The following 2002 vehicles are rated for rollover resistance: Chevrolet Trailblazer 4x2 four-door utility, Chevrolet Trailblazer 4x4 four-door utility, Ford Explorer 4x2 four-door utility, Ford Explorer 4x4 four-door utility, GMC Envoy 4x2 four-door utility, GMC Envoy 4x4 four-door utility, Jeep Liberty 4x2 four-door utility, Jeep Liberty 4x4 four-door utility, Mercury Mountaineer 4x2 four-door utility, Mercury Mountaineer 4x4 four-door utility, Oldsmobile Bravada 4x2 four-door utility, and the Oldsmobile Bravada 4x4 four-door utility.

Frontal tests should be compared only within the same weight class.
