2015 FORD F-150 SUPERCREW EARNS 5-STAR TOP GOVERNMENT CRASH RATINGS THANKS TO 31 NEW SAFETY-RELATED INNOVATIONS

2015 Ford F-150

  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awards 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCrew with its five-star Overall Vehicle Score in New Car Assessment Program, the highest possible rating, making it the safest F-150 ever
  • All-new F-150 safety features include an advanced restraint system with dual-stage airbags, Curve Control to help drivers stay on their intended path, and available inflatable rear safety belts in SuperCrew models – a segment-first innovation
  • 2015 F-150 – the toughest, smartest, most capable and efficient F-150 ever – includes the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any full-sized gasoline pickup on the market, plus best-in-class towing and payload ratings

2015 Ford F-150 frame and body

The all-new Ford F-150 SuperCrew has earned the government’s highest possible crash safety rating – adding to the F-150’s strengths as the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever.

Thanks to 31 new safety-related innovations developed by the Ford truck team, the 2015 F-150 SuperCrew has earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program.

“The five-star safety rating is a terrific example of One Ford collaboration and innovation,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “Our truck team worked together for years to deliver this accomplishment, using an unprecedented combination of advanced materials throughout the all-new F-150. The 2015 model is engineered to be the safest F-150 ever, which matters to customers who depend on this truck to not only get the job done, but also get them safely home.”

F-150’s improved performance is enabled by up to a 700-pound weight savings through the use of high-strength steel in the frame; high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy in the body; and smart engineering.

A cross-functional group comprised of Ford truck product development veterans and researchers worked to precisely optimize vehicle weight savings and manufacturing design to deliver improved durability, capability, fuel economy and crashworthiness. The team created and patented new structures, materials and joining methods that were tested virtually with supercomputer simulations, then retested in Ford’s advanced laboratories to engineer the safest F-150 ever.

Supercomputers for safety
The F-150 team started engineering the truck with supercomputers before the first units were ever even crash-tested in a lab.

Engineers developed digital safety models with nearly 1.4 million separate elements to examine how even the smallest parts of the truck would perform in a crash situation.

Safety starts with the frame
Safety starts with the truck’s signature, fully boxed frame – the backbone of the all-new F-150.

Engineers added an extra crossmember and increased the use of high-strength steel to improve stiffness, durability and safety – while also helping reduce the frame’s weight by up to 60 pounds.

“The team had to invent new ways to manage crash energy, because advanced materials like high-strength steel behave differently,” said Matt Niesluchowski, Ford truck safety manager. “We found that changing certain shapes led to a weight reduction, while also improving crash performance.”

Safety engineers developed a patented 12-corner front crush horn to dissipate more energy in a front impact. The uniquely shaped structure helps manage crash forces so the frame buckles predictably to keep those forces away from occupants in the cabin. This is just one of the 31 new safety-related innovations the team developed to make the truck safer in the event of a crash.

Safety improvements to the aluminum-alloy body
Ford’s advanced research and safety teams worked together to engineer F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body structure to manage what happens to the body in the event of a crash.

The truck’s cab features hydroformed roof rails that constitute a cage-like structure around the doors, extruded roof bows to provide lateral strength across the top of the cab, and extruded rocker rails near the bottom to reinforce lower body strength.

How various parts of the truck were joined also yielded safety improvements. In many cases, welding was not the most effective way to join parts, so the team developed and patented methods to connect parts using high-strength adhesives. This resulted in structural strength equal to or greater than traditional welds.

All New F-150 Frame
Additional safety features
New to F-150 is an advanced restraint system that includes an adaptive steering column that adjusts energy management depending on occupant size and safety belt usage. The system includes dual-stage airbags and side-curtain airbags.

The all-new F-150 offers the following safety features:

Safety belt pretensioners added to the belt anchor side that further tighten the lap belt around front seat occupants, keeping them in a more secure spot early in the event of a crash

Curve Control, a technology that will slow the vehicle when it senses the truck is going too fast for a particular curve

Available inflatable rear safety belts for SuperCrew – a segment-first feature

2015 Ford F-150 Inflatable Belt
Driver-assist features

The 2015 F-150 introduces all-new driver-assist and semi-autonomous technologies, including several class-exclusive features such as adaptive cruise control and active park assist.

Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support use radar in the front of the truck to measure the distance and speed of vehicles ahead. Using this information, F-150 can automatically slow to keep a consistent following distance set by the driver. Collision warning triggers visual and audio alerts if the system detects the following distance is diminishing too quickly and a collision may occur. It also pre-charges the brakes if the driver needs to stop suddenly.

Active park assist uses two ultrasonic sensors and electric power-assisted steering to help drivers parallel park. The sensors measure the gap between two vehicles to determine if there is enough room for the truck. After confirming the F-150 can fit, active park assist automatically steers the truck into the space, while the driver operates the accelerator and brake pedals.

Lane-keeping system is designed to help prevent a driver from drifting out of the intended driving lane. The system detects the left- or right-hand road lane markings using a camera mounted between the windshield and interior rearview mirror. A warning vibration in the steering wheel is used to alert the driver that the vehicle is drifting out of the lines. Semi-autonomous lane-keeping aid then can provide steering torque to help guide the vehicle back into the lane if needed.

Toughest, smartest, most capable and efficient F-150 ever
F-150’s advanced materials and weight savings lead to customer benefits regardless of model configuration or engine choice. The innovative new truck can tow up to 1,100 more pounds and haul up to 530 more pounds than the 2014 model, and it has the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any full-sized gasoline pickup on the market.

When equipped with the available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine, the all-new F-150 4×2 returns EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. Actual mileage will vary.

Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions for 2015

It seems the top 5 New Year’s resolutions to have for 2015 for those in Norfolk and Virginia Beach are still including the usual goals like losing a certain amount of weight and being able to buy a certain item within the New Year. With these goals, it’s common to see people give up and ultimately fail at achieving these types of resolutions simply because the goal is unrealistic or because their level of patience is too low. However, there are ways to achieve what you want for 2015. All you have to do is steer away from the cliché goals, and aim to start making a better habit. Listed below are what the top five New Year’s resolutions should be for 2015.

Top New Years ResolutionsWork out more

For those looking to lose a certain amount of weight during the New Year, don’t. It’s more common than anything to see people give up and fail at getting their goal weight simply because they are impatient. Losing weight isn’t something that happens at the snap of your fingers, it’s something that takes time and effort. So instead of telling yourself you will lose a certain amount of weight, tell yourself that you’re going to go to the gym more. Doing this will allow heading to the gym before or after work a habit, thus allowing you to keep returning and ultimately losing the weight.

Eat healthier

The same guidelines go for this top resolution for 2015. Those looking to lose weight can instead set a goal to eat healthier. This creates a habit of clean eating, and allows you to follow a healthier lifestyle and lose the weight you want to lose.

Saving MoneySave your money

Saving your money doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t treat yourself to a new piece of clothing or a night out. Saving your money means being smart about what you spend it on. Focus on buying what you need for 2015 instead of buying what you want. Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t spend money on something you want, it just means you should only do that once in a while. This will not only help you save money but let you know the difference between the items you need to buy and the items you want to buy. In the end, once you’ve made focusing on what you need a priority when it comes to spending, you’ll be able to use what you saved to buy something extravagant for yourself.

Be happy with yourself

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, many believe that everyone should set a goal because no one is perfect, and many people do. However, these goals are usually something minimal and are made just for the sake of making a New Year’s resolution. So for the people who tend to do this every year, try setting a resolution to be happy with yourself. This gives you a great boost of confidence and keeps you happy overall.

Have fun

With this New Year, everyone should set a goal to have fun and take time for themselves. Throughout the year, you can experience stressful events and problems that can damper how you feel about the overall year next December. So to give you a better peace of mind and keep you smiling when stress comes your way, take time to yourself or go out and have fun with your loved ones in Norfolk or Virginia Beach.

Be Happy with Yourself

The New Year is almost here, and the New Year’s resolutions are most likely already in your head. But instead of setting the norms for your goal in 2015, take a stab at trying to achieve these top five New Year’s resolutions for 2015. You’ll not only be more likely to achieve what you want, but you’re more likely to have an overall better year.

Cavalier Ford Greenbrier would like to wish you and your family a happy holiday season. If you are in the market for a new 2015 Ford model, stop by today and let our team schedule you for a test drive.
