2020 F-Series Super Duty Tremor Package: Business Casual, Off-Road Rock Crusher
Many truck owners use their vehicles for a variety of jobs, but most trucks leave the showroom floor with only one intended use (which is usually work related). Enter the new, off-road Tremor package from Ford. The new package turns the 2020 F-Series Super Duty truck into an off-road machine with the touch of a button and without losing the payload capacity and towing abilities Super Duty owners have come to expect. It combines the weekday work truck duties with fun, weekend adventure off-road.
Technologically speaking, the Super Duty gets selectable drive modes that incorporates Trail Control, plus a special rock-crawl mode. The hard parts were upgraded, too. Some of the off-road upgrades that come with the Tremor package include 35-inch all-terrain tires (the largest stock tires fitted to a heavy-duty pickup), a 2-inch front-end lift and a shorter air dam. These upgrades create 10.8 inches of ground clearance and best-in class water fording at 33 inches, which leads to the best approach and departure angle of any Super Duty ever, measuring in at 31.65 degrees and 24.52 degrees, respectively.
Additional hard part aspects of the Tremor package consist of off-road improvements like progressive rate springs to balance heavy duty towing while controlling body motion over uneven roads beyond the pavement. Custom 1.7-inch piston twin-tube dampers soften severe impacts on the trails and potholes on the streets. Plus, it uses a locking rear differential with electronic shift-on-the-fly engagement and a Dana limited slip front differential. A number of other off-road parts were added to the Tremor as well, including off-road running boards, extended-axle vent tubes and the stout skid plates found on FX4 models.
The Tremor option will be available for a number of 2020 F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks with either the gasoline 7.3L V8 or the third-gen 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine. To get the Tremor, you'll need to get a 4x4 single-rear-wheel SuperCrew truck with a 6.75-foot box, and if you want it on an F-250, it'll need to have the high capacity trailer tow package. The Tremor Off-Road Package launches later this year at your local Ford dealer.
