•767-200ER - An extended-range variant first delivered to El Al in 1984. It became the first 767 to complete a nonstop transatlantic journey, and broke the flying distance record for twinjet airliners several times.
•767-300 - A lengthened 767 ordered by Japan Airlines in 1983. It first flew on January 14, 1986, and was delivered to JAL on September 25.

The aircraft entered service with AA in 1988. In 1995, EVA Air used a 767-300ER to inaugurate the first transpacific 767 service.
•767-300F - A highly-automated air freight version of the 767-300ER, ordered by United Parcel Service in 1993 and delivered in 1995.
•767-400ER - Another extended long-range variant, made as a niche aircraft for Delta Air Lines and Continental Airlines to replace their Lockheed L-1011 and McDonnell Douglas DC-10 fleets. It is the only 767 model to feature "raked" wingtips, which increase fuel efficiency. The first production 767-400ER was delivered in 2000.
•E-767 - AWACS platform used by the Japan Self-Defense Forces. Essentially the E-3 Sentry mission package on a 767 platform.

The United States Air Force has expressed interest in the aircraft, with a contract for the lease of 100 aircraft under review. The KC-767 has lost out to the Airbus A330 in two recent contests, for the RAF and Royal Australian Air Force.
•E-10 MC2A - Replacement for the Boeing 707-based E-3 Sentry AWACS, the E-8 Joint STARS aircraft, and EC-135 ELINT aircraft. This is an all-new system, with a powerful Active Electronically Scanned Array and not based upon the Japanese AWACS aircraft.
