Aluminum F150

A friend of a friend hit a slick spot on I45 yesterday and flipped his 2015 Aluminum body F150 end over end. All 4 of them walked away from the accident. He said that the cab superstructure didn't crush at all and it looked like the truck could be rolled onto its wheels and driven away.

Quite a testament to vehicle integrity. One of my biggest concerns with the current SuperDuty is the strength of the cab roof in a rollover. All that I've seen have been "crushed to the seats". Here's hoping the 2017 SuperDuty will have the same "crush resistance" that this F150 had.

Wow, that had to be scary. Glad they all walked away.

Glad everyone was OK.

The IIHS rates the 2015 aluminum F150 better than others:
