There is no direct answer to your question. In most cases manufacturers, Dodge included, have gone to a combination of front bumper impact sensors, and internal G-force sensors which detect forces exerted on occupants in a crash. While it might be safe to assume a 35mph t-bone collision should set the airbags off, a lot of variables come into play which may mean that they may or may not be deployed in such a case.
