Slalom Test
Although most SUV and pickup drivers won’t be doing such extreme side-to-side maneuvering, a slalom course provides some indication of how the suspension, tires and stability control systems handle emergency maneuvers. The goal was to drive through the slalom course at 40 mph — some vehicles were more successful than others. As expected, smaller vehicles such as the Mazda CX-5 or Ford Edge negotiated the cones at higher speeds than larger entries such as the Cadillac Escalade, but ultimately the high-performance sporty offerings such as the BMW X5/X6 M really excelled.

  1. That looked like it was lots of fun. Amazing that none of the vehicles
    “drowned” in all that deep water.
