The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the Sport Trac Four-by-Two and its twin the Mercury Mountaineer are the worst on the road with nearly a 35 percent chance of rolling over in single car crash.
Ford's smaller SUV--the Escape 4 by 2 had nearly a 24 percent chance of turning over in an accident and the Chevrolet Tahoe 4 by 4 could flip 26 percent of the time.

(FROM NHTSA VIDEO)


TOP OF THE CLASS....the Chrysler Pacifica four by four was viewed as the safest SUV with only a 13 percent chance of rolling over in single vehicle crash.

Of the trucks---Toyota's Tacoma 4 by 4 extended cab was the

worst....with a 28 percent chance of rolling over.
