Off-Roading Ford Style
The new Ford trucks offer Tennesee's off-road adventure seekers factory-installed features for hitting the trails.
The Rattler provides an entry-level four-wheel drive with all the Ford styling you love. Rugged all-terrain tires mounted on painted 18” aluminum wheels give the truck a sporty look. Off-road must-haves include skid plates, electronic rear-locking differential, hill descent control, and off-road shock absorbers, increasing stability on the roughest terrain.
The Rattler stands out from the crowd with aggressive styling, a dual exhaust system, Rattler badging on fender vents, and rattlesnake graphics. The unique appearance continues inside on onyx seats with bronze accents that match instrument panel trim, completing the desert-inspired theme.
The Tremor is built for serious off-roaders with a 400-horsepower V8 and 430 lb.-ft of torque, plus a 9.75-inch gearset and electronic locking rear differential.
This truck is off-road capable straight from the factory, with 33-inch all-terrain tires, a locking rear differential, upgraded suspension, and a four-wheel drive transfer case. You can select between normal, sport, ECO, slippery, deep snow/sand, rock crawl, mud/rut, and tow/haul driving modes.
With a distinctive hood, orange-accented grill, and unique step bars, you'll love its one-of-a-kind appearance. Skid plates, box-side decals, and dark-matte 18” wheels let you enjoy everything from speeding through the woods to climbing mountains.
The Raptor has a high-output V6 with 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft, making it ideal for high-speed off-roading. The truck manages speed and braking while you concentrate on steering. The electronic differential, heavy-duty skid plates, hi-lock transfer case, and Trail 1-Pedal Drive make rock crawling a breeze.
You'll enjoy the truck's distinctive look with bumper performance accents, flared front fenders, a flared pickup box, and a unique grille with FORD block letters.

Cameras are in the grill and on the tailgate, allowing you to see around your vehicle while in reverse.
The Pro Trailer Backup Assist has a knob that turns the trailer while the steering wheel keeps the trailer straight. Dynamic Trailer hitch is an on-screen guide, making hookup a sinch.
The Ford Onboard Scales weigh your payload, and Smart Hitch helps with the tongue weight. An LED display on tail lights lets you know when you’re at your maximum weight. You can operate all systems with FordPass, which show on the Sync 4 touchscreen.
