Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Safety Rating

There are a couple of organizations that test vehicle safety in crashes. One such organization is the IIHS. The IIHS tests crashworthiness and uses a letter grading system where G is the best and P being the worst.

The 2022 Ford F-150 extended cab pickup and the crew cab pickup were tested in roof strength. Roof strength tests help determine how well vehicles will do in rollovers. Both cab types performed exceptionally well, earning a G in terms of roof strength crashworthiness.


Driver-Assist and Safety Features

The Ford F-150 comes equipped with plenty of driver-assist and safety features. Many of these features are part of the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology suite. Some of the standard features included in this suite are:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: This system keeps an eye out for a potential frontal collision. If it senses one is imminent, it will warn you and apply the brakes if needed.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps: This system turns on the high beams automatically when it's dark enough. When your truck senses oncoming traffic, it switches to low beams and turns them back on again once they pass.
  • Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist: This camera lets you see any obstacles behind your truck. You can pull out of driveways and back out of parking spaces. With the dynamic hitch assist, you can even line up your F-150 with a trailer.
  • Hill Descent Control: This system works as a sort of cruise control as you are going downhill. It adjusts brake pressure to control slipping and keep a steady speed while you focus on steering.

Additional Safety and Convenience Features

The F-150 doesn't stop with the driver-assist Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology suite. There are other safety features and convenience features to make your drives better. The F-150 has:

  • Seatbelts for all passengers.
  • SecuriLock® Passive Anti-Theft System.
  • Airbags.

Another exciting feature the F-150 has to offer is available BlueCruise. This system builds on the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Speed Sign Recognition, and Lane Centering tech. You can drive your F-150 hands-free while being monitored by a camera to make sure your eyes are on the road.

Another helpful safety feature is the standard SOS Post-Crash Alert System™. After an accident, this system alerts other drivers on the road that an accident has happened.
