Usually located at the front and rear of the vehicle, the Chrysler bumper is either made from heavy sheet metal that is molded to project style and attitude. Modern bumpers are made from plastics that are molded like the sheet metal but possess the same characteristics as the sheet metal. But its main difference is its flexibility to mold in any form desired unlike the sheet metal that can be formed in limited shapes. Plastic bumpers are as tough as the sheet metal bumpers and could stand weathering almost as long as the sheet metal.
Whether Chrysler bumper is made from sheet metal of plastic, it has the feature to protect the passengers by allowing the delay impact thus reducing the amount of impact pressure when it reaches the passengers. This is called the crumple zone. Starting from the bumper, the impact that brings a great amount of pressure to the whole vehicle is delayed with the accordion like absorption of the vehicle. This allows the impact to reduce its power as it delays the time for the vehicle to make a complete stop that is caused by the impact.
With this quality Chrysler bumpers, the passengers are assured of good looking and safe Chrysler vehicle.
