Drivers in Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg can learn more about the Ford F-150 safety ratings and features with this comprehensive safety review from Fred Beans Ford of Mechanicsburg.

Ford F-150 Safety Ratings

Pickup trucks tend to have relatively poor safety test scores, but not the F-150. The National Highway Safety Administration gave the Ford F-150 a five-star overall score, which is the highest available, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated it "Good" overall, which is also the highest score.

These rigorous tests rate many aspects of a vehicle's safety and its ability to protect its occupants during a collision, using scenarios like side-impact collisions and rollover risk, so you're completely protected in the event of a collision.

Ford F-150 Safety Features

The 2018 F-150 comes with stability and traction control, a full set of airbags, and anti-lock brakes. Advanced safety features like Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, inflatable rear seat belts, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane-Keeping System are all available as well.

Lane-Keeping System is a feature designed to keep your vehicle in your intended lane by using sensors that monitor its position with the lane markers. It will send an alert if it senses a drift outside of your lane and if you don't correct your position, it will use the steering to gently guide you back into position. This is a helpful feature to have in general, but it becomes quite important when you have a heavy trailer in tow.

The surround-view camera is another excellent feature available for the F-150. This is a complex system of cameras that shows you everything around the vehicle, as well as the attached trailer, to ensure that there aren't any obstructions.

The Blind Spot Information System are optional as well, which use sensors outside of the vehicle to detect any other vehicles or obstructions in the blind spot. If you attempt to pass while there's a vehicle alongside you, this feature will send an audio alert until you're clear to pass. If you're trying to pass with the full weight of a long trailer behind you, this awareness of what's around you is vital to your safety.

The F-150 can also be equipped with park assist and trailer assist, which are features that scan available parking spots and guide you safely into them, while you control the accelerator and brakes.
