This article is about the American Ford Ranger 2019

The Ford Ranger is a range of pickup trucks manufactured and marketed by Ford in North and South America. The replacement for the Mazda-sourced Ford Courier, the Ranger was the first compact truck developed by Ford. Introduced in 1982 for the 1983 model year in North America, the Ranger was introduced by Ford of Argentina in South America for the 1998 model year.

After three generations were produced by Ford (two by Ford Argentina), the Ranger was discontinued during the 2012 model year; in South America, the global-market Ranger T6 served as its replacement. For the 2019 model year, the Ranger T6 was introduced for North America, where it has been sold as a mid-size truck for the first time. The best-selling compact truck from 1987 to 2004 in the United States, the Ranger served as a close rival to the Chevrolet S-10, its Chevrolet Colorado successor, and its GMC counterparts.

During the production of the first three generations, the Ranger was produced at Louisville Assembly (Louisville, Kentucky), Edison Assembly (Edison, New Jersey), and Twin Cities Assembly Plant (Saint Paul, Minnesota); the final 2012 Ranger marked the end of production of Twin Cities Assembly.
The current fourth-generation Ranger is manufactured by Ford at Wayne Stamping & Assembly (Wayne, Michigan). South American Rangers have been produced by Ford Argentina since 1998 in its General Pacheco facility.
