1997 Ford Explorer | Rear Crash Test (Fire Potential) by NHTSA | CrashNet1
85 km/h (53 mph) offset moving deformable barrier rear impact. This test is for study of post-collision fire potential of four-wheel-drive SUV. The moving barrier impacted the test vehicle in the rear on the filler neck side (left side) with a 70 % overlap. The overlap was computed by measuring the widest part of the vehicle body vertically in line with the rear axle and multiplying this width by 0.70. For this particular test, the vehicle width vertically in line with the rear wheel centerline was measured to be 1785 mm, resulting in a desired overlap of 1249 mm. The moving barrier's total mass was 1370 kg (3020 Ibs.) The 1997 Ford Explorer had a calculated test mass of 2249 kg There were no fires identified during this crash test.
