Ford F-150 Tremor

Ford expanded the 2014 F-150 lineup today, with the addition of a new F-150 Tremor version, which gives customers a model similar to the now-discontinued Lightning model. Unlike the Lightning model, this new Tremor package gets it power from two fewer cylinders and a pair of turbos.

The new Tremor edition comes only in the short-wheelbase, regular-cab F-150, giving it a sportier look. To add to its sportiness, it comes standard with the FX Appearance Package, which tosses in flat-black trimming, black badges with red lettering and body graphics. The model will sit on a set of 20-inch flat-black wheels to complete the exterior upgrades on this special pickup.

On the inside, the Tremor gets black leather seating surfaces with red perforations and red piping.

Under the hood, Ford installed a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that delivers a total of 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and a peak torque of 420 pound-feet at 2,500 rpm. The engine offers twin independent variable camshaft timing for improved performance and fuel economy. Sure, this engine is the same as any old EcoBoost-equipped F-150, but it has an extra twist in the back end that helps up the ante a little.

As standard, the Tremor edition comes with a 4.10 axle ratio, which is typically reserved for the FX4 4X4 and SVT Raptor models. Additionally, this rear end features an electronic locking differential for improved traction during takeoff. There is no mention of whether this is a 4X4 or rear-wheel drive, but we assume it is the former.

The Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado are officially on notice to pump out something to match wits with this performance pickup. To date, neither brand has plans to launch a performance model in 2014.

The new F-150 Tremor will be put on sale this fall and prices will be announced later.
