Here are some video's of the newish HD's crash tested. Two tests each... one as a front on collision and one a side pole impact. Most are crew cabs with the exception of the Silverado 2500 and the F150 side pole impact.

2012 Super Duty

side pole crash test

frontal crash test

2014 Ram 2500

2015 Silverado 2500

side pole crash test (this is a double cab, not a crew cab)

I didn't link to the Ram 1500's in these year models but here are some popular 1500's that don't share bodies with HD trucks.

2011 F150

2011 side pole crash test (note: this is a supercab)

Frontal Crash Test

2012 and 2014 Tundra

2015 Expedition

2015 Suburban

2001 Ram 1500

Thanks Jeremiah. Good info. I have the 2015 Chevy 2500HD. It pretty much looked to me that all of the 3 big guys fared about the same.

Thanks for putting this together. It would be interesting to see what would happen to any of the big three if they were pulling 12-16K of FW in a front end crash at the same speed as these.
