Ford Tremor: Eco-Friendly F-150 Sport Truck Creates Buzz

By Alexandra Ward   |   Friday, 28 Jun 2013 08:20 AM

The 2014 F-150 Ford Tremor, the automaker's first sport truck with an eco-friendly engine, made its debut Thursday and although it doesn’t go on sale until next fall, it's already building up a loyal following.

Built for the "street truck enthusiast," the sporty, two-door Ford Tremor boasts a fuel economy of 16/22 mpg city/highway with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that couples a V8's performance with a V6's gas mileage.

Pricing has not yet been announced.

"The new Tremor gives F-150 customers yet another option to drive a highly capable, distinctive performance truck with features typically found only in the aftermarket," Brian Bell, F-150 product marketing manager, said in a statement. "Plus, the Built Ford Tough EcoBoost engine is available for the first time in a short-wheelbase F-150."


The Tremor is already creating a buzz on Twitter.



Auto writers are also excited about Ford's new eco-friendly truck.

"My favorite trucks are ones that can haul stuff, are easy to park, decent on gas, and ideally, can annihilate tires when I want them to. Meet the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, which sounds like it can do all of those things," Patrick George wrote on Jalopnik, a car weblog. "The Tremor is basically a baby performance F-150. I say 'baby,' because it only comes in short cab, short wheelbase form. It's not a Ranger, but it's about as small as Ford trucks get these days. And it sounds like it's a blast to drive too."
