Test details: The Dodge Dakota was redesigned for the 2005 model year. The Mitsubishi Raider was introduced in the 2006 model year. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury. 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 both tibias indicate that injuries to the lower left leg would be likely and injuries to the lower right leg would be possible.
