Safety

The 2019 Dodge Ram only comes standard with a rearview camera. Most of everything else requires an upgrade. While the NHTSA hasn't ranked the full-size truck yet, the IIHS did and awarded them with the Good rating in six tests, except for the headlight illumination where it received Marginal rankings. It's a safe truck but until the NHTSA ranks the Dodge Ram, the F-150 stands ahead.
