The safest midsize pickups of the year

Do you want to know which are the cars that have earned top marks in a small-overlap front crash test of eight midsize pickups by the Insurance institute for Highway Safety? These are the vehicles that have won the trust of many customers: The Toyota Tacoma double cab, Tacoma access cab, Chevrolet Colorado crew cab and GMC Canyon.

 

 

The Colorado and Canyon extended cab both earned "acceptable" marks, while the Nissan Frontier king cab and crew cab -- the oldest vehicles tested -- earned "marginal" ratings. IIHS said it tested two body styles of each pickup because results can differ between cab designs. Although four of the eight pickups earned "good" ratings, none of the vehicles qualify for either of IIHS's Top Safety Pick awards because they have poorly rated headlights and don't have an automatic emergency braking system.

 

 

This group of small pickups performed better in the small overlap front test than many of their larger pickup cousins. Small-overlap crashes account for about 25 percent of the serious driver injuries and deaths that occur in frontal impacts. The test involves 25 percent of a vehicle's front end on the driver side striking a 5-foot-tall barrier at 40 mph.
