Restraints and dummy kinematics

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 well.

The dummy's head bottomed out the airbag and hit the steering wheel underneath. Head acceleration from this hit was high.

Forces on both legs and feet were low, indicating that significant injury was unlikely.

Side

Rating applies to 2004-09 models

Tested vehicle: 2009 Nissan Titan SE Crew Cab 4x2 with optional front and rear head curtain airbags and optional front seat-mounted torso airbags

The Nissan Titan was introduced in the 2004 model year. Two tests of a 2009 Titan were conducted, one with optional side airbags for the driver and rear passenger, and one without. These vehicles are rated separately, except that the structural ratings for both vehicles are based on both tests. Beginning with 2010 models, the side airbags were made standard.

View of the vehicle and barrier just after the crash test.

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the side airbags and damage to the occupant compartment.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side airbags.

Because the side curtain airbag did not fully cover the window opening, the dummy's head continued to move outward during the crash.

View of the vehicle and barrier just after the crash test.

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the damage to the occupant compartment.

Action shot taken during the side impact crash test showing the driver dummy's head leaning well outward and approaching the window sill.

Intrusion of the B-pillar and door sill into the occupant compartment is apparent in this view.

Roof strength

Rating applies to 2004-15 models

Tested vehicle: 2011 Nissan Titan Crew Cab 2wd

Need to confirm that rating carries back to possibly as far as 2004 and that in fact, one version is too heavy for Acceptable rating.
