2014 F-150 Tremor paces NASCAR this weekend

2014-f150-tremor-2tt

The 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor EcoBoost sport truck will make its first public appearance this weekend. It will lead the field to the green flag at the Michigan International Speedway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Michigan National Guard 200 on Saturday, Aug 17th.

“Michigan International Speedway is one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit, so the vehicle pacing the field also needs to be fast,” said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. “The 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, with its light-weight configuration, EcoBoost engine and launch-optimized performance, is well-suited for this job.”

This 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor’s 365 horsepower EcoBoost engine is identical to the showroom version. Ford says the only major modification to the pace truck is a bank of safety lights mandated by NASCAR. The short-wheelbase, regular-cab Tremor goes on sale this fall, the first offering with the EcoBoost engine.


The all-new truck couples the style of the FX Appearance Package with the popular 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine and a launch-optimized 4.10 rear axle. Ford points out it’s the shortest final drive ratio offered in an EcoBoost F-150. An electronic locking rear differential that’s standard for both two- and four-wheel-drive versions helps deliver the power to the pavement by improving traction during takeoff.

The FX Appearance Package features stealthy, flat-black accents that include unique 20-inch wheels, stylized bodyside graphics and black badges with red lettering.

Tremor is the only regular-cab F-150 offering a flow-through center console and bucket seats. Interior touches include black leather seating surfaces with red piping, brushed-metal accents and a red-stitched steering wheel. Alcantara seat inserts add texture and style as well.

The 2014 F-150 Tremor also comes standard with SYNC with MyFord Touch, which includes a large 8-inch LCD color touch screen mounted in the center stack. This package adds a media hub with two USB ports, an SD card reader and audio/video input jacks.
