Wow. Great observationI would rather have a solid axle that would flip me than an IFS that is designed to break off to keep me from being flipped! Additionally, at 1:13 you can see that the two harnesses that propel the vehicle down the track are different. The Jeep had a wire rope. The Bronco had a thick chain. While it appears that the harnesses detached upon impact the fact is that the setups are different and could contribute to the different outcomes.
Your point about the rock slider is compelling. I do wonder what the results would have been if theYou can clearly see why the Jeep rolls and the bronco doesn’t. Look how the rim gets pushed under the frame on the Jeep and shoved into the slider on the bronco.
Is this a fluke of this run? What would the outcome be if the wall was positioned a little different? What if the Jeep had a rock slider?
Where did you see the 2022 Jeep Wrangler has been redesigned? I was hoping they would but saw no evidence. I went ahead and ordered my JWRXR with steel bumpers anywaysIt appears the 2022 Wranglers have been redesigned in this area because on the IIHS website, the small overlap test results are now listed as only 2018-21 and the 2022 Wrangler is missing the results. I speculate that testing is underway and a rating for 2022 will be forthcoming.
