2021 Ford F-150 Tremor: First Real World Pictures

The 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor was revealed way back in December, and yet, we haven’t seen any pictures of the new model in the real world – until now. We recently caught the new 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor out driving around, giving us a nice glimpse at what we can expect it to look like in the flesh.

It’s difficult to tell from these pictures, but it looks like this particular Tremor is a High-trim model. As we reported earlier this week, unlike the Ford Ranger Tremor and Ford Super Duty Tremor, the Ford F-150 Tremor is not an option package. Rather, it will be offered as a separate and distinct trim level with three equipment tiers based on pre-existing trim configurations. Ford designed the 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor Standard (400A), Mid (401A), and High (402A) equipment tiers around the STX, XLT 302A, and Lariat 502A trim series, respectively.

The F-150 Tremor is easy to visually differentiate from the rest of the Ford F-150 lineup thanks to a host of unique features. They include a redesigned hood and front end with a unique grille featuring a blacked-out Ford oval, which is highlighted by the signature Tremor color of Active Orange that also accentuates two front recovery hooks.

Raptor-inspired off-road fixed running boards are mounted close to the body to prevent damage, while a cutout rear bumper features a high-flow dual exhaust flanking its two rear recovery hooks. Active Orange-highlighted badging appears on the fenders, bedsides, and tailgate.

The F-150 Tremor comes exclusively in SuperCrew configuration with a 5.5-foot box, Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, and 10-speed automatic transmission, plus standard four-wheel drive. The suspension features retuned springs, front hub knuckles, and upper control arms, as well as Tremor-specific monotube shocks at the front and twin-tube shocks at the rear.

The 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor rolls on a set of unique matte-finish 18-inch wheels wrapped with 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires. It also includes a locking rear differential, with an optional late-availability upgrade to a Torsen limited-slip front differential, while Tremor high series customers get a torque-on-demand transfer case similar to the one used in the F-150 Raptor. The F-150 Tremor is expected to launch this summer.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    In the shot from the rear, it seems to still have a lot of front rake. A little leveling would work wonders.

    1. Justin L.

      It’s on purpose….so when you do work the vehicle sits level…I don’t understand the fascination with level trucks.

  2. Herman Wieler

    The fascination comes from some of us use our trucks mainly for play, not work.

    1. Ryan

      A Tremor is meant to be able to work and play, hence the stance. The Raptor is meant for pure play

  3. Sr

    I concur with Justin. It is a functional stance. Also from a aesthetics standpoint, the last thing that you want is to load up your truck and have it look like a dog dragging it’s rear end on the carpet.

    Level it and add air bags. That’s what I did.

    1. Tuddleston

      YES – I did the exact same thing – couldn’t be happier!

    3.5L V6 Powerboost Hybrid?..10 Speed Transmission? I’ll buy it!
