Ford is shaking the ground again with yet another off-road ready truck. A year after the mighty Maverick made it to the stage, Ford has debuted the Tremor variant for the 2023 model year. The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor seeks to deliver on elevated capabilities beyond the Maverick FX4 package, and does so with a dash of off-road tech currently found in the Ford Bronco Badlands.

Following the success of the 2022 Maverick, Ford is expanding its compact truck lineup with the new 2023 Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package, one of Ford’s hottest products becoming available as the company again begins taking new customer orders for its lineup of in-demand vehicles.

The Most Capable Maverick Yet

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor is available for XLT and Lariat series trucks, comes with a punchy 2.0L EcoBoost engine, all-wheel-drive, and a GKN-sourced twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock. This system, which is standard on the Bronco Badlands, can send virtually all rear axle torque to either wheel. The Maverick Tremor also comes with the GOAT Modes that are also on the Bronco Sport Badlands, which calibrate the truck to optimally take on the sand, mud, snow, rocks, as well as the pavement.

The Ford Maverick Tremor features standard with Trail Control, which operates like a low-speed cruise control for off-road driving. The truck manages throttle and brake, while the driver focuses on the obstacles ahead. Some people seem to like this. Adding to the off-road capabilities are a set of standard all-terrain tires, a unique lower front fascia with a more aggressive approach angle and steel skid plates.

Compared to the rest of the 2023 Maverick lineup, the Tremor features a unique set of front and rear springs and shocks, along with a 1-inch increase in ride height. To keep it Built Ford Tough, the Maverick Tremor also features a heavy-duty transmission cooler and upgraded half-shafts. The maximum tow rating is listed at 2,000 pounds, and payload rating of 1,200 pounds.

2023 Ford Maverick Design

Ford did a good job making sure that the Tremor design cues came through on its latest addition to the family. On the Maverick Tremor we see a unique grille finish, blacked-out Ford logos, as well as smoked out headlamps and taillamps. The two front tow hooks get signature Tremor Orange accents. The package also gets a unique set of 17-inch dark gray finished aluminum wheels with a Tremor Orange insert. The interior sees Black Onyx seats featuring stitched Tremor logos and signature Tremor Orange accents. The center console, register vents and door pulls are updated to include the new color scheme as well.

To stand out further, there’s the available Tremor Appearance Package for the Maverick, which includes a Carbonized Gray-painted roof and mirror caps, as well as black side graphics on the hood and lower body.

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package is priced from $2,995 USD, while the Tremor Appearance Package costs $1,495. Both packages are available for ordering in September. Production for the 2023 Ford Maverick begins this fall.
