The Ranger is a compact pickup truck manufactured by the Ford Motor Company first released in 1982. As of 2010, the truck is still being produced and remains a popular vehicle among contractors for its load-bearing ability. In 2002, the Ford Ranger was given a makeover and was modified to attract a new audience. The body was slightly changed, and its performance capabilities were enhanced to make it more of an off-road friendly truck. The 2002 Ford Ranger was available in four different models--Edge, Tremor, XL and XLT.
