By -


Ford put to rest any questions about the safety of aluminum when they National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the 2015 F-150 an overall 5 Star safety rating on the new truck. Following up with that big win for the truck, the new 2015 Ford Edge also scored an overall 5 Star rating.

While overall crash safety might not be your number one concern when purchasing a new vehicle, it is probably high up on your list. Here’s how some of the Edge’s competition scored.
