2009 Ford F-150 gets 5-star crash-rating from the IIHS

After raking up the 2009 Motor Trend Truck of the Year of award, the 2009 Ford F-150 today reestablished its leadership in the pickup segment after the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded it 5-stars in crash-test ratings.

Ford says that the 2009 Ford F-150 features more standard safety features than any other half-ton truck. Standard safety features include Safety Canopy side curtain air bags, AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and a patented “K-bag” seat-mounted air bag.

The 2009 Ford F-150 recently earned 5-star frontal and 5-star side impact crash-test ratings – the highest possible score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Ford said that it has more U.S. government 5-star safety-rated vehicles than any other brand and more IIHS “Top Safety Picks” than any other automaker. Just another reason to go Drive One.
