2014 Ford F-150 Tremor revealedThu, 27 Jun 2013
Street-truck enthusiasts looking for V8 power with V6 fuel economy, look no further.
In what initially looks like a baby Ford Raptor or a true successor to the F-150 SVT Lightning, Ford has revealed a special trim package for their F-150, named the Tremor.
Featuring the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine packing 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, the Tremor comes with the short-wheelbase, regular cab and 4x2 set-up. Along with a six-speed automatic, other mechanical features include a launch-optimized 4.10 rear axle, twin independent variable camshaft timing and 90 percent of peak torque available from 1,700 to 5,000 rpm.
Exterior changes include Ford’s FX appearance package, 20-inch flat black wheels and black badges with red lettering.
Inside, you’ll find a floor-mounted shifter with a flow-through center console; black leather bucket seats with red piping, plus Alcantara inserts; brushed metal accents; and a red-stitched steering wheel.
“The new Tremor gives F-150 customers another option to drive a highly capable, distinctive performance truck with features typically found only in the aftermarket,” said Brian Bell, F-150 product marketing manager. “Plus, the EcoBoost engine is available for the first time in a short-wheelbase F-150.”
The Tremor looks to do battle with Ram’s 1500 Sport (and similar offerings from other automakers) as it will presumably hit the market later this year.
No word on pricing yet officially, but expect it to land in the low- to mid-30 grand area, which would put it right on par with Ram.
Stay tuned for a sure-to-come pricing release for the Tremor in the upcoming weeks.
