European Current-Gen Truck: The Tremor.
Consumers living in North America will be able to obtain the most recent-gen of Ford Ranger finally. It is likely that a robust Tremor package might emerge at some time in the future – this was claimed, along with its intended availability for North Americans, on the Ford Manufacturer Advisory Service webpage, among the current innovations for 2024. Alas, however, the Tremor edition won’t be obtainable in the 2024 model year.
A proclamation came from a Ford spokesman, who declared to Motor1.com via email that the statement was an inaccuracy and there were no intentions of releasing a Tremor in 2024. Of course, this statement does not preclude the option of making the off-road package available after 2025; taking into account the facts that the European markets already had the Ranger Tremor variant which emerged last March. It features stiffer suspension and chassis segments holding burly off-road tires below fancy wider guards with gray trims as well as supplying winch packs, extra lighting, and tow bars.
The Ford website displays the Tremor as a Crew Cab, appearing slightly higher than an ordinary Ranger 4×4. Potentially being a slip-up in the listing, it is possible that this information may not be correct, nevertheless, a slight increase in height coincides with the Euro-spec Ranger Tremor. This correlates with the formerly available Ranger Tremor from model year 2021, as it rode nearly an inch greater than its sister vehicles.
Across Europe, the Ford Tremor is outfitted with a 2.0-liter diesel motor; naturally, for other regions including North America, the model would presumably carry the Twin-Turbocharged EcoBoost V6 – capable of providing 315 horsepower and a noteworthy 400 pound-feet in torque – wedging itself nicely into place between the standard Ranger (delivering 270 horsepower from a 4-cylinder) and the powerful Ranger Raptor boasting its new 3.0L EcoBoost engine producing an impressive 405 horses.
It is worth underscoring that we could be assuming quite a bit. Nothing has been definitively stated regarding the chance of US purchasers acquiring a Ranger Tremor. Yet, taking into account an authoritative mention on Ford’s website alongside the fact it exists in other countries, likely implies it will end up being offered at some point in the future.
