Ford Motor Company has filed to trademark Ranger Tremor with IP Australia, Ford Authority has learned.
Filed on December 7th, 2021 and assigned serial number 2234284, the application contains the goods and services description of “Motor vehicles, namely, automobiles, pick-up trucks, electric vehicles, sport utility vehicles, off-road vehicles; none of the foregoing being caravans, mobile homes (caravans), towed vehicles or other vehicles incorporating accommodation, nor any accessories for caravans, mobile homes, towed vehicles, or other vehicles incorporating accommodation.”
As Ford Authority reported last week, Ford Motor Company also recently filed to trademark Tremor with the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand. At that time, we speculated that the Ford Ranger Tremor was likely headed to both New Zealand and Australia, as the mid-size pickup is already on sale there, while the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty – the other two models currently available in Tremor form – are not.
The Ford Ranger Tremor was revealed in the U.S. last September for the 2021 model year, immediately becoming the most off-road capable version of that model on sale in America, as the more hardcore Ranger Raptor is not currently sold in the U.S. In New Zealand and Australia, the Tremor would bridge the gap between the Ranger Raptor and less off-road-capable models.
The Ranger is currently New Zealand’s top-selling commercial vehicle, as well as the country’s best-selling vehicle for five consecutive years. Meanwhile, the Ranger Tremor has been well-received by both customers and dealers in the U.S. since its launch, as Ford Authority reported back in August.
Meanwhile, the all-new, next-generation international market Ranger was just revealed last month, though thus far, there has been no mention of a new Tremor or Ranger Raptor.
