Crash Test 2010 - 2011 Chevrolet Colorado /GMC Canyon (Side Impact) IIHS

Chevrolet Colorado crew cab 2010-11 models results also apply to: 2010-11 GMC Canyon crew cab | 2006-08 Isuzu i-series SIDE IMPACT TEST WITH STANDARD SIDE AIRBAGS OVERALL EVALUATION: Injury measures Head protection Structure/safety cage Head/neck Torso Pelvis/leg Driver Rear passenger Important: Side impact crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle type and weight categories. Good Acceptable Marginal Poor Test details: The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were introduced in the 2004 model year as replacements for the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma. Side airbags became standard beginning with 2010 models (they had been optional in 2004-09 models). Structure ratings are based on this test and on an earlier test of a 2008 Colorado model without side airbags. These side impact crash test ratings also apply to the Isuzu i-series pickup, which was introduced in the 2006 model year, because crew cab models had standard side airbags. The i-series was discontinued after the 2008 model year. Injury measures: Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries plus a fracture of the pelvis would be likely in a crash of this severity. In addition, loading to the shoulder was excessive. Rear passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low. Head protection: Driver — The side curtain airbag adequately covered the window opening near the dummy's head during deployment, but the head then moved outward and downward into near proximity with the intruding barrier. Although the barrier did not hit the dummy's head in this test, this near miss indicates that only slightly different crash circumstances could produce a direct hit to a person's head. Rear passenger — The side curtain airbag did not deploy properly, and the dummy's head was hit by the window frame of the rear passenger door and the pillar behind the door. This impact did not produce high head injury measures, but the head protection is inadequate.

Chevy Colorado | 2010 | Side Crash Test | NHTSA | CrashNet1
2010 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon NHTSA Side Impact Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the driver and rear passenger seats (driver's side), respectively, and are secured with seat belts. The side crash rating represents an intersection-type collision by having a 3,015-pound barrier moving at 38.5 mph (62km/h) into a standing vehicle. The moving barrier is covered with material that is crushable to replicate the front of a vehicle. -- Thumbs up for the crash dummies! Do you think this vehicle is safe? Would you buy it?
