Upgrade creates the most off-road-ready factory-built Ranger ever offered in the US.
Touted as the most off-road-capable factory-built Ranger ever offered in the US, the Ranger Tremor features a lifted suspension with off-road tuned FOX 2.0 monotube dampers and rear piggyback reservoirs, specially tuned front coilover and rear leaf springs, 32-inch Continental General Grabber all-terrain tyres and six-switch auxiliary power pack to manage accessories including winches, light bars and air compressors.
“Tremor gives Ranger customers a new level of off-road confidence and fun,” said Chad Callander, 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 boosts the Ranger’s off-road metrics, including a 30.9-degree approach angle, up 2.2 degrees from the base SuperCrew 4×4, a 25.5-degree departure angle, which is up 0.1 degrees and a 24.2-degree breakover angle, up 2.7 degrees.
Compared to the base Ranger, front suspension travel increases to 6.5 inches. Rear suspension travel increases to 8.1 inches. Tremor’s traction control system is recalibrated for improved acceleration and traction in gravel.
Ranger Tremor comes with two new recovery hooks in the rear, in addition to the two up front. It takes a wider profile thanks to the Tremor-specific General Grabber all-terrain tyres, wheels and wider wheel lip moldings.
Apart from its improved off-road capability, Tremor’s 1,430-pound maximum payload and available 7,500-pound maximum towing capacity lets customers haul bikes, boats, campers and other adventure gear.
Tremor adds new styling features inside and out. Apart from the special badging comes on both sides of the cargo box, and an optional bonnet and body graphics package, the interior gets seats with Miko suede inserts and “Tremor” stitched into the seatbacks, as well as black accents.
