Yesterday, we revealed the 2010 Ford Ranger, now with AdvanceTrac. A minor upgrade. As we see in our year-by-year gallery of second-gen Ranger exterior design evolution, that's the only type of upgrade it's ever received.

We really like the Ranger, even now with its 13 year styling run, but it's getting on in years, and it's living on a platform with design roots from about the same time as the 3.5" floppy disc was just coming into vogue. We're not advocating it should go upmarket, or bigger or get a more luxurious interior, but we'd love it if Ford brought it into the new millennium. Given the current state of the auto industry, the request will more than likely fall on deaf ears. To make the point we've assembled an array of of all the different Rangers since it's last major refresh in 1993. See if you can tell them apart.

Oh and, yes, we know the 2008 model year Ranger press image is the same as the one for 2010. But someone really needs to tell Ford.
