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.

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!
