As a rule of thumb, the larger cars and trucks are usually the easiest and cheapest to insure, as long as they do not do heavy damage to other vehicles in an accident. If you total another person’s vehicle, your rates will definitely increase.

The cost to insure a specific make and model will fluctuate as time passes. Especially if it is brand new model to hit the market. Insurance carriers will examine how the vehicle performs in crash tests, as well as the average payout on accident claims. Insurance companies also look at how durable or dependable the vehicle is, based on basic maintenance and repair costs
