A frontal small overlap crash test was conducted on a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 at 64.5 km/h and a 25 ± 1
percent overlap on the driver side. A Hybrid III 50th percentile male dummy was positioned in the driver seat with the
lap/shoulder belt fastened.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 Double Cab were redesigned for the 2014 model year. Beginning with 2016 models,
the vehicle frame was reinforced and the body welds in the door hinge pillar and sill were strengthened to improve occupant
protection in small overlap crashes.

During the crash, the dummy’s head loaded and remained engaged with the frontal airbag until rebound. The
dummy’s maximum forward excursion was 299 mm; however, head interaction with the frontal airbag was stable and
the steering wheel vertical and lateral movement was not greater than 10 cm. The side curtain airbag deployed and has
sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.

The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 22 at the footrest and 20 cm at
the left portion of the toepan. Upper interior intrusion measured 7 cm at the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel.

The left lower tibia A-P moment was -222 Nm, significantly contributing to the left lower tibia index of 1.14. The left
tibia axial force was -9.4 kN. The left resultant foot acceleration was 338 g.
