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.

Yeah their initial PR was that they were looking into it. Seems like an easy fix.

Craigy 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.

I'd be really surprised if a big truck like this got anything less than a 5 star rating.
Yeah it's expected to an extent.
