2011 Ford F-150 Named IIHS Top Safety Pick

A new session of crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) concluded that Ford’s 2011 F-150 SuperCrew is worthy to receive the Top Safety Pick rating. This brings the number of Ford vehicles on the road in the U.S. that have earned Top Safety Picks to 11.

The 2011 Ford F-150 SuperCrew has received a rating of “good” in offset frontal-, side- and rear-impact tests and the new roof strength evaluation, while offering electronic stability control.

“Safety ratings are important markers customers can use to evaluate vehicles, so we are proud Ford has the most top U.S. safety ratings of any automaker ever,” said Sue Cischke, Ford group vice president of Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. “The F-150’s innovative safety technologies and this new Top Safety Pick award further demonstrate Ford’s commitment to safety.”

The F-150’s standard safety features include an advanced safety structure with high-strength steel and six standard airbags. Other standard Ford F-150 safety features include dual-stage airbags for driver and front passenger, Safety Canopy side curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control), four-wheel ABS brakes, SOS Post Crash Alert System, MyKey, and trailer sway control.
