The 2016 Ford F-150 SuperCab came out on top of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) front crash test as the only pickup truck to receive a good rating. To earn the Top Safety Pick award the IIHS requires a rating of "good" or better. The front crash test is designed to signify a dangerous crash type in which the impact on the driver's side quarter of the front bumper puts the driver at deadly risk. The Chevrolet Silverado and Toyota Tundra, both double cab models, achieved an "acceptable" rating, but only the new Ford F-150 SuperCab received a "good" rating. Of special note, after impact, all of the trucks tested had considerable damage to the driver's footwell portion of the cab, except the 2016 Ford F-150 SuperCab. Measurements of the extent of this damage showed that all but the Ford F-150 would likely result in serious lower leg and ankle injury to the driver. The Ford F-150 SuperCab was the only truck tested that achieved an overall "good" rating, while the Ram 1500 scored as merely "marginal" overall.
The IIHS performed a small overlap front crash safety test on seven full-size trucks, including the new Ford F-150 SuperCab. While three of those large trucks tested received an acceptable or higher rating, only the Ford F-150 SuperCab earned an overall rating of good. This rating sets the Ford F-150 apart from other full-size trucks. The result shows that in this type of crash which is particularly dangerous for truck drivers, the Ford F-150 is safer and likely to result in less serious injury to the driver. Vice president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Vehicle Reasearch Center, Raul Arbelaez, stated, "Ford is leading the way among large pickup manufacturers when it comes to protecting people in a range of crashes and offering technology to warn drivers of imminent frontal crashes. We commend Ford for taking last year's test results to heart and upgrading protection for SuperCab occupants in small overlap crashes." The new 2016 Ford F-150 SuperCab offers occupants better crash protection than other full-size trucks.
