Most dangerous car in America.”

It’s the title no automaker wants to have, but was given to the Dodge Ram by 24/7 Wall St., a financial publication that put together a list of the worst cars on the road based on testing scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Consumer Reports, the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration and consumer analyst JD Power.

The Ram 1500, a long-standing high-selling pickup truck in the US, has a safety track record that "has long been unimpressive," said 24/7 Wall St., noting poor crash testing results. It also scored a poor 2/5 from JD Power's Initial Quality Study.

In second place was the Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab, which earned poor side impact grades and marginal grades for rollover, along with a recall last year due to seatbelt safety concerns.

Fordcosworth, not mad at you, but the story as I was skeptical of what they reported. Sooo, I dug in by going to the actual web sites to see what the real story was.

And the story you posted is a Cherry Picked Story that is so full of misleading facts it is unbelievable. 

They cherry picked auto's over the last multiple years of cars / trucks / suv's. 

Here is the actual real postings by 24/7 wall street:

2016 ratings

2015 ratings

Neither of the Big 3 Trucks are in the last two years rankings and I had to go back to the first generation colorado crew cab to see where they even came up as it being 2nd place.

This is the type of PISS POOR MEDIA REPORTING that is hurting our country. Check the facts, verify and post a real story not just one that is clearly a personal agenda piece.
