2021 Ford Ranger Tremor gets major off-road upgradesSeptember 14, 2020
The American automaker has unveiled the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor mid-size pickup truck. It is reported to be the most off-road Ranger ever offered by Ford.
Billed as “the most factory-built off-road Ranger ever offered in the US,” the Tremor Ranger boasts a suspension lift, new front steering knuckles and 32-inch Continental General Grabber A / TX off-road tires. The all-terrain rubber wraps around the 17-inch magnetically-painted wheels mounted on the pickup truck, which gets 24.64cm ground clearance, 2.03cm more than the regular Ranger SuperCrew 4×4.
The truck’s off-road performance has been further improved by increasing the front suspension travel to 16.51 cm, while the rear suspension is now 20.57 cm.
The list of upgrades includes FOX 2.0 monotube shocks, specially tuned shocks and a steel front strut plate on the frame along with underbody skid plates. Ford also adds a rear differential lock and two rear hooks.
The 2021 Ranger Tremor gives owners the ability to choose from four driving modes using Trail Control. The traction control system has also been refined to aid acceleration and traction on gravel, and the approach, exit and lift-off angles have been improved over the base SuperCrew 4×4.
Ford will sell the 2021 Ranger Tremor with the familiar 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine delivering a healthy 270 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted through a 10-speed automatic transmission that works in conjunction with the standard 4×4 drive with electronic rear differential lock.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Ford will not equip the Bronco SUV with a V8 engine. In an interview with an official representative of the American brand, it was possible to find out why the Ford Bronco SUV cannot be bought with a V8 engine. It turns out that very serious reasons influenced the adoption of this decision.
