That F150 hasn't been in production for three years, and the design dates back 10 years or so. The new one did much, much better in the same test.

It should be taken as a sign of how tough current crash test stadards are, not a sign of how crappy Ford vehicles perform in crash tests.

Look at Geely CK; it is built off Daewoo Lanos chassis which used to pass US crash test standard in the late 90s, but CK failed the current version of test and Geely is forced to redesign on their own.

It will be a major challenge for Chinese vehicles to even pass the US and EU crash and emissions test. The entry barriers into developed market are just too high for Chinese to overcome.

Chinese venders really need to have Japanese masters to teach them how to design and build proper vehicles.

Here's a video that tells the story of the notorious ADAC test in more detail.

That's only 35 MPH. The current standard is 40 MPH, which increases the impact force by 31%.

Just remember that Isuzu Rodeo was an early 90's design and was never meant to pass 40 MPH tests.

I can appreciate the value of progress, but on the other hand I started driving in 1988 using a car built in 1978. I didn't feel particularly afraid then, and I don't now.

My current car collection is as follows:

'77 porsche
'85 lotus (for sale if anyone wants one!)
'95 BMW
'95 lotus (new acquisition with 275 horsepower hehehehe)
'04 chery

of all these cars, only the BMW has an airbag.

So whilst I apreciate that if something doesn't meet current regulations it isn't allowed to be sold, I am not about to get too stressed if someone offers me a ride in a car that meets '90s regs but not the latest regs.

there we go again, crash test is not only about kinetic energy= mvsquared, theres alot to do with conservation of momentum, and mechanical energy, and metal bending shit.
