Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2019-24 models

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained reasonably well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

Intrusion of the toepan contributed to a moderate risk of injuries to the left foot and right lower leg.

Action shot taken during the passenger-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame and dashboard after the crash test indicates that the passenger's survival space was not maintained well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the passenger dummy’s head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

Extensive intrusion of the dashboard, toepan, and door hinge pillar contributed to a significant risk of injury to the right lower leg and a moderate risk to the left lower leg.

View of the vehicle after the crash showing the airbags and damage to the occupant compartment.

During the crash, the driver dummy's head hit the steering wheel hard through the airbag.

The rear passenger dummy's head remained a safe distance from the front seatback.

Rear passenger dummy injury values indicate a moderate risk of injury to the head or neck and chest. During the crash, the shoulder belt remained in an ideal position on the dummy’s chest.

The rear passenger dummy's lap belt moved from the ideal position on the pelvis onto the abdomen, increasing the risk of abdominal injuries.

Tested vehicle: 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Crew Cab 4wd

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab were redesigned for the 2019 model year. Two tests of the Silverado were conducted because the rear passenger data acquisition system failed during the first test. Driver dummy injuries, rear dummy restraints and kinematics and structural ratings are based on both tests. The rear dummy injury values are based only on the second test.

Low beams
On the straightaway, visibility was fair on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good on both right curves, fair on the sharp left curve and inadequate on the gradual left curve.

The low beams created excessive glare.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and fair on the left side. On curves, visibility was good on both right curves and fair on both left curves.

High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on the straightaway and on both left curves.
