2020 Super Duty Tremor



https://youtu.be/f-7XFxjKtN0

The last time when Ford slapped on the “Tremor” badge on a truck was for the 2014 model year when the previous-generation F-150 got a somewhat sporty version with miscellaneous tweaks inside and out. The Blue Oval is bringing the moniker back, but it’s taking a different approach as now Tremor serves as an optional off-road package for the F-250 and F-350.

Trying to live up to the “Built Ford Tough” ethos, Ford has created what it refers to as the “most capable off-road Super Duty ever.” Available as a pack for the XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims of the two workhorses, Tremor comes with 35-inch “maximum-traction” all-terrain tires for better off-road chops. These are the “largest tires fitted to a heavy-duty pickup” and come together with bespoke 18-inch wheels finished in matte black.

Compared to a non-Tremor F-250 or F-350, the trucks boast a 2-inch front-end lift as well as a shorter air dam to enable a generous ground clearance of 10.8 inches (27.4 centimeters). A Super Duty Tremor also boasts a segment-leading water fording of 33 in (83.82 cm) and the best approach and departure angles (31.65 degrees and 24.51 degrees, respectively) ever offered on a Super Duty model.

Customers will be able to order the pack with either the completely new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine or the torquetastic third-gen 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel – both of which are hooked up to a ten-speed automatic heavy-duty transmission. The Tremor package will also bundle other niceties like a Dana limited-slip differential at the front and a locking differential with electronic shift-on-the-fly engagement at the back.

Ford mentions a Super Duty equipped with the Tremor package features running boards that tuck up next to the body to avoid damages, along with FX4-sourced skid plates and extended-axle vent tubes. Selectable drive modes are also in the offing, including a new rock-crawl mode designed to work in 4x4 low. The F-150 Raptor’s Trail Control also seen in the Ranger is making its debut on a Super Duty model and works basically like an off-road cruise control system.

Ford will have the Tremor package available later this year together with the 2020 Super Duty lineup.

Love the big gas option. 35" wheels is impressive. On that massive truck tho, they seem more like 32". What a fun off road beast and nice option from a desert flying Raptor.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

Thinking about the tuning upgrades that are no doubt in the works for the 7.3L. I don't think specs are out yet, but HP is around 460 and Tq nearly 500. So I would imagine that a cam, chip and headers will net something close to 600 ftlbs. HP is anyone's guess, but a function of cam mostly. 550 should be quite easy. Not too bad. And I bet it sounds pretty good.

LOL, don't forget big.


Filling the fuel tank would feel like paying a monthly car payment....

Tank size is irrelevant. Youstill pay the same amount per gallon, and do not need to fill the tank. Truckshave large fuel tanks for convenience.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

Local gas is as low as $2.59 for me during holiday week. A 30 gal tank of gas still does not scare me.

You are lucky, guys. Here in Spain 1 galon of gasoline cost 6,10$ !





That is why I will go from my old 2014 Explorer to a compact Mercedes-Benz A-Class.... and with the 1.3 lt engine.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

Remember the rumored FX4 Max off-road package? It eventually became the new "Tremor".
Quote:
Ford Authority learned that the company originally intended to call the variant FX4 Max. Execs refused to say why they changed their minds, but Tremor was a much better, more evocative choice in our opinion.
