Which factors affect my Ford Ranger insurance rate?
There is a range of factors that could affect your insurance rate. These include:
- Your age, marital status, job and where you live

How can I save on my Ford Ranger premiums?
We’ve got some advice that may help you to save money on your premiums. Our advice includes:
- Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you could save.
- Make yourself a secure investment. By keeping a good credit rating and clean history of no claims, you may be rewarded by your provider with lower premiums.
- Be economical about your car usage. By walking or taking public transport, you can keep your mileage, and premiums, lower.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. Renewal quotes aren’t always the cheapest option out there. When it’s time to renew your policy, make sure you shop around - and haggle.
- Install extra safety precautions. Providers don’t like to insure risks, so by investing in some extra safety or security equipment, you may just find that your premiums get lower.
- Avoid driving convictions. Convictions of any kind raise your premium rate, so do your best to avoid any.

How safe is the Ford Ranger?
When tested by the crash-test experts at Euro NCAP in 2011, the Ford Ranger received a 5/5 safety rating and has upheld that rating. It scored 96% for its adult occupant safety and 86% for its child occupant safety. Its safety features also merited it a score of 71% for the safety assist category.
As standard, the Ford Ranger comes with an array of safety measures, designed specifically for the model. ESC, or electronic stability control, is there to keep your vehicle balanced, no matter the terrain. The trailer sway control will help prevent anything you’re towing from drifting and causing potential danger to you and the vehicles around you, whilst the roll stability control can intervene if there is a high rollover risk detected whilst you’re driving. In addition, it also has a traction control system and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
As previously mentioned, the safer you can make your vehicle, the lower your premiums may become. For optional safety extras available to the Ford Ranger, visit the Ford website or contact a Ford dealership.
