Posted at Fri, Jul 21, 2023 2:15 PM

As we talk to eager consumers here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow about their ideal new vehicle, high marks in safety are frequently a factor. This makes quite a bit of sense: the car that you trust to be thoroughly dependable shouldn’t have the slightest “what ifs” regarding you and your family arriving at home 100% safe each night. The most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) named brands RAM, GMC, and Dodge as the keepers of the top three spots for safety on American roads.

These valuable conclusions were based on how many times each brand was involved in an accident where at least one person unfortunately suffered fatal injuries and each model's percentage of actual passenger fatalities. The study showed that 18.9 percent of those involved in the fatal accident of the Ram pickup truck brand suffered fatal injuries, which was more than 10 percentage points lower than all other brands. Dodge came in third on the list, with just 32.7 percent of those in their brands suffering fatal injuries after an accident, while also wearing the success of the amazingly quick Dodge Challenger on our sleeve.

The fourth-place spot went to the always adventure-ready Jeep brand, with just 34.1 percent of those in injuries suffering fatalities. We’ve been enjoying the best-selling + trail conquering Grand Cherokee’s constant success, and popularity as a model that is perfect for the lake or campsite while still providing segment-leading safety while encountering the most demanding terrain. 

The 2023 Ram 1500 was also praised highly by the Autoblog car review for its “Best-in-class ride, handling and interior, impressive infotainment tech, and extra-comfy rear seats.” Their conclusion that the Ram line was undoubtedly #1 began with the Ram’s amazing coil spring rear suspension, which offers up a quality of ride comfort and vehicle control that its competitors can’t come close to matching. The Ram’s interior is also the most innovative, functional, and highest in quality to luxuriously watch the miles go by from. The Ram TRX boasts a thoroughly insane amount of thrust thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8, producing 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee eagerly offers the style, capability, and luxury it’s so well-known for, only now with available plug-in hybrid power and several exciting modern upgrades. The PHEV-only Trailhawk boasts the top-of-the-line Quadra-Trac II setup which features an electronic limited-slip rear differential and Jeep’s legendary Selec-Terrain system. Overland and Limited trims now also come standard with a 10.1-inch central infotainment screen and navigation, while the Summit and Overland models can be ordered with the superb-sounding 19-speaker Mcintosh audio system. 

The 2023 Dodge Durango landed a stellar review from the Motor Trend crew for its muscular design and very sharp handling, along with the exciting return of the Hellcat engine. It is thrilling to have a Durango with over 700 horsepower in the lineup before many high-powered engines may be riding into the sunset to prepare for the future of electrification. Heated seats are now standard on each model, and you’ll enjoy being spotted around town in one of the awesome new Frostbite, Night Moves, Red Oxide, or Triple Nickel paint hues. Blind-spot monitoring is still standard, with the G/T and R/T models receiving adaptive cruise control.
