Used Ford Ranger Information
The Ranger nameplate was initially used on their F-Series range of full-size pickup trucks produced from 1965, but since 1983 The Ranger has been a standalone compact pickup from the company.
For the second generation, released in 1993, Ford did not alter the look of the Ranger too drastically, although it was streamlined to make it a little less boxy. It was offered with a standard or extended cab as well as a more fashionable shape called Splash. The Ranger also had very clear choices between engines: a 2.3L four-cylinder as standard or a top-of-the-range model with a 4.0L V6. For those needing increased pulling power but perhaps not the most powerful engine, a 3.0L V6 was there as a compromise.
Throughout the years that the second-gen model ran â up until 2000 â Ford made a handful of additions. For models from 1995 onward, antilock brakes came as standard, while the V6 engines went from four- to five-speed in 1997.
The third generation of the Ranger ran from 2001-2011 and is widely available on the used market. There have been four standard model options in that time; the more standard XL and XLT, a Sport model and the powerful FX4 designed for off-road use, with Edge, STX and Tremor also being added to the range.
It was a successful and reliable compact pickup, known for impressive handling both on and off road, but as the vehicle wasnât as heavily modernized as others from the same time it may appear more outdated.
