Ford has secured a five-star ANCAP safety rating for the new Ranger and Everest models.

Ford’s Ranger Utility and Everest SUV scored highly across all ANCAP’s areas of assessment.

The Ranger achieved 84% in adult occupant protection, 93% in child occupant protection, 74% in vulnerable road user protection and safety 83% assist. The Everest scored 86% in adult occupant protection, 93% in child occupant protection, 74% in vulnerable road user protection and 86% in safety assist.

“This is good news for fleets, families and tradies, as well as recreational consumers – everyone who uses these models for work and play,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.

“A five-star safety rating isn’t an easy achievement, yet it is particularly important when considering the very broad range of uses for the Ranger and Everest.”

Rangers are fitted with autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist), a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS).

Everest models come complete with autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User, Junction Assist and AEB Backover), a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS).

The five-star ANCAP safety rating applies to all Everest variants, and all XL, XLS, XLT, Sport and Wildtrak variants of the Ranger in single cab, extended cab and double cab body styles. Raptor variants of the Ford Ranger are unrated.
