2021 Ford Ranger Tremor Arrives With Extra Off-Road Capability
The Ranger Tremor is suspended by a set of Fox 2.0 monotube shocks that come with external reservoirs for better cooling and a specially tuned set of front coil springs and rear leaf springs. The Tremor rides on a set of 17-inch black wheels wrapped in 32-inch-tall Continental General Grabber all-terrain tires. Put this whole kit together and the Ranger Tremor has 9.7 inches of ground clearance. It’s still a far cry from the Jeep Gladiator, which offers 10.0 inches of ground clearance even on its base trim.
That said, the Ranger Tremor offers an additional 6.5 inches of additional suspension travel up front and an additional 8.1 inches of rear wiggle room compared to its base counterpart. The approach and departure angles measure 30.9 and 25.5 degrees respectively. For reference, a basic gladiator has an approach angle of 40.8 degrees and a departure angle of 25.0 degrees.
Ford notes that the Tremor Kit maintains the Ranger’s payload and tow count of 1,430 and 7,500 pounds. The Ranger Tremor also benefits from six auxiliary switches in the cabin that can be connected to accessories such as exterior lights, an air compressor or a winch.
There are also some Tremor-specific styling cues: a blacked-out version of the Ranger Lariat’s grille with red accents and Tremor decals on the three-quarter rear panels (Tremor is also sewn onto the seats). Additionally, Tremor buyers can opt for a set of decals that add extra panache to the sills and hood of the truck.
The $ 4,290 Tremor Package is available on the 2021 Ranger XLT and Lariat versions.
