Which Truck is the Best at Protecting Drivers From Injury?

Trucks all advertise themselves as "tough." Drivers of these pickups are also less likely to buckle up, according to IIHS research, possibly because they believe their trucks provide adequate protection even without a belt (or because they do not fear death).

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just dropped a truth-bomb on us, though. Not all trucks are safe.

The results of the full-size pickup small-overlap crash test were published earlier this week, and almost every truck tested failed to protect drivers' legs and feet from severe injury. The worst performers crushed the test dummy's legs like they were juicing an orange.

Not the F-150, though.

The 2016 Ford F-150 was the only truck tested to earn the top safety rating in all crash-test categories, and receive a Top Safety Pick. The cabin and foot well of the F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew maintained shape with minimal intrusions, keeping the driver and passengers safe and sound.
