2021 Ford F-150 Tremor

Published By

Remember in Tremors when they pole vault from boulder to boulder to get to the truck before the sand worms eat them? Really should have been this truck they escaped to, but sadly, thirty years separated the classic horror comedy from this mega-tough truck. Still, if you need to get somewhere in a hurry over rocky, uneven, unpredictable terrain, accept no substitute. 

Part of Ford’s off-road family of 4×4 packages (joining the Super Duty Tremor and Ranger Tremor) the 2021 F-150 Tremor is Ford’s response to the after-market modifications they saw their customers making for off-road fun. Now there’s no need to wait for your custom shop to hook you up, no need to spend weekends in your garage fine tuning your off road beast, Ford has done the work for you at the factory. 

Starting with the SuperCrew F-150 configuration with its V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission (and of course four-wheel drive), the Tremor adds a thoroughly upgraded suspension with tuned springs, front monotube shocks, and rear twin-tube shocks exclusive to the Tremor. 

Riding on 33-inch Grabber tires from General, the truck has plenty of ground clearance, and the optional 360 degree cameras will help you avoid anything you can’t drive over. For obstacles that happen to surprise you, a bash plate borrowed from the Raptor package will protect your underbody from harm. 

A slew of technical additions make driving over wild landscapes easier, too. In addition to the available cameras, driving modes like the Trail One-Pedal Drive helps with braking/throttle deployment when rock crawling, and the available Trail Turn Assist reduces the turning radius by braking the inside wheel. Selectable drive modes include Deep Snow, Eco, Mud, and of course Towing as the Tremor lets you haul nearly 11,000 pounds of your favorite off-road toys or living arrangements. 

You don’t have to take it to the middle of nowhere to see the difference, either. The package includes plenty of aesthetic upgrades that set the Tremor apart at a glance. From the modified hood and aggressive grille up front to the dual exhaust and recovery hooks in back.  

While you won’t have to wait for your Tremor to come back from the custom shop after you buy it, you will have to wait a bit before the Tremor is ready. Ford expects to deliver the off-road titan summer of next year.
