Miracle ( not a nightmare) as been called by many . Hey he had minor

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.
► 2015 Chevy Colorado WORLD PREMIERE
The 2.5L and 3.6L engines offered in the Colorado are based on proven
designs found in other Chevrolet vehicles, but tuned uniquely for truck
duty -- including more torque at lower rpm -- for a more confident feeling
of power when the Colorado is loaded or pulling a trailer.
The 2.5L four is estimated at 193 horsepower (146 kW) and 184
lb-ft of torque (253 Nm), with approximately 90 percent of the peak torque
available from 2,000 rpm to 6,200 rpm. The 3.6L engine is estimated at 302
kW) and 270 lb-ft of torque (366 Nm). SAE certification of the power
ratings is pending.
Aluminum blocks and forged-steel crankshafts, along with dual-overhead
camshafts with variable valve timing, direct injection and jet-spray piston
cooling are features shared on both engines. A number of extended-life
components can help reduce maintenance intervals and reduce the cost of
All models are matched with a six-speed automatic that complements the
truck-tuned engines with features that make hauling and trailering easier
and more comfortable, including auto grade braking and a tow/haul mode.
Chevrolet will continue to work on and develop the Colorado until the start
of production in 2014. The content of this release is based on current GM
testing and is subject to change.
