2005 Comparative Rollover
Rankings available on Safercar.Gov
The number of SUVs with a four-star
rollover rating had increased substantially since U.S. Department
of Transportations National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) began rating them in 2001. That year, just
one SUV earned four-stars, whereas in 2005, 24 earned a four-star
rating as part of the newly released rollover test results for
2005 model year vehicles.
Assessing static stability factor (SSF) values the
predominant factor in NHTSAs rollover ratings the
agency found a significant improvement in SUV ratings; passenger
car and pickup truck scores have remained relatively constant.
For 2005 model year tested vehicles, the highest rated SUV was
the Ford Freestyle 4x4, earning 4-stars and a 13 percent chance
of rollover, if involved in a single-vehicle crash. The Freestyle
matches the 2005 Chrysler Pacifica, a carryover vehicle from 2004,
which also earned four stars and a 13 percent chance of rollover
during the 2004 model year testing.
For pickups, the highest rated vehicle was the Chevrolet Colorado
4x4 and its twin, the GMC Canyon, the Dodge Dakota 4x4, and the
Dodge Ram 1500 4x2 each earning four stars and a 17
percent chance of rollover if involved in a single-vehicle crash.
For vans, the highest rated vehicle was the Chrysler PT Cruiser,
earning four stars and a 13 percent chance of rollover if
involved in a single-vehicle crash. For passenger cars, the
highest rated vehicle was the Ford Mustang, earning five stars
and an 8 percent chance of rollover if involved in a single-vehicle
It is encouraging to see the positive impact our rollover
rating program has had on making vehicles more stable,
particularly on SUVs, said NHTSA Administrator, Jeffrey W.
Runge, M.D. Today we have twenty-four MY2005 SUVs with a 4-star
rollover rating whereas 2 years ago, we had only five.
