I'm nothing if not consistent!

Seriously though, If the great Ford news is the pricing I don't find anything great about it.

I think I said pretty much the same in that its a niche produce. Ford is not expecting a huge sales surge from the Tremor, its just another option available. I do however think offering the extended and crew cabs as an option would have opened it up to a larger audience!! And again, $38K is a **** nice Mustang!!

Mustang can't tow or haul or be used as a work truck and is not nearly as tough either.

Guess which will hold it's value better too?

Honestly, the Raptor would bury a 4x4 Tremor off road, so it has it's advantages. Plus, many "non-Ford buyers" love the Raptor, but would scoff at the Tremor.

Ok. Tell Ford to pull the FX2 & FX4 badges off & slap the Tremor stickers on. Done. The Tremor has the same equipment as the FX2/4, which have been available ONLY as extended & crew cab models for years. Ford could have just introduced this truck as a new cab option to the FX2/4 trim level, but they are playing with people's minds. This gives buyers the feeling that they are buying a "special" model of truck, when in reality, they aren't. The Raptor is a special model. The Lightning was a special model. The Tremor is a marketing ploy.
