All-Aluminum Ford F-150 Aces Safety Tests – Leaves Rivals Trailing

One of the less talked about advantage of Ford’s switch from steel to (mostly) aluminum construction (of the passenger cell and body) apparently is safety. In recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests it scored extremely well and noticeably better than its more conventional rivals (from GM).

GM’s offerings were still awarded the same five stars as the F-150, but the group’s smaller offerings, the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, along with the Ram 1500 and Toyota’s (larger) Tundra and Tacoma all got four stars.
