Ford F-150 Performs Best in Crash Test
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently tested the safety of extended-cab and crew-cab versions of full-size pickup trucks, and the surprising result is that the Ford F-150 was the only one out of 7 that earned a "good" rating.The Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra, Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra all earned "marginal" or "acceptable" ratings.
