Ford F-150 Tremor: First EcoBoost engine sport truck

Ford has introduced the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, the company’s first sport truck with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. The Tremor sports a shorter wheelbase and will be available this fall in two- and four-wheel-drive versions. The all-new Tremor features FX Appearance Package – stealthy, flat-black accents that include unique 20-inch flat-black wheels, stylized bodyside graphics and black badges with red lettering – and a launch-optimized 4.10 rear axle, the shortest final drive ratio offered in an EcoBoost F-150.

The EcoBoost engine generates 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm on regular fuel and produces 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,500 rpm (Ford says you get V-8 power on a V-6 engine and that doesn’t seem very farfetched). The Tremor is the only regular-cab F-150 with a flow-through center console and bucket seats. The interior is highlighted with black leather seats with red piping, brushed-metal accents and a red-stitched steering wheel.

“The new Tremor gives F-150 customers yet another option to drive a highly capable, distinctive performance truck with features typically found only in the aftermarket,” said Brian Bell, F-150 product marketing manager. “Plus, the Built Ford Tough EcoBoost engine is available for the first time in a short-wheelbase F-150.”

The Tremor offers typical Ford connectivity with MyFord Touch powered by SYNC; the physical interface for MyFord Touch was designed to accommodate truck users who may be wearing work gloves by providing easy access to climate controls and audio presets.
