Ford can add this new award to the list of safety accolades the F-150 is rapidly collecting. These include the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) five-star rating for driver and passenger for all crash test modes and cab configurations.
Built with high-strength steel in the frame and military-grade aluminum alloy in the body structure, the Ford F-150 can roll with the punches. Although stronger, the F-150 body is up to 700 lbs lighter with allows it to deliver best-in-class rating for towing, payload and EPA estimated fuel economy.
Over thirty safety-related innovations have been built, tested and incorporated into the new 2016 Ford F-150. The body structure now includes innovations such as nylon hinge pillar reinforcements, specially designed wheel blockers and a patented extruded aluminum roof crossmember to help improve crash resilience and durability.
“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.”
