ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

Ford Ranger

Year Range

Oct 2011 – Apr 2014

Applies to

4x2 single cab chassis



Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Ford Ranger was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2011. This 4 star ANCAP rating applies to the two Ranger 4x2 single 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 RHD 2.2 diesel European model with 7 airbags was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that Australasian variants with dual airbags have comparable occupant protection in the frontal offset test (see below).

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.
