1970 Ford F100 Ranger SWB – Ford continued to lead the charge of pickup trucks with more options and attractive features for the new decade. It would prove to be a vital evolution for the pickup truck, as the 1970s would challenge the auto industry in ways nobody could have foreseen. New concerns over vehicle emissions, vehicle safety, and by the end of the decade, fuel economy, would forever change the course of the automobile, and the cost – at least temporarily – would be horsepower. For a society accustomed to big power, finding a way to make the pickup more than just a heavy duty work machine would become a work-in-progress throughout the decade, starting with 1970.
