Ford Motor Company has filed to trademark Tremor with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines, Ford Authority has learned.
Filed on December 10th, 2021, and assigned serial number 42021529235, the application contains the goods and services description of “Motor vehicles, namely, automobiles, pick-up trucks, electric vehicles, sport utility vehicles, off-road vehicles, and their structural parts.”
The Ford Authority Take
This trademark filing follows a similar filing for “Tremor” in New Zealand and “Ranger Tremor” in Australia, signaling that the Ford Ranger Tremor is likely headed to those countries. The Ranger is the most likely candidate to be given the Tremor treatment in these countries, 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 that particular country, as the more hardcore Ranger Raptor is not currently sold in the U.S. In New Zealand, Australia, and the Philippines, the Tremor would represent a gap-filling model in the Ranger lineup. 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.
