Pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles are such powerful vehicles. With bodies and wheels built to travel in extreme weather conditions and on rough terrain, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles have become so popular in both Canada and the United States of America. The recent modifications in the design of both vehicles have transformed them both to becoming the least safe to the safest vehicles one can use.

Dodge is a well-known manufacturer of sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. It carries a long history of producing powerhouse vehicles for commercial and military purposes. Work vehicles and military vehicles were all designed for carrying heavy equipment across rough terrain. However, lighter versions of these vehicles were manufactured later on, eventually leading to family SUVs of today.

Today’s SUVs have improved safety and security features compared to their earlier counterparts. Recent light truck models have traction control, cruise control, anti-lock braking system, air bags, and seatbelts to minimize injuries during car accidents. Some even have navigational equipment like compasses and GPS systems. To cater more to private owners, Private SUVs have entertainment systems ranging from radio players to lcd screen displays to keep both drivers and passengers entertained while on the road.

One of the most well-known SUVs is the Dodge Journey, characterized by its strong and square form. The Dodge Journey is has a front-wheel drive system, like most family sedans. Unlike older SUV models, the Dodge Journey is equipped with four-speed automatic transmission, making it a joy to drive.

Unlike the Journey, the Dodge Durango is an all-wheel or four-wheel drive, meaning all four wheels can be controlled. This makes the Dodge Durango suitable for off-road travel or when driving on snow-covered roads during winter. Like the Dodge Journey, Dodge Edmonton dealerships sell Durangos that have automatic transmission.

The rather square-looking Dodge Nitro is another four-wheel drive vehocle. Like the Dodge Durango, this is considerably reliable for Edmonton Dodge vehicle owners because of its anti-whiplash front head restraints. Although the anti-lock braking system keeps the Nitro from stopping abruptly, there might be accidents that can still bring the Nitro to a sudden halt; these head restraints keep passengers from hurting their neck.

Like its sport utility vehicle counterparts, the Edmonton Dodge Ram offers latest in providing comfort, and security on the road. There are regular cab trucks that provide a lot of cargo space and crew or quad cabs that can accommodate more passengers. For more information on light trucks and SUVs, visit Dodge.com or Dodge.ca.
