Along with a host of other great safety and technology features on the 2019 Ford Ranger, owners can now know that they are able to constantly monitor both front and rear seat belt usage using the instrument cluster.
Why this matters: Other seat belt systems only monitor front and rear passengers as the driver initially pulls away. Ranger alerts a driver when any passenger unbuckles while driving. Flagging the specific seat position enables the driver to remind occupants to buckle up again.
Notable Quotes: “We hope that making Belt Monitor a standard feature in every Ford Ranger will provide extra peace of mind for the driver.” – Paul Kula, Ford electrical systems engineer
Go on…: The all-new Ford Ranger brings other smart driver-assist technologies, advanced passenger convenience and connectivity features like standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and 4G LTE Wi-Fi with connectivity for up to 10 devices.
