Ford Maverick Is Off-Road Ready
2023 Maverick Tremor
Taking On the Road Less Travelled
Ford is expanding its highly successful Maverick compact pickup truck lineup to include the Maverick Tremor. It's a highly upgraded off-road package that will be available on the XLT and Lariat models starting this fall to make them much more serviceable off-road. The price of the Maverick starts at $22,470. The Tremor package adds $2,995 for a number of new technologies. The additions include a new, all-wheel-drive system, special front and rear springs and dampers, a one-inch lift and Trail Control.
The XLT and Lariat models have turbocharged 2.0-liter inline, four-cylinder engines. The Tremor package provides 5 driving modes depending on the type of terrain or if the driver is towing. The Tremor can haul a 1200-pound payload or pull 2000 pounds. The new, all-wheel-drive system with a twin-clutch rear-drive locking differential sends nearly all of the rear axle torque to the back wheels for enhanced off-roading. The Trail Control system enables the truck to manage the brakes and the throttle at a speed set by the driver, allowing the driver to focus on the difficult terrain that they're driving through. The Tremor package can be ordered in September. It appears to enable a lot of new possibilities for the Maverick.
