Ford began production of the model year 1983 Ranger on January 18, 1982 at the Louisville Assembly Plant, hitting showrooms in March. Available engines were the 72 hp 2.0 L and 82 hp 2.3 L OHC four-cylinders, a four-cylinder 59 hp 2.2 L Mazda/Perkins diesel, and a 115 hp 2.8 L Cologne V6. In 1985, a Mitsubishi-built 2.3 L turbo-diesel with 86 hp replaced the Mazda diesel engine, and in 1986, the 2.8-liter engine was replaced with a 140 hp 2.9 L Cologne V6. The SuperCab was introduced in 1986, offering an extra 17 inches of storage space behind the front seats, with a pair of jump seats available as an option. Also in 1986, the gauge cluster was modified to allow fitment of a factory tachometer. A lot of the parts of the interior such as the steering wheel, door handles, and the window cranks were similar to those in other Ford vehicles like the Bronco, Escort, and the F-Series.
