Upcoming Ford Ranger Tremor Caught Undergoing Testing

Sponsored Links

Just yesterday, Ford Authority detailed the specifics of the upcoming Tremor package for the Ford Ranger. Now, our spies have caught a prototype of the Ford Ranger Tremor undergoing testing near Ford’s headquarters in Dearborn, corroborating our exclusive report surrounding the package’s various features.

Though the prototype truck seen here is wearing tight-fitting camo on the front and rear ends, there doesn’t appear to be anything different about the body or styling. Instead, the more noteworthy features can be found lower on in the vehicle.

This Ford Ranger Tremor prototype is riding on a set of wheels from the international-market Ranger Raptor, wrapped in a set aggressive All-Terrain rubber. Yesterday’s Ford Authority report specifically noted these features.

There’s also a set of high-clearance assist steps, which our report also listed. Incidentally, these assist steps aren’t ones that we’ve seen offered on current Ranger models.

It’s currently unclear whether the Tremor package will feature a lift or unique suspension, and Ford Authority sources weren’t clear on the matter. The model seen here appears to have the same height as “regular” Ranger models.

As we mentioned yesterday, the Ford Ranger Tremor will take the Tremor off-road formula established by the F-Series Super Duty Tremor, and apply it to the midsize pickup truck, allowing it to be more capable than the available FX4 package.

Tremor will be offered as a package (not a trim level) on at least the Lariat and XLT trim levels. Expected to be offered only in North America, the package will slot above the FX4 off-road package as a sort of “light” version of the Raptor not offered in the market.

Under the hood, the Ford Ranger Tremor will be powered by the same turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission as all current Ranger models sold in North America.

The Tremor package is expected to launch for the 2022 Ford Ranger, though it’s also possible that it could be added to the tail end of the 2021 model just as well.

We should know more about the Ranger Tremor soon, so be be sure to stay tuned and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Ranger news and continuous Ford news coverage.
