They say there's safety in numbers. With the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab 4x2, the number five - which represents the truck's crash star rating - holds especially true. Thanks to the Blue Oval's expert engineering, the F-250 recently earned the notable rating; five stars is the government's highest score possible. The accolade reinforces the F-250's reputation within the Super Duty family as the most capable, smart and tough truck yet.

Not feeling starry-eyed about the F-250 just yet? Consider that the 2017 F-Series Super Duty stands alone as the only heavy-duty pickup truck to claim ownership of the highest safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With its sturdy design, innovative materials and top-of-the-line safety features, the 2017 model also picked up five-star overall vehicle scores in the agency's New Car Assessment Program and for frontal driver crash tests. It also maintained its five-star ratings for both the front and rear. Catch a SEMA preview of the F-250 in the video below:



Contrary to assumption, the Super Duty's superiority against potential road threats isn't due to a weight advantage. In fact, Ford improved the Super Duty's performance by enabling up to 350 pounds of weight savings, thanks to high-strength aluminum alloy that's incorporated in the box and body. The material decreases weight without sacrificing effectiveness; if anything, it improves the truck's protective capacity.  

There's no need to 'weight' - come by Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington and take a spin in the Super Duty trucks currently available.
