In spite of the current generation model being way long in the tooth, the Ford Ranger still boasts respectable sales figures and just celebrated the assembly of its seven millionth unit!

The folks over at recently reported that the seven millionth example of the venerable Ford Ranger compact pickup rolled off the assembly line in St. Paul, Minnesota. This little pickup that could has come a long way since it first went into production back in January of 1982 in Louisville, Kentucky. And to think, Ford just might be killing the Ranger off and replacing it with a lower-end version of the F-150 [see earlier post HERE at]. has a neat side-by-side comparison of the specs for the original in relation to those for the current model. One very noteworthy difference is that the original Ranger came standard with a 2.0-liter four cylinder boasting a whopping 73 horsepower! The present generation Ranger comes standard with 2.3-liter power plant rated at 143 horsepower, almost double that of the original Ranger's base 4-cylinder.

Stay tuned to as we monitor the Ranger as Ford decides the fate of this model in the American market.
