The 2017 Ford F-150 Earns Top Safety Ratings

Fact: the 2017 Ford F-150 is the safest F-150 of all time. The well-publicized body of high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy caught headlines and attracted acclaim thanks to the dramatic reduction in weight and boost to capability that it afforded, but the move has also given the Ford F-150 an extra edge of protection that rival models can’t match. Adding in a rich array of cutting-edge driver-assistance technologies alongside refined control systems gets you one of the safest vehicles on the road today, whether you’re sticking to the city streets or making a longer trip from Cumberland to Hayward.

Top Safety Ratings

5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA

The Ford F-150 earned a coveted 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

IIHS Top Safety Pick

Blind-Spot Information System (BLIS) with Trailer Coverage

BLIS signals when a vehicle enters your Ford or trailer’s blind spot. Cross-traffic alert comes standard to detect those passing behind as you reverse.

360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display

Cameras at the front, back, and sides of the Ford F-150 show the entire surrounding world. Focus on individual displays or one panoramic image.

Incredible Safety Features

Take a look at rival trucks like the 2017 Ram 1500 and the 2017 Toyota Tundra to find 4-star ratings instead of the 2017 Ford F-150’s 5-Star Overall Safety Score from the NHTSA. It’s a dominance that owes much to the incredibly protective architecture of the Ford F-150’s revolutionary new body, and that reassuring sense of overall protection will be complemented by the confidence that comes with knowing sophisticated control systems are tirelessly working on your behalf.

AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Curve Control come standard across all trim levels to sharpen up steering response and maintain pitch-perfect control. Moving up the Ford F-150’s seven trim levels grants widening access to a strong selection of driver-assistance safety technologies, including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support

  • Lane-Keeping System

  • Reverse Sensing System

  • Dynamic Hitch Assist

Whether you’re transporting construction supplies from Hayward to Cumberland or taking your Ford F-150 out from Rice Lake into the backcountry, count on feeling perfectly protected during every twist and turn life can throw at you. It might be known for brazen performance, but it brings the dependability you’d expect from any other new Ford vehicle.
