While we’re still sad that Ford hasn’t brought the Ranger Raptor to the United States, Ford has just unveiled the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor, which is a more off-road ready version. The Ranger Tremor is even more capable than the FX4 Off-Road Package, which means that it’s “the most off-road-capable factory-built Ranger ever offered in the U.S.”
The Tremor Off-Road Package adds a lifted suspension, redesigned front knuckles and 32-inch Continental General Grabber A/TX all-terrain tires with 17-inch Magnetic-painted wheels that combine to deliver 9.7 inches of ground clearance – 0.8 inches more than the base Ranger SuperCrew 4×4. The suspension has also been upgraded with FOX 2.0 monotube dampers with rear piggyback reservoirs and hydraulic rebound stops, specially tuned shocks and tweaked front and rear springs.
Compared to base Ranger, front suspension travel increases to 6.5 inches. Rear suspension travel increases to 8.1 inches.
The 2021 Ranger Tremor also gets a frame-mounted steel front bash plate and underbody skid plates, rear locking differential, Terrain Management System with four drive modes and Trail Control. The Tremor’s traction control system has also been recalibrated for improved acceleration and traction in gravel.
The Ranger Tremor also has a six-switch auxiliary power bank mounted to the dash with rated loads of 25 amps, 15 amps and 10 amps, plus three switches at 5 amps to control accessories like winches, lights and air compressors.
Under the hood the Ranger Tremor is powered by the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It also comes standard with 4×4 and an electronic locking rear differential.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is available on mid XLT and high Lariat series 2021 Ranger trucks with SuperCrew 4×4 configuration. The package costs $4,290. Production will begin early next year.
