2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Ace Crash Tests
These new crash-test ratings for the Silverado and Sierra are better than those earned by key competitors. For example, the best-selling Ford F-150 received a 4-star overall rating, but its frontal-impact crash-test rating measured just 3 stars due to a 3-star individual assessment for the front passenger. Plus, the Ford F-150 with 4WD receives a 3-star rollover resistance rating, compared with the Chevy/GMC models' 4-star rating.
The Ram 1500 performs better than the Ford with regard to frontal-impact protection, but the 4WD models get a 3-star rollover resistance rating. Nissan's Titan 4WD is also rated 3 stars for rollover resistance, but the NHTSA has not performed crash tests on a Titan since it overhauled its testing program back in 2011.
As this article is written, the NHTSA had not assessed the updated 2014 Toyota Tundra, which previously matched the Ram 1500's ratings. Unless Toyota has made changes designed to improve crash performance and increase resistance to rollover, it appears that General Motors is building the safest full-size pickup trucks for the 2014 model year.
