When it comes down to it, safety is one of the most important aspects in an automobile. Sure, fancy in-cabin entertainment systems, powerful engines, and attractive exterior design may get all the attention, but at the end of the day, advanced safety features can protect you and your family from injuries in the event of an accident. Fortunately for drivers in Frontenac, KS, RAM trucks are packed with the latest in safety technologies and perform well in crash tests. For now, we’ll focus on a customer favorite our new RAM inventory: the 2017 RAM 1500. 

Drivers seeking a pickup truck that’s an all-around performer should check out the 2017 RAM 1500. The tough pickup is known for its durability, variety of different configuration options, and its powerful engines. On the safety side, its tough construction allowed it to receive the highest score in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety testing in the categories of side crash, side barrier, and front seat. It received an overall score of four stars.

In addition to stellar crash test scores, the 2017 RAM 1500 also comes packed with both standard and optional safety features. Standard on all trims of the pickup are trailer-sway control, hill start assist, and three sets of airbags. A fully-integrated trailer-brake controller, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors are available. If you decide to include the Uconnect® Access package, you also get an emergency system that connects you with 911 operators at the touch of a button and also provides stolen vehicle tracking.

When shopping in the 2017 RAM truck inventory, as well as our new Chrysler, Jeep®, and Dodge models, you’ll find that many of the vehicles have these same safety features. Check them out right here at Jay Hatfield Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, your local Frontenac, KS car dealership!
