2019 Ford Ranger Misses Out on IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

By Team Writer / August 15, 2019

One of the metrics that Americans tend to focus on when purchasing a car is the manufacturer and brand safety rating. In his new blog post, Stefan Ogbac summarizes the recently released highway safety annual vehicle ratings and explains why the 2019 Ford Ranger failed to pick up the achievement and what categories recorded a miss. He also describes a few attributes of the truck and makes it a point to outline which truck in the category reaches the required safety levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although the 2019, Ford Ranger was recently evaluated by the IIHS, It was only tested in the vehicle’s crew can configuration.
  • Because the Ranger received an “Acceptable” rating on one sub-test and not “Good” across the board, it missed its chance at the top safety pick.
  • The passenger side small overlap test proved to be the Ranger’s Waterloo, causing the 2019 model to lose out on top safety pick.

“The 2019 Ford Ranger has finally been evaluated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and it narrowly missed getting the organization’s top rankings.”
