When you hear about the safety of vehicles, the conversation usually comes up in the context of family vehicles like sedans and minivans. But safety is important in every model, and for every driver and passenger. Here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville, we want all our customers to be safe when they drive away in their new car. Luckily for us, Ford takes safety seriously as well – so seriously, in fact, that the 2016 Ford F-150 recently became the only vehicle in its category to earn a 2016 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS.)

The latest Ford F-150 is already known for being tougher, smarter, and more capable than any previous version of the Ford truck. Frankfort and Louisville,KY drivers can now have the peace of mind of knowing that it’s also the safest Ford F-150 yet, and one of the safest trucks on the market. The IIHS Top safety Pick rating doesn’t come easily. The 2016 Ford F-150 was subjected to a series of tough tests, including crash tests, but earned five-star ratings – the highest ratings possible – for driver and passenger in every crash test mode and for every cab configuration, leading to a five-star overall vehicle score. These excellent results were no accident. The 2016 Ford F-150 features a frame made with high-strength steel, includes a military-grade high-strength aluminum alloy in the body, and cutting edge Ford engineering throughout.
