LIGHT TRUCK AGGRESSIVITY STUDY - TASK 3 ANALYSIS REPORT
The report summarizes the work performed and presents analysis of the relative aggressivity of a light truck compared to a full-sized passenger car in frontal, side and rear collisions. The analyses are based on comparisons of pertinent structural and occupant response parameters from the conducted tests with available data from previous NHTSA-sponsored collisions. Although the data base for the analysis was insufficient for an exact determination of light truck aggressivity, the results of this study appear to indicate that the light truck is slightly more aggressive than a full-size passenger car.
