Ford F-150 Trucks Earned Top Safety Pick By IIHS

Ford's F-150 Trucks The Only One To Ace Safety Tests


Published April 12, 2016

Just three out of seven full-size trucks crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety were given an acceptable rate or better when it came to the most rigorous safety test.

And out of all of them, only the Ford F-150 was rewarded with the highest rating of "good" and given a Top Safety Pick.

“Ford is leading the way among large pickup manufacturers when it comes to protecting people in a range of crashes and offering technology to warn drivers of imminent frontal crashes,” says Raul Arbelaez, vice president of the Institute’s Vehicle Research Center.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says it tested two separate designs for each pickup, the crew cab and extended cab.

The hardest test by IIHS, the one that has repeatedly foiled car and truck makers alike, is what is known as the "small overlap crash test". In this test, a vehicle is crashed in a way that reflects hitting a pole or other narrow obstacle on one side of the front or the other.

The pickups that fared worst in that most important of tests was the Ram 1500 Crew Cab and the Ram 1500 Quad Cab. Both were given a marginal rating overall, IIHS says.
