How Safe are Pickup Trucks?

Pickup trucks are almost synonymous with the state of Texas. In fact, one out of every 5 trucks sold in the United States, is sold in Texas. Their ability to help with hard ranch work, open cargo bed, and hauling capability. Trucks are without a doubt a symbol of hard work, a quality many Texans are proud to have.

Most think that on top of all of its practical uses, the pickup truck is also a great, and safe choice for transportation. After all, its massive size could easily shield you from most harm, right? Unfortunately, that’s far from the truth.

While your pickup truck does have a more rigged frame, to help with workloads, the frame makes it harder for the vehicle to collapse properly in front0end crashes. The collapsing of the frame is an important part of helping reduce the force a person occupying the vehicle experience.

While the top-ranked cars and SUV’s can manage to get top scores for safety in IIHS reports, there wasn’t a single truck in 2019 that was able to get perfect scores in everything. As attractive as many of the features a truck has, they just can’t help as well in terms of safety when compared to other vehicles.
