Ford F-150 Supercab And Supercrew Receive Government Rating for Frontal
The Dearborn, Mich.-based
Ford Motor Co. has announced that the 2004 Ford F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew
have each earned the top safety score in the federal government's frontal
impact crash test-five stars for the driver and five stars for the front-seat
In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) test, officially
known as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), vehicles are rated on
the protection provided to properly seat belt restrained occupants in
a frontal collision. Five stars indicate the best crash protection. More
occupant fatalities and injuries occur in frontal crashes than any other
type of crash.
"The five-star ratings confirm our own analysis of the safety performance
of this excellent vehicle," said Jim Vondale, director, Automotive
Safety Office. "The F-150 has a strong record for real-world safety."
