Anyone buy a Tremor yet?

As the title states- anyone buy a Tremor yet?

The lease is up on my F150 in July and I am seriously thinking about buying one. I've only seen one on the roads and it looks great. Hoping to find one at a dealer to test drive sometime in the next month or two.

Way more than that. Shocks, springs, ride quality and looks are just a couple items different from a regular 250. Test drove both the 7.3 and the diesel. I'll be getting the diesel. The 7.3 was really good but it personally felt like a step down in power from my raptor. Diesel felt comparable with all the torque. It actually rode way smoother than I expected for a heavy duty. I was impressed. Unlike my truck I'm happy it has wireless charging. About time.

If you can handle the size and MPG, I think it’d be an awesome truck. I would love it but can’t fit it in my garage.

My issue is I dont want a crew cab short bed which is the only cab and bed combination available. Plan to order supercab shortbed 7.3 and visit Carli.

In my case the tremor is a good compromise to where I don't feel I have to do any modifications to it. I want my factory warranty and no questions about the dealership performing the warranty work. I have great luck with all my vehicles 😁.
This.

This truck has everything I would want to do to a truck and it comes with a warranty. Add a shell to it and I'd be done. MPG wont be to much of an issue for me I don't think.

I'd go with the 7.3 over the diesel because I don't really want or need a diesel. Getting a brand new untested engine makes me a bit nervous tho.

What I want is a truck that will do everything for me and my growing family.

I'm curious what the spec are on the F150 you're leasing currently. I'm assuming it's a newer model, since you're leasing.

Do you find anything lacking currently? Hauling or towing? Interior shouldn't matter, since the Super Duty has the same cabin.

2018 F-150 STX 2.7L 2WD extended cab. The truck in my Avatar finally pooped on me after 250k and the local ford dealer had an ad for $189 a month for 2 years with 4k down. It was too good to pass up so I jumped on it.
I have towed with it numerous times, hauled loads to the dump and gone camping and its a fantastic truck. And its fast as hell for a truck. The 10 speed is amazing, too. Reason I want a 2020 instead of a 19 F250 is for the 10 speed.

If I cant get the deal I want on a tremor I will 100% go for an 18 or newer F150 FX4.

You said growing family, so I'm assuming you'll jump to a Super Crew as well.

Pricing will be a factor (unless that's not an issue for you). Tremor will probably not be discounted as much, and it's more expensive to start with. If I price one out, it's at least $55k with essentially no options other than the Tremor package.

F150 XLT with FX4 would be $8k less MSRP, but most likely around $40k purchase price. If buying used, most likely in the mid $30k's.

It sounds like the 1/2 ton is working for you. I'd stick with an F150. XL, rear locker, STX package, 36 gal tank. $33k. Done.

As much as I'd love a Tremor, I could get a decently equipped F150 for about 20K less. Apples to oranges? Maybe. I kinda wish you could get a Tremor with the 6.2 and 10 speed too....
