2020 F-Series Super Duty Tremor Off-Road Package Debuts

The “Tremor” badge officially returns to Ford’s lineup by way of a serious off-road package, available on the 2020 F-Series Super Duty. Last seen on the previous generation F-150, the Tremor name has typically been more style than substance. This is not the case with the 2020 Super Duty Tremor, which offers a completely upgraded off-roading experience thanks to an upgraded suspension, bigger tires, and new drive modes.

Ford Updates the 2019 F-150 Raptor

Ford has revealed the updated 2019 F-150 Raptor lineup, and it includes lots of important updates. The biggest update is the all-new smart Fox Racing Shox with Live Valve technology which allows the Raptor’s suspension to have continuously variable damping. This means that the Raptor can adjust dampers to be more stiff when in the air prior to landing, or maximize comfort while on the road. 

Ford has also given the 2019 F-150 Raptor a technology called Trail Control, which helps drivers navigate challenging conditions in low-speed off-road situations. Trail Control automatically adjusts power and braking to each individual wheel, which Ford says helps the driver to focus more on steering without having to worry about throttle modulation and braking. 

Other updates include new Recaro sport seats with Alcantara inserts, and new exterior colors called Ford Performance Blue, Velocity Blue, and Agate Black.

Loaner Review: 2017 Camaro V6

Despite no longer cosying up to the warm bosom of the press fleet industrial complex, I still occasionally find myself behind the wheel of cars other than my own. Such was the case last week when I brought my own car, a C7 Corvette Z51, into the dealer for some warranty work and found myself sitting in the fortified bunker – aka cabin – of a loaner 2017 Camaro. Unlike the other sixth gen that I previously wrote up on these pages, which was option-laden but also saddled with the middling 2.0T Ecotec, this one featured nary an add-on save for the 3.6L LGX “High Feature” V6…a swap that made this drab-looking coupe immeasurably better to drive.
