2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor Off-Road Package
For truck owners who want even more off-road capability for their heavy-truck, Ford is offering the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty with an all-new Tremor Off-Road Package. This new package allows the Super Duty to handle all kinds of rough terrain, while still providing more towing and payload capacity than competitors like the Ram Power Wagon.
“A growing number of Super Duty customers use their trucks for more than work,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “They’re fishing, camping and towing boats on weekends and the go off-road, so we designed this truck specifically for them.”
The Super Duty with the Tremor Off-Road Package gives drivers more ground clearance, as well as bigger shocks, bigger tires, a locking rear differential, beefy skid plates and more off-road capability. All of these off-road ready upgrades don’t hurt towing and payload ratings for the Super Duty either, so you can still do all of the work you need.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is available for F-250 and F-350 models, and can be had in XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. Engine options are either a 7.3-liter gas V8 or a 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel. All Tremor Super Duty trucks are 4×4 single-rear-wheel models with the SuperCrew cab and 6.75-foot box.
Selectable drive modes give customers more options depending on weather and road conditions, and include normal, tow/haul, eco, slippery for ice and deep snow/sand for low traction conditions. The 2020 Super Duty with the Tremor Off-Road Package also gets a standard 10-speed automatic transmission and Trail Control.
