Ford F-150 Received 2 Stars Out Of 5 For Rollover Ratings. The Chevrolet Avalanche and the four-wheel-drive version of the Ford F-150 SuperCrew received two stars out of five for rollover resistance from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Reuters reported.
The result of the testing caught the ire of a lot of people in the United States as they appealed to authorities to give justice to the car buyers. The authorities, on the other hand welcome the appeal of people to make a thorough investigation to the case to finally give justice to the issue on the F-150.
The very low ratings by authorities should set as a lesson that car manufacturers must be aware of the hazards and dangers on the road if the vehicles don’t pass the rollover ratings.
2 Stars Mean 30 to 40 Percent Of Rollover Risk
NHTSA says two stars mean a vehicle has a 30 to 40 percent risk of rolling over in a single-vehicle crash. Two SUVs, the two-door version of the Ford Explorer and the Land Rover Discovery, also received two stars.
Automakers oppose the tests, the story said, because they rely only on a vehicle’s dimensions and weight, and don’t involve any actual driving.
