Dodge Durango 1998-2003models FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Acceptable Good Good Poor Good Marginal Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The Dodge Durango was introduced in the 1998 model year. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled. As the dummy moved into the airbag, its torso went under and to the left of the bag. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar. There was far too much upward movement of the steering wheel. Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest, and right leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be likely. Forces on the foot were high enough to damage the dummy's steel "foot bone," indicating that injuries to the left foot would be likely. Forces on the left femur indicate that injuries to the upper leg would be possible. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
