Back in early December, Ford Authority spotted a 2024 Ford F-150 prototype out testing for the very first time, and since then, several others have appeared, giving us an idea of what to expect from the best-selling pickup’s forthcoming refresh. Over the past few months, Ford Authority has also spotted a 2024 F-150 Lariat, an F-150 Raptor R, and a host of interesting features such as the truck’s new taillights, 22-inch wheels, and interior, along with its infotainment screen. Now, Ford Authority has spotted a 2024 Ford F-150 Tremor out in the wild, which seems to be hiding what could be a new tailgate design.
As Ford Authority reported last year, the 2024 Ford F-150 could be getting a multi-function tailgate – a feature that’s already available on the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, and Ram 1500 – the truck’s chief competitors. Ford has explored the idea of a multi-function tailgate for years to this point, even filing more than patent outlining what this feature might look like, as well as how it could operate.
Unlike some previously-spied models, this 2024 Ford F-150 Tremor doesn’t try to hide its identity too hard, as we can clearly see the Tremor bedside decals peeking out from behind camo pieces, along with the truck’s unique black wheels and larger all-terrain tires. Unlike some other prototypes, the entire front end of this model is covered in heavy camo, concealing any unique traits there. However, the most intriguing feature on this pickup lies in the rear. There, we can see that the entire rear end is covered in seriously heavy camo, designed to conceal something – most likely, a new tailgate design of some sort. Some previously-spotted prototypes at least had the taillights exposed, but in this case, those are covered up as well.
If Ford is indeed planning on offering a multi-function tailgate on the 2024 Ford F-150, it would help the model better position itself against the competition. Coincidentally, Ford Authority also posted the automaker benchmarking one of those rivals against the refreshed F-150 – the Chevy Silverado – in late March.
As a reminder, the current Ford F-150 Tremor slots in the best-selling pickup’s lineup in between the entry-level off-road-focused Rattler and the hardcore, high-performance Raptor – though unlike other Tremor models, the F-150 version exists as its own trim level, rather than an optional package. Currently, the Tremor adds an array of upgrades to the F-150 including unique 18-inch aluminum Dark Matte-finish wheels, 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires, an upgraded suspension with retuned springs, front hub knuckles and upper control arms, unique shocks, skid plates, a locking rear differential, and a one-inch wider stance, along with unique interior and exterior accents.
