This muscle car scored highest in key safety test – CNBC

Posted: Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Fiat Chrysler, the parent company of Dodge, told CNBC in a statement, “No single test determines overall vehicle safety. FCA U.S. vehicles meet or exceed all applicable government safety requirements. FCA U.S. urges all motorists to follow all applicable traffic laws and maintain control of their vehicles accordingly.”

All three cars meet federal motor vehicle safety standards. They were not given an overall rating by IIHS.

The tests come at a time when the Big Three U.S. automakers are pushing muscle cars that are more powerful than ever before.

Earlier this year, GM executive Mark Reuss took reporters for test drives in the new Chevy Camaro ZL1, which boasts 640 horsepower.

“Putting that much power to the ground and controlling it and making someone be able to feel like a professional driver, even though they may not be, is magical,” he said.
