I want to see how many people cancel due to the crash test rating results :unsure:
Exactly

I couldn't care less, not canceling my order!

IMO they wouldn't have used Boron steel and made CoPilot 360 standard just to have it perform as poorly as the Wrangler.
Seriously? Not good.

The old saying "boron is for morons unless there's a war on" still applies.

You missed the point. But I expect that 🤣
Do you honestly think Ford didn't study that Wrangler rollover? Then invested in standard safety features and more expensive materials just to under perform the main competition? 🤣🤣🤣 Yeah that sounds like FoMoCo 🤪
The same Ford that developed the 2.7 that blows up? The top that creaks, leaks and delaminates? The same Ford that can’t paint tailgates or install the correct seats? The same Ford that puts hoses so close they puncture themselves and leak coolant all over the ground? I agree, that does sound like Ford.

Just stop, you are truly making yourself look dumb. The Wrangler has a poor roll over rating, not overall crash rating. It’s because ::gasp:: physics.

Sounds like you are looking for a Subaru Outback 😘

You mean the SFA physics? 🤔

So were Corvairs because Ralph Nader lied.

The GM Bean Counters ruined the Corvair's rep with pricing out the swaybars on the first MY.

You drive a Corsa or Monza and it was a totally different driving experience. Corvairs could have been America's answer to the Porche.
100% agree. Nader has eventually led to the boring model diversity we are now experiencing.

Excellent post.

Nah, just proof we had it great in the good Ole days before participation trophies. :cool:
Things were much better when modetate impacts almost assuredly resulted in fatalities or serious injures and we could be exposed to all the lead paint we want! Btw it is your generation who invented participation trophies, it’s not like we thought of them on our own then pooled our lemonade stand money together to buy them. Plus I played 3 seasons of sports my entire life and never once got one, I think their existence is over exaggerated, but whatever makes ya feel better pops

This post is stupid
Sorry, if It went over your head. I would try to explain my sarcasm to you but you probably lack a sense of humor as well.

If you're worried about shit like crash ratings, you should probably just stay in the Subaru with your mask on.
I've been thinking about how to respond to this comment. If you weren't interested in the post you could have just moved on, but instead you chose to insult me. Are you a juvenile? Yes of course I "worry about shit like crash ratings" because why wouldn't I? I have a family and why would I put my safety or theirs at risk if it has poor ratings? Which, by the way I don't expect it to. I just though people would find it helpful to know the information is coming out next month. I didn't expect so many douchebag comments.

Between the Boron steel, aerospace grade aluminum, and marine grade vinyl, I’ll feel safe.

Having spent the past decade and a half of my life mitigating the outcomes of significant traffic accidents I think it’s great how safety has improved more over the past decade than at any other point in automotive history. I’m not sure why you fragile boomers need to politicize everything.

Will the Broncos ratings prevent me from buying one? No, almost certainly not considering it’s clear how much effort Ford has put forth here, I’d be shocked if the tests revealed something significant. But I’m still interested because after seeing what can happen to occupants of unsafe vehicles time and time again I’d rather not subject my children to that just because I survived it.

tldr: Nobody cares about back in my day bullshit, and I’m curious but not overly concerned about the Broncos results
Dude he was was just reminiscing no need to hate. Says more about you than about him

I expect MGV to keep me safe as well, just not in a way the IIHS evaluates. Unless they started evaluating the fallout from questionable burritos and a few too many margaritas 😂
