..."This group of small pickups performed better in the small overlap front test than many of their larger pickup cousins," says David Zuby, the Institute's executive vice president and chief research officer. "The exception was the Nissan Frontier, which hasn't had a structural redesign since the 2005 model year."

The small overlap test is the most challenging of the IIHS crashworthiness evaluations. Added in 2012, the test replicates what happens when a vehicle runs off the road and hits a tree or pole or clips another vehicle that has crossed the center line…

...The Toyota Tacoma crew cab, which Toyota calls the Double Cab, was the top performer in the small overlap test…

...Headlights are a dim spot for all the small pickups evaluated. None are available with anything other than poor-rated headlights. The Institute began rating headlights last year to encourage manufacturers to improve nighttime driving visibility and reduce glare for oncoming drivers...


What the industry calls a "midsize pickup" IIHS calls a "small pickup". The Honda Ridgeline is not included in this test group, because IIHS categorizes it as a "full size pickup" (based on payload capacity I guess).

There hasn't been a "small pickup" since the Ford Ranger/Mazda B series/Nissan Kingcab type trucks

The Ridgeline's a decent truck that'll do what most truck buyers need it to, but full size? It most certainly is not!

What would that make say an F-350? A big rig? lol
