    Ford F250 2006 safety ratings?

    I'm trying to figure out crash test ratings for our truck. It is a 2006 Ford F250 Super Duty full cab. When I search on the iihs.com website, only the F150 is listed on the model list.

    Would the F150 ratings be comparable?

    I don't think we can know whether they'd be comparable. The 2006 F250 doesn't seem to have been tested by either IIHS or NHTSA. My understanding is that the F150 is a light duty truck and the F250 is a heavy duty truck. I'm assuming that means there are differences in the chassis, which could affect test results.

    Or more accurately, I believe IIHS didn't test it and NHTSA had removed its pre-2011 test results from its website.

    It is not listed on this site that has archived scores, either. Just the F150. http://www.informedforlife.org/demos...E2010nov10.pdf
    Vehicles are listed alphabetically within each model year. If there is an earlier model year of that generation, maybe it is there, but I didn't look.

    Thanks, that is helpful. I guess the answer is, we'll never really know. At least we have size on our side.
