|Jackson||The aluminum doesn't seem to be less safe, just more expensive. I'm thinking that will change if Ford rolls out the aluminum to more models because of economies of scale.|

|siezn||That has me wondering what they make off of the supercrews, might have something to do with this, some motivations here tied to what they did maybe.|

Only supercrew earns IIHS Top Safety Pick.
Supercrew has more structural parts that help out in the small overlap test, whereas extended cab does not.
Pretty interesting... wonder if Ford was cheaping out on the extended cab models or there was some other technical reason for not beefing up both trucks.

|Jackson||It seems to hold up in crash tests. What specifically are you worried about?|

|siezn||I'm starting to fear aluminum with all the concerns that have been brought forward about its downsides.|

|Jackson||Did they use the aluminum for the body of this truck though. Because that would have been one thing to watch for. If that aluminum holds up in a crash, which obviously it did.|

Not surprised. Big trucks should get perfect scores on these crash tests. As usual this truck got 4 stars on the roll over, but I think that's the top rating that it can get.
I'd be really surprised if a big truck like this got anything less than a 5 star rating.
