Ford Ranger Tremor Edition Spied On The Road

New spy shots capture a camouflaged Ford Ranger on the Michigan highway. Our spies suspect it could be a rugged Tremor model similar to what’s available on the Super Duty.

The Ranger has camouflage on the nose and bed but leaves the cabin exposed. What the company is hiding is unclear, however. The body panels do not look any different from the current version of the truck.

This Ranger appears to have a slight suspension. It also has all-terrain tires and metal running boards. There is also a distinct resemblance between the design of the wheels and what the Ranger Raptor wears.

From what’s visible here, it looks like Ford intends to bundle some rugged gear together to create a somewhat open-air Ranger that’s not as hardcore as something like the Raptor.

This vehicle doesn’t look as rugged as the Tremor version of the F-250 or F-350. They have a suspension lift, Dana limited-slip front differential, on-the-fly locking rear differential, and a creep mode that operates in low 4×4.

It doesn’t make sense for Ford to make big investments in the Ranger, as the next-gen truck is currently in development. There are already rumors of what to expect. There would be a plug-in hybrid powertrain using a turbocharged 2.3-liter engine and an electric motor producing 362 horsepower (270 kilowatts) and 502 pound-feet (680 Newton-meters) of torque.

The next Ranger would also be available with dual diesel engines in Australia and Europe, but not in the United States. Customers could choose a 2.0-liter twin-turbo engine producing 210 hp (157 kW) and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 250 hp.

There’s even a rumor that the Americans have a Ranger with the gasoline-powered 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6. Assuming this is the same setting as the F-150 version, that would give the smaller truck 325 hp (242 kW) and 400 lb-ft (524 Nm) of torque.
