Ford unveiled the Maverick Tremor, an off-road version of its cheapest pickup truck.
The Tremor package costs $2,995 and provides a new suspension, more ground clearance, and other off-roading upgrades.
It'll be available to order in September.
Ford is launching a new, off-road version of its popular Maverick pickup truck.
The 2023 Maverick Tremor will be available to order starting in September, and production starts this fall.
It builds on the success of the Maverick, a smaller, cheaper Ford truck that went on sale last fall and slots below the bigger Ranger and even bigger F-150.
The Tremor package adds a bunch of features that make the Maverick better-suited to off-road adventures.
The Maverick is available as a two-wheel-drive hybrid delivering up to 40 miles per gallon.
But the Tremor add-on will only be available for trucks with all-wheel drive and the non-hybrid engine.
Tremor trucks get a locking rear differential, which should help their wheels find grip in especially gnarly off-road situations.
It comes with Trail Control, which is available in other Ford off-roaders and is essentially a low-speed cruise control for off-pavement driving.
Ford also gave it a new suspension system that lifts the truck by one inch.
And skid plates protect the truck from rocks.
The truck can tow up to 2,000 pounds and has a payload rating of 1,200 pounds.
The Maverick Tremor also gets distinct looks, including signature orange accents throughout.
It has blacked-out Ford logos, headlights, and taillights …
… and orange accents on the grille and tow hooks.
It also gets unique 17-inch wheels.
The theme continues to the inside, where you'll find Tremor logos and orange stitching.
The Tremor package is available on the Maverick's Lariat and XLT trims for $2,995.
A special appearance package, which includes black graphics and gray accents, costs $1,495.
