New 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor Combines 365HP V6 Turbo with Short-Wheelbase Body

Ford is reviving a name from the past for its all-new 2014 F-150 Tremor that introduces the Taurus SHO’s more powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 into the pickup truck’s range. The “Tremor” moniker was used in a 1998 Explorer Concept SUV fitted with a V8 engine and made its appearance on a special edition version of the Ranger truck in the 2000s.

On the F-150, Tremor translates into a sportier edition of Ford’s highly-popular truck series highlighted by the use of the 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. (567Nm) of torque at 2,500 rpm, on the regular two-door cab model with the short-wheelbase.

“The new Tremor gives F-150 customers yet another option to drive a highly capable, distinctive performance truck with features typically found only in the aftermarket,” said Brian Bell, F-150 product marketing manager. “Plus, the Built Ford Tough EcoBoost engine is available for the first time in a short-wheelbase F-150.”

Offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions, the Tremor sports a launch-optimized 4.10 rear axle, which Ford says is the shortest final drive ratio offered in an EcoBoost F-150. It also gains an electronic locking rear differential, plus the FX Appearance Package combined with special badging and decals, a floor shifter, HID headlamps and standard SYNC with MyFord Touch connectivity system.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch later this year.
