Even the 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickup trucks are just working machines anymore. They come in all kinds of versions, in different trim levels, a lot of customization options etc. Just right after we used on luxurious versions, it’s time to see something that is all about driving experience. This year’s update brings a lot of novelties to Super Duty models and one of them is called the Tremor. The 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor is an optional package, which turns this truck into a serious off-road machine, thanks to numerous mechanical upgrades. According to the Blue Oval company, this is the most off-road Super Duty truck we’ve ever seen. Given the list of features, this sounds logical.
2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor Specs
It’s not the first time that Ford offers a package called Tremor. While this name was in the past reserved for some cosmetical upgrades, this one is all about mechanics, though there are definitely some notable visual details, starting from huge 35-inch off-road tires. Among numerous mechanical upgrades, one of the first things that come to mind is that the front end gets a 2-inch lift, while the bumper also gets a new design, as well as a new air-dam. All this ensures notably higher ground clearance, which in this case all-away up to 10.8 inches. Another interesting thing that should be mentioned is the segment-leading water fording of 33 inches. Due to higher ground clearance and new bumpers, the 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor also features a pretty amazing approach and departure angles, which go around 31.65 degrees and 24.51 degrees, respectively.
Of course, an off-roader isn’t a genuine off-roader with a lockin differential. This package is pretty strong in this field, as it comes with a Dana limited-slip differential at the front and a locking differential with electronic shift-on-the-fly engagement at the back. Naturally, there are also all kinds of underbody protection, including skid plates, axle tubes and similar things. The Trail Control that comes directly from the Raptor is also on the list of standard features.
2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor Availability
This is an optional package, not a trim level. Therefore, it comes as an upgrade of already existing models and a good thing to know is that you can get in in all versions except the most basic and most luxurious. The Tremor package is available with XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels.
2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor Engines
Considering that it comes as an optional package, you can get these mechanical upgrades with both engines. The 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor comes with both new 7.3-liter V8 and the upgraded 6.7-liter turbodiesel.
When it comes to a new gasoline engine, it replaces the good-old 6.2-liter unit and brings more power. A max output goes up to 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Also, the engine comes paired with a new 10-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission.
When it comes to a well-known Power Stroke turbodiesel, it gets a notable power boost with the this-year update. A max output now goes up to 475 horsepower and an impressive 1.050 pound-feet of torque. This engine also comes with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Other than a new 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor package, the this-year update also brings a couple of notable styling changes. There is a new grille, new headlights, as well as a couple of revisions on the rear end. A couple of changes can be found inside the truck as well.
We are still waiting for the price list of the 2020 Ford Super Duty models. Details should be known in soon.
