After we saw the spy shots of the Ranger Raptor model, we have a first look at the upcoming 2023 Ford Ranger Tremor. However, unlike the Raptor variant that offers hardcore off-road package, the Tremor model will be available with less features. Still, the upcoming truck will come with long list of features, and thanks to that, it should slot between the FX4 package and the Ranger Raptor models.
Unfortunately, the Tremor prototype is caught testing covered in heavy camouflage that disguises much of its appearance. However, we still managed to notice some changes, and the forthcoming model will adopt the shaped headlights as the Ford Maverick compact pickup.
2023 Ford Ranger Tremor First Look
As we said, the new 2023 Ford Ranger Tremor prototype has been spied testing, and is unfortunately covered in heavy camouflage. Under the wrap, we noticed some changes, and you can expect the forthcoming model to come with a new set of headlights. Moreover, the identical headlights we saw on the Ford F-150, and the recently introduced Ford Maverick compact pickup.
Interestingly, the Tremor prototype rides on the same Raptor-style wheels, which are quite similar in size and shape. The next-gen Ranger will reportedly ride on a modified version of the Ford T6 platform that underpins the current-gen Ford Bronco. It will also come with underbody skid plates, all-terrain tires, modified suspension, and with a locking differential.
What’s New Inside?
We don’t expect the 2023 Ford Ranger Tremor to significantly differ inside from the base model. Of course, buyers of this package can count on more comfortable seats, and a cabin that dominates with a large infotainment system. In case you didn’t know, the latest Ford Ranger comes standard with a new 10.1-inch screen, and is available with many other features.
Ford also offers a much larger 12-inch vertically-positioned screen on upper trims. We must mention that the same screen is also available on the F-150 pickup and Explorer SUV.
2023 Ford Ranger Tremor Engine Specs
It’s currently unclear what engines will be available on the new 2023 Ford Ranger. Many believe that Blue Oval will continue to offer the same turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder and 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine under the hood of the previous model delivers 270-horsepower and 310 lb.-ft of torque.
However, in our opinion, both these figures will tick upward on the new version. Rear-wheel drive as far as we know will be standard, while 4-wheel drive is still optional. The upcoming Ranger Raptor will use a 4-wheel drive as standard and it will also come with a new twin-turbo 3.0L EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine mated to the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Ford Ranger Tremor Release Date, Price
The new 2023 Ford Ranger models will be fully revealed later this year, while sales could start soon after. We can expect the base truck to cost around $28,000 for a rear-wheel-drive model. However, upper trims including the Tremor package will cost around $40,000.
As we mentioned, the Tremor trim slots between the FX4 and the more expensive Ranger Raptor. This model offers great off-road features including front tow hooks, underbody skid plates, all-terrain tires, and tougher suspension.
