Brawn meets Brains
Contemporary, cutting-edge design
Technology with a purpose
Forward Alert, always looking ahead
This system can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front and may help avoid an accident.Tooltip Radar in the front of the Ranger detects slower vehicles traveling in the same direction, and provides a visual and audible warning if they’re rapidly approaching. If you don’t react and continue to get closer to the other vehicle, Ranger will pre-charge and increase brake assist sensitivity, so even if the brakes are pressed lightly, they’ll automatically apply a harder force to stop you quickly.
Cruise control that can adapt automatically
With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your vehicle to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
Helping you see, without dazzling others
A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead, stopping you dazzling other drivers. It then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine. When you’re ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Available in vehicles with an automatic transmission, Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10%.
Manual or automatic transmission
There are two different transmissions. A 6-speed manual gearbox that delivers accurate gear-changes and a smooth 6-speed automatic with carefully tuned shifting points.
Even more choice
Individual needs vary. So for the first time on Ranger you now have a choice of axle ratios for the 4×4 manual 160PS Duratorq TDCi 2.2L engine. This allows you to prioritise between fuel economy (optional ratio) and towing capability (standard ratio).
Go hands-free with SYNC 3
SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
Easier, safer reversing
Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Stay in control whatever the conditions
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
Continuous protection against rolling over
Ford’s unique roll-rate sensor helps the Roll Stability Control system to keep the tyres grounded, specifically under conditions where there’s a high centre of gravity and when driving through off-camber turns.
Coordinated safety systems activate in a split-second
As well as an ultra rigid safety cell and full complement of standard airbags, Ranger’s Intelligent Protection System (IPS) also includes seat belt pre-tensioners and a collapsible steering column and pedals to reduce the chance of injury in the event of an accident.
