No pickup trucks on the IIHS list of the best vehicles for teens

Consumer Reports found a satisfying new pickup truck

Having a teenage driver can be a nerve-wracking experience. Teens often want to explore their freedom and the world, but they are also at greater risk of accidents, especially serious ones. Their inexperience makes them less responsive to dangerous situations than older drivers, making it even more important that they are in a safe vehicle. The Insurance Institute for Road Safety (IIHS) tests vehicles and conducts research into driving behavior and safety. It publishes a list of the safest vehicles for teens every year. The most recent list is full of good new and used vehicles for teens, but none of them are pickup trucks.
