2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Earns Five-Star Rating in Front Crash Test

2009 Ram Earns 5 Stars for Safety

The all-new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 has been awarded five-star safety ratings for driver and front-passenger protection in frontal crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


NHTSA conducts front crash tests by crashing vehicles into a fixed barrier at 35 mph, which is the equivalent of a head-on collision between two similar vehicles, each moving at 35 mph. Using crash-test dummies, instruments measure the force of impact to each dummy's head, neck, chest, pelvis, legs and feet. Front crash-test star ratings indicate the chance of serious head and chest injuries to the driver and front passenger. A serious injury is one requiring immediate hospitalization, and may be life-threatening. A five-star rating indicates that the risk of serious injury is 10 percent or less in a frontal crash.

Earlier this month, the new 2009 Ford F-150 earned recognition as a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
