2020 Ford Tremor 6.7 liter powerstroke & 2020 Ram power wagon


Recommended Posts

Saw this video and thought it was worth a share...the F-250 6.7 liter 475 hp, @1050 lbs of torque Tremor is quite a beast.
Enjoy! ūüėä

They’re both cool trucks but the Tremor is better set up for towing. I'm surprised that no one is towing with it already - if I were buying today, I’d definitely give it serious thought. 

But then again there’s the new Raptor coming out.  And the TRX. And the CyberTruck. Defender. Bronco. Too many cool trucks out there right now.

David,

Congrats on the new Tremor! Can't wait to see the "Beast" with Ollie!

 

Thank you Bill, appreciate the kind compliment. Both the Ollie and the Tremor will get 10 mil XPEL front end paint protection this week. I will let you know how everything goes.

Sure - a guy just can't be seen towing that new Oliver with a shabby "old" truck.

Seriously, congratulations!  Can't wait to see a pic of the beast towing the beast.

Thank you all for the very kind compliments. We surely hope it serves us well. This morning I did remove the Andersen WDH and will offer it up in the classifieds for half of what we paid Oliver. 
The Ollie sits a tad nose high, but the Tremor is empty of cargo and so is the Ollie, we’ll see how everything looks after we load up. I think everything will level out just fine payload wise. 
 

Tomorrow morning we have scheduled the Ollie for XPEL 10 mil paint protection on the front corners and we will have the Tremor done as well. We are looking forward to seeing everyone who still has reservations at Lake Guntersville.

-David

@Patriot that's a beautiful truck. 

I especially like the wheels. Stock?

Are you sure you want to add a coating to the truck?

Thank you SeaDawg, much appreciated...Tremor wheels only¬†come¬†with the Ford Tremor Pkg. The, larger tires and lift give an approximate 4‚ÄĚ lift.

We have had XPEL.com paint protection on our cars and trucks for the last decade. It’s excellent paint protection. Should you need to remove it a steamer will take it off. I have never needed to remove it. It’s really all about the installer and final fit and finish install.

Just looked up the xpel. 

I thought you were looking at a product like vortex.

So, you've been happy with the xpel? Good to know.

Again, congratulations !

I watched the first couple of minutes of that video, then I turned it off - what a couple of idiots. I did switch to their actual offroad review video, which was not a drag race on a dead flat dry lake bed, and it confirmed what I already knew. ... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WtzJ3OfJLNo

A heavy diesel truck with a big payload rating simply cannot work as well off pavement as a gas truck with a light one. Good articulation over uneven terrain equals comfort for your people and your cargo, since the body is not constantly lurching from side to side and lifting tires off the ground. Soft long travel suspension equals comfort on choppy surfaces like washboard and unexpected ruts. You can drive much faster (not towing) in comfort because the suspension can work easily and it is not limited by excessively massive springs.

If that stuff is irrelevant to you, then the PW should not even be under your consideration. A Tremor would be a fine choice if you need to carry a camper or UTV on the back, or just gotta have those 1000 foot pounds of torque.

I would buy a PW in a heartbeat over any other pickup, but I have to admit that an 8 liter Hemi gas engine would make it better..... but no turbos for me. Maybe a supercharger running at 4 or 5psi if it could tolerate regular gas. Sometimes you may find a station out in the middle of nowhere that has nothing but Regular.

If you want a diesel with big payload that is a Not A Ford, and also want to get off smooth surfaces, consider a stock Ram 2500 (rear coil springs) Cummins 6.7 In the trim of your choice, and then add a high quality aftermarket suspension from Carli.

I hope you're able to get a better price than I am here.  I just got a quote for doing the front cap of my wife's new car and it was $2500, plus another grand for the ceramic coating on top.  Yikes - I want to do it since we tend to keep cars for a while, but that's a steep price to pay.

I'd really love to do the ceramic coating on the Ollie, but I can't imagine what that'd be.

XPEL paint protection installed today on the Ollie and Tremor. A long day but we got all of the paint production 10 mil on the front of the Ollie and got the Tremor covered as well. This installer a long time friend is excellent and has had numerous awards from XPEL as a master at his craft.

A good day but a long 9 hr day...a few pics of ‚Äúpaint protection day‚ÄĚ.....the Oliver had¬†the front corners, dog house,¬†lower quarter panels and behind the rear wheels¬†all done in 10 mil XPEL. The Tremor had¬†entire hood, both front¬†fenders, w/s¬†pillars, both tow mirrors and front and rear quarter panels covered. A few random photos of p/p day.

Ok, buy a power wagon. ūüėā and you can take a chance knowing you will get¬†boot¬†stomped extremely hard like the PW guy in the video. ūüėā

Onward! ūüėĄ
