2016 Ford F-150 SuperCrew and SuperCab earn IIHS Top Safety Pick

The only large pickups to get the prestigious honour By ,

Ford had just announced that the 2016 F-150 SuperCrew and SuperCab earned an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, something no other large pickup can brag about. 

Of course, you’ve heard about the use of high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy in the body, but the 2016 Ford F-150 also benefits from new structures that manage crash forces including a patented extruded aluminum roof crossmember and additional frame crossmember.

“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.”
