Ford Expands Maverick Lineup with Tremor Package

Following the success of the 2022 Maverick, Ford is expanding its compact truck lineup with the new 2023 Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package, the automaker announced.

“Ranger, F-150 and Super Duty customers have embraced the unique off-road capability, technology and appearance updates found across our Tremor family of trucks,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck product marketing and brand manager. “Maverick Tremor delivers on this same promise with new functions and features designed for off-roading – all while keeping the truck’s signature size, affordability, and Built Ford Tough durability and capability.”

Maverick Tremor is available for XLT and Lariat series trucks and is outfitted with functional and capable features.

Equipped with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, the compact pickup builds on the FX4 Off-Road Package with an all-wheel-drive system new to Maverick, Ford said. The system includes a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock. Five selectable drive modes allow for drivers to tailor the on-road and off-road capability of Maverick Tremor to pavement, mud, sand or snow, as well as for towing conditions.

Maverick Tremor also comes with Trail Control, which operates like cruise control for off-road driving. Customers simply select a set speed, then the truck manages throttle and braking to allow them to focus on steering through challenging conditions like mud or dirt.

New front and rear springs and shocks aid in improved off-road capability. These new shocks, together with a 1-inch increase in ride height, also contribute to a more assertive stance for the new Maverick Tremor, Ford designers said. Off-road capability is further bolstered by a heavy-duty transmission cooler and upgraded half-shafts. The compact truck also offers a maximum tow rating of 2,000 pounds and payload rating of 1,200 pounds.

The Tremor theme can be found throughout, designers said. Maverick Tremor comes with a unique grille finish, plus blacked-out Ford logos, headlamps and taillamps. The two front tow hooks get signature Tremor Orange accents. Customers can select the available Tremor Appearance Package, which includes a Carbonized Gray-painted roof and mirror caps, as well as black side graphics on the hood and lower body.

Additionally, 17-inch aluminum wheels feature a new Tremor Orange and dark gray anodized finish, and are wrapped with standard all-terrain tires. A new lower front fascia with a more aggressive approach angle and steel skid plates results in improved capability.

The design carries into the cabin, with Black Onyx seats featuring stitched Tremor logos and signature Tremor Orange accents. The center console, register vents and door pulls are updated to include the new color scheme as well.
