The second-generation Ford Ranger arrived in 1992 as a 1993 model.
At launch, a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine served as the base engine with 100 horsepower and 133 pound-feet of torque.
Customers looking for more power could upgrade to a 3.0-liter V6 that produced 145 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque.
The top-of-the-line engine in 1993 was a 4.0-liter V6 with 160 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of twist.
An update in 1998 brought a longer wheelbase and 3-inch longer cab for regular cab models.
Additional upgrades for 1998 included an improved front suspension and front boxed frame.
A special Splash model was introduced for the second-generation Ranger with a flare side bed, special chrome wheels and a 2-inch lower suspension.
In addition to the flare side bed, special "Splash" decals were affixed to sides and tailgate.
A 2.5-liter engine with 117 horsepower and 149 pound-feet of torque replaced the 2.3-liter engine as the base power option.
In 2002, a 2.3-liter with 135 horsepower and 153 pound-feet of torque would return to replace the 2.5-liter engine.
