New, Limited Edition, Ranger Tremor Adds Even Greater
Capability and Versatility to Ranger Line-up



  • The Adventurous Ford Ranger Tremor comes equipped with the same suspension upgrades as the recent special edition Wildtrak X, including specially developed Bilstein Position-Sensitive Dampers, 24mm higher ground clearance and 30mm wider track
  • Tremor comes powered by one of the segments cleanest (Euro 6 compliant) yet most powerful engines – the Ford 2.0L Bi-Turbo
  • Tremor also features full-time 4WD and specially designed interior trim that can be easily cleaned in between hard-working applications

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, 13 March 2024 – Following the very popular and adventure-ready Ranger Wildtrak X, Ford is introducing even greater diversity and appeal to the Ranger line-up with the new Ranger Tremor; also a limited edition in New Zealand. The Ford Ranger Tremor is available to order today from Ford dealers across the country and has a recommended retail price of $74,990*.

“Tremor is aimed at customers who require enhanced on and off road comfort while retaining 3.5t towing capability, Tremor is customised off the shelf for any adventure,” says David Herbert, Marketing Manager at Ford New Zealand. “Like our recent special editions though, it will go quickly.”

“Tremor has all of the enhanced capabilities of the recently sold out Wildtrak X, and it’s based on the Sport series which makes it a more affordable option suited to hard-working Kiwi environments,” Herbert added.

The Ranger Tremor Double Cab uses the same 154kW/500Nm 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine and full-time four-wheel drive (4WD) system, and benefits from the innovative Trail Turn Assist feature that allows the vehicle to manoeuvre around the tightest off-road turns with ease.

Style and Substance
In keeping with its adventurous character, the Ranger Tremor is visually distinguished from the rest of the line up through the addition of a black honeycomb off-road front grille that is equipped with the same LED auxiliary driving lights, along with unique Bolder Grey exterior details for the lower sections of the front bumper and H-bar, fender vents, mirror caps, door handles, and rear bumper.

This is complemented by extended wheel arch mouldings in Bolder Grey that frame the purposeful 265/70 R17 all-terrain General Grabber AT3 tyres with white lettering, mounted on 17-inch Asphalt Black machine-faced alloy rims.

Further distinguishing the Ranger Tremor from its siblings is the inclusion of the ‘Tremor’ badge on the rear tailgate and bold ‘Tremor’ decals on the sides. Another special detail is the use of the black Ford Oval on the front grille and tailgate – an exclusive treatment that is shared only with the Ranger Raptor.

Proving that the muscular appearance is a combination of both style and substance, Ranger Tremor’s go-anywhere abilities are reinforced with the standard fitment of a tough enthusiast-rated steel bash plate, steel underbody protection for the engine, transfer case and fuel tank, two front tow hooks, cast aluminium side steps and the distinctive long-leg tubular sports bar.

The tough off-road enhancements incorporate the same reworked suspension with specially developed Bilstein Position-Sensitive Dampers as used on the Wildtrak X. This unleashes a 24mm increase in ground clearance accompanied by a 30mm wider track, giving the Tremor even greater control and poise in the toughest driving conditions.

Adding a further touch of exclusivity, Ranger Tremor is available in Conquer Grey – a colour option which was previously limited to the Ranger Raptor. Additional choices include: Arctic White, Shadow Black, Conquer Grey and Blue Lightning.

Tough, Durable and Practical
The Ranger Tremor is designed to conquer the toughest conditions, and this theme is carried through to the cabin which matches high-tech features with outstanding practicality and durability.

The seats are trimmed in water-resistant black vinyl with Medium Dark Urban Grey stitching. The front seats incorporate the Tremor logo embroidered in orange on the seatbacks and provide six-way adjustment. In place of traditional carpets, vinyl flooring provides a practical touch that makes cleaning the interior a breeze, even after a muddy off-road adventure.

Precision Grey accents and Ebony upper trim finishes on the doors and dashboard ensure that the Ranger’s top-notch quality, luxury and refinement remain as appealing as ever, despite the Tremor’s rugged nature.

The standard fitment of the roof-mounted auxiliary switches allows seamless fitment of the powered accessories that are part and parcel of 4×4 overlanding. Provision is made for the fitment of a second battery in the engine bay with no modifications required – a feature that is common to all new Rangers.

The Tremor is equipped with Off-road SYNC Screen, wireless charging as standard, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Off-road Capability

Along with the muscular appearance of the Tremor, there’s a lot going on under the skin to further enhance this unique Ranger’s ‘Built Ford Tough’ off-road capabilities.

Taking on the toughest conditions, and a whole lot more, with confidence is as easy as selecting the appropriate Drive Mode via the rotary dial, comprising Normal, Eco, Tow/Haul, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, Sand and Rock Crawl. The system adjusts the throttle response, gearshifts, traction and stability control, rear diff-lock, as well as the steering and braking system to optimise vehicle performance to suit the terrain.

Additionally, Ranger Tremor joins Wildtrak and Raptor as the only models in the Ranger line-up available with Ford’s full-time four-wheel drive system, which uses an electromagnetic transfer case (eMTC) mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission with advanced eShifter and electronic parking brake.

It offers the convenience and safety of permanent 4WD in 4 Auto (4A) mode which is suitable for both on and off-road driving. The system also includes 4 High (4H) that provides an equal split of the power delivery to the front and rear axles for driving on loose surfaces, and 4 Low (4L) for tackling arduous off-road conditions.

There’s also a two-wheel drive (2H) mode which disengages the front axle for rear-wheel drive only. Another benefit of the 4WD system is the fitment of disc brakes all-round for improved on and off-road braking performance.

An extensive range of driver assistance systems provide enhanced confidence in any terrain, including the new Trail Turn Assist feature that debuted on the Raptor. The system brakes the inside wheel when negotiating tight bends in off-road conditions below 19km/h, reducing the vehicle’s turning radius by up to 25 percent to help navigate around obstacles.

Trail Control is also standard on Ranger Tremor. The driver simply selects a set speed below 32km/h when driving off-road, and the vehicle will manage its acceleration and braking while the driver concentrates on steering through difficult terrain.

This is complemented by the usual gamut of driver assist and active safety features common to the Ranger line-up, such as Hill Descent Control, Hill Launch Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (which includes Load Adaptive Control, Roll Over Mitigation, Traction Control and Trailer Sway Control). It also boasts the Lane Keeping System with Road Edge Detection, Pre-Collision Assist (with Dynamic Brake Support, Forward Collision Warning System and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection), Reverse Brake Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring with Trailer Coverage, and parking sensors front and rear.

Post-Collision Braking is standard on Tremor, along with nine airbags (dual front, side, curtain and driver’s knee), Smart Keyless Entry with Push Button Start and an alarm system and immobiliser.
