Ford Unveils Ranger Tremor: A New Frontier in Off-Roading


Ford is expanding its formidable Ranger lineup in South Africa with the introduction of the all-new Ranger Tremor, following the recent launch of the adventure-ready Ranger Wildtrak X.

Designed for enhanced capability and confidence in conquering challenging off-road conditions, the Tremor targets both off-road enthusiasts and those who customize their vehicles for overlanding adventures.

The Ranger Tremor, based on the XLT series, shares enhanced off-road capabilities with the Wildtrak X but at a more affordable price point. It boasts the same powerful 154kW/500Nm 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine and full-time four-wheel-drive system, featuring the innovative Trail Turn Assist for tight off-road turns.

Distinctive Style and Rugged Features

Visually distinguished with a black honeycomb off-road front grille and Bolder Grey exterior details, the Ranger Tremor exudes an adventurous spirit. It features 17-inch Asphalt Black machine-faced alloy rims with 265/70 R17 all-terrain General Grabber AT3 tires and includes unique ‘Tremor’ badges and decals, setting it apart from regular models.

With rugged enhancements like a steel bash plate, underbody protection, tow hooks, and Bilstein Position-Sensitive Dampers, the Tremor offers a muscular appearance and go-anywhere capabilities. It comes in exclusive colors, including Conquer Grey, previously limited to the Ranger Raptor.

Tough and Practical Interior

The Tremor’s interior matches high-tech features with durability. Water-resistant black vinyl seats with orange Tremor logos, vinyl flooring for easy cleaning, and Precision Grey accents maintain a balance between ruggedness and comfort. The cabin includes roof-mounted auxiliary switches for 4×4 overlanding accessories and a 12-inch touchscreen display with Off-road SYNC Screen.

Off-Road Prowess and Driver Assistance

Equipped with the same suspension upgrades as the Wildtrak X, the Tremor provides a 24mm increase in ground clearance and a 30mm wider track, enhancing control in challenging driving conditions. The full-time four-wheel-drive system offers various drive modes for optimal performance on different terrains.

The Ranger Tremor introduces Pro Trailer Backup Assist with Trailer Reverse Guidance, standardizing it across selected models. This feature simplifies the process of reversing with a trailer, catering to both novices and experienced trailer handlers.

Ford’s Ranger Tremor is set to redefine off-roading experiences, combining distinctive style, off-road prowess, and practicality. With its muscular appearance and advanced features, the Tremor is poised to captivate off-road enthusiasts seeking a robust and versatile vehicle. Stay tuned for pricing details closer to the vehicle’s launch, and get ready to explore new frontiers with the Ranger Tremor.
