Where Can You Buy a Safer New Ford F-150 in Salem?

Salem-area pickup drivers are hard workers, looking for a tough truck with enough power to finish any job... but they are also smart workers. They understand that safety always comes first.

That's why the best place to find a new light-duty truck is here at Skyline Ford.

The 2016 Ford F-150 was the only truck tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to earn a Top Safety Pick. In the devastating small-overlap crash test, the Ford was the only model to provide good protection, especially against injuries to the lower legs and feet.

If you were behind the wheel of another model, like the Chevy Silverado, or the Ram 1500...

"Drivers in these pickups would need help freeing their legs from the wreckage following a small-overlap crash," said Raul Arbelaez, vice president of the Institute's Vehicle Research Center. And that is only in a 40mph collision. We don't want to think about what would happen on the highway.

Arbelaez goes on to say, "We encourage manufacturers to redesign their pickups to resist intrusion in the lower occupant compartment to safeguard people from serious leg and foot injuries that might require months of rehabilitation."

Fortunately, Ford already redesigned the 2016 F-150, based on the results of last year's IIHS testing. So if you are looking for a safer pickup truck, search no further than our new inventory.
