Sept. 12, 2019—The 2019–20 Ram 1500 crew cab is the first large pickup to earn a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Models equipped with specific headlights built after May 2019 and optional front crash prevention qualify for the award.

The Ram 1500 has curve-adaptive LED projector headlights with high-beam assist for models built after May 2019. Models with the same headlights built earlier earn a poor headlight rating due to excessive glare.

The pickup's optional front crash prevention system earns a superior rating in IIHS track tests. It avoided collisions in 12 and 25 mph track tests and has a forward collision warning component.
