Ford Ranger Safety – Smart Seatbelt Feature
New Ford Ranger owners love this nimble and capable new truck for its off-road prowess, towing capacity and abundant high-tech features. Considering the new Ranger is a “go anywhere” truck, it’s nice to know that it is also equipped with an intuitive safety feature to keep passengers safe. Ever Ranger is equipped with a smart seatbelt monitor to ensure rear seat passengers stay buckled up.
The new Ford Seatbelt Monitor alerts the driver if a second row passenger unbuckles and indicates which seat they’re in. While other seat belt systems only monitor front and rear passengers as the driver initially pulls away, Ranger alerts a driver when any passenger unbuckles while driving. By flagging the specific seat position, the driver can remind occupants to buckle up again.
Ranger’s Belt Monitor is the first rear seat belt reminder system to debut in Ford’s truck lineup. First introduced on the 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, Belt Monitor will roll out across the entire North American lineup over the next few years.
“Whether you’re on the freeway or the trail, we want to make sure everyone who puts a seat belt on keeps it on,” said Paul Kula, Ford electrical systems engineer. “We hope that making Belt Monitor a standard feature in every Ford Ranger will provide extra peace of mind for the driver.”
The all-new Ford Ranger brings other smart driver-assist technologies, advanced passenger convenience and connectivity features like standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and 4G LTE Wi-Fi with connectivity for up to 10 devices.
Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies like Lane-Keeping System and class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage are standard on Ranger XLT and Lariat trim levels. Additional driver-assist technologies including adaptive cruise control and forward and reverse sensing systems are available on XLT and Lariat trucks.
