Video: Is the Most Off-Road Worthy Ford Ranger Tremor Any Good In the Snow? Let’s Find Out!

We just put the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor against our Gladiator Rubicon and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro – check that out on TFLoffroad!

The burley Ford Ranger Tremor tested in the snow? Oh yes we did!

We took the Ford Ranger Tremor and put it through its paces in the snow, because – why not? We are based in snow country and the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor is already an off-road beast, why not challenge it in powder? Snow is remarkably difficult, especially on heavy trucks without snow tires.

The Ranger Tremor has a factory suspension lift and FOX shocks. Offering better ground clearance and articulation than the Ranger FX4, the Tremor is remarkably capable. Other upgrades include unique wheels and General Grabber all-terrain tires. Under normal conditions, the Ranger Tremor rides exceptionally well.

According to Andre Smirnov, “It may just be one of the best-riding new trucks in the midsize segment.”

Ford took the Ranger Tremor out into the desert, but how does it fare in the snow?

What does the Ranger Tremor cost?

If you want to add the Tremor package to your Ranger (only on Ranger crew cab 4×4 models with XLT or Lariat trims), it costs about $4,300. A top-of-the-line, Lariat model can push the price to about $47,000.

The powertrain is the same as all of the other Rangers. It comes with a 270 horsepower 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 that makes 310 lbs-feet of torque. The Ranger’s only available transmission is a 10-speed automatic. According to ford: those who want more power can buy a Ford Performance tuner module that adds about 40 horsepower.

Why drive it in the snow?

Snow, even on the streets, seriously challenges tires, weight, AWD/4WD systems and so on. Sure, snow tires can change everything, and we always recommend them for snow-belt drivers. In most cases, drivers rely on the tire setup that comes directly from the factory. That’s why we test them with their factory rubber.

Fear not, this little truck is impressive in every environment we’ve (thus far) tested in. Check out this video and see what Roman thinks!
