2023 Ford Maverick Tremor vs. Ford Maverick FX4: Comparison

The all-new Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package was revealed back in early August as the most off-road capable version of the compact pickup to date, building upon the existing FX4 Off-Road Package in that regard. A few weeks later, Ford Authority spies captured real-world photos of this new offering, which will also be sold in Mexico in early 2023 as well. Taking a closer look at the FX4 Off-Road Package and the Ford Maverick Tremor reveals some interesting differences between these two packages, however.

As we can see in this chart, both the Maverick Tremor and FX4 Off-Road Package-equipped pickups are powered by the same turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost powerplant, which produces 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. In terms of dimensions, the two variants feature the same wheelbase and width, but things vary a bit from there.

The Maverick Tremor is one-inch longer and 0.8 inches taller, with 0.5 inches of additional front overhang and 0.6 inches more rear overhang. The Tremor’s many additional upgrades also improve its off-road prowess with superior approach, breakover, and departure angles compared to the FX4 Off-Road Package, and give it 0.8 inches of additional ground clearance as well.

Compared to the Maverick with the FX4 Off-Road Package, the Maverick Tremor offers a slew of additional upgrades including a unique all-wheel drive system that utilizes a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature, specially tuned springs and shocks, upgraded half shafts, a heavy-duty transmission cooler, steel skid plates, a unique lower front fascia, dark gray anodized 17-inch aluminum wheels with Tremor Orange accents, and standard all-terrain tires.

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package retails for $2,995, while the Tremor Appearance Package costs an additional $1,495. Both will be available to order along with the regular Maverick when order banks open in September, though production was recently pushed back to November 14th, 2022.

      If you want one, you better order now. Order banks have been open since 9/15 and could be closing this week. Your dealer isn’t being truthful.

  3. Patty B.
