Ford revealed the Tremor Off-Road Package for the 2021 Ranger.
“Tremor gives Ranger customers a new level of off-road confidence and fun,” said Joe Comacchio, Ford Ranger Marketing Manager. “With increased ground clearance, off-road tuned suspension and aggressive Continental General Grabber tires, Tremor elevates Ranger’s off-roading capability even further while keeping the unique advantages that come with a cargo box for hauling gear anywhere.”
The Tremor Package comes with the 2.3-litre EcoBoost® engine with 270 horsepower and gas torque of 310 lb.-ft., paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission and standard 4×4 with electronic locking rear differential.
It has a lifted suspension, redesigned front knuckles and 32-inch Continental General Grabber A/TX all-terrain tires on new 17-inch Magnetic-painted wheels.
FOX 2.0 monotube dampers with remote rear reservoirs and hydraulic rebound stops offer control over severe terrain. Anti-roll bar stiffness was reduced to minimize disruption over rough terrain and improve comfort off-road.
The Ranger’s off-road metrics include a 30.9-degree approach angle, a 25.5-degree departure angle, which is up 0.1 degrees and a 24.2-degree breakover angle.
It has approximately 650 kg (1,430 lb) maximum payload and approximately 3,402 kg (7,500 lb) maximum towing capacity. Todd Eckert, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager, added, “With its added off-road capability combined with the six-switch auxiliary bank and close to 200 Ranger-specific dealer-installed available accessories, Ranger Tremor is a very capable overlanding rig.”
Ranger Tremor includes a frame-mounted steel front bash plate and underbody skid plates, rear locking differential, Terrain Management System with four distinct drive modes and Trail Control.
The grille has a Magnetic-painted surround with black bars running across the middle and red nostril accents in the corners. Special badging comes on both sides of the cargo box, and an optional hood and body graphics package can be added. The interior features seats with Miko suede inserts and “Tremor” stitched into the seatbacks, as well as black accents.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is available on mid XLT and high Lariat series 2021 Ranger trucks with SuperCrew 4×4 configuration.
