A new engine design combined with more power gives the All-New Ranger an unbeaten water wading of 800mm. So you can go places other vehicles can't.
A steep riverbank entry put the higher positioning of Ranger's key engine components to the test before it even got to the deepest part of the river

Ford Ranger im Test: Offroad ein echter Kerl
Endlich -- werden sich die deutschen Ranger-Fans denken -- ist es vorbei
mit der biederen Optik des Pick-ups von Ford. Beim neuen Ranger sieht man
nun die Verwandtschaft zu den größeren "F"-Modellen, die in den USA die
meistverkaufte Pick-up-Baureihe darstellt. Unser Testfahrer Christian Jehle
hat den neuen Konkurrenten von Amarok und Co im Offroad-Park Langenaltheim
auf Herz und Nieren getestet.

2012 Ford Ranger T6 EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)
The passenger compartment of the Ranger remained stable in the frontal
impact. Dummy readings in the tests indicated good protection of the knees
and femurs of both the driver and front passenger. Ford showed that a
similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different
sizes and those sat in different seating positions. For the passenger, all
body regions were well protected. For the driver, protection of the chest
was adequate and that of other body regions was good. Maximum points were
scored in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body areas. In
the more severe side pole test, chest protection was adequate and that of
other body regions was good. The front seats and head restraints provided
marginal protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end impact.
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint,
was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were properly contained
in the protective shells of their restraints, minimsing the risk of
dangerous head contacts. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a
rearward facing restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear
information is provided regarding the status of the airbag and the system
The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of
the bonnet was more mixed, with good areas and some areas which gave poor
protection to struck pedestrians. However, in the areas likely to be struck
by a child's head, the bonnet provided almost entirely good protection and
was predominantly good in the areas likely to be struck by an adult's head.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all variants of the
Ranger and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is
provided for the driver and front passenger seats. A speed limitation
device is not available.
