The Ford Ranger Tremor is an upcoming off-road oriented midsize truck that is expected to take the fight to the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and Jeep Gladiator sometime next year. But if you can’t wait for it, Roush has something that may pique your interest. Simply called the Roush Ranger, it’s a visual stunner, and loaded with trail-ready hardware to venture into the deep unknown of the wilderness. Or a weekend camping spot. Choose your own adventure.

The off-road highlights of the Roush Ranger consist of a Fox 2.0 Performance Suspension System co-developed by Roush, General Tire 32-inch Grabber ATX tires, Roush 18-inch satin black wheels, a leveling kit, suspension tuning, and a dual-tip performance cat-back exhaust system. Separating it from common Rangers from a visual standpoint is a signature “ROUSH” grille with dual LED light bars and Magnetic Gray painted Fender Flares with integrated accent lighting. On the side there’s custom fender vent badging, “ROUSH” graphics around the vehicle, and “ROUSH” puddle lamps.

The interior of the Roush Ranger features premium leather with quilted stitching and embroidered headrests, unique gauges, branded floor liners, serialized interior badging, a certificate of authenticity and Roush-branded “R” key fobs.

The base price for this package is – get ready – $12,750 on top of the standard Ford Ranger required to build it from. The configurator is loaded with options, too, such as a $3,200 sport bar with lights, various body graphics, storage vaults, and an off-road utility kit. Customers would still have to go buy a Ford Performance chip tune separately to add on any power to their Roush Ranger. In theory, you could have one of these adventure-ready trucks for a minimum of $36,860. But that’s nearly $6,000 less than a Colorado ZR2, and roughly $3,000 more than a base Jeep Gladiator, if you’re wondering.

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.
