Almost a Raptor? The 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor is An Appetizer for What's to Come

Earlier this year when Ford debuted its all new 2021 F-150, the enthusiast crowd naturally saved most its excitement for the eventual third generation F-150 Raptor which will of course be based on the new pickup platform.

And while Ford has thus far kept the next gen Raptor under wraps, they’ve just provided us with a little appetizer in the form of the 2021 F-150 Tremor.

Whether you want to consider it a “Raptor Lite” or just a an F-150 that's been factory outfitted for better off-road performance, the Tremor package has been engineered to bring a balance of work truck capability and all-terrain excitement.

It also gets an optional transfer case based on the one from the Raptor a front bash plate and running boards designed for off-road use. It also brings some trick electronics to the table, with multiple drive modes, hill descent control and a new “One Pedal” trail system which modulates throttle and gas on its own.
