The recently unveiled 2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor has certainly generated plenty of aftershocks since it was recently unleashed a short while ago. Designed to give the F-250 and its beefier F-350 counterpart an extra slice of off-road capability to go along with its bigger proportions, the Tremor is certainly a distinctive flavor of Super Duty. However, the lone item that has eluded detection is what the soundtrack from the Tremor’s all new 7.3 liter V8 sounds like. But thanks to an exclusive video from the folks at TFLoffroad, we finally get the goods on the V8’s singing voice.
As you can hear, the sound from the stock exhaust is very muscular, but its also subdued, and is not too harsh on the ears either. Meanwhile, the noise is still very throaty and confident from inside the cabin, but the interior itself still retains an impressive level of quietness. This is partially due to the extensive amounts of sound deadening, which helps keep excessive noise from penetrating the cabin.
For those that need a brief refresher on what the Tremor package brings to the table, it is an option that is only available on the XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims for both the F-250 and F-350. Checking this box on the options list transforms these trucks into back country bruisers with goodies such as 35-inch all-terrain tires that Ford claims are the largest tires ever outfitted to a heavy duty pickup. Other off-road centric goodies include Dana locking rear axles, an off-road focused Fox suspension, skid plates, and even power running boards to help make entry and exit a bit easier.
While the 6.7 liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 carries over with minor tweaks for 2020, the 7.3 liter gasoline V8 is an all new addition for the nrw model year, and brings 430 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. As mentioned by Ford during the 2019 Texas State Fair, these two figures are the best in the segment for an engine of this type, and is mated to a 10-speed automatic. Ford has not released final pricing for the 2020 Super Duty range, including how much the Tremor package adds to the final MSRP. Look for Ford to announce those numbers towards the end of the year, especially before the truck makes its formal launch to dealerships.
