Ford recalling 8K Ranger pickups for seat belt defect

Some 2019 Ford Ranger pickups will be recalled for a seat belt defect.

The automaker said Friday it will recall 7,580 Ranger extended-cab models for a right-front seat belt assembly issue. The recall only affects Ranger SuperCab models. Trucks that feature the faulty seat belts may not hold passengers in place properly in a crash, which may increase the risk for an injury.

Ford added it’s not aware of reports involving any injuries surrounding the new recall.
