While a pickup’s capabilities might be your primary reason for choosing a truck, you should also consider its safety technology and ratings. Modern trucks can be equipped with advanced safety features just like other types of vehicles. And, the 2019 Ford F-150 is one of the safest pickups on the road thanks to its excellent crash test results and standard safety features.
Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released its crash test results for the F-150 and announced that it was the only truck to earn the top grade — a “Good” rating — in all crash tests. Among the 11 pickups tested, the F-150 performed the best in the passenger-side small overlap front crash test.
“F-150’s smart engineering, plus the innovative combination of its high-strength steel frame and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body continues to demonstrate enduring customer benefits – from repeated class-leading crash test performance to best-in-class towing and payload,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing.
In addition to the IIHS test results, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the F-150 a five-star overall vehicle score.
The 2019 Ford F-150 comes standard with Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, Trailer Sway Control, and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™.
