Ford f-150. Напоминаем, что в краш-тестах IIHS принята четырёхуровневая шкала оценок: «хорошая защита», «приемлемая», «незначительная» и «плохая» (Good, Acceptable, Marginal и Poor).

Recall that in crash tests the IIHS adopted the four-level rating scale: “good protection”, “acceptable”, “minor” and “bad” (Good, Acceptable, Marginal and Poor).

The insurance Institute for highway safety USA (IIHS) conducted crash tests of eleven pickups. This type of machinery in the past acted not too successfully. The inspection found that progress, all the more interesting that it included a shot with a small overlap of the passenger side. Often the results for the model are worse than the same test with the driver’s side. The results are curious: pick-up Ford F-150 only received the highest rating in all crash tests without exception, however, the only car in this portion of the test, earned a rating of Top Safety Pick, — Honda Ridgeline.

For reference: in addition to frontal impact with a small overlap (both sides), the Institute conducts crash tests moderate overlap, side impact test roof strength, head restraints, forward collision warning, head light and mounting child seats.

Of all the pickups, only three rated as “good” in the test with a small overlap (passenger side) is a F-150, Ram 1500 and Nissan Titan. One pickup received the lowest rating “poor” — Toyota Tundra. The photo shows the results of the strike F-150 (left) and Tundra. The deformation of the passenger compartment in the area of the legs to the right they made up 12.7 and 38 cm, respectively.

Although in all crash tests of the F-150 is made, check the head light earned him the lowest rating “poor”. Weak lights did not allow Ford to tab Top Safety Pick. Pickup truck the Ridgeline, by contrast, was an excellent head light. It depends on the configuration, but in the final evaluation, the Institute takes into consideration the best option (in this case, the version of the Ridgeline with the middle led). But the impact with a small overlap Honda has surrendered only a rating of “acceptable.” But along with the good system of automatic braking it was enough for a rating of Top Safety Pick.

Returning to the Ford, it should be noted that although he was one of three pickups, which received a rating of “good” blow with a small overlap of the passenger side of the body, in this test, the test that is the F-150 called the best (mannequin showed no potential injuries, belts and pillows completed its task without hesitation).

Senior researcher at IIHS David zubi says: three models received “good” rating, two “acceptable”, five “minor protection” and one “bad.” The overlap is 25%, rigid barrier at 64 km/h. In a real situation can be a barrier not only cars, but also wood, road facility. This one is tough. Often a power structure with external parties are not sufficiently ready for it.

The current test has again shown that manufacturers do not always reinforce the right and left halves of the body equally. But the test on the passenger side slowly pushing the company to the necessity of equal strength. Here are the results of eleven pickups in the “small overlap” (passenger side/driver’s side): Toyota Tacoma — acceptable/good, the Chevrolet Colorado is slightly/nice GMC Canyon — slightly/well, the Nissan Frontier — slightly/slightly, the Honda Ridgeline is acceptable/good, Ford F-150 — good/good, Ram 1500 (graduation after July 2018) — good/well, Nissan Titan — good/well Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — slightly/well, the GMC Sierra 1500 is slightly/well, Toyota Tundra — bad/slightly.

Interesting point: like Ford, that dim lights are not allowed Tacoma to earn the Top Safety Pick label. As for the slowing cars, the basic power structure of a pickup Frontier dates back to the 2005 model year, and the Tundra for 2007, according to the Institute IIHS, in comments to the new tests. This is the oldest design tested in this round.
