We are getting a treat with the upcoming 2023 Ford F-250 Tremor. The F-250 line of trucks is already powerful and large. But the Tremor package is intended to make it even stronger and more capable than before. So, what exactly does the Tremor badge mean for the F-250 trucks? The Tremor package is supposed to turn any Ford-made truck into an off-roading monster. This means better tires, better suspension, and better bumpers. Taller ride height, climb descent control, and rock crawling hopefully. Also, it is supposed to improve the downsides of Ford trucks.
In recent years, Big Blue Oval trucks were weaker in terms of payload capability when compared to RAM and GMC. Now Tremor is here to turn the tide. This probably means that the changes will happen under the hood as well. The F-250 is already Super Duty but you can always make it stronger than it previously was. The upcoming changes are done in order to give the old Ford a fighting chance. Recently many manufacturers unveiled their creations and Ford is losing its lead on the market. Therefore, Big Blue Oval needs to step its game up. Let us read along to find out more about upcoming changes.
The inside of the 2023 Ford F-250 Tremor is getting a touch-up as well. We can’t neglect interiors anymore, since trucks aren’t just working horses nowadays. Expect the cabin to look more stylish, be more comfortable, and have more luxury items than ever before. Having better seats is the way, to begin with, the change. More cushioning is needed, especially with the Tremor badge and being off-road-centric.
No one likes having a stiff back after a ride and having issues getting out of the truck. So, making the seats more comfortable can give some buy appeal. Also heated and ventilated seats are a must. People are expected to sit in their trucks for a while, especially if it’s a working ones. So harshest environments can do a number on you, this way that problem is negated. There are new color schemes planned, hopefully dichromatic. The instrument panel isn’t bland, it has an infotainment system with great connectivity and some chrome accents. The steering wheel is fully redesigned and has a lot of buttons.
This way the safety aspect is addressed and drivers can focus their attention on the front. We are still not sure whether the dashboard is also digital. If it is, that is a great step towards the future. Also, people can customize what they want to track this way and not get distracted without any reason. Hands-free driving should be available in the new F-250 Tremor. This allows people to relax a bit behind the wheel. Not fall asleep. So far, Ford has over 200 000 miles of pre-mapped roads for their version of BlueCruise.
On the outside, the 2023 Ford F-250 Tremor is still an aggressive-looking pickup. It has a tall ride height that is about to become even taller with the Tremor package. The tires are beefier and look menacing. The front fascia is somewhat unchanged. It has a big mesh with Ford lettering. Headlights are still C-shaped and embrace the front mesh. The hood looks sportier as it has some indents. The overall body language is tweaked so the truck is more ergonomic and aerodynamic.
This improves fuel economy which is always needed with trucks. Tailgate has more options, you can use it as a stopper, as a step, or for a seat. Bumpers are prominent and protrude a bit. But still, they won’t get stuck on obstacles. This is due to changes in approach angles. Expect to see the new F-250 Tremor in full four doors design as standard. It will be interesting to see if there are some premium features coming in some other trims. But this is looking great as it is already.
Does Ford F-250 Tremor Offers Diesel Engine?
Although the 2023 Ford F-250 Tremor could use more fighting power, the powertrain offer is intact. We are still getting a mighty 7.3-liter V8 engine. It runs on petrol and can produce 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. This is still the most powerful engine in the gasoline heavy-duty truck segment. It looks like it will remain that way for a while. We also have a 6.7-liter PowerStroke turbo diesel. It can produce over 1000 pound-feet of torque.
Perfect for situations when you get stuck somewhere. Both of these engines come with ten-speed automatic transmission. Rear and front locking differentials and also adjustable air suspension. There are some rumors about a 6.2-liter V8 with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The fuel economy is average for this type of truck. It gets 13.32 mpg of combined driving. In order to improve those numbers, Ford needs to decrease engine size. Which is out of the question since this is a heavy-duty truck after all.
We expect it to perform at a high level no matter the cost. But what about a hybrid system or a fully electric truck? Could the F-250 line receive a Lightning treatment? This would even give more cargo space under the hood. Improve steering as the battery pack would be under the cabin. After all, more and more manufacturers are going the electric way. This can save the planet and is much more friendly on driver’s wallets. So far, dreams of an electric F-250 Tremor are just dreams. It remains to be seen if Ford decides to turn them into reality, we know they are able to.
2023 Ford F-250 Tremor Price and Release Date
Expect to see the 2023 Ford F-250 Tremor later in 2022. This is just in time when most manufacturers decide to unveil their new creations. The price for an F-250 basic version truck is $37500. This price will go up for sure with the Tremor treatment. We expect somewhere closer to the $50000 mark.
