Think driving a truck is 'safer' than a car?

Lots of folks always have the misconception that a pickup truck is safer than a car, given the frame and the higher ride height, etc, often times gives you a good feeling of security.

Well, the IIHS latest test results show otherwise. Sadly, the latest rated pickups don't do too hot.

The IIHS tested the new Silverado, Ram Pickup and Nissan Titan.

Interestingly enough, the new F-150, Tundra and Ridgeline were all top safety picks by the IIHS.
