The Ford F-150 Tremor Is an Incredibly Capable Bargain

Recently, three off-road trucks were challenged to a race, and the F-150 Tremor proved its sporty capabilities by leaving competitors in the dust. But that’s not all to brag about. It’s also the least expensive off-road option in the group.

How much power does the 2023 Ford F-150 Tremor have?

The 2023 engine comes out of the gate with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 making 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. In drag racing, it’s matched against the 2023 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport with a 3.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.

The Tundra was disappointing because it had a slow-to-react transmission. It is also the heaviest truck.

Perhaps if they raced a Toyota Tundra with the i-FORCE MAX hybrid engine, the results would have changed. It generates 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque.

But the F-150 Tremor accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds, while the Silverado ZR2 and Tacoma TRD Pro are clocked at 6.1 seconds.

How much does the F-150 shakedown cost?

2023 starts at $61,110. It’s quite a lot of money, but the upgraded equipment for off-road driving and the extra power might be worth it. The standard F-150 starts at about $34,585. These are MSRPs and do not include the $1,795 destination fee.

Next up, we have the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 ZR2 at around $71,500. The destination cost is $1,895.

Save with a 2023 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport based on the SR5 model valued at $42,750. The Sport Package adds about 5,800 to the price, coming to $48,500.

But for off-road upgrades like Fox suspension dampers, locking differentials, tow hooks and skid plates, you’ll have to go for the $69,420 Tundra TRD Pro model. The destination fee is $1,795.

So while all three of these trucks have upgrades and impressive off-road power, the F-150 Tremor is the fastest and most affordable.

Aside from the twin-turbocharged engine, the engine comes with lifted suspension, a wider stance, skid plates, Quake-specific monotube shocks up front, twin-tube shocks in the rear, tow hooks and a differential lock.

The Tremor rides on 18-inch dark aluminum wheels wrapped in 33-inch all-terrain tires. It has a height of 9.1 inches off the ground. Lane Control, Trail Turn Assist, and Trail One Pedal Drive make off-road driving easy and comfortable.

If you want more power, go for the Ford F-150 Raptor, which starts at $76,775. But you can save thousands with the less expensive Tremor, and you’ll get a truck built for work and play.
