Ford presents the all-new F-150 Tremor. Comes with a EcoBoost engine


Ford describes this pickup as the "first-ever EcoBoost®-powered sport truck that addresses the needs of street truck enthusiasts looking for high-performance V8 power with V6 fuel economy". But this bothers me, associating fuel economy with a vehicle so large, makes no sense.

As the name indicates, it is based on the F-150 and uses the short-wheelbase, regular-cab version. The exterior has a custom-inspired FX Appearance Package with matte black accents, 20-inch black wheels, and several badges and graphics. Moving to the inside, this is the only regular-cab F-150 with a flow-through center console (MyFord Touch is standard) and bucket seats, besides Alcantara and black leather seats, red contrasting stitching and metal accents.

Powering the Tremor is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 370PS (365bhp or 272kW) @5000rpm and 569Nm of torque @2500rpm. 90% of the torque is available from 1700rpm to 5000rpm. An electronic locking rear differential is standard for both two- and four-wheel-drive versions.
