Just a short while later in 1965, the very first Ford Ranger model made its way into the spotlight. However, it wasn’t branded at the time as it is today, as it was simply a trim offered by Ford on their current F-Series model of trucks. Ultimately, the name “Ranger” would become its entirely own type of truck and become one of the most popular trucks Ford offered for many, many years.
For anyone who is an avid Ford truck lover, you’ve probably watched over the years as the Ford F-Series trucks took on many different new stylings, trims, and sometimes a complete overhaul.
Between two decades (the 70’s and 80’s), Ford launched four more different generations of Ford F-Series trucks. Always improving, tweaking, and sometimes redesigning based off consumer feedback. Ford was determined to keep the F-Series known as one of North America’s most beloved trucks of all time. Therefore, they never stopped improving off the previous year’s models.
On the 75th anniversary of Ford truck production, Ford launched the Ford SVT Lightning, which was a powerhouse with 240 horsepower, and a 5.8 L V8 engine. Their intent? To fiercely compete with the newly launched Chevy 454SS. And in true Ford truck fashion, it did well.
With a truck producer like Ford, you can find almost any truck for any purpose. This is why we love buying trucks for the MOST cash in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and Vancouver Island. In fact, our name may be Cash For Cars BC, but we are also the Lower Mainland’s #1 truck buyers too!
The Ford F-Series Redesign in 10th Generation Trucks
In 1997, Ford would introduce a whole new line of trucks, however they still would bear the F-Series namesake.
