While the all-new, next-generation Ford Ranger has already launched in select international markets, the mid-size pickup won’t arrive in the U.S. until later this year for the 2024 model year, as Ford Authority previously reported. As we await its arrival, Ford Authority has spotted a number of next-gen Ranger prototypes in different configurations, including a SuperCrew, an extended wheelbase prototype, a long bed model, and a North American spec pickup wearing zero camouflage. Now, Ford Authority has spotted what appears to be a 2024 Ford Ranger Tremor SuperCab, which is notable for a few reasons.
For starters, the current-gen Ranger Tremor Off-Road Package is offered exclusively on SuperCrew pickups – not SuperCab models. However, there are several tells that make it seem as if this is, indeed, a 2024 Ford Ranger Tremor model – it’s equipped with a skid plate up front, along with what appears to be a raised suspension, and General Grabber tires, which are currently included with the 2023 Ranger Tremor and not the FX4 Off-Road Package. Additionally, the FX4 package doesn’t come with any sort of lift, and this prototype also appears to have provisions for side marker lamps on the front wheel wells, which are required in the U.S.
Currently, the Tremor Off-Road Package adds a considerable amount of equipment to the current-gen Ranger as an option for XLT Mid and High Package- equipped pickups, as well as Lariat-trimmed models equipped with four-wheel drive and the aforementioned SuperCrew configuration. On the outside, that list includes a black steel exposed bash plate and a host of Magnetic-painted parts including the fender vent surrounds, black mesh grille with black bars and red accent nostrils, wheel flares, front and rear bumpers, and unique 17-inch wheels.
Additionally, the Tremor package adds off-road hoop steps, LT265/70R17 all-terrain tires, a Tremor box decal, skid plates, an electronic locking differential, and an off-road tuned suspension with Fox dampers. Inside the cabin, the Ranger Tremor is equipped with floor liners, an off-road screen in the instrument cluster, six upfitter switches, black interior accents, Miko seats, the Terrain Management System, and Trail Control.
As Ford Authority reported back in September 2021, the 2024 Ford Ranger is expected to enter production at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in May of 2023. Meanwhile, the Ranger Raptor will also be making its debut in the U.S. this year as well, which will mark that high-performance off-roader’s debut in that particular country.
