If you are looking for a fantastic full-size truck that is designed to perfectly meet the needs of an outdoor lifestyle, then Ford has you covered with not just one but two amazing options. While a lot of people focus on the incredible performance of the F-150 Raptor, that choice can come with much more than what many drivers really need. The 2022 Ford F-150 Tremor is the perfect choice if you want impressive off-road performance and capability without going quite as far as what the Raptor and its hefty price tag has to offer; we love the Raptor, but it is not for everyone.
With the F-150 Tremor, you get a selection of excellent interior features and options, plus a powerful engine, with off-road capability inspired by the Raptor’s legendary performance at a significantly lower price tag. The Tremor features a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that delivers 400 hp and plenty of torque so that you can go anywhere and conquer whatever any trail throws at you. This is combined with off-road shocks that give you plenty of maneuverability and articulation, making this pickup perfect for navigating rough terrain and obstacles. Plus, the 18-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch all-terrain tires look fantastic and boost ground clearance with a wide stance to keep you in control at all times.
Of course, as a Ford F-150, the Tremor has all of the remarkable power and performance that you would expect, including 10,900 lbs of towing capacity and 1,885 lbs of maximum payload capacity. Even out on the trail, you can enjoy everything modern technology has to offer, including available features like a 12-inch driver productivity screen, a 12-inch infotainment display, and a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system. Combine all of this with available unique Tremor leather-trimmed heated seats, and you have an amazing off-road machine that is built for work, play, and everything in between.
No matter what you plan on using your truck for, the engine is always one of the first things you should look at and focus on, to see what kind of performance it really delivers. Since the Tremor is a particular trim of the 2022 Ford F-150, your engine options are a bit more limited than when looking at everything the model has to offer. That being said, the engine packed into the F-150 Tremor is fantastic and delivers all the power you need for getting around town, taking a long trip, or exploring the outdoors on the weekend.
With the Ford F-150 Tremor, you get a powerful 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, which provides you with 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. That is a massive amount of torque and makes this one of the most impressive engines you will find in a full-size truck. Plus, it comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that is quick to respond to your needs behind the wheel. This is a monster of a powertrain and demonstrates just how well Ford understands the needs of drivers who want powerful trucks and who need to be able to rely on that muscle when going off-road. The unique dual-outlet exhaust on the Tremor helps with all of this power and allows for double the exhaust to be forced out by the engine, boosting performance.
A class IV trailer hitch is standard on the F-150 Tremor, but you can choose an available Trailer Tow package and Tow Technology package to boost the towing capabilities of this truck. When properly equipped, the F-150 Tremor can handle up to 10,900 lbs of maximum towing, which is perfect if you have a boat you need to be able to pull or like to use a trailer for camping or other long road trips. No matter what you want from your Ford F-150, the Tremor is a fantastic option that delivers plenty of power and responsive performance and gives you the ability to handle both weekdays and weekends alike.
One of the most important aspects of the design and engineering of the 2022 Ford F-150 Tremor is how well it can handle going off-road. While many other companies might have one option for an off-road truck, and some do not even have that, Ford delivers two fantastic choices if you want an F-150 that is ready to hit the trail straight from the factory. If you need the most capable and cutting-edge off-road option, then there is no denying that the F-150 Raptor is an unbeatable truck that can dominate anything the wilderness throws at you. Considering the fairly high price tag on the Raptor, however, the Tremor is an amazing choice if you do not need everything the Raptor delivers but still want a great off-road truck at a more affordable cost.
The Tremor comes with Four-Wheel Drive, as you would expect, which ensures you remain in control no matter how rough the road gets. It has an independent front suspension, plus unique off-road shocks with the Tremor logo on the rear ones, which have been designed for excellent articulation and maneuverability while going off-road. A front axle with TORSEN differential is available if you want to take your off-road performance to the next level, and while you get trailer sway control standard, you can choose an integrated trailer brake controller to make towing easier and more precise.
In terms of impressive technology for going off-road, every Tremor model features selectable drive modes to improve traction and control depending on road conditions. You get Normal, Eco, and Sport modes for typical driving, along with Deep Snow/Sand, Mud/Rut, and Rock Crawl modes that are perfect for hitting the trail and the kinds of obstacles and terrain you will encounter. To really take your off-road experience to the next level, you can choose an available Trail Control system, which is like cruise control for going off-road. It features Trail 1-Pedal Drive functionality so you can focus on navigating challenging terrain, plus Trail Turn Assist that can decrease the turning radius of the truck for tight spaces.
It is easy to get so wrapped up in checking out the performance and capability of a truck that you overlook some of the other features it has to offer. Since you are going to spend most of your time with your pickup in it and driving, it is always a good idea to pay attention to the kinds of technology it offers. These things might seem minor at first, but after years of use, the added functionality, comfort, and ease of use that they can provide are substantial. The F-150 Tremor has fantastic starting features when it comes to technology, plus numerous available options if you want to take your driving experience even further.
You get automatic on/off headlamps with the Tremor, along with a power lock tailgate and automatic high-beam headlamps. Available features include a remote tailgate release, plus a power tailgate that is easier to open and close for loading and unloading. You can also choose an available Pro Power Onboard system, which features a 2 kW power output, so you can use the F-150 Tremor as a portable generator. This is a fantastic option if you like to be able to use small appliances while camping or after a day on the trail before you head home.
Inside the Tremor, you will find single-zone air conditioning with cruise control, an 8-inch infotainment display, and a 4-inch productivity screen for you as the driver. Available features take the Tremor to the next level and include dual-zone automatic temperature control, an Intelligent Access system with push button start, and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. You can also get a 12-inch infotainment display, plus a 12-inch productivity screen and an advanced Bang & Olufsen Unleashed 18-speaker sound system. Standard advanced safety technology includes a Pre-Collision Assist system with Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane-Keeping system, with available Active Park Assist 2.0 to help make marking easier.
