Chrysler Boasts: Big Safety in 2009 Dodge Ram

August 4, 2008
It's a veritable truckload of safety--the features coming in the 2009 Dodge Ram are almost too many to count on one body unless things go off-color.

While we're waiting for the August 31 embargo date to expire on the new Ram--or, really, waiting for one of the buff books to blow the embargo date the minute their October issues hit the streets--we're happy to bring you the details of the 2009 Ram's safety package. Among the 35 new or improved safety features, Dodge points most proudly to standard anti-lock brakes across the board--ABS of the four-wheel variety, no less. There's also standard stability control, as well as Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control, features also found on the automaker's 2009 Dodge Durango HEMI Hybrid and 2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid sport-utes.

Chrysler also says its new pickup will have multistage airbags and standard side curtain airbags, as well as traction control. A rear park-assist system and a backup camera will be an option, as will remote start.

Stay tuned for our full review of the 2009 Dodge Ram as soon as it breaks cover somewhere--surely it won't wait for Labor Day. Right?
