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.
