1983 Ranger XLT
The new Ranger mimicked the F-Series’ chiseled lines. It looked larger than it was and, for a while, the term “Midi-Truck” was bandied about. (Midi is better than mini, right?) This early ’83 XLT 4x4 is one of the early four-cylinder-only rigs delivered before the V-6s became available. Once it debuted, the 2.8L V-6 dominated production.
