Aluminum Means Safer in the 2016 Ford F-150!

Only one pickup earned the highest award, a Top Safety Pick, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety this year. The aluminum-alloy 2016 Ford F-150 was the only one of 10 trucks tested this year able to overcome the frame-bending strain of a small-overlap collision at 40mph.

This just adds to the long list of reasons the F-150's move to aluminum was a smart idea.

Joining the F-150 as an all-star of crash protection, the 2017 Fusion earned a Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS. The plus indicates the sedan's superior collision-prevention software, which was able to automatically brake and prevent a collision at 25mph.

"The 2017 Ford Fusion is our most advanced car yet and we're proud to see it recognized by NHTSA and the IIHS for its safety performance too," said Bill Strickland, chief program engineer, Ford Motor Company. "Great new features include a pedestrian detection system and hands-free parallel and perpendicular parking capability, as well as existing optional lane-keeping assist and Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert."
