Adult occupant

The passenger compartment of the Ranger remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings in the tests indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and those sat in different seating positions. For the passenger, all body regions were well protected. For the driver, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. Maximum points were scored in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body areas. In the more severe side pole test, chest protection was adequate and that of other body regions was good. The front seats and head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end impact.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet was more mixed, with good areas and some areas which gave poor protection to struck pedestrians. However, in the areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet provided almost entirely good protection and was predominantly good in the areas likely to be struck by an adult's head.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all variants of the Ranger and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is provided for the driver and front passenger seats. A speed limitation device is not available.
