Earlier this month, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) introduced a new crash test that would test the safety of 10 different variants of pickup trucks belonging to major auto dealers Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Ram, and Toyota. The test works by replicating a situation where the vehicle runs off the road and the front end hits a tree or a pole at 65 km/h. The results of this test could be quite influential considering the intense competition that currently exists in the truck segment. So far in 2016, Ford has sold over 186,000 F-150s. In comparison, Chevy has sold 128,965 Silverados in the first quarter of the year and Fiat-Chrysler has sold 113,367 Rams.
