Earlier this month, The Blue Oval revealed the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package. The all-new offerings builds on the capabilities of the FX4 Off-Road Package with a slew of beefed-up features and performance upgrades to the small pickup. Ford Authority spies recently captured photos of the small but mighty Ford Maverick Tremor towing a trailer, showing us what the small but mighty Maverick Tremor is capable of.
For starters, this particular 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor is hauling a low-profile Featherlite trailer as it undergoes testing. Of course, it’s impossible to say how much weight is being hauled in that trailer without seeing what’s inside it, but it’s safe to assume that Ford is testing how the Maverick handles with a large load. The 2023 Maverick with the Tremor Off-Road Package is capable of hauling 1,200 pounds of max payload and towing 2,000 pounds behind it, so it’s certainly capable of handling a heavy load without breaking a sweat.
Under the skin, the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor sports unique springs and shocks that are specially tuned for off-road use, which also give the pickup a one-inch lift. It also features upgraded half shafts and a heavy duty transmission cooler, with steel skid plates to protect its more delicate aspects. The package is exclusively available with the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost, and utilizes an all-wheel-drive system with a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature, capable of diverting all rear axle torque to either wheel as needed.
On the outside, the Ford Maverick Tremor gains a special front grille that makes it easy to tell apart from its “regular” counterparts. The lower part of the front fascia is designed to improve its approach angle, along with Tremor Orange tow hooks for a splash of color. It rolls on a set of adonized 17-inch aluminum wheels with standard all-terrain tires. Customers in search of a little extra can opt for the Tremor Appearance Package. Order banks are expected to open next month.
