The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced the 2024 model-year vehicles slated for testing under the agency’s New Car Assessment Program. The tests will be used to determine a crash rating for each vehicle per the NHTSA’s 5-Star Safety Ratings system, evaluating a number of crash test results for each vehicle. The 2024 model-year assessments include several GM models, including vehicles under the Buick, Cadillac, and Chevy brands.
The 2024 model-year GM vehicles set for testing by the NHTSA include:
- Buick Envision
- Cadillac Lyriq
- Chevy Blazer EV
- Chevy Equinox EV
- Chevy Silverado 1500
- Chevy Silverado 2500
- Chevy Traverse
- Chevy Trax
The NHTSA lists a total of 40 different 2024 model-year vehicles slated for crash testing in the latest round of assessments. According to the agency, the list represents roughly 86 percent of the new vehicle fleet. The new crash test evaluations will include assessments for frontal, side, and rollover crashes, with the NHTSA providing a rating of one to five stars in each assessment, with five stars being the highest. These safety ratings will be displayed on the window stickers for new cars, and, as the NHTSA points out, are frequently used by manufacturers in vehicle advertising as well.
“Our 5-Star Safety Ratings system continues to give Americans the information they need to choose the vehicle that’s right for them,” said NHTSA Acting Administrator Ann Carlson. “The program also encourages vehicle manufacturers to incorporate advanced vehicle safety technologies into more makes and models, ultimately reducing injuries and deaths on America’s roads.”
In addition to vehicle crash safety evaluations, the NHTSA will also test several new 2024 model-year vehicles in its Advanced Crash Avoidance Technology Systems Verification assessment. The new vehicles set for testing in this assessment include the Chevy Trax.
Looking ahead, GM will include several features as standard on all 2025 GM vehicles as part of the new OnStar One Essentials package.
