What Is the Smallest Ford Pickup Truck?

The Ford Motor Company has been manufacturing pickups since 1925 and in that time has developed a variety of models. The smallest Ford pickup truck is the Ranger, which was first released in 1983 and is still in production today.

The Ranger is classified as a mid-size pickup truck, and it is designed to be an affordable alternative to full-size trucks like the F-150. The Ranger was originally offered with two engine options: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. Both engines are capable of producing up to 120 horsepower.

The current Ford Ranger model was introduced in 2019 and features several updates over the previous model. It is available with two engine options: a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, or a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 325 horsepower and 400 lb. of torque.

The most recent Ranger models feature several updated interior features, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, as well as an optional 12-speaker B&O Play audio system.


The smallest Ford pickup truck currently available is the Ranger, which first debuted in 1983 and has been updated for the 2019 model year with two powerful engines, updated interior features, and more advanced technology. The Ranger is an affordable alternative to full-size pickups from Ford, yet it offers plenty of power to tackle any job.
