Another refresh came in 1967 along with a familiar name: the upscale '''Ranger''' trim line in addition to the '''base''' and '''Custom Cab''' trim levels. In 1968, federal regulations required all automotive manufacturers to add side marker reflectors or lights, so Ford redesigned the hood emblems to incorporate reflectors.<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20060520005819/http://www.fordification.com/images/67Ford_hood-emblem.jpg 1967 Ford F-100 hood insignia]{{dead link|date=October 2010}}</ref><ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20060520010053/http://www.fordification.com/images/68-72Ford_hood-emblem.jpg 1968-62 Ford F-100 hood insignia]{{dead link|date=October 2010}}</ref> The same year the trucks received larger versions of Ford's FE engine family with the introduction of the 360 and 390 [[cubic inch]] engines. Also changed for 1968 were the heater controls, arm rests, interior door handles and window cranks, and the upper trim moulding on models so equipped. Rear side marker reflectors were also added to the lower bed side panels in 1968, per government regulations. The 302 [[V8]] became an option in late '69. The top trim for 1970 was now named '''Ranger XLT''' with '''Ranger''', '''Sport Custom''' and '''Custom''' rounding off the rest of the line. The fifth generation bodies were noted for durability and simplicity of design making them a favorite for restoration.
