Last month, Ford Authority speculated that a Ford F-150 Tremor package had to be in the works, an idea that almost makes too much sense not to happen after the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor prepares to join the Ford Super Duty Tremor in The Blue Oval’s ever-expanding lineup of off-road-oriented pickup trucks. And now, it appears that we were correct, because we just caught the very first Ford F-150 Tremor prototype undergoing testing.
As expected, the Tremor package for the Ford F-150 appears to be very similar to the ones available on the current Super Duty and forthcoming 2021 model year Ranger. The F-150 Tremor will feature unique 18-inch black wheels, General Grabber A/T tires measuring in at 275/70R18 (33 inches tall), a suspension lift, and tow hooks.
And, unlike the “regular” 2021 F-150 models, the F-150 Tremor will feature dual exhaust. Interestingly, the prototype seen here is missing assist steps, but we fully expect the production model to have them.
The F-150 Tremor will compete directly with the new Silverado Trail Boss, GMC Sierra AT4, and Ram Rebel. It fills an important gap for the automaker, as The Blue Oval currently offers the FX4 package for the F-150, which is a rival to the Z71 package that’s not as capable as the Trail Boss, AT4, or Rebel.
The Tremor will slot neatly in between the FX4 package and the F-150 Raptor, which lands at the top of the heap in terms of off-road capability and an associated price. The Tremor should 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.
With more and more people getting outdoors and taking their vehicles off-road, the F-150 Tremor package adds yet another option for buyers who desire a capable pickup but don’t want to break the bank with an F-150 Raptor.
Expect a launch later on in the 2021 model year or for early 2022 model year.
