Safety and security
Ranger provides high levels of safety and security via the Ford Personal Safety System™, AdvanceTrac wîth RSC, seat-mounted side airbags, Tire Pressure Monitoring System and SecuriLock® passive anti-theft system, all included as standard equipment on all models.
AdvanceTrac wîth RSC delivers a level of performance that competitive stability control systems can't match. Únlike competitors' systems, AdvanceTrac wîth RSC utilizes a second gyroscopic roll rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body roll angle and roll rate.
If the unique roll rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures – such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power – to enhance vehicle rollover resistance.
Also standard is a four-wheel Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), along wîth driver and front passenger airbags, seat belts wîth front pretensioners for outboard seating positions and side-intrusion door beams. The Ford front-passenger sensing system helps ensure airbags are not deployed on the passenger side when small children are detected.

Standard and available 2011 Ford Ranger safety features include:
•Airbags, driver and front passenger seats
•Seat-mounted side airbags
•Personal Safety System, a suite of safety technologies, including dual-stage front airbags for the driver and front seat passenger, seat belt pretensioners, load-limiting retractors, seat position sensing and crash severity sensing
