1. Chevy Colorado Extended Cab

Total deaths per millions vehicles: 54

Most consumers do not realize that even larger automobiles can put passengers and the auto drivers at risk. The Chevy Colorado Extended Cab is one of the most deadly cars on the road today with seeing 54 per million registered vehicles. For the Colorado, the majority of the deaths came as the result of wrecks involving the popular pickup truck with no other automobiles involved. The truck is equipped with a 200 horsepower 2.5 liter, four cylinder engine that offers 191 lb-ft of torque. Consumers who purchase the extended cab version of the truck will often upgrade to the 3.6 liter V-6 engine that is rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The Colorado is the first new, midsized truck line produced by Chevrolet in years, and it can be expected that the manufacturer will work to get the death rate per million cars registered to drop over time.
