What makes for a top safety pick from IIHS? There are several factors that go into this grading system. IIHS tests vehicles for crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and different safety features. Crashworthiness looks at how the vehicle responds in a crash from multiple angles. For example, there are crashworthiness tests that take a look at the driver side, passenger side, front, roof strength, and more. Also, as part of crash avoidance, IIHS is taking a closer look at the headlights of vehicles. They are making sure that the headlights are evaluated for their effectiveness.

According to the IIHS release, the truck avoided collisions in 12 and 25 mph track tests, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s criteria.”
