LIGHT TRUCK AGGRESSIVITY STUDY - TEST REPORT 2 - TRUCK-TO-CAR 90 DEGREES LEFT SIDE IMPACT TESTS
The test report presents the results of Tests 3051-3 and 3051-4, 90 degrees left side truck-to-car collisions. Two 1979 Chevrolet C-10, 8-foot, full-bed, 8-cylinder, pickup trucks (bullet vehicle) were used for the tests. The car (target vehicle) used in Test No. 3051-3 was a 1978 Plymouth Horizon 4-door sedan. The car used in Test No. 3051-4 was a 1979 Chevrolet Impala 4-door sedan. The centerline of the bullet vehicle struck the H-point of the driver's side of the target vehicle. The object of these tests is to provide truck-to-car collision data. The crash test data from this program will be used to study the aggressivity of light trucks compared to passenger cars, support current vehicle standards, and provide information to upgrade future standards.
