2004 Ford F-150 Supercab And Supercrew Receive Government Rating for Frontal Crash

The Dearborn, Mich.-based Ford Motor Co. has announced that the 2004 Ford F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew have each earned the top safety score in the federal government's frontal impact crash test-five stars for the driver and five stars for the front-seat passenger.

In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) test, officially known as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), vehicles are rated on the protection provided to properly seat belt restrained occupants in a frontal collision. Five stars indicate the best crash protection. More occupant fatalities and injuries occur in frontal crashes than any other type of crash.

"The five-star ratings confirm our own analysis of the safety performance of this excellent vehicle," said Jim Vondale, director, Automotive Safety Office. "The F-150 has a strong record for real-world safety."
