As a full-size truck, the 2008 Ford Super Duty is not required to be tested to the U.S. government's crash safety standards. Other trucks in the Ford F-Series have done well in crash tests, however, and the vehicle does provide some safety equipment--though not as many as one might want.

Safety equipment on the 2008 Ford Super Duty is adequate but not overly extensive. The Ford Super Duty is equipped with standard ABS, driver and passenger front airbags, and optional traction control. Edmunds reports that side airbags are not available on the Ford Super Duty, nor is stability control. Kelley Blue Book notes that child door locks are standard and that an engine immobilizer is optional.

Forward visibility is good from the cab of the 2008 Ford Super Duty. ConsumerGuide says there is "commanding visibility in all models," while USA Today notes the "optional towing mirrors, combining big conventional mirrors with smaller convex ones below them, were easy to adjust and gave good sight lines." Also available as an option on the Ford Super Duty 2008 is a rear camera and rear bumper sensing system, essential for avoiding obstacles out of view of the mirrors.

Conclusion

The 2008 Ford Super Duty has good visibility, but lacks crash scores—and stability control.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
