Is It Just A Matter Of Time Before We See A Ford F-150 Tremor?

FoMoCo debuted the Ford Super Duty Tremor last June as a new option package that adds off-road prowess to an already-capable truck. Then, just two weeks ago, The Blue Oval revealed the Ford Ranger Tremor with a similar formula. Now, the only missing piece of the puzzle is a Ford F-150 Tremor, which would be the next logical addition to The Blue Oval’s truck line.

There are many reasons to believe that an F-150 Tremor is coming at some point in the future. For starters, Ford needs something to compete with the new Silverado Trail Boss, GMC Sierra AT4, and Ram Rebel. And while The Blue Oval currently offers the FX4, which is a rival to the Z71 package, it’s not as capable as the Trail Boss, AT4 or Rebel.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Raptor, which lands at the top of the heap in terms of off-road capability and an associated price. Thus, there’s clearly room in the middle of the entry-level FX4 package and the range-topping Raptor to satisfy customers who want something more capable than what’s offered by FX4, but something less hardcore (and also less expensive) than the F-150 Raptor. That would be the task of a hypothetical F-150 Tremor package.

“But wait,” you might say, “can the Tremor and Raptor co-exist?” That’s a great question!

Following the debut of the Super Duty Tremor, there was a notion that Ford trucks would be available with either the Tremor package or as a Raptor, but not both. However, that theory was recently put to rest when the Ranger Tremor debuted, as it joins the Ranger FX4 package and the Ranger Raptor. That said, it’s worth noting that – as of this writing – there isn’t a single market in the world where all three Ranger off-road configurations – FX4, Tremor and Raptor – are offered side-by-side.

So the only question left to ask is, what would an F-150 Tremor package be like? And the answer is, probably something very similar to what we’ve already seen on the Ranger and Super Duty Tremor packages.

A hypothetical F-150 Tremor package would have a suspension lift, specially-tuned shocks, beefier tires, a locking rear differential, plus unique exterior and interior accents. Though the Ranger and Super Duty Tremor packages vary in terms of the equipment each contains, these are the common items between the two. We’d also expect the F-150 Tremor to be offered with the same range of engines as the regular, non-Raptor F-150.

At the end of the day, an F-150 Tremor simply makes too much sense not to happen. So now, the only question left to ask is, when will Ford fill this perceived void in its lineup? With the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 just weeks away from hitting showrooms, we’d like to think that it will be in the near-term future.

  1. Truth is FORD build a 2014 F-150 Tremor regular cab 3.5 EcoBoost, So yes it might return again in some form now that they have a Ranger and Super Duty trim level

    • The question was whether or not it makes sense to, not whether there’s any precedence before. we all know about the 2014 Tremor, but is it worth putting against other variants in the current lineup?

      • The answer to your question is YES, FORD is big on trucks and trim levels. I can see this trim being added to the F150 after the 2021 model downs

  2. The 2014 F-150 Tremor was not a sales success. The concept was good…regular cab/short
    bed “sport” truck; but, dealers orderd them wih almost every option and (in my area) tacked
    on ADMs that priced the trucks into the stratosphere. I saw several of the trucks on dealer
    lots well into the 2015 model run. I think this may have ruined the chance for a return of the
    regular cab/short bed “sport” truck. Today, dealers don’t have this combination on
    their lots (unless its a XL “work truck”).

    • The Regular Cab Tremor was supposed to be for customers who want something like the Lightning with the EcoBoost 3.5 for a lesser price. It didn’t work the only Regular Cab that will work is a SuperChargered V8 Lightning. If Ford build another F-150 Tremor it will be a 4 door like Super Duty and Ranger

  3. You’re correct not a sales success one year only (which makes it very unique ) ADM and the fact that They sat on dealer lots! in my case the truck was on the lot for 100 days and I received about $7000 discount which made it attractive.. since then I get compliments everywhere I go people have never seen one for the most part it’s race Red ,Perrelli Tire‘s ,black wheels interior is very unique… they may not do it again but I hope they do
