Default Ford F150, Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado All Fail Ridiculous Headlight Test

The IIHS has announced the results of their new headlight ratings test for the top trucks in the US market and the Ford F150, the Ram 1500, the Chevrolet Silverado, the Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Titan all did fairly poorly in the test – making you wonder how seriously a test can be taken when almost every vehicle in a popular segment fails the test.

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) has become one of the leaders in offering various vehicle ratings for the consumer market and one of their newest studies focuses on the function of the headlights in new models. As part of this study, the group looked at the 2016-2017 Ford F150, the 2016 Ram 1500, the 2016-2017 GMC Sierra, the 2016-2017 Chevrolet Silverado, the 2016-2017 Toyota Tundra, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, the 2017 Nissan Titan, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, the 2016 GMC Canyon, the 2016 Nissan Frontier and the 2016-2017 Toyota Tacoma…and most of them failed the test.

I know I am not impressed by the headlights on my 2012 and I have heard and read numerous complaints about the newer model headlights as well.
