Ford Mexico is in the midst of a major transformation as it aims to become a major export for engineering services following the opening of a new Global Technology and Business Center, as well as the launch of several new products including the 2022 Ford Expedition and E-Transit in March, as well as the Ford Lobo Raptor R – otherwise known as the Ford F-150 Raptor R in the U.S. – later this year. Now, that lineup is set to expand once again, as the recently-revealed 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor will also launch in Mexico early next year, the automaker has announced.
The Mexican version of the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor is identical in every way to variant headed to the U.S., which means that it features a number of unique exterior treatments including its front grille and lower front fascia designed to improve the truck’s approach angle, blacked-out Ford logos, headlights, and taillights, Tremor Orange tow hooks, unique dark gray anodized 17-inch aluminum wheels with Tremor Orange accents, and standard all-terrain tires.
Inside, the Maverick Tremor gets Black Onyx seats with stitched Tremor logos and Tremor Orange accents, while that signature color also adorns the door pulls, register vents, and center console.
Available in conjunction with XLT and Lariat trims, the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor is powered exclusively by the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost, and utilizes the same twin-clutch rear-drive all-wheel drive system with a differential lock that’s present in the Ford Bronco Sport Badlands. Other enhancements include unique springs and shocks, a one-inch lift, beefier half shafts, a heavy-duty transmission cooler, and steel skid plates.
The Maverick Tremor is capable of hauling up to 1,200 pounds of max payload and can tow as much as 2,000 pounds. Five selectable drive modes are available, as well as Trail Control. Production is slated to begin this fall, with deliveries beginning in Mexico at an as-of-now undetermined date in 2023.
