The Ford Ranger is a vehicle that will make you stop and wonder why you ever thought of buying one.
It has a name like that because the Ford name is based on the Ranger pickup truck.
But Ford didn’t just use that name for the truck; they added the Ranger logo to the front of the truck.
It’s actually the only truck in Ford’s lineup that bears the Ranger name.
Ford was one of the first car companies to make an iconic pickup truck name.
In 1978, the company launched the Ranger and it was soon followed by the F-150, F-250, and F-350.
The Ranger is so ubiquitous that you’ll find a Ford Ranger on your driveway, on your local billboard, and even on the cover of this magazine.
