Ford Explorer Rollover- Shockingly Unstable Vehicle
This video, with cameras from three different angles, shows some simple testing of a Ford Explorer with a tire tread separation that revealed a shockingly unstable vehicle in these test circumstances, worse than even the test engineers anticipated.
The driver, helmeted and strapped into a racing harness, was not seriously injured, but it is not hard to imagine that a person in a regular seatbelt would have been seriously injured or worse.

Test Drive the 1998 Ford Explorer Sport
In this video I give a short tour and test drive of a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this suv while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I show the suv idling as well as take it on a thorough test drive through the city and highway on various surfaces. A thorough drive of this suv designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly," said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
