When it came to redesigning the Ford F-150, the designers and engineers not only crafted the next generation of the ever-popular pickup, but they also built a truck that continues to keep its passengers safe. The 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCrew earned a five-star rating for Overall Vehicle Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In addition to using aluminum to construct much of the truck’s body and shedding 700 pounds off the weight of the previous model, the F-150 SuperCrew incorporates 31 new innovations for improved safety. No wonder the pickup passed safety tests with flying colors to earn the highest safety rating the government gives.
“The five-star safety rating is a terrific example of One Ford collaboration and innovation,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development. He further states:
“Our truck team worked together for years to deliver this accomplishment, using an unprecedented combination of advanced materials throughout the all-new F-150. The 2015 model is engineered to be the safest F-150 ever, which matters to customers who depend on this truck to not only get the job done, but also get them safely home.”
