It's the Traction Control button. The dealer was explaining it to me after I brought up the disc brakes.

The disc brakes, traction control and Roll & Stability Control are all part of government mandated safety features starting in 2010. Even though the Ranger is axed after this year, they were still required to comply with those said standards.

Yes, you are correct...Another Govt. mandate imposed upon the automakers and then that cost passed on to us at the time of purchase.
