Ford Adds Tremor Off-Road Package to Ranger Pickup

Shocks, tires, lift highlight Ranger Tremor off road pack

  • More ground clearance, bigger tires

  • Ranger gets skid plates and switches to make off-road life easier


Ford wants the latest version of its smallest pickup to have you shaking in your boots, but not on the trail. It’s the Ford Ranger Tremor, a new package of off-road goodies making it the most off-road ready factory ranger yet. If you don’t know about the Ranger Raptor.

Since the Ranger Raptor’s not offered here, and probably won’t be, the Tremor Off-Road Package looks to be a pretty good consolation gift. It starts with a new lifted and longer-travel suspension, giving 6.5-inches of travel in the front and 8.1 in the rear. Including new front knuckles, the Tremor offers 9.7-inches of ground clearance, about an inch more than base SuperCrew 4×4.

Managing that taller suspension are Fox 2.0 monotube dampers with remote reservoirs on the rear and hydraulic rebound stops. Ford says it means comfort on-road and control off of it. The roll bars are less stiff to stop you getting bounced around as much on the trail.

Approach, departures, and breakover angles are only slightly changed, but a frame-mounted bash plate up front and underside skid plates protect the dirty bits. 32-inch General Grabber A/TX tires on 17-inch wheels deliver the grip and the Terrain Management System makes the best of it.

While it’s designed for off-road, it doesn’t sacrifice towing and payload. Max tow is 7,500 lbs and 1,430 lbs of payload capacity are available. Six new switches allow controls of features like winches, compressors, and other add-on electrical gear. Production starts early next year, and the package will run $5,250 on XLT and Lariat trucks with SuperCrew and 4×4.
