A host of off-road goodies makes the truck an off-road contender.

Automakers are scrambling to cash in on the renewed interest in pickup trucks as consumers flock to the once work-oriented machines. Ford is expanding the appeal of its F-Series Super Duty pickups with a new package called Tremor. It’s an off-road package that gives the Ford’s F-250 and F-350 some serious off-road chops.

The package, which will be available with the 2020 Super Duty Pickup lineup, adds a host of off-road ready features. To start, Ford adds 35-inch all-terrain tires, unique 18-inch wheels, and a 2-inch front-end lift. These help give Tremor trucks better ground clearance—10.8 inches—and the best approach and departure angles ever for a Super Duty.

Customers can opt for either the new gasoline 7.3-liter V8 or the 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel, both of which pair with the ten-speed automatic. Other Tremor package additions include a Dana limited-slip futon differential, a rear electronic locking differential, skid plates, and new drive modes that include rock-crawl mode. Ford also added Trail Control from the F-150 Raptor, which is a low-speed cruise-control-like system that keeps the truck moving forward at a constant speed so the driver can focus on steering.

The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty Tremor package puts the heavy-duty pickups in a small class. Its most direct competitor is the Ram 2500 Power Wagon, which is even more capable than the Tremor package, offering powder-coated bumpers, factory-installed winch, and 360-degree Surround View camera; however, the only powertrain is the 410-horsepower 6.4-liter gas V8. GMC is also expected to jump into the heavy-duty off-road segment with a beefed-up version of the Sierra HD. A possible off-road-ready Chevy Silverado HD is possible, too, if GM has plans for GMC.

Ford says the Tremor package will be available later this year.
