Wanna ride shotgun with GRM?

Welcome to this week’s test vehicle,  a 2024 Ford Maverick Lariat Tremor.

The "Tremor," of course, refers to the off-road package that adds an "off-road tuned suspension" as well as additional ride height. All-terrain tires and plenty of orange accents get tacked on, too.

As a top-trim Lariat, our Maverick tester carries an MSRP of $34,855. Add on the $3495 Tremor package and nearly $200 in splash guards, and we are left with a total price of $38,530–not including destination and delivery.

A dial transmission select and an electronic E-Brake.

Don't like.

I'm not a fan of electric e-brake then I thought how as my Silverado got older I'd push that peddle further to hold it on my slight incline driveway.  

Then my elderly wife (LOL) and my skinny daughter struggled pushing the foot  e-brake in order to move my truck.  Electric is designed for them.

Those smoked headlight reflectors look SO much better than the chrome standard ones. That plus the other minor tweaks take the exterior from something that does nothing for me to a pretty good looking little trucklet. 

Aren't these strut suspension all the way around? Is the taller suspension actually longer travel (better ride quality?) or is it just taller like those strut spacer leveling kits?

Where is rest of the story?  Driving impressions? Handling?  How's that AWD Turbo set up?

In reply to Datsun240ZGuy :

My 2016 Mustang manual w/ sport pkg parking brake was less&less effective. Turned out I needed rear calipers for $800, fortunately on extended warrantee. The parking brakes are internal to the calipers and just make them more expensive parts!

4000 lbs with the right options.

Lariat/Tremor? That do 4k, or less?

Officially only 2k, though it has a lot of the functional equipment from the 4k tow package so the reality is probably somewhere in the middle.
