NHTSA Releases List of Model Year 2007 Vehicles
For Crash and Rollover Testing

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the 2007 model year vehicles that will undergo crash and rollover testing as part of the agency’s annual consumer safety ratings program.

A total of 38 passenger cars, 40 sport utility vehicles, three vans, and five pickups will be tested in NHTSA’s crash test program. This testing will provide consumers with access to frontal crash ratings for almost 84 percent of all 2007 models offered for sale in the U.S. Side crash ratings will be available for nearly 70 percent of the 2007 fleet.

The agency also will test 15 passenger cars, 24 sport utility vehicles, two vans, and four pickups for rollover resistance. Together with vehicles already rated, rollover ratings will become available as each testing is complete for approximately 85 percent of the 2007 model year passenger vehicle fleet.

In addition to these new vehicles being rated by the agency, NHTSA also has posted the crash test results and rollover ratings on the safercar.gov web site for various carry-over vehicles—those cars and trucks that have not undergone significant design changes in 2007 from the previous model year.

NHTSA uses a consumer-friendly ratings system – ranging from one to five stars – that makes it easy to compare the predicted safety performance of tested vehicles. This important information can also be found on new car window stickers beginning in September 2007.

The ratings for the 2007 models, as well as for previous years, can be found at www.safercar.gov. The information is also available by calling NHTSA's toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline, (888) 327-4236.
