With all the talk going around about the toughness of the all-new Ford F-150, not to mention its innovative technology and impressive power, it would be easy to forget about some of the more basic elements that make the Ford truck great.  And it’s hard to get more basic, or more important, than safety.  After all, what good is the smartest, most capable truck on the market if you’re worried about how you will fare if the unexpected happens?  Luckily, you won’t have to worry in the 2015 Ford F-150 – its safety credentials have recently been impressively established!

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the government crash test ratings for all vehicles on the market, and the 2015 Ford F-150 has earned the highest crash safety rating possible.  The five star crash test rating – for all cab configurations, and for driver and passengers in all crash test modes – makes this newly revamped model the only full-size light-duty truck to receive top marks in the government crash tests.

Ford engineers worked hard to make sure that in addition to the improvements in capabilities and technology, the 2015 Ford F-150 also showed improvements in safety.  The engineers created 31 safety innovations such as new materials and joining methods, as well as new structure, and painstakingly tested them all in both virtual supercomputer simulations and in Ford labs.  The end result is a truck that takes safety seriously, and is the best it can be from the basics all the way to the most advanced technology.  So if you’re ready for a tough, powerful, and safe truck, what are you waiting for?  We’re waiting for you at your local Ford dealership with the 2015 Ford F-150.  Shelbyville and other Kentucky drivers can find the truck of their dreams at O’Brien Ford today!
