Ford unveils the F-150 Tremor, a 365-hp sport truck (PHOTOS)

So while we patiently await the unveiling of the 2015 F-150, Ford has given us something to satiate our hunger for new trucks in the F-150 Tremor.
Unveiled today, the 2014 F-150 Tremor is Ford’s first sport truck powered by its EcoBoost V-6 engine. The Tremor also represents the first sport truck Ford has offered at all since the SVT Lightning was discontinued in 2004.
Slated to hit dealerships this Fall, the F-150 Tremor is a regular-cab pickup featuring a short-wheelbase design and Ford’s FX Appearance Package with flat-black accents, 20-inch wheels, stylized bodyside graphics and black badges with red lettering.
Under the hood is a 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine that produces 420 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed transmission complements that V-6 and the Tremor is the first pickup to feature that combination.
Greatly assisting during acceleration is a 4.10:1 rear axle which Ford says is the shortest final drive ratio offered in any F-150 with an EcoBoost engine. An electronic locking rear differential comes standard for both the two- and four-wheel-drive versions of the Tremor.
Inside, the Tremor features a flow-through center console and black leather bucket seats with red piping. The interior also features brushed-metal accents and a red-stitched steering wheel.
