Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2021-24 models

Tested vehicle: 2021 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCab

The Ford F-150 was redesigned for the 2021 model year. Driver-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test of an F-150 conducted by Ford as part of frontal crash test verification.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head contacted the frontal airbag but partly slid off the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward structure. Additionally, the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the dummy’s head and torso. The side curtain airbag deployed and had sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.
