Headlights on 2017 Pickup Trucks Aren’t Looking Too Bright, Literally…

Posted by Poquet Auto on Nov 8, 2016 9:23:36 AM

Even if your new 2017 pickup truck has the fancy, high-cost headlights, you may not be seeing as much as you should.

In a recent test, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that almost every new, 2017 pickup truck features headlights that deliver poor light coverage. In fact, only two trims (which are different levels of a particular model) of the Honda Ridgeline (the RTL-E and Black Edition) received the top "Good" rating, while only three other trucks were rated better than "Poor." Those models were the:

  • Nissan Titan, which was rated "Marginal."
  • GMC Sierra, which was rated "Acceptable" and "Marginal" for some models.
  • Ram 1500, which was rated “Marginal” only for models with base halogen reflector headlights.

Even the best-selling vehicle in the United States, the Ford F-150, is rated as "Poor" for all trim levels!

So how do they measure headlight performance?

The IIHS looks both at how much light the high and low beam settings shine in corners and on straightaways. The agency also looks at how much glare the lights produce to ensure that they aren't blinding oncoming traffic.

All-in-all, here's how the 2017 models performed:

Fortunately, for those afraid of the minivan, Kelley Blue Book did us a favor and compiled a list of their top 16 family cars for 2016 (only 3 are minivans, don’t worry).
