Boreas Campers Make Cameo in New Ford F-150 Tremor Announcement

Showcasing its capability in the world of outdoor recreation, Ford has debuted their new F-150 Tremor hitched to a Boreas XT camper (read our XT12 camper feature here). With Covid-19 hanging around longer than most people anticipated, outdoor recreation has become more important than ever, offering a reasonable way to get out and have fun while maintaining responsible social distancing. Ford’s aim to showcase its Tremor as the ideal outdoor recreation vehicle is well-timed.


New Features

The new F150 variant offers a selection of features that support towing and off-highway driving. Here’s a glimpse.

Trail One-Pedal Drive– Applies brakes automatically as the driver eases off of the accelerator, effectively performing left-foot braking with the use of a single pedal.

Trail Turn Assist – Applies brakes to the inside rear wheel when turning, creating a tighter turn radius.

Trail Control – Basically, it’s cruise control for off-highway driving.


With a maximum conventional tow-rating of 10,900 pounds, the Tremor is more than capable of towing the relatively lightweight Boreas XT or XT-12 (dry weight of 3,500 pounds). Check out the Boreas Campers website for more information about this launch and Ford’s pairing of the new F-150 Tremor and the Boreas XT trailer.
