MODERATE OVERLAP FRONT TEST
|Structure/safety cage||Injury measures||Restraints/dummy kinematics|
|Head/neck||Chest||Leg/foot, left||Leg/foot, right|
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Chrysler Pacifica was introduced in the 2004 model year and discontinued after the 2008 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head hitting any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained reasonably well.
- Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint, as indicated by smeared greasepaint.
- A knee airbag is housed behind the knee bolster plastic trim. Injury measures on the upper and lower legs were low, but not lower than in many vehicles with conventional bolsters.
- Side airbags: head curtain airbags for all three rows of seats (standard beginning with 2007 models, optional in 2004-06 models)
- Driver inflatable knee bolster: a separate airbag in the lower instrument panel designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes
- Electronic stability control (beginning with 2007 models)
- Antilock brakes
