2021 Ford F-150 Raptor And Tremor Pictured Hanging Out Together

This past April, Ford Authority reported that 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor production was part of Job #2, which applies to all Ford F-150 models built on or after July 6th, 2021. That meant that 2021 F-150 Raptor production at the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant was capable of accommodating the third-generation Raptor after that date.

Last month, Ford Authority confirmed that the new pickup was not delayed, as some believed, and that production was scheduled to begin in August. Earlier this week, we got confirmation that the new Raptor was beginning to hit dealer lots, and now, Ford North America Product Communications director Mike Levine is giving us a look at the Raptor and Tremor side-by-side.

It’s certainly interesting to see these two off-road-focused Ford F-150 pickups parked next to each other, given the fact that both are brand new and quite different in a number of ways. While the 2021 F-150 Raptor is a standalone model equipped with serious hardware, the Tremor is a full-fledged trim level – not an option package – but rather, three distinct equipment tiers based around three already-familiar option groupings, as Ford Authority reported earlier this year.

The Tremor comes with a host of upgrades over the regular F-150, including an upgraded suspension with retuned springs, Tremor-specific monotube shocks at the front, twin-tube shocks in the rear, matte-finish 18-inch wheels, 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires, a Raptor-style bash plate, a locking rear differential, and an optional Torsen limited-slip front differential.

In addition to the H.O. version of Ford’s twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, the 2021 F-150 Raptor comes equipped with a five-link rear suspension, 24-inch coil springs, Fox Live Valve internal bypass shocks, and 35-inch or, for the first time, 37-inch, specially-designed BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A K02 tires. This particular model has the latter, larger tires.

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.

    37’s on the Raptor, yet barely taller…hmm. What size tires on the Tremor?

      The Raptor has a completely different suspension with rear coils. It’s tuned for high speed off road trail running, not rock-crawling. The F-150 Tremor, like it’s Super Duty Tremor brother, has a suspension lift as part of the package.
