“No matter if you’re on-road or off-road, your truck needs to be tough. That’s why toughness is engrained in Ranger’s DNA throughout design, engineering, and testing.
Tremor gives you the added confidence to get to where you need to go because it’s engineered to the same standards you expect in a Built Ford Tough Truck,” said Chad Callander, Ford Ranger marketing manager.
