Ford Ranger Safety Review
The Ford Ranger is the latest midsize pickup truck on the scene, and it promises to shake up the segment. Excellent payload and towing capacities help it stand out. In this Ford Ranger safety review, we want to show Ocala, Starke, and Gainesville shoppers how safe this truck can be.
From driver-assist features to passive safety features, there’s a lot to like in the Ranger. Learn more about safety and security below, courtesy of your friends at Ford of Ocala!
Ranger Safety: Ford Co-Pilot360™
For top-quality safety, the Ford Ranger offers driver assistance in the form of Ford Co-Pilot360™. With this suite of features equipped, you can conquer the roads with confidence. Extend the reach of your senses on the road with technologies like:
- Adaptive Cruise Control—will help you keep a preset distance from the vehicle ahead
- BLIS® with Trailer Coverage—will alert you if a vehicle is in your truck’s (or trailer’s) blind spot
- Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support—will alert you if a frontal collision is predicted
- Lane-Keeping System—will alert you if you start to edge out of your lane without a signal
That’s not all! This suite also includes a Rear View Camera that acts as an extra pair of eyes in the back of your head. You’ll get Auto High-Beam Headlamps, too, to shine some light on dark roads ahead.
Safer Off-Roading in the Ranger
Plan on tackling the trails in your Ford Ranger? You’ll like some of the features designed to make it safer. The truck has been engineered with a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame with six crossmembers. You’ll get steel bumpers, too, for increased durability.
Meanwhile, an A-arm independent rear suspension is engineered to give you more control over rugged terrain. With available Trail Control™, the Ranger will keep a constant, slow speed on the off-road trails, so you can focus on steering instead.
An available Terrain Management System™ makes off-roading even safer. It lets you pick from four drive modes (Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand). Optimize performance for the ground under your wheels!
Safer Driving with MyKey®
Do you have teenage drivers? You can have a little more peace of mind when they get behind the wheel of the Ford Ranger. This truck comes standard with MyKey®, a game-changer for driver safety.
This feature lets you set limits on vehicle speed and audio volume. You can mute the audio system until passengers in the front buckle their seatbelts. MyKey® also provides an earlier “low fuel” warning, so your teenage driver knows to stop for gas further in advance.
