Comparing apples to apples, NHTSA tested a 2017 F-250 Crew Cab 4x2 in this round. A similar 2016 model scored four stars overall: four stars in frontal testing, five in side impact, and four in rollover. The Supercab and Regular cab 2016 models did slightly worse, only receiving three stars in both frontal and rollover testing.
