After determining that the Ford truck is more fuel-efficient and powerful than its Chevy truck counterpart, now we can look toward the overall safety of each model. After all, what's the point of picking out a powerhouse truck that is not safe? Thankfully, both models offer a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The similarities start to wind down in this area when looking more closely at the results provided by the esteemed Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The IIHS organization provided the Ford F-150 with a "Good" rating in all five areas tested, while the Chevy Silverado only received a "Good" rating in four out of five areas and a "Marginal" rating in the small overlap front testing area.
