2014 Ford F-150 Tremor: EcoBoost Goes Short-Bed, Short-Cab

June 27, 2013

The latest addition to the Ford F-150 lineup is the Tremor, a new sport truck coming in the 2014 model year.

Ford showed off the new truck today in Dearborn, one of the first models confirmed for the 2014 F-150 lineup.

The name Tremor's been applied to Ford trucks and SUVs in the past. In the 1990s, the Tremor was an Explorer-based concept sport-utility vehicle. Then, during the 2000s, the Ford Ranger spun off a Tremor edition, with a high-powered 485-watt audio system.

The 2014 F-150 Tremor isn't related to either of those--and it's no Lightning successor either, despite the presence of Ford's 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. The Lightning was a limited-run truck sold under the old SVT banner, while this truck is more akin to the Explorer Sport or Mustang GT, with turbo-six power substituting for the traditional V-8.

The first "sport" truck to get the powertrain, according to Ford, the Tremor is configured with the F-150's regular-cab body style, with a 126-inch wheelbase and the shorter pickup bed. Both rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered. The Tremor weighs in at about 5,000 pounds, and comes with a 4.10 rear axle and an electronically controlled locking rear differential, for maximum power extraction from the EcoBoost V-6, Ford says.

To set it apart from other F-150 pickup trucks, the Tremor gets its own badging and wheels, along with the FX appearance package, an interior with a flow-through console and console-mounted shifter, and black leather bucket seats with Alcantara inserts and red stitching. Other features include standard HID headlamps, 20-inch black-finish wheels, and MyFord Touch and SYNC.

Pricing hasn't been released. The Tremor edition goes on sale later this year.
