Ram and Jeep score top safety and luxury marks.

Here at Barnett, you’ll never have to compromise between safety and luxury. Two of our best-selling vehicles, the Ram 1500 Crew Cab full-size pickup and the Jeep Cherokee midsize SUV, have both earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In addition, Cars.com has named the Ram 1500 its 2020 Luxury Car of the Year. And right now, during the Start Something New Sales Event here at Barnett, you can lease a 2019 Ram 1500 Quad Classic Express OR Warlock 4x4 for only $299 a month*! You can also lease a loaded 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk for just $249 a month**.
The Ram 1500 achieved the highest possible ratings in each of the six crashworthiness tests conducted by IIHS. Of those evaluations, three simulate frontal impacts, and the Ram 1500 recorded “good” results in each (the highest possible rating). Outcomes were the same in the three remaining crashworthiness tests, all of which inflict damage consistent with a side impact, rear impact and a rollover.
More impressively, Forward Collision Mitigation in the Ram 1500 earned a “superior” rating from IIHS. This optional feature utilizes technology that blends cameras with radar detection to determine when an impact is imminent. The system initially warns the driver to take action to avoid a collision; if the driver does not act in a timely manner, the system can then activate the vehicle’s brakes if a collision risk remains.
As if safety weren’t enough, the Ram 1500 also scores big on lux amenities, being named the Cars.com 2020 Luxury Car of the Year—the first time a truck has won this award. “This award validates Ram’s unrelenting efforts to deliver more comfort, refinement and value to our customers,” said Reid Bigland, head of Ram Brand. “The Ram 1500 Longhorn and Limited are examples of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry. It is immensely satisfying to have Cars.com recognize the Ram 1500 as Luxury Car of the Year.”
Not to be overshadowed, the Jeep Cherokee also earned a Top Safety Pick rating from IIHS. The rating applies to 2019 Jeep Cherokees produced after April of that year, when equipped with Jeep’s available Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology, Forward Collision Warning-Plus, and LED projector headlamps with optional automatic high-beam control—just some of the more-than-80 available safety and security features that carry over to model-year 2020.
“This latest award is solid recognition for the Jeep Cherokee, an SUV that is not only recognized for being the most capable vehicle in its class, but also packed with more than 80 advanced safety and security features and benchmark 4x4 systems to help consumers tackle any terrain in all weather conditions,” says Jim Morrison, head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. “Jeep Cherokee provides the confidence and security to handle any journey."
