For those looking for a classic Ford truck with just a hair more of that “built Ford tough” attitude than can be found in the regular F-150, the Tremor is your ideal vehicle. Packed with powerful, best-in-class engine options, unbeatable towing capabilities, innovative off-roading potential, not to mention forward-thinking tech and safety features, the F-150 Tremor is one of the most sought-after pickups on the market today. Let’s explore a few of the interesting facts that make it so special.
1. Wheels for Traction
If there’s a feature that makes the F-150 stand out the most, it’s the outstanding off-roading mechanisms. The Ford F-150 Tremor features 18-inch aluminum wheels with a dark matte finish. Along with that, it has new 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires. This tire and wheel combination gives the Tremor its distinctive, aggressive look, and they are one of the most notable features of its exterior design. Furthermore, this combination gives this pickup extra ground clearance and a 1-inch wider stance, making them a great feature for off-road driving.
2. Shocks Off the Pavement
If you haven't guessed it by now, the F-150 Tremor is factory-built for off-roading. The front hub knuckles and upper control arms are revised while Tremor-specific monotube shocks at the front and twin-tube shocks at the rear - emblazoned with the Tremor logo - are tuned for softer damping at low speeds, with additional damping and control for more severe off-road events.
3. The Honorouable Engine
The available 3.5L EcoBoost®V6 with 10-speed transmission delivers power ratings of 400 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine also beats out all competitors with a best-in-class available tow rating of 14,000 lbs. Features include the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system with two injectors per cylinder - one in the air intake port, another inside the cylinder - to increase performance. Plus, twin intercooled turbos for on-demand power with virtually no lag.
4. Tech of the Future
In addition to the features that make it supremely powerful, Ford offers a wide range of tech features for the F-150 Tremor, including a 12-inch digital instrumentation panel, a Ford Sync 4 infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen display, cloud-based connected services, a FordPass smartphone app, and more. Additionally, the truck includes a standard 6-position auxiliary power switch bank that allows owners to add winches, air compressors, off-road lighting, and other accessories. And, to power tools at the job site or equipment at the campsite, the available Pro Power Onboard system provides 2.0 kilowatts of auxiliary electric power via an outlet in the bed.
5. Keeps You Safe and Sound
Safety is always the standard when it comes to Ford’s design. In addition to the safety equipment Ford offers across the F-150 lineup, including Ford Co-Pilot360 advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), the Tremor is available with a surround-view camera system that includes a front-view camera. Using the front-view camera, drivers can see exactly what terrain the truck will cross depending on steering inputs.
