For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Ford Ranger has a score of 78, implying a 0.045% chance of driver death (4% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Ford Ranger has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0447% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.1076%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0447% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.1076% chance of being injured.

Ford's Co-Pilot360 active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. All trims and versions of the 2022 Ford Ranger include the following active safety system: Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Ford Ranger--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Keeping System and BLIS Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. 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.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
