Test details: The Ford Ranger and Mazda B Series were redesigned for the 1998 model year. Extended cab models with four doors were introduced in the 1999 model year, and this version was used in the side impact test. NOTE: the ratings are based only on the driver and the side-facing rear jump seats weren't tested because they are not recommended for safe transport. Injury measures: Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be likely in a crash of this severity. Serious neck injuries and a fracture of the pelvis would also be possible. Rear passenger — No passenger dummy present - jump seats not recommended for safe transport. Head protection: Driver — Although the intruding barrier did not hit the dummy's head in this test, the head was not protected from contacts outside the vehicle. This indicates that only slightly different crash circumstances could produce a direct hit to a person's head. Rear passenger — No passenger dummy present - jump seats not recommended for safe transport.
