Ford F250 Super Duty Tremor Option Improved By Special Package For SEMA
A couple of months ago, Ford announced the Tremor package for its 2020 F250 Super Duty heavy-duty pickup. The Tremor option is the manufacturer’s attempt to give its customers an F-Series pickup that can go rock-crawling.
F250 Super Duty Tremor Package Almost Complete
Of course, the factory Tremor package was almost complete. Indeed, all the factory offering needed was one or two items – a lift kit and perhaps different front suspension pieces – to go off-roading in the years ahead. Still, the Tremor represented an opportunity for the Ford Accessories group and CGS Performance Products. They were both ready with their takes on appearance packages for the 2020 Ford F250 Super Duty Tremor.
For this year’s SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) show in Las Vegas, Ford and CGS have offered takes on appearance packages for the F250 Super Duty. Let’s look at both starting with the manufacturer’s offering. Ford has also been active with the Ranger as the manufacturer has at least six special Ranger options for SEMA.
For 2020 Ford’s Tremor F250 Super Duty will debut a Black Appearance Package. The Tremor is the most capable four-wheel-drive Super Duty ever. Well-appointed, the Tremor features aggressive 35-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires. A factory lift kit not only levels the front end, but it also improves the F250 Super Duty Tremor’s ride and handling. The tire and wheel combination, plus the lift, give the Tremor F250 best-in-class water-fording ability and the best approach and departure angles of any Super Duty.

The 2020 F250 Super Duty Tremor is ready for serious offroading. Its standard equipment includes a locking rear differential and a Dana limited-slip front differential. To get out of problems in the rough, Ford has equipped the F250 Super Duty Tremor with a Ford Performance Parts Winch by Warn. The winch will be available as an option in early 2020. Other equipment includes:

CGS Performance Products
CGS Performance Products has created an earthquake-themed F250 Super Duty Tremor Crew Cab with a black appearance package for SEMA. Ford’s F250 Super Duty Tremor is, as noted, well-equipped for off-roading, right from the factory. However, firms like CGS take the basic factory-offered package and turn it into something special. For example, CGS Performance Products upgrades the already excellent off-roading package by swapping the factory-offered wheels and tires with 20-inch Grid wheels and 37-inch General tires. The result is an F250 Super Duty Tremor edition with an improved stance and better traction. The washout of these changes is that an already-good off-road rig is now even more capable.
CGS has also added a Ford Accessories Sportliner carpet kit by Bed Rug, which gives the F250 Super Duty Tremor a cleaner look. Rounding out the exterior look is a Retrax PowerTraxPro MX bed cover to keep leaves and other detritus out of the truck bed.
CGS Tremor Package Receives Custom Paint
A custom red Sikkens paint by Akzo Nobel means that this F250 Tremor is not only an excellent off-road rig, but it is also gorgeous. CGS has also added a Rigid Adapt LED lightbar and back-up lights, which means there will be few concerns about finding your way off-road.
