1982 Ford F-150

The big news for Ford's 1982 truck line was the introduction of the Ranger compact pickup.  Despite the new truck's appeal, the 1982 Ford F-150 continued to dominate the American and international markets.

Trimlines for the F-series trucks were renamed to avoid confusion with the company's new offering; you'll find the 82 Ford F150 in the XL, XLT, and XLT Lariat trims.  Other configurations remained constant, with the variations in cab (extended cab, supercab, 2-door, 4-door), bed length (short-bed and long-bed), and a choice between styleside and flareside all available to buyers of the 1982 Ford F150.

This sturdy workhorse continued to be popular with off-road hobbyists, as well as bringing reliability and power to ranch and farm.  Tuners prize the muscle and durability of this rugged truck today; the 82 Ford F-150 is still a favorite project truck for four-wheelers and street cruisers who want the solid feeling you only get from a half-ton of Detroit steel.
