2021 Ram 1500 | Dixon, IL

Want a safe pickup truck for your family in Dixon, Illinois? Check out the 2021 Ram 1500 at Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram. It just was awarded a better safety rating than any other truck on the market.

 The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the 2021 Ram 1500 Crew Cab with a 2021 Top Safety Pick Rating after earning top marks in the agency’s six crash tests. The Ram 1500 took home the top rating in 2020, too.

“A Top Safety Pick for the Ram 1500 solidifies our long-standing commitment to our customers through advanced technology and engineering expertise,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis. “This validation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety builds consumer confidence in our trucks and in the Ram brand.”

To win a Top Safety Pick designation, a vehicle must now offer Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking, an advanced driver-assist technology. Under proper conditions, the tech monitors activity around you and intervenes if necessary. The system offered in the 2021 Ram 1500 was rated as “advanced” by the IIHS, a major achievement.

In addition to Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking, the 2021 Ram 1500 boasts several more advanced safety technologies. When you opt for the available Advanced Safety Group package, you will have access to tools such as Rear Cross Path Detection, Blind Spot Monitoring with trailer coverage, Lane Departure Warning Plus, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Go and Hold.

Ram 1500 TRX Wins ‘2021 Pickup Truck of the Year’ Title

2021 Ram 1500 TRX | Dixon, IL

Each year, the editors of FOUR WHEELER, an off-road enthusiast publication, present the “Pickup Truck of the Year” award to the best performing truck. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX recently earned this title after beating its competitors in a grueling competition.

FOUR WHEELER judges tested new or greatly revised trucks on over 1,000 miles of pavement, dirt, sand, snow, mud, gravel, and rocks. Trucks needed to climb uphill on loose dirt, cross water, and drive at night during the testing. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX blew the competition away, thanks to its impressive durability and capabilities.

This truck features the Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8, which delivers best-in-class 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s the first Ram truck to have Launch Control with Launch Assist, improving the acceleration rate. Plus, it offers eight drive modes and 11.8 inches of ground clearance for off-roading adventures.

“The Ram 1500 TRX is a breathtaking truck that flat out impresses,” said FOUR WHEELER Editor Ken Brubaker. “From its bad-boy muscular stance to its stunning pin-you-to-your-seat power to its incredible suspension that easily tames the worst terrain, the TRX is the total package.”
