Results showed that the Built Ford Tough truck outperformed all 11 other trucks in its class on the passenger-side small overlap front crash test, and was the only truck to earn the top-tier good rating in every category. This is all coming off the heels of being awarded a five-star overall vehicle score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, plus a five-star rating for driver and passenger for all crash test modes.
