What do you need to find in the way of safety for your next new or used trucks in Canada?  Here is what Edmunds.com has to say on the subject, “Most trucks offer basic safety equipment like front airbags and seatbelts for all passengers. Side curtain airbags and stability control are now commonplace on full-size models. Some compact models perform poorly in crash tests, and one should be mindful of rear jump seats that aren’t designed to protect someone in a crash.”  However, you should also know that GMC trucks perform amazingly in the safety tests and have no trouble in any category when it comes to keeping you and your loved ones safe on the road.
