The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given 34 vehicles its "Top Safety Pick" award for 2008. The "Top Safety Pick" award is given to vehicles that earn a "good" rating after front, side, and rear impact crash tests conducted by IIHS. According to an IIHS Press Release, "compared with last year, automakers have more than doubled the number of vehicles that meet criteria for Top Safety Pick." Winners for 2008 include eight vehicles manufactured by Ford and its subsidiaries, and seven Honda (or Honda-subsidiary) vehicles. The Toyota Tundra became the first pickup truck to make the "Top Safety Pick" list.
