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.

Frontal Offset Crash 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 downward 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.

Side Impact Crash Test Results

Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts

Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test 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 and the Ranger scored full marks.

The vehicle was eligible for a pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this 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.
