Call it an aftershock.
Ford has revealed a new Tremor off-road package for its midsized Ranger pickup inspired by the one available on its "Godzilla" V8-powered Super Duty trucks, but much lower on the Richter scale.
The $4,920 option will be available on certain XLT and Lariat 4x4 Super Crew models starting early next year. It includes a suspension lift and high-performance mototube Fox shock absorbers, locking rear differential, underbody protection and 32-inch Continental General Grabber tires mounted on unique 17-inch wheels. The setup gives the Ranger a 1-inch-wider stance and increases ground clearance by 0.8 inch to 9.7 inches.
It also includes hoop steps, tow hooks and a dash-top six-switch auxiliary power pack, while a special body graphics package and microfiber suede-trimmed upholstery are offered as add-ons.
There aren’t any power updates, and Ford is billing it as the most off-road-capable U.S. market model because it offers a much more extreme Ranger Raptor in other markets.
However, Ford is expected to launch an all-new Ranger for 2022 that will likely include a Raptor for the U.S.
