RAM 3500 OWNERS: YOU’VE BEEN CALLED OUT FOR CAUSING ACCIDENTS

That’s According To A New Study

Your personal vehicle of choice is indeed a reflection of who you are. They are more than just a means of transportation for many, especially the vehicles we cover here at MC&T. Unfortunately for some, a new study says that Ram drivers are among the most accident prone on the road. Not every Ram owner is this way however, as the study breaks down what model to look out for and why they have obtained such status.

Insurify, an “insurance quotes comparison platform” utilized its access to over 4.6 million insurance applications from the past seven-years to come up with some interesting statistics, namely what vehicle brands are most likely to cause accidents on the road. The study revealed that just over 9% of Americans have at least one at-fault accident on their driving record. Notably, Corvette and Mustang owners did not make the top five list.

They found the top-five vehicle brands with the most at-fault accidents to their name were Ram, Subaru, Volkswagen, Mazda, and Hyundai. Of these, Ram had the most and Hyundai with the least, but all of which were still above the national average for at-fault wrecks, based on their data.

The overall share of Ram drivers with an at-fault accident on their record is almost 11% where the worst “offender” with 14.14% of drivers reporting an at-fault accident was the Ram 3500. The safest among Ram drivers is the ProMaster 1500 which accounted for just over 10% of at-fault accidents for the brand.

The Ram 3500 HD tuck is undoubtably a big machine, especially the dually variant, which may be a contributing factor to its top spot on this list. To that end, the 2023 Ram HD continues to become more tech-centric, and perhaps a little “safer” and “easier to drive” than the Ram 3500 of seven years ago. That being said, Volvo won the award for having the safest drivers among all auto brands surveyed.
