Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Ford F-150 was redesigned for the 2004 model year.

Note: This pickup does NOT share the same design as the 2004 F-150 Heritage, which was produced for only one model year. The 2004 Heritage shares the design of the older 1997-2003 F-150 pickup models, which were rated Poor overall in the 40 mph frontal offset crash test.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
