Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
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.
Restraints/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.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.
- Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint, as indicated by smeared greasepaint.
- Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and forces on the legs and feet were low.
- Antilock brakes
