2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Appearance Package: First Real World Photos

Not too long ago, Ford Authority spies spotted a pair of 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor models undergoing testing, shortly before the veil was officially pulled off the small off-road-ready pickup. Additionally, Ford Authority spotted a Maverick Tremor undergoing testing while pulling a trailer, and now, our spies have hunted another example of the off-road-ready pickup, this time featuring the Tremor Appearance Package.

2023 Ford Maverick

The Tremor Appearance Package can be added to any 2023 Ford Maverick with the Tremor Off-Road Package. The package adds a handful of exclusive exterior accents to the truck, including a roof painted in Carbonized Gray with matching Carbonized Gray mirror caps, along with grayscale stripes applied to the doors and hood. Other exterior enhancements that identify this pickup as a Maverick Tremor include a unique front grille and lower front fascia, black Ford ovals, Tremor Orange tow hooks and grille accents. The package carries a $1,495 price tag, not including the base package.

As a reminder, the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package isn’t its own trim level, as is the case with the Ford F-150 Tremor, but instead exists as an optional package on the XLT and Lariat trim levels. Under the hood, the Maverick Tremor is exclusively powered by the Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine and features a unique all-wheel-drive system that packs a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a variable differential lock.

2023 Ford Maverick

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor rides on a suspension that features unique springs and shocks that are tuned specifically for off-road use and grant the small pickup one extra inch of lift. Look underneath to find upgraded half-shafts and a heavy-duty transmission cooler with skid plates covering the more delicate bits. As far as towing capacity goes, the Ford Maverick Tremor is rated to carry 1,200 pounds of payload in addition to 2,000 pounds for towing. The Tremor Off-Road Package costs $3,995 and will be available to order in September.

    stop telling us all the options and accessories we can have installed on a truck we can’t get. it is truly maddening that FORD shows us bells and whistles for a vehicle that they can’t produce and really infuriating when they tell us that if we drop options we did select so they can actually make the truck and then show us the bling so they can raise the price several grand for paint and polish items. then they’ll come back and tell us that if you select those options that your build will be delayed again, typical dog and pony show, when will we stop getting the run-around????? BUILD THE GD TRUCKS THEN OFFER THE ACCESSORIES not the other way around!!!

      agree 1,000% I ordered a base xlt hybrid,one opt. trailer hitch, ordered Oct 2021 still waiting !!!!!!!!!!!!! Ford seems to have ZERO customer service!!!!!

    So several years ago, I stopped buying American-made cars and only bought cars from Japan. I want to get rid of my Tacoma and buy a Maverick. So, I contacted over 10 Ford dealers, and they all want to charge me from $3,0000 to $9,000 over MSRP. I am DONE with American automakers.

      Hey Bruce, I agree with you on the points you raised. We have always been a Ford Family the past 30 years BUT when I decided to change
      out my 2005 Ford Explorer, I bought a 2011 Toyota Highlander Ltd and have had amazing service from it. I saw a Maverick in our local Ford dealership last July, 2021 and put in an order, after taking it for a quick spin. It was not only the better mileage…it’s easier to maneuver than my hubby’s 2005 Ford F-150. My Toyota was low-mileage and, as I waited this Spring for notice that my 2022 Maverick Hybrid Lariat model was in
      production, the high gas prices kicked up a notch and my PATIENCE was rewarded the end of April (9 months after my initial order). Price out the door was as quoted at my reservation date and we are very happy we waited out the delay. We call it our Mini F-150 and we’re so happy to
      see a drop by over half in our monthly gas bills! It’s sporty, peppy while being economical … and our Toyota Highlander increased in value this
      past Spring-to-Summer. Put in your order for the 2023 Maverick and I expect you won’t be disappointed 👍

        maryann i’m glad that you were able to get your maverick and that you’re enjoying it. you got your order in before the rush and even then had to wait 9 months, the rest of us that got our orders in behind you have been waiting much longer some have waited over a year to date. the wait is not the real issue, even though we all hate it, it’s the fact that FORD and the dealerships have left all of us completely in the dark with no idea about anything!! i’m sure we’ll enjoy our mavericks if we ever get them, but now we’re contending with dishonest dealers that have used the shortage and delays to make excuses and jack up the price, preying on peoples emotions and generally pissing everyone off that are still waiting. that’s the issue!!!!!!!!

      2. Ralph Natola

        Hi mayann, i had an identical timeline and experience with my maverick hybrid. Great price, handling, economy, and positve dealer contact throughout. I do have sympathy for buyers in waiting, but it is not just ford delayed. Every car company has low inventory or order only protocal. Enjoy your baby truck, we are the lucky ones.

      It’s like they don’t want our business. When they’re struggling again they’ll be begging like beggars.

  4. Daniel E.

    All the engines on the Ford mavericks are defective from the recalls I’ve seen and they have no intention of fixing them so why would I buy a new one?

  5. donnie

    farley is a farce-ford is so un American anymore-like ordering a snowblower and waiting two winters before it comes-wheres my maverick-ordered sept 16, 2021 and had vin and in production for two months– 0 customer service

  6. Chuck foster

    Well hello everyone, as I read this blog it hurts me to see this, I work for the automotive industry and I got a appt to order my 2023 maverick tremor. So I’m praying that thing turn around for us soon. Because I’m really In need of a new car. This would be my very first ever new car ever. So ford if you are reading this get your house in order. And get sh!t rolling. Or you’ll lose millions of customers.
