OMGHi2U Ford Tremor, the new lightning?

Cliffs: regular cab with ecoboost and choice of 2 or 4wd.

Quote:
Like most quakes, the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor caught us by surprise. We weren't expecting Ford to offer up another version of its best-seller so soon before the truck's full redesign, but that's exactly what the company is doing.

While Ford calls the Tremor a "performance truck," the new pickup doesn't play on the same level as the SVT Raptor does on dirt, or even the long-gone SVT Lightning did on pavement. Think of it as a parts bin sport truck that probably does a better job looking the part than acting it. The Tremor utilizes the same twin-turbo, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 available across the F-150 lineup, producing 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, but matches it with a 4.10 rear axle the shortest final drive ratio you can get in an F-150 for the strongest possible acceleration.

The Tremor does do a decent job looking the part. Available only in short-wheelbase, regular cab configuration with your choice of two- or four-wheel drive, it struts around wearing the F-150's FX Appearance Package, flat black accents, 20-inch black wheels, HID headlights and a special exterior graphics package. The Tremor is the only regular cab F-150 with a flow-through center console, which means it also gets a floor-mounted shifter and bucket seats that are covered in black leather with red piping. Some brushed metal accents and steering wheel with red stitching round out the interior upgrades.

Ford has yet to release pricing for the 2014 F-150 Tremor, but you can read the company's official line on its latest model below.

A floor mounted shifter. I'm guessing that doesn't mean a clutch comes with that.

No suspension work at all, it aint no Lightning. Its basically an engine and decor package. The F150 is the next mustang, with at least 25 models....

Almost what I was thinking. The lightning looked different from other pickups. I couldn't tell what had changed.

I'm pretty sure ford hasn't offered a manual behind a v8 since the 90's.

???? umm.. were you looking under just a regular mustang? The gts and 500's are MT. You can get a mt with a truck, you just have to special order it.

Not for the one being discussed.

I don't think the Raptor can be ordered with a manual, either.

"All Raptor models will have a 6-speed automatic transmission, selectable 4WD, and rear E-Locker that stays engaged at high-speeds."

Since this is a thread about trucks, I assumed it was already a given.

Not with any half ton. And Ram only offers a manual on the low-output Cummins as far as I know. For good reason, manual trucks suck ass- long clutch travel, long shifter throws and with modern autos there is no efficiency gain either.
