2018 Ford F-150 Safety

It's no secret that the new 2018 Ford F-150 is a great truck. With numerous best in class features and having won the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award, it's no wonder so many in the Newtown, Langhorne and Southampton areas have already made the switch to this incredible pickup.

With all its critically acclaimed capability and efficiency, it's easy to let the more exciting features overshadow what's the most important. Any vehicle needs to be safe above all else. Fortunately, the F-150 includes some of the best safety features on the market, so you can drive with peace of mind. Take a look at the various 2018 Ford F-150 safety features and discover if this truck is safe enough for you.

Built Tough

When it comes to payload and towing capacity, the F-150 is the best in its class. This is due in large part to the military grade aluminum alloy it's made from. Not only does this make the truck lighter, but it makes it stronger as well. This strength is one of the major factors contributing to passenger safety.

The aluminum and high strength steel frame forms a protective cage around the cabin of the truck and is designed to deflect kinetic energy from any collisions around the cabin rather than straight through. This means that the occupants inside won't feel the full force of the impact.

Crash Tests

A few organizations have put the high strength frame to the test such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. After their rigorous testing, the F-150 earned the highest rating in all crashworthiness tests. It even earned a superior rating in crash avoidance and mitigation systems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is another authority on crash tests, and the F-150 passed those just as well earning a perfect 5 stars overall. It only earned 4 stars in rollover rating, but you'll be hard pressed to find a pickup that doesn't earn 4 stars in that category.

Crash Mitigation

The best way to reduce the damage from an accident is to avoid it altogether. That's why the F-150 is equipped with some of the best driver assistance systems available as evidenced by its superior rating in crash avoidance from the IIHS. Arguably the most exciting system is the pre-collision assist which constantly scans the road ahead for vehicles and pedestrians. If it detects you're about to hit one, it will send you alerts and even apply brake pressure for you.

That's just one of the many features, however. The lane keeping system alerts you when you start to edge out of your lane without signaling. This alert can be audible or even vibrate your steering wheel. If you want, the system can even be set to automatically turn back into your lane.
