Default 2021 Ford Ranger Adds Off-Road Credentials with Tremor Package


The 2021 Ford Ranger's Tremor Off-Road Package Is a Step In the Raptor's Direction

The 2021 Ford Ranger will offer the Tremor package, an off-road-oriented package notable for giving the pickup bigger wheels and a lifted Fox suspension.
The Tremor package also adds skid plates, recovery hooks, a six-switch auxiliary power bank, and a locking rear differential.

The Tremor package can be had on XLT and Lariat trims (in the SuperCrew 4x4 configuration), and will be available on the 2021 Ranger beginning early next year.

Competition in the mid-size-pickup segment is fierce, and staying on top—or fighting for that position—often means boosting your truck’s off-road attributes. Ford is no stranger to this, and so the 2021 Ford Ranger can now be had with the Tremor package, a package which comes with Tremor-specific tires and a lifted Fox-tuned suspension, among other features that will allow you to go farther when the pavement ends.


The Ranger Looks to Repeat the F-150's Success

Dirty Looks: Ranger Level 1 Off-Road Package

Ranger Level 3 Off-Road Package Is No Raptor

The $4290 package is a step up from the $1295 FX4 package, until now the one that gave you the most capable Ranger off-road. It's not quite the Ranger Raptor that we won't stop talking about and hoping for, since it lacks Raptor attributes such as BFGoodrich T/A KO2 all-terrain tires or a Fox racing suspension. But the Tremor does get 32-inch Continental General Grabber A/TX all-terrain tires and Fox 2.0 monotube dampers, both of which increase ground clearance by 0.8 inch to a respectable 9.7 inches and add an inch to the Ranger Tremor's width. Front and rear suspension travel are increased for better maneuverability, as are approach (30.9 degrees) and departure (25.5 degrees) angles.

The Ranger Tremor package can be added to 2021 Ranger XLT and Lariat SuperCrew 4x4 models. Either way, it has the Ranger's standard 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, which makes 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Ranger's 7500-pound towing capacity is unchanged.

Naturally, front and underbody skid plates adorn the Ranger Tremor, along with recovery hooks at front and back. There's a rear electronically locking differential, as well as Ford's Terrain Management system with four drive modes. And for the customers who are going to add their own features to the truck such as air compressors and winches, there's a six-switch auxiliary power bank on the front dash to control any extras. The truck also gains a more aggressive grille and adds the Tremor badging on the headrests as well as both sides of the cargo box. Inside, there are suede-insert seats with the word "Tremor" embroidered on the seatbacks.

Ford Performance also offers its own accessory packages for the Ranger for those who want even more features, but if the Tremor is all you need, it will be available on the 2021 Ranger beginning early next year.

Default 2020 Roush Ranger RAPTOR

2020 Roush Ranger: This Wannabe Ford Ranger Raptor Will Set You Back a Pretty Penny

The nearly $13,000 kit includes some suspension mods, tires, wheels, and a lot of plastic bits.

Patience is a virtue when it comes to the Ford Ranger. While our friends Down Under enjoy the Ranger Raptor, we are left to make our own lemonade. Roush, however, is now getting us one step closer to the real deal, with an off-road performance package for the 2020 Ford Ranger—not.

Sadly, Roush's take on the ranger doesn’t include the diesel engine of the Australian version nor the bite of the amped-up 770-hp Shelby F-150. Instead, it offers some suspension mods, an exhaust system, off-road friendly tires, some exterior plastic bits, and perhaps more notably, a nicer cabin.

The Roush Ranger is built on the Ford Ranger Lariat 4x4, where the stock 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine rated at 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque and 10-speed automatic transmission remain. Roush adds a high-performance dual-tip cat-back exhaust system with stainless steel tips for more baritone, but no real performance gains are noted by the tuner.

The highlights of the truck are tucked under the wheel wells. The 2020 Roush Ranger is outfitted with a Roush/Fox 2.0 performance suspension system, matched with General Tire 32-inch Grabber A/TX tires and satin black 18-inch Roush wheels.

Exterior visual cue includes a Roush front grille with dual LED lights, custom red tow hooks, fender vent badges, and Roush “R” puddle lamps. Customers also can choose among seven exterior colors and three exterior graphic packages for the Roush Ranger. Exterior options include a Roush chase rack with dual ten-inch light bars, retractable aluminum bed cover with optional bed cargo manager, and an off-road utility kit.

It's inside that the Roush shines, with the Ranger offering premium leather seats with quilted stitching, embroidered headrests, and floor liners by WeatherTech. An optional center console and rear seat vault provide additional storage space for valuable belongings.

In total, the 2020 Roush Ranger package adds $12,750 above the factory MSRP of a Lariat 4x4, which has a starting price of $38,675, putting this mid-size truck over the $50,000 mark. That is a high enough price tag to make some people research aftermarket suspension kits to do on their own. Sure, you'd miss out on the seats, but that's probably ok.

If you aren't already scratching your head, this will do it for ya: Ford Performance recently announced a three-level dealer-installed off-road package for 2019-2020 Ford Rangers. These include Fox 2.0 suspension and off-road leveling kit, BFGoodrich KO2 265/70 tires, and 17-in Dyno Gray wheels. Level 2 even bumps the engine output to 315 hp and 370 pound-feet of torque.

Level 3 offers everything included in the first two with an additional 40-inch LED light bar, Ford Performance chase rack, winch-capable front bumper, sport exhaust, for only $8,995 (before MSRP and installation). According to Ford Performance, Level 1 and 2 can be ordered now, but Level 3 won’t be available to order until summer 2021.

Why anyone would drop more coin on the Roush sure beats me, but if you're interested, the 2020 Roush Ranger is available right now and it comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty.
