Looks like the wiring for whatever instrumentation they were running might've popped the rear window.

Beats being dead. ;)
Not if your job is being a crash dummy. The poor thing does not even get the option to die. Almost reminds me of my last job.

p.s. watching the driver side window coming up like that, I will think twice about keeping my arm out of the window.

Love watching these crash tests, I drive a little more defensive, at least for the first 30 minutes!

Impressive the front doors open just as well after the entire front has been crushed.

Truck has an overall 5 star rating with the only areas of concern being the frontal crash and roll over which are 4 stars.

Will be interesting to see how it fares in the IIHS testing - some of which is more stringent than the government tests.

So, even the crash testers couldn't find anything but Lariats on the lot. ROFL.

Shame they pull the battery, that mass is absolutely going to change the physics of a wreck. I get the safety factor, but you would think they could install an equivalent hunk of lead or something.

The way the mirrors flex, and the way the front windows pop up out of the doors (they were rolled down) looked crazy to me. Overall, looked decently safe other than the amount of rear glass that's going to rain down on my kids in the back seat, but maybe that was partially due to the equipment they were running through the rear window.
Ways to avoid “rain of glass on kids”

1. don’t let kids in the truck. (My preferred solution as a bachelor)
2. Don’t crash.

Wow, how’d they get that charging door to close first try? It always takes two shots at it for me! 🤣
