The refreshed 2022 Ford Super Duty was revealed back in early March with some new interior and exterior color options, upgraded tech features, and the addition of some new and revised appearance packages. Additionally, Ford Authority has reported in recent weeks that the 2022 Super Duty King Ranch and Platinum will come with standard four-wheel-drive, while the King Ranch trim will lose its 18-inch wheel option and all trims will lose the underhood service light. Now, sources familiar with the 2022 Ford Super Duty launch tell Ford Authority that the Tremor Off-Road Package is being dropped for F-250 and F-350 models equipped with XLT trim.
This means that those who want to add the Tremor package to a 2022 Super Duty must pair it with Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum trims. Choosing the Tremor package also requires a few additional select choices, including either Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8 or 6.7L Power Stroke and SuperCrew body style. Pairing the F-250 with the 6.7L diesel also requires adding the F-250 Trailer Tow High Capacity with Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System and Pro Trailer Backup Assist Package (53Q) or the F-250 Trailer Tow Package – High Capacity (535) packages.
Ticking the Tremor box does add quite a bit of additional equipment, however. That includes either 3.55 rear gears for diesel-powered trucks or 4.30 gears when paired with the gas engine, both of which are encased in an electronic locking rear differential, with a limited-slip diff located up front. The Tremor rolls on a set of black 18-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch LT285/75R18 off-road tires as well, with increased ride height up front courtesy of new springs.
A set of specially-tuned shocks, skidplates, water fording vent tubes, unique front air dams optimized to improve approach angle, Rock Crawl mode, Trail Control Mode, and off-road running boards all add to the Tremor’s capability when it leaves the pavement. Wrapping up the package are additional features including Lane Departure Warning, Tremor decals, and body-color wheel lip molding.
As Ford Authority reported last month, 2022 Ford Super Duty production was scheduled to begin at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant on July 9th, 2021, and at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant on July 22th, 2021, though those dates could be affected by the ongoing chip shortage.
