Active safety features with Ford's Co-Pilot360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. All trims and versions of the 2021 Ford Ranger include the following active safety system: Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. One recommended safety feature is optional on the 2021 Ford Ranger--- although it adds to the cost, one should consider the benefits of BLIS Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert.
Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but another may also improve safety. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.
