Just in the past few years, the Ford Truck family has gone to fantastic lengths to offer a smörgåsbord of off-road ready and rugged variants well beyond just the F-150 Raptor. That’s the same for the SUV family as well. Depending on what you’re in the market for, there’s likely a Tremor, a Rattler, an FX4, a Raptor, or even a Timberline version of it. And we haven’t even gotten to the Bronco family. Logically, it comes as no surprise to learn that Ford Motor Company is currently hard at work readying a more rugged variation of the popular Maverick small truck. It’s believed to wear the ‘Tremor’ moniker.

Ford Maverick Tremor: Details

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor package will follow a familiar formula seen with the Ranger Tremor and F-150 Tremor, and is expected to be available on both XLT and Lariat trim levels. Visually, it will be easy to tell it apart from more basic versions of the truck thanks to its Active Orange accents on the grille, wheels and tow hooks. Darker tinted front and rear lights will also be present on the Maverick Tremor. A higher clearance, angled front bumper also replaces what we currently see on the FX4 package. It’s unclear if it will be composed of steel like on the Ranger Tremor and F-150 Tremor, or if it will be a more cost-effective plastic.

There are bound to be chassis upgrades for the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor, but such upgrades are not immediately clear. It’s likely to see damper upgrades, at minimum, likely borrowed from the Ford Bronco Sport. That said, the tires appear unique to the Maverick Tremor. The Ford Bronco Sport Badlands utilizes the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tire. The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor will use the Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail, a slightly less aggressive and more cost-effective choice.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
