One of the leading causes of death and injury for children are motor vehicle accidents. In order to keep your child safe while you’re driving, you should invest in a quality car seat. You should take your child’s age and size into consideration prior to selecting the right car seat for them.
Once you’ve found the right car seat for your child, you should search for a vehicle that is ideal for a car seat. If you are a truck lover, understand that you don’t have to compromise your vehicle of choice because you have a child. Believe it or not, 2018 Dodge trucks can now comfortably fit a car seat.
Dodge trucks offer a plethora of cutting-edge safety features like a backup camera, electronic stability control, side-curtain airbags, and dynamic front crumble zones that are designed to help keep passengers safe and secure in the event of a frontal impact. In addition, they are furnished with flat-seat cushions, wide doors for easy access, and plenty of legroom and interior space.
We reached out to Performance Automotive who sells 2018 Dodge RAMs to ask them if the 2018 Dodge RAM 1500 and 2500 support car seats and LATCH. We spoke to a nice lady there, and she said yes!
They said: “I am happy to let you know that all cab models from regular cab to mega cab on the RAM pickup come standard with the LATCH system.”
We should note here that any time a child in a car seat is in a regular cab pickup truck that you should DISABLE the passenger airbags.
We forgot to ask if you can disable the passenger side airbag on a crew cab / mega cab so you’ll have to research that on your own.
If you’re looking for a vehicle for around town you may also want to consider the Journey, Caravan or Durango as well.
