Why Drive an F-350 When You Could Drive a Ford F-350 Tremor?

2021 Ford F-350 Tremor Review

We may not need the Ford F-350 Tremor, but boy, do we want it.

Not many people need a truck as big as the Ford F-350, but for those who do, it can be the perfect combination of workhorse and luxury. Able to tow up to 20k pounds, this truck is more than capable. But what about off-road? Perhaps you like to work hard during the week and mud a little on the weekends. Enter the Ford F-350 Tremor.

Ford F-350 Tremor

First of all, the F-350 is a HUGE truck. Unless you’re ranching, hot-shot towing or pulling some really heavy equipment you won’t need this truck. Some have called the F-350’s V8 engine and its 1,050 pound-feet of torque “utterly ridiculous” but we’re pretty sure that was a compliment because this truck is a thrill to drive on and off road. The Tremor package is available on the F-150 and F-250 as well. So if you like what you’re seeing but don’t need a truck this big, take heart!

The off-road Tremor package for the F-350 adds 35-inch all-terrain tires, a rear locking differential, lifted suspension and underbody skid plates, custom sway bars and upgraded twin-tube shocks to take some of the bumping out of the ride when the road is uneven. Technology like trail control and drive mode selectors help you customize the truck’s suspension for the task at hand. And if you think you might get stuck at some point, Ford offers an optional 12,000-pound Warn winch to get you un-stuck in a heartbeat.
