The Jeep Liberty was redesigned for the 2008 model year. The Dodge Nitro was introduced in the 2007 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head contacted the side curtain airbag, which had deployed during the crash.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left knee and tibia indicate that injuries to the knee and lower leg would be possible.
