The Ford Ranger is a truly fascinating vehicle. It wears a badge that Ford has championed as far back in history as the 1950s. It came about out of necessity rather than desire but shot to the top of the sales chart and stayed there until 2008. When it ended production in 2012 buyers quickly felt the truth of absence causing a more fond attitude towards the small pickup. Now that it’s returned in 2019 it’s evolved into a whole new animal that requires an appreciation for a brand that can reinvent itself. Here’s a deep dive into the history of a truck that has gone from small and spartan to mid-sized and luxurious.
