Regardless of your confidence as a driver, accidents can happen that's why you should choose a rig with advanced technologies and safety ratings. At St. Paul Dodge, that truck is the 2022 Ram 1500. This model was named the 2022 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the large pickup category, affording Alberta drivers additional peace of mind. In terms of crashworthiness, the 2022 Ram 1500 scored Good across all six evaluations (the highest grade available), including small overlap front driver/passenger, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, head restraints and seats. The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, on the other hand, earned a Marginal score for the small overlap front passenger assessment due to a poor structure and safety cage and lower leg/foot occupant injury measures. When keeping your crew and family protected in an accident, you don't want to settle for second-best. The 2022 Ram 1500 also earned an Advanced grade for the crash avoidance and mitigation category for vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention, unlike the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, which did not rank for this assessment. The Ram truck also boasts a standard forward collision warning with an active braking system on Sport and higher trims to minimize vehicle-to-vehicle crashes. To get this advanced safety technology on the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, you must add it as an optional feature since it is not included on any trim.
