Check Out The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Towing A Trailer: Photo Gallery

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.

    Waste of 3K for a truck that really isn’t a off road truck.

      Lol nobody is pretending this is a baby Raptor, but it’s plenty capable for what most people use it for. The take rate on the FX-4 was very high, makes sense to capitalize on that success.

      “But it’s not a ‘real’ truck!” Lol yeah okay. Not everyone has to tow 10,000 lbs through the Rubicon trail on their way to work everyday. That’s why this truck exists.

  2. JohnTaurus

    Ford could be working on increasing the towing capacity, as 2K lbs is half of what is capable in other Mavericks with the tow package (the spin in the article not withstanding).

    1. Joe

      No it will be limited to 2K towing.

    Sounds like the wonderful Focus RS rear differential being used. Great idea, but will they leave off the front limited slip diff. option like they did until the final version of the Focus RS? Dirty trick to initial buyers as adding a Quaife to the RS was about $2000 +. $650 if done at the factory. Then it would be a real off road weapon.

    I simply ADORE Fords! Since ‘92, I have driven FOUR Fords. Tempo(Ford should be spanked) a T-Bird, a Taurus and now a Town Car. Love it always!

    Great idea for Ford to produce a small truck. Trucks are getting to big and to expensive.
    Why do they have to make them so ugly.
    The grill and headlights really don’t look good.
    And the interior looks cheap
    It seems that MFGs do this deliberately
    I don’t mean cheap materials, I mean design it to look less appealing

    Why is Ford messing around with new models when they haven’t event built existing orders?

    One day short of 8 months we received our Maverick Lariat , 2.0 awd , this vehicle has exceeded all of my expectations, less than 1k and we are getting 27 mpg city /34mpg on the road , unreal . I have the 4k tow package as we tow a small cargo trailer when we go south for the winter (4×6) , havent towed any thing yet , will tow later this month. My Brother in law drives an F150 crew cab , is impressed with how this unit drives and preforms , We went from an Edge 2.0 awd titanium and aer not disappointed , rommy,and comfortable and quiet , and peppy ! so far so good !
