my 2015 lariat has been beated the sh*t out in daily basis in my workshop and it is in mint condition. B*tch is tough af though. I just fk'ed up some headlights hitting a pile of rocks. substitute them with normal hallogen ones because the led ones where more expensive and i didn't need that much light .. so it is not a surprise they hold up well in their respective crash tests. Ford you have done well. You have a faithfull costumer here.

I think the head lights are great on the F150 and I have a 2015 . Every F150 owner has no all around complaints that I talk to .If you are not fully aware of your surroundings while driving you have no business being behind the wheel of any vehicle.

I totaled my Ford F350 Super Duty Crew Cab last Xmas eve and despite crashing directly head on into a brick wall none of the airbags were activated. I'm still healing from a badly broken back and waiting for more surgery.
Sooo... since then I went ahead and ordered a brand spankin' new Ram 1500 Big Horn with the 5.7L Hemi engine. It's 8 speed transmission combines with the Hemi engine to produce outstanding pulling power for hauling a boat or trailer. The exhaust is so well engineered to let the engine breathe and sound good that there's no need for aftermarket upgrades.

By the Reports you showed for each Truck, the RAM got all GOOD and better headlights than the F150.
Looks like some confusion there? Please take another closer look!

The thing about pickup trucks and the way they test them is there heavier and crush under there own weight when crashed into a fixed structure like they use in testing in the real world your usually crashing into another vehicle,cash a pickup into one of these high rated SUVs and see what happens.the heavy trucks would do even worse.

This whole thing is pathetic. Americans...we want everything "perfect"...and our pizza in 15 minutes or its free. Life isn't risk free. The tests change [just like they said] so the trucks find it harder to score as well. Want a car/truck where you'll walk away from 99% of crash? NASCAR.

All of the crash tests for the 2019 Rams say that the "Built after July" Rams tested good. What are the differences between the trucks built after July, and the ones built before July. I purchased my 2019 Ram Bighorn in June of 2018, so this has me wondering....

The Honda Ridgeline A.K.A. "Tin-can Japan", is the worst truck you can get (so-called called a truck)!!! The transmission overheats (No manual tranny), when you go off-roading!!! As in dirt, gravel, trails etc. Basically Honda Ridgeline is, !!!ALL SHOW NO GO!!!

Not only are headlights too bright has anyone noticed traffic light and emergency vehicle lights are too bright? Even these super reflective road signs are to bright! There's no reason for it other than for some a-hole to justify his or her job! The human eye can only take so much brightness! My first vehicle had sealed beam headlights and they were okay, when I install halogen headlights they were the shit! And all you need! If you need more than that then don't drive at night!

I would like to commend TFLtrucks for airing this video on truck safety. This is atopic that has been under reported by the media. Thank you for being one of the few outlets that are addressing this topic in depth. 👍

Just an observational suggestion. Not trying to be mean just making a point. As a host you don't want to look over to your co host every sentence. It makes you look uncertain? As a host. If you present your information with confidence in yourself and the facts and address us the audience directly then it becomes a more delightful overall experience. :) I love your show and what you guys do but wanted to point this out because, personally, it was getting to me from trying to sit watch and listen to the information presented. Again love you guys, just a suggestion. ;)

You know I'm glad they are testing headlights I mean hate to give credit to Audi but they use an infrared system to detect people animals they show up as bright white glob that should become a standard for safety because at night you'll see it 10 seconds sooner on that screen before your headlights even shine on them.

I've had a LOT of people flashing their high beams at me because they think my high beams are on when they aren't. Sometimes they keep flashing at me so I finally flash my highs at them and then they realize.

On those test results. Have you ever hear about car makers staging bad vehicles for what they want for the future? I've seen many reports on this. You two said all bad on new trucks. President Trump is reopening car makers back in the USA. They as Elite want only electric vehicles. As long as they have been making vehicles and with the technology to make them all safe, your report on them not being safe is impossible. Same as computers, cellphones, laptops, etc. Back when the internet started. A new windows program would come out. They put up an up date. You had to take it. What it did was crash your old computer so it could not be fixed and you had to buy a new one. Just happened with XBOX. They trashed everyone's old ones to where even the controllers were burning up in people's hands. They have been playing this game for ever. It's not they can make an awesome product. They want the public to go into a direction. They dont ask, ect. Nothing positive. The force it. All negative. Thanks for the heads up. Sad. Nice trucks.

One of the few videos you guys make that is actually helpful. The rest nearly all end up with 4 or 5 guys choosing 4 or 5 different trucks for personal reasons rather than what is actually best.
All you really had to do was let the other wannabe truck owners know that anything but the F150 is junk. We F150 owners already know this. The rest wish it were true so they finally have something positive and true to say about their junk pile. Okay in fairness, the Nissan Titan has been the best of the wannabes for awhile and my personal second choice in trucks

HONDA ridgeline is not a truck. Car with a box. A friend bought one. Loaded a Suzuki eiger ATV in the box and headed from sudbury Ontario to thunderbay to go hunting. This truck was so shitty he stopped in wawa and traded it in. The entire rear suspension was toast from the loaded ride up highway 129. He bought a f150 and was happy after.

All of these crash tests are only an indication at best. Crash between one of these and a small hatch and the hatch loses. Yes they are not as strong as maybe they should be. But all the so called safe baby cars really are not and never let numbers fool you. And these vehicles are built to comply with crash tests, not so much real crashes

Dirka13 I was thinking the same thing. I've driven 3/4 & 1 ton PU's most of my driving life. I've only had one major accident. That was in 3/4 ton. Someone in a car decided to suddenly turn right in front me. Totaled the truck, but I walked away w/o a scratch & still a clean driving record.

Trucks are safe in collisions with smaller vehicles, but versus stationary objects or larger vehicles, more mass equals more force on impact.

Mark Otter
Mark Otter - 24 days ago
Keep in mind that these crash tests are against immovable objects, so the trucks heavier mass is working against it. While real world accidents can involve immovable objects, it's much more likely to involve another vehicle, where mass is your friend. (and unfortunately the enemy of the other vehicle) Think about dropping a watermelon and an apple from 20 ft to the ground...the watermelon would smash open, while the apple may dent...but a watermelon would still crush the apple if the two collided,

It's a 5000lb+ vehicle. Trucks and large SUV's in America really only need a driver's seat as 90% of the time it's a single person in the vehicle.
On a serious note, the whole thought seems to be that the weight will mean the truck wins in most accidents.
