The rumors have been circulating for years, but now it’s official.
Ford announced recently that it’s bringing back the Ranger midsize pickup truck in 2019.
“We’ve heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “The Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough.”
Although it is still available internationally, U.S. production on the Ranger ended in 2011. The Ford Ranger is a nameplate previously used on three distinct model lines. The name debuted on the short-lived Edsel Ranger car. It then later referred to a model of the Ford F-Series pickup truck, which denoted a styling package, and was sold between 1965 and 1981. Ford reused the name a year later on a 1983 compact pickup truck sold in North America and, later, for parts of South America. However, a separate model of Ranger has been sold internationally since 1998.
