So when it comes to a pickup as durable and reliable as the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab 4×2, does its safety rating and safety features hold up against the competition? Let’s find out.
The short answer is… you bet they do. That’s because the F-250 Super Duty received a 5-star overall government crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

F-Series Super Duty Safety Features and Capabilities
But what makes the pickup truck so safe? Well, it has a lot to do with the intelligent Ford engineering that went into crafting the truck.
The Super Duty has a fully boxed frame that is made of 95 percent high-strength steel, a strong material that should make you feel safe. Moreover, it has a segment-exclusive high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body that keeps the truck’s weight down. What is the advantage of this when it comes to safety? Well, it helps improve local frame stiffness at key points, which ultimately means the truck’s occupants will be safer. On top of all that, the Super Duty has optional safety tech that includes a 360-degree camera system, lane-keeping alert and inflatable seatbelts.
