2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty Earns Highest Government Safety Rating

February 8th, 2017

The 2017 Ford Super Duty is the only heavy-duty truck to achieve an overall NHTSA rating of five starsBorgman Ford has some exciting news for Super Duty fans in Grand Rapids and across West Michigan: The 2017 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 4×2 has been awarded a five-star overall vehicle score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This is the highest possible score that can be given through the New Car Assessment Program, and the Super Duty is the only heavy-duty pickup truck to have achieved this amazing feat.

It wasn’t by accident either. The 2017 Ford Super Duty owes its score to the fully boxed 95% high-strength steel frame, and its segment-exclusive military-grade, aluminum-alloy body. In past years, its side crash ratings for both the front and rear of the vehicle have maintained a sterling five-star rating. This year, the frontal driver rating achieved the same, making the 2017 Ford Super Duty the safest one built to date. Read the rest of this entry »
