Ford’s Tremor off-road package—which it recently introduced for the Ranger—is now making its way to another popular pickup in the lineup: the all-new F-150. Does it look like a baby Raptor? A subtle one, maybe.
The F-150 Tremor has all the features of the ‘regular’ F-150, and then some. It’s built with a high-strength steel frame and military-grade aluminum alloy body, and under its hood is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels.
By “and then some” we mean a heap of performance upgrades. Its suspension features retuned springs up front and out back that increases both ground clearance and traction. Meanwhile, the Tremor-specific front monotube shocks and rear twin tube shocks have also been retuned for softer damping at low speeds and added damping and control off-road.
Underneath are new 18-inch matte finish alloy wheels shod in 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires, plus a standard rear locking differential with an available front Torsen limited-slip diff to boot. With this setup, the F-150 Tremor stands 25.4mm wider than the non-Tremor pickup. Towing capacity is rated at just a little under 5,000kg, while payload capacity is at 855kg.
This F-150 also comes with off-road hardware in the cabin. There are off-road fixed running boards, recovery hooks, and a six-position auxiliary power switch pack for adding off-road winches and air compressors.
Extra driver-assist tech are highlighted by the Ford Trail Toolbox, which includes features like trail one-pedal drive and trail turn assist. There are also selectable drive modes, namely: normal, sport, tow/haul, eco, slippery, deep snow/sand, mud/rut, and rock crawl. Added safety tech such as hill descent control and trail control are also included in the F-150 Tremor.
Do you think Ford Philippines should add this to its local offerings?
