The Ford Ranger is a nameplate that has been present on a range of different model lines sold by the company. In 1958, the name was originated with the Edsel Ranger, the base trim level of the Edsel model range. During the years of 1965-1981, Ranger represented various trim packages of the Ford F-Series and Bronco and was the mid to top level trim. During the 1983 model year, the nameplate was added to a new compact pickup truck. It replaced the 1972-1982 Ford Courier in North America. The vehicle was discontinued in 2011 for a period of time before being picked up again in the United States in 2018. During the 1983 model year, the Ranger was the first compact pickup designed by the company. It used the same chassis design as the Courier it replaced, and three generations were produced during the 29 years of production. The final vehicle came off the assembly in 2011. In 2018, the Ranger returned to the market for the 2019 model year. The Ranger is the same vehicle as the global Ranger T6 slightly adapted to fit American government regulations.
