The 2016 F-150 SuperCrew and SuperCab earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick

The F-150 is the only large pickup truck to earn the IIHS safety recognition.  The pickup had an excellent crash test performance, including the highest possible rating in the small overlap front crash test. This class-leading performance is made possible by the F-150’s engineering. The F-150 is built with a high-strength steel frame and a military-grade aluminum alloy body.

In addition to the IIHS Top Safety Pick, the F-150 earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in all crash test modes and cab configurations. It is the only full-size, light-duty truck to receive this rating.

“From the moment our team set out to design and build the new F-150, we knew it had to be best-in-class,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, Global Product Development, and chief technical officer. “This Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick is another example of Ford’s commitment to building the toughest, smartest, most capable and safest F-150 ever.”

IIHS Top Safety Pick Ratings

IIHS tests evaluate two aspects of safety: crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash — and crash avoidance and mitigation — technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity.

To determine crashworthiness, IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal or poor, based on performance in five tests: moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. In the area of crash avoidance and mitigation, IIHS assigns vehicles with available front crash prevention systems ratings of basic, advanced or superior, based on the type of system and performance in track tests.
