FATAL ROLLOVER RATES OF SMALL UTILITY VEHICLES AND PICKUPS

Occupant death rates in rollover crashes for utility vehicles, pickups, and passenger cars for model year 1985-89 vehicles in single-vehicle crashes during 1986-90 were calculated. Small utility vehicles had the highest rollover death rate, followed by small pickups. More than 80% of the single-vehicle crash deaths in small utility vehicles involved rollovers. The Ford Bronco II, especially the two-wheel drive version of this utility vehicle, had the highest rollover rate, followed by the four-wheel drive Nissan 720 short bed pickup.
