Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly," said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.

Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010
ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy public roads with regular traffic
More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads, but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.

2014 Chevrolet Suburban Spied
The new Suburban or Tahoe sibling was spotted in full camo. Don't be fooled by the oval badge, the photographers say there were bowties on the rims, and that the spied truck was accompanies by the fullsize competition from Ford and Toyota. The front grille looks a bit odd to me with the dual bars and huge badge. The front lights also look strange due to the LED lights in a row next to the circular ones. However, it maintains its classic boxy shape and is sure to be a premium fullsize SUV. These spy shots lead me to believe the new Silverado, Sierra, Escalade, Yukon and Tahoe are also on the way.
