2019 Ford F-150 industry safety ratings and available driver assistance features
You’d be forgiven for viewing pickup trucks as simply bruising, menacing machines that offer little in the way of safety – for better or worse, that’s been the stigma surrounding these models for quite a while. However, the new 2019 Ford F-150 is one such truck that has always shown a willingness to defy convention, especially when it comes to keeping your peace of mind a top priority. Join Sherwood Ford today as we show you the 2019 Ford F-150 industry safety ratings and available driver assistance features – you’ll be impressed by what it has in store!
IIHS and NHTSA Safety Ratings for the 2019 Ford F-150
In North America, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a trusted voice as it relates to assessing a vehicle’s safety, both in terms of crashworthiness and included features. Models are rated on a four-point scale from “Poor” to “Good” in five key metrics, them being driver and passenger-side overlap strength, moderate overlap front, side strength, roof strength, and head restraint/seat quality. The 2019 F-150 has earned the highest possible rating for each of these areas, as well as a “Superior” front crash prevention rating!
We can’t overlook the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) either; it has awarded the F-150’s SuperCrew model in particular a 5 Star overall rating, which is the highest that the organization currently gives out!
