It seems even pickup truck owners are looking for a more fuel-efficient alternative since Ford has come up with the F-150 Tremor, its first-ever EcoBoost-powered sport truck \"that addresses the needs of street truck enthusiasts looking for high-performance V8 power with V6 fuel economy.\"
\"The new Tremor gives F-150 customers yet another option to drive a highly capable, distinctive performance truck with features typically found only in the aftermarket,\" said F-150 product marketing manager Brian Bell.
The Tremor utilizes the short-wheelbase, regular-cab F-150 platform. Powering it is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that has a maximum output of 365hp and a maximum torque of 569Nm delivered through a six-speed automatic transmission. Helping it achieve a company-claimed fuel mileage of 6.8km/L in the city is its twin independent variable camshaft timing system, with up to 90% of peak torque reportedly available from 1,700rpm to 5,000rpm.
An electronic locking rear differential that\'s standard for both the two- and four-wheel-drive variants helps deliver the power to the pavement by improving traction during takeoff.
To emphasize its sporty nature, the Tremor comes with a custom-inspired FX Appearance Package that features stealthy, flat-black accents, 20-inch flat-black wheels, stylized bodyside graphics, and black badges with red lettering.
