If you want a full-size pickup truck that’s safe for people and payloads alike, consider a used 2015 Ford F-150.
Passengers are exceptionally secure inside this vehicle, thanks to side-curtain airbags and an ABS. Everyone is further protected by electronic stability control, which is quite useful on rough terrain or during perilous weather conditions. You can also add on a Trailer Sway feature, which will take over engine speed and braking in order to keep you and your rig on course.
If you frequently use your pickup for hauling heavy loads, you know that starting the engine on a steep incline can be a dangerous task. Not anymore with Ford’s Hill Descent Assist. This feature increases traction and takes some control of the brakes, so you don’t go zooming down a slippery slope willy-nilly.
The 2014 F-150 was highly lauded by the IIHS in crash tests, receiving perfect scores for frontal, rear, and side protection. The organization even named it a Top Safety Pick. The Car Connection notes that this Ford was the only domestic full-size truck to achieve a “Good” score for the very hard to pass rollover-related roof-strength trial.
