  • Ford 335 engine


    The Ford 335 engine family was a group of engines built by the Ford Motor Company between 1969 and 1982. The "335" designation reflected Ford management's decision to produce an engine of that size (335 cubic inches) with room for expansion during its development. This engine family began production in late 1969 with a 351 cu in (5.8 L) engine, commonly called the 351C. It later expanded to include a 400 cu in (6.6 L) engine which used a taller version of the engine block, commonly referred to as a tall deck engine block, a 351 cu in (5.8 L) tall deck variant, called the 351M, and a 302 cu in (4.9 L) engine which was exclusive to Australia. The 351C, introduced in 1969 for the 1970 model year, is commonly referred to as the 351 Cleveland after the Brook Park, Ohio, Cleveland Engine plant in which most of these engines were manufactured. This plant complex included a gray iron foundry (casting plant), a stamping plant, and an engine assembly plant. As newer automobile engines began incorporating aluminum blocks, Ford closed the casting plant in May 2012. The 335 series engines were used in mid- and full-sized cars and light trucks, (351M/400 only) at times concurrently with the Windsor small-block family, the 351 Windsor, in cars. These engines were also used as a replacement for the FE V8 family in both the car and truck lines. The 335 series only outlived the FE series by a half-decade, being replaced by the more compact Windsor V8s.

  • Ford Ranger (Americas)


    The Ford Ranger is a range of pickup trucks manufactured and marketed by Ford in North and South America. The replacement for the Mazda-sourced Ford Courier, the Ranger was the first compact truck developed by Ford. Introduced in 1982 for the 1983 model year in North America, the Ranger was introduced by Ford of Argentina in South America for the 1998 model year. After three generations were produced by Ford (two by Ford Argentina), the Ranger was discontinued during the 2012 model year; in South America, the global-market Ranger T6 served as its replacement. For the 2019 model year, the Ranger T6 was introduced for North America, where it has been sold as a mid-size truck for the first time. The best-selling compact truck from 1987 to 2004 in the United States, the Ranger served as a close rival to the Chevrolet S-10, its Chevrolet Colorado successor, and its GMC counterparts. During the production of the first three generations, the Ranger was produced at Louisville Assembly (Louisville, Kentucky), Edison Assembly (Edison, New Jersey), and Twin Cities Assembly Plant (Saint Paul, Minnesota); the final 2012 Ranger marked the end of production of Twin Cities Assembly.
