2021 Ford Lobo Tremor Launches in Mexico

As Ford Authority reported late last year, the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor is following in the iconic model’s footsteps and is officially known as the 2021 Ford Lobo Tremor in Mexico, a name that dates back decades. Now, the rugged, off-road-focused Lobo Tremor has officially launched in that country – joining new models like the Ford Transit Courier and Ford Ranger Wildtrak – and is essentially identical to the F-150 Tremor that’s already on sale in the U.S.

That means the 2021 Ford Lobo Tremor comes exclusively in SuperCrew configuration with a 5.5-foot box, Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, 10-speed automatic transmission, and standard four-wheel drive. The Tremor features an upgraded suspension with retuned front and rear springs, revised front hub knuckles and upper control arms, Tremor-specific monotube shocks at the front, and twin-tube shocks at the rear.

The Lobo Tremor rolls on matte-finish 18-inch wheels wrapped with 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires, a Raptor-style bash plate up front, a locking rear differential, and an optional Torsen limited-slip front differential. Exterior enhancements include a unique grille, a blacked-out Ford oval, recovery hooks, fixed running boards, and a series of Active Orange accents inside and out.

As for the origin of the name “Lobo,” it stems from the 1990s, when the F-150 wasn’t selling terribly well in Mexico. Ford decided to rename it Lobo – which translates to “Wolf” – in an attempt to better appeal to young truck buyers. Today, XL-trimmed trucks are still called “F-150” in Mexico, while XLT and up trims bear the Lobo name.

The 2021 Ford Lobo Tremor is available in three exterior colors – Obsidian Black, Stone Gray, and Metallic Navy Blue – and is available now at all authorized Ford dealers in Mexico with a starting price of 1,200,800 pesos, or $59,474 USD.

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.
