Though we’ve made quite a big deal about the prevalence of smart driver assistance technologies over recent years, the best way for you to prevent injury and stay safe on the road is still by using your seat belt. It’s there for a reason, after all, and with advancements on the all-new Ford Ranger pickup, it’s easier than ever for you to keep tabs on your passengers to make sure they’re strapped in tight. Come and see how Smart Seat Belt Technology works inside the 2019 Ford Ranger with Sherwood Ford!
Features and Functions of Smart Seat Belt Technology
There are sensors scattered throughout your Ranger’s cabin, and they all work to provide a more intelligent and comprehensive driving experience. Smart Seat Belt Technology does what you might expect – using a feature called Belt Monitor, it will alert you if someone in the rear seats has unbuckled themselves.
This is unique to the Ford lineup on two fronts – first, you’ll see exactly which seat was unbuckled clearly on your Driver Information Display. Second, most other competitors to the Ranger only tell you if a seat belt is unbuckled in your front two seats before you pull off. The Ranger will tell you when you’re driving, adding a critical element of safety to each ride!

Belt Monitor technology is projected to become available throughout the Ford model lineup in the next couple years, but as of right now, it’s only standard on the Ranger, whose driver assistance innovations and tech advancements make it one of the best mid-size pickups in the business.
