As the automotive industry continues to evolve, Ford is taking a step forward with its latest pickup truck, the Maverick Tremor. Dubbed a “compact pickup for the 2020s”, this truck promises to be one of the most efficient and versatile in its class. To get an up-close look at all that the Maverick Tremor has to offer, we recently traveled to Northern California to take it out for a test drive. Read on for our full review of the 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor and how it stacks up against its competitors.
What’s new for the Ford Maverick Tremor?
The 2021 Ford Maverick Tremor is a new trim level for the Ford Maverick compact pickup truck. The Tremor trim adds off-road capability with upgraded suspension, all-terrain tires, and skid plates. It’s also available with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and gets unique exterior and interior styling. Here’s what you need to know about the new 2021 Ford Maverick Tremor.
How does the Ford Maverick Tremor drive?
The Tremor is the most off-road-focused variant of the new Maverick pickup. It’s got a beefed-up suspension with Fox shocks, skid plates, and 32-inch all-terrain tires. The Tremor also gets an exclusive interior with front bucket seats, a rear bench seat, and a center console.
On the road, the Tremor is a competent and comfortable truck. It’s not as nimble as some of its smaller rivals, but it’s still manageable in city traffic. The ride is smooth and quiet on the highway, and the truck feels planted and stable at high speeds.
Off-road, the Tremor is surprisingly capable. The all-wheel-drive system provides good traction in slippery conditions, and the Fox shocks help absorb bumps and ruts in the trail. The truck can even handle some light rock crawling thanks to its high ground clearance and short overhangs.

– Front and rear airbags: The Maverick Tremor is equipped with front and rear airbags, which will deploy in the event of a collision.
