2014 Ford F-150 Tremor is the first EcoBoost®-powered sport truck which has been chosen to pace the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Michigan National Guard 200 on 17th of August. In fact, the Michigan International Speedway is one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit. This made the choice for the vehicle pacing the field very easy because it also needs to be fast.
F-150 Tremor not only will deliver high speeds when needed, but also thanks to its light-weight configuration, EcoBoost engine and launch-optimized performance, is perfect for this task. The new truck will feature the style of the FX Appearance Package and launch-optimized 4.10 rear axle in order to deliver customers with fast acceleration.
To be more precise, the FX Appearance Package includes stealthy, flat-black accents with unique 20-inch wheels, stylized bodyside graphics and black badges with red lettering. In addition, the Tremor will also offer flow-through center console and bucket seats.
The interior of this Ford model include black leather seating surfaces with red piping, brushed-metal accents and a red-stitched steering wheel. There are also featured Alcantara seat inserts which add texture and style.
More importantly, the F-150 Tremor is powered by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. The latter delivers 365 horsepower (268 kW) at 5,000 rpm on regular fuel and generates 570 Nm (420 lb.-ft.) of torque at 2,500 rpm. The engine also includes twin independent variable camshaft timing for enhanced performance and fuel efficiency.
The vehicle will be offered in two- or four-wheel-drive versions, both of which will include an electronic locking rear differential. The F-150 Tremor also comes standard with SYNC® with MyFord Touch, which comprises of a large 8-inch LCD color touch screen, media hub with two USB ports, an SD card reader and audio/video input jacks.
2014 F-150 Tremor will go on sale this autumn.
