Ford Super Duty drivers are using their F-Series trucks for more than just work. With remarkable towing power and payload capability, Super Duty trucks are being used for plenty of off-road adventures. To further enhance all that the Super Duty has to offer Ford is introducing an all-new Tremor Off-Road package. Ford Super Duty trucks equipped with Tremor will push the boundaries of off-road capability with new hardware and tech to handle rough terrain, providing greater towing and payload than Ram Power Wagon.
Tremor off-road upgrades start with a set of aggressive 35-inch-diameter Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac maximum-traction tires – the largest diameter tires available on a heavy-duty pickup – mounted on a set of unique 18-inch matte-finished black wheels. These tires, combined with a 2-inch front-end lift and shorter air dam, result in an impressive 10.8 inches of ground clearance, best-in-class water fording of 33 inches, and the best approach and departure angles of any Super Duty ever.
Suspension upgrades include progressive-rate springs to balance heavy-duty towing performance needs while also controlling body motion on rocky trails. The rear stabilizer bar is tuned for a lower spring rate so passengers experience less turbulence when traveling over rough terrain. Also in place are custom 1.7-inch piston twin-tube dampers that work to control body motion. These massive shocks feature substantial oil volume that serves to keep internal temperatures low, while the large cross-section works to improve responsiveness.
The new Tremor package includes additional hardware such as off-road running boards that tuck up next to the body for damage control, extended-axle vent tubes and the same beefy skid plates as fitted to FX4 models. New Ford F-Series Tremor trucks will feature selectable drive modes, which allow customers to choose the setting best suited to driving conditions. These include normal for around-town use, tow/haul for optimized performance under load, eco for enhanced fuel economy, slippery for icy conditions, and deep snow/sand for low-traction conditions. A new rock-crawl mode will also be introduced with this package which operates in 4×4 low and enables the standard TorqShift® 10-speed automatic transmission.
The new Tremor Off-Road Package will be available on a variety of trim levels on 2020 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks with either all-new 7.3-liter gas V8 or third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel engines. Our Ford Dealership near Dallas is anticipating delivery of new 2020 Super Duty trucks later this year and we are happy to answer any of your questions about this exciting new breed of truck.
