Handling the Toughest Terrains: The F150 Tremor

Shereen Shabnam

Equipped with performance-driven technologies, Ford’s off-road all-new F-150 Tremor, built for conquering rough terrains was a delight to drive around Dubai, both on the highway and off the beaten track. We found that the new model combines technology upgrades that match the performance expectations of drivers across the region to make their experience easier, safer, and more exhilarating and it can certainly handle the toughest environments.


The F-150 Tremor’s cabin is spacious and comfortable. The Ford Co-Pilot360 offers an unprecedented available set of features designed to make the driver’s journey as smooth and safe as possible. There is a productivity screen in the instrument cluster displaying useful information and driving modes. The center-stack touchscreen is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the standard SYNC 4 has enhanced voice recognition, allowing your Tremor to make and receive calls without taking eyes off the road or fingers off the steering wheel. The Sound System by Bang & Olufsen delivers powerful audio with eight speakers that match the Tremor’s might, enveloping every occupant with incredibly rich audio.


The Temor is a rugged truck that is built on a high-strength steel frame and military-grade aluminum alloy body. The hood and front end have a muscular profile, while a unique grille featuring a blacked-out Ford oval is highlighted by the signature Tremor color of Active Orange.

The F-150 Tremor has 1.5 inches more total travel in the rear and an additional inch of total travel in front. New 32-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires have been mounted on matte-finish 18-inch wheels for added ground clearance and an inch-wider stance for even more off-road confidence. Raptor-inspired off-road fixed running boards are mounted close to the body to limit damage, while a cutout rear bumper features a high-flow dual exhaust flanking its two rear recovery hooks. Active, Orange-highlighted badging appears on the fenders, bed sides, and tailgate to give the Tremor its unique signature look.


The 360-degree camera package provides an in-cabin view of obstacles around the truck while a front-view camera provides a real-time tire track overlay to dynamically show the path of the wheels ahead. Equally important is control, and the available Ford Trail Toolbox helps drivers rule even the roughest environments.

The Lane-Keeping System alerts drivers that they are straying outside the line, while Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking scans the roads ahead to alert you when a hazard appears or it applies the brakes automatically. For optimum drive modes, the Tremor offers Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, Eco, Slippery and Deep Snow/Sand, and Mud/Rut modes and the Rock Crawl modes.

Engine & Performance

The Tremor comes in 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission plus standard four-wheel drive. Available in standard, mid and high equipment groups, the F-150 Tremor includes a broad range of standard and available features to tackle the toughest, roughest dunes.


With the Ford F150 Tremor, we ventured for longer journeys to a range of scenic outdoor areas as the drive was comfortable and with much better drive assist technologies than ever before in the same model. As different terrain poses different drive requirements, the Tremor features selectable drive modes for different road conditions and is hence ideal for all kinds of road adventures.
