Drivers look for safe vehicles that can protect them if they're in an accident. This is especially true in the winter when roads are slick and going off them in cold conditions make an accident additionally dangerous when you factor in the biting temperatures. That's why engineers took the time and care when building the 2018 RAM 1500.

For starters, there are 4-wheel disc antilock brakes. They're standard on all 2018 RAM 1500's and keep the truck's steering wheel from locking up if you need to react & stop on icy pavement. There's side safety: side curtain airbags and side-impact door beams take away lot of the force in an accident, further protecting occupants. The front also has Dynamic Crumple Zones built to take on intense frontal impacts.

On the techy side of safety, the RAM 1500 has Electronic Stability Control. What this does is make the car easier to maneuver in difficult situations. It's a comprehensive package that includes Hill Start Assist, Trailer Sway Control, Rain Brake Support, Brake Assist, and Ready Alert Braking.

All these features have helped the RAM 1500 earn a top score of 'Good' with select tests at the IIHS safety center and 4- or 5- Stars with select NHTSA test.
