2019 Ford Ranger's smart seat belt technology overview
While the 2019 Ford Ranger is one of the most capable, high-tech adventure pick-up trucks available, the return of this Ford legend also brings with it one of the most thoughtful pieces of safety technology available.
If you have children, owning a vehicle with the best safety features available becomes more important than ever. Admit it, you have spent hours researching vehicles that include lots of airbags, safer tires, speed sensors and so much more. While a Ford pickup truck might not normally make your list of family-friendly vehicles, the latest safety addition to the Ford Ranger just might change your mind.
Now boasting some of the smartest seat belts in the business, the 2019 Ford Ranger now comes fully equipped with the easy to use Belt Monitor system. This innovative safety technology features a driver alert system that alerts you, the driver, if a second-row passenger becomes unbuckled.
The first rear seat belt reminder system to debut in Ford’s truck lineup, does more than just monitor front and rear passengers as the driver initially pulls away. Instead, this system alerts the driver when any passenger unbuckles while driving. By flagging the specific seat position, the driver can remind occupants to buckle up again and keep the vehicle parked until this is done.
Along with the unique seat-belt system, the 2019 Ford Ranger also offers added smart and capable family-friendly features like a rear-view camera, Lane-Keeping Assist System, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and a forward and reverse sensing system. Tack on a hard-working 4G LTE Wi-Fi system for up to 10 devices and you have a pickup truck that offers more for each of your family adventures.
For those with teenagers, you will even appreciate the Sync 3 infotainment system that is both easy to operate and includes USB ports that are easy to see and access beneath the climate controls. There is also a small bin to store your children’s all-important devices. This system also uses voice commands that respond to many natural language commands to access music, radio stations and certain navigation functions. iPhone users even have the additional option to hold the button down longer to access Siri on their plugged-in smartphone.
In order to tackle those all-important adventures, this Ford truck even includes a Trailer Tow Package that adds a four-pin/seven-pin wiring harness along with a Class IV trailer hitch. Tack this onto a towing capacity of up to 3,500 lbs and you’ll have complete peace of mind in safety and performance.
