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.

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.
