Take a look at some of the photos that were taken on the last day of production at the Twin Cities Assembly Plant. On December 16, 2011 the last Ford Ranger rolled off of the assembly line.
The Ranger was in production from 1983 – 2011 at the Twin Cities Assembly Plant in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Two questions – is this the first Ranger and does it still run?
Prince Charming. But where is Snow White?
Pure robotic awesomeness.
This has to be Snow White.
You should see these things in action.
I can tell that something great happened in there.

Over 300 photos taken and 150GB of video recorded on the last days of production. I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse into the Ford Ranger legacy. Take a look at the YouTube video below of the final production day!
