Used Car Safety Report

The Ford Ranger has been awarded a 5 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

Rating Result
5 Star Driver Protection Excellent
4 Star Driver Protection Good
3 Star Driver Protection Marginal
2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Ford Ranger also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

The tested model of Ford Ranger was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2011. From 2011 ANCAP requires head-protecting side airbags to be standard on the variant being assessed to achieve a 5 star rating. This 4 star ANCAP rating therefore applies to the two Ranger 4x2 Single Cab Cab-Chassis variants sold in Australia because head-protecting side airbags (curtains) are optional on those two variants. A separate rating applies to other variants with standard side curtains.

The Ranger scored 15.72 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver.

ANCAP awarded dual airbag variants a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. Because head-protecting side airbags are not standard for these variants the rating is 4 stars and the overall score is truncated to 32.49 (the maximum available for a 4-star rating).

Important note: The RHD 2.2 diesel European model with 7 airbags was tested by Euro NCAP. NCAP was provided with technical information which showed that Australasian variants with dual airbags have comparable occupant protection in the frontal offset test (see below).


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard on all variants. Head-protecting side curtains are available for all variants. Side thorax airbags are also available, except for single cabs with three front seats (bench seats). Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats of most variants. However single cab variants with three front seats only have a driver seat belt reminder.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 15.72 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 3.72 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 4 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 58mm and upwards 7mm. The steering wheel hub moved 40mm forward, 2mm forward and 7mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 2mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP had a driver knee airbag that is not available for Australasian models. However Ford provided technical information to ANCAP which demonstrated that the Australasian models have comparable upper leg protection to the European model. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Ranger. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

Pedestrian Summary

The European model earned the highest pedestrain protection score of any vehicle. However the Australasian model has a different bumper to Europe. ANCAP decided to apply a default lower leg score of zero since additional tests are unlikely to improve the rating to the “good” rating achieved in Europe.

The tested model of Ford Ranger was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in 2011. This 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants built from May 2014. Separate ANCAP safety ratings are available for variants built prior to this date.

In the frontal offset crash test, driver chest protection was acceptable. Driver protection was good in the side impact test. Head protection in the side pole test was good.

Note: The RHD 2.2 diesel European model Ford Ranger was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the Euro NCAP results apply to all Australasian variants.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, head-protecting side curtains, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard on all 5 star variants. Side thorax airbags are also standard except for single cabs with three front seats (bench seats).

Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats of most variants however single cab variants with three front seats only have a driver seat belt reminder. The lack of side thorax airbags and a passenger seat belt reminder do not affect the 5 star safety rating for these variants but their overall score reduces to 34.72.

The tested model of Ford Ranger was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2011. This ANCAP 5-star rating applies to all Ranger Double Cabs, all Ranger Super Cabs, all Ranger Hi-Rider Single Cabs and all Ranger Single Cab Pick-ups sold in Australia, and all Ranger variants sold in New Zealand. From 2011 ANCAP requires head-protecting side airbags to be standard on the variant being assessed to achieve a 5 star rating. This 5 star ANCAP rating is therefore not applicable to the two Ranger 4x2 Single Cab Cab-Chassis variants sold in Australia because head-protecting side airbags (curtains) are optional on those two variants. A separate 4-star rating applies to those variants.

The Ranger scored 15.72 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test.

Important note: The RHD 2.2 diesel European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that all Australasian variants (all bodystyles, engines, 4x4 and 4x2) have comparable occupant protection when fitted with side curtain airbags.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, head-protecting side curtains, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard on all the 5-star rated variants. Side thorax airbags are also standard except for single cabs with three front seats (bench seats). These variants, with 4 airbags, retain a 5-star rating. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats of most variants. However single cab variants with three front seats only have a driver seat belt reminder. The overall score for these reduces to 34.72 but they retain a 5-star rating.
