Crash Test 2004 - 2009 Chevrolet Colorado / 2004 - 2009 GMC Canyon / 2006 - 2008 Isuzu I-Series (Frontal Impact) IIHS
results also apply to: 2004-09 GMC Canyon | 2006-08 Isuzu i-series
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Marginal Good Good Marginal Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were introduced in the 2004 model
year as replacements for the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma. The Isuzu
i-series pickup was introduced in the 2006 model year and discontinued
after the 2008 model year.
During the crash, intrusion by the tire and wheel into the driver footwell
area combined with separation of the footwell from the rocker panel and
door sill caused the dummy's left foot to be trapped underneath the brake
pedal. The pedal had to be cut off to free the foot. This entrapment
resulted in a structure rating downgrade from acceptable to marginal.
Restraints/dummy kinematics â Movement of the upper part of the dummy
was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it
rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff
structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures â Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest
indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this
severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg
would be possible.
[Vintage ad] 5 Chevrolet Colorado (Thai-built) ads
It's time for me to upload some vintage ads. More vintage Thai ads
converged here more than ever in this year.
Some Chevrolet Colorado ads (as I captured) in the period of first 4 years
after debut. Why I uploaded all these? Because 1st-gen of Thai-built
Chevrolet Colorado nearly end of its time. As well as Colorado/Canyon for

Chevrolet 2008 Colorado
It must be stated that they are Thai models, unrelated with North American.
They just got intensive update since first 4 years ago, with several
changes and new features, stronger-than-ever chassis. Everything else
remained the same. As the matter of fact, this ad was launch early November
before official launch day. And of couse, near another important event...
