Buying the best cheap auto insurance for a Dodge Ram in Michigan relies on a fairly complex equation with a lot of factors such as annual miles driven, where your vehicle is garaged, and your motor vehicle report. Michigan drivers pay around $2,638 each year for Ram insurance, but that cost is an approximation calculated using a 50-year-old single male driver with full coverage and $250 deductibles.
There's a high likelihood you aren't exactly 50 years old or even a male, possibly married instead of single, and you might want liability-only or different deductibles. This example demonstrates why the way we recommend to find cheap insurance rates for your Dodge is to compare as many rates as possible. To start saving now, get free quotes and you will be able to see rates from the best auto insurance companies in Michigan.

The chart below illustrates how your deductible choice can impact premium costs when quoting cheap insurance for a Dodge Ram. The data is based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, and no policy discounts are applied.
A 50-year-old driver could lower their car insurance rates by $594 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $902 by choosing a $1,000 deductible. Young drivers, like the 20-year-old, could drop their prices up to $1,980 annually by selecting a higher deductible. When choosing a higher deductible, it will be necessary to have plenty of discretionary funds to enable you to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense that is associated with using high deductibles.

Chances are good that you're overpaying for Ram insurance
Michigan insurance rates are influenced by many factors that will increase or decrease the policy premium. Simply having a birthday, moving across town, or getting a DUI can trigger price changes that may make certain companies much cheaper than others. Also, companies amend premium rates as needed in order to offset underwriting gains or losses. Heavier than normal losses can result in more expensive prices, while better underwriting may produce cheaper Ram insurance rates.
For example, the chart below compares the cheapest car insurance in Detroit, MI for a 40-year-old male driver with no accidents or violations, and good financial standing. If we estimate prices based on his current risk factors, USAA might quote the best car insurance rates in Detroit at $2,167 per year. This is $226 less than the average premium paid by Michigan drivers of $2,393. GEICO, Safeco, MetLife, and MEEMIC round out the rest of the best Detroit, MI auto insurance companies.
In this next rate comparison, we will give the driver from the first set of rates some claims, bad credit, and a traffic citation. Since every insurance provider has a unique approach to determine rates, comparing rates could result in a slightly different list of companies as shown below.
GEICO now has the best price on car insurance in Detroit, MI with Pioneer State Mutual, USAA, Safeco, and Hastings Mutual now rounding out the top five. This demonstrates why it is critical to shop around with many companies to get the most affordable insurance quotes for a Dodge Ram.
Insurance prices consist of many risk factors and change frequently, so the best option three years ago may now be one of the higher cost companies.
