In addition to carrying heavy cargo loads, this frame provides significant durability and safety.

  • Four-wheel disc antilock brakes
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Side-impact door beams for additional durability
  • Electronic stability control
  • Dynamic front crumple zones that can absorb impacts safely

New Features

The RAM 1500 also incorporates a number of new safety technologies that you wouldn’t expect to find onboard a pickup truck, including:

  • An AllSecure Central Locking system that allows you to engage the RAM 1500’s theft deterrent system
  • A ParkView rear backup camera that’s cleverly integrated into the tailgate handle to help you see what’s behind you when backing up to a trailer or out of a driveway
