Toyota Tundra
Front impact: Good
Side Impact: Good
Whiplash protection: Good
Stability Control: Standard
Top Safety Pick: Yes

The Toyota Tundra, tested previously by the Insurance Institute, was the first truck to win a "Top Safety Pick" award.

That means it earned top marks for front, side and whiplash protection and it's also available with electronic stability control, a system that helps the driver maintain control during abrupt manuevers. (In the Tundra's case, stability control is standard equipment.)

In federal government crash tests, the Tundra earned four out of a possible five stars for front-crash protection, but it wasn't tested for side impact.

NEXT: Ford F-150
