Ford Maverick Tremor

Yes another Ford Tremor, this one is a Maverick. But not the hybrid one that gets astronomical gas mileage. But it is 4×4, crew cab as all Mavericks. 8-speed automatic, even 8-way power drivers seat.  Nice size as for parking and more room inside that you would think, feels more than a Ranger. But that can’t be, it’s a mini truck, now called compact truck. Actually a fun truck. Even with 4 cylinder gas engine and Ecoboost turbo, it does get up and go. And the EPA rates it at 29 mpg on the highway. Not sure what to do with a 4.5 ft bed. I guess you could haul a bunch of folding chairs and a lawn mower. But it does have power, 250 horse power, 277 torque. Because the Tremor has a 1 in lift, has a whole inch up, it can only tow 2000 lbs. Designed to do some off-roading, trail riding or chasing your livestock for a round up.  The regular Maverick with turbo and AWD can tow 4000 lbs. 16.5 gallon gas tank will carry you 400 miles. Tremor has all terrain tires, skid plates, Trail Control, like Bronco and Raptor. Which is like a cruise control for climbing the Rockies.  And twin clutch rear drive like a locker for better traction. Unique springs, heavy duty transmission cooler and heavy duty 1/2 shafts to be almost a heavy duty. Unique front bumper does give you a better approach angle and clearance. Orange accents look cool, even the wheels have an orange accents to tell you where the valve stem is in case you forget. 1500 pound payload will get you a load of firewood in the bed. The tailgate cable is like Jeep Gladiator, you can hook it 1/2 way open for hauling longer lumber. This Maverick was a Lariat Tremor so very well loaded. Leather seats, automatic headlights, power mirrors, even a power sliding rear window, high beams,  power tailgate lock, auto zone climate control, though I don’t know why. The center stack has a 8 inch touch screen. Seventeen inch aluminum wheels, good looking splash guards in the wheel wells. Factory sprayed in bedliner, is a good deal. Has a trailer hitch, but no brake controller. I could have towed 2000 lb trailer, but my small trailers are in a snow drift. I’m really getting tired of snow. In Colorado, snow use to melt, this year it just turns to ice. Totally loaded with graphics and both the off-road package and appearance package on this truck. Traction control, better seats, AWD mostly like front will drive,  but you can lock it in 4×4. The Maverick is an unibody mostly like cars and small SUV. Similar to Bronco Sport, and made in Mexico.  The full size spare surprised me.
