Ford’s Aluminum F-150 Gets 5-Star Crash Test Rating

The first of Ford’s aluminum-bodied F-150 pickups crash test results are out. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) handed the 2015 F-150 Supercrew edition a five-star safety rating, the highest possible level.

For the frontal barrier crash rating, NHTSA gave the vehicle five stars for both men and women. In the test, the man was the driver and the female was the passenger.

NHSTA also gave the vehicle five stars for the side barrier rating based on the results from a front-seat male and backseat female passenger.

For the rollover rating, the F-150 received four out of five possible stars. NHTSA gives the model a 19.1 percent chance of rollover.

The remaining 2015 F-150 models have not yet been rated by NHTSA.
