sensor (designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover)
—Electronic stability control (includes roll stability control)
—Antilock brakes

Rearview cameras are optional even on the base models of the RAM 1500. To learn more about how a RAM 1500 can give your Atlanta business fleet a boost or to schedule a test drive, call Atlanta Commercial Trucks today at 855-971-9571 or contact us online!
