When it comes to truck driving, consumers use pickup trucks for a variety of reasons, from personal use to commercial business. Popularly known as vehicles used for getting tough jobs done, light-duty and heavy-duty pickup trucks come in varying sizes to handle more power and heavier loads. Whether taking a truck off-road to test its capability or towing a heavy trailer, there’s nothing worse than the feeling that the truck is lacking stability. That terror in the bottom of your heart that at any moment something is bound to cause that thing to flip over isn’t a great feeling and having a truck with stability is key to truck buying.
For those unaware, many trucks are prone to rolling over as well. Amongst truck buyers, this becomes a primary concern, not just because of the truck bed and anything else stored in the back, but large pickups are fast-moving, load-carrying, weight-hauling machines. Going at 60 mph and suddenly tripping doesn’t sound very pleasant. On the road, there are two kinds of rollovers that a vehicle can experience: (1) a rollover that is the effect of an auto accident and collision with an external object or force caused the rollover, also known as a “tripped” rollover; and (2) an “untripped” rollover that is usually the result of cornering forces that destabilize the vehicle.
How can a consumer know they’re getting a truck that’s as steady as a rock? At NowCar, we care about car safety as much as technology. Looking through our available vehicles, and we found two solid trucks guaranteed to keep a smooth ride even in bumpy conditions.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a well-known truck among Chevy truckers. Tried and true, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this Chevy truck is recommended, with five-out-of-five stars for the rear and side crash ratings and a four-out-of-five star rating for its rollover rating. Made of aluminum, the vehicle is lighter than previous models, and with a maximum towing capacity of 9,900 pounds, the Silverado 1500 is more capable than before, having brought down its dangers of rolling over from previous generations.
No list of great and safe trucks would be complete without a Ram pickup truck on the list. We’re talking about the 2019 Ram 1500 light-duty pickup truck. Making it a little more roomy with the quad cab option is a great choice for small groups. Having received a four-out-of-five star rating from the NHTSA for its rollover rating, and side crash and rear passenger rating getting five-out-of-five stars, the Ram 1500 is a great choice for getting a truck that can do the hard work but also keeps all four wheels on the road. Able to tow up to 12,750 pounds and carry a payload of 2,300 pounds, the Ram 1500 is a great choice for tough jobs, but this model really stands out for its off-road package, adding a one-inch suspension lift, with or without the available four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, and 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18- or (available) 20-inch wheels to provide additional grip for consumers looking to take the truck off the beaten path.
