I've noticed that a lot of threads revolve around problems or Tremor dislikes. I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread where we could collectively talk about the things we love about our Super Trucks. ?

I'll start by saying years ago I wished Ford would design a super truck. One that was all the things we would try to build into our modest rides back in the day. Great load and tow capacity, a comfortable interior with a nice sound system, good ground clearance and a true off road four wheel drive system, and lastly a strong engine and drivetrain. I dreamed as a young man of putting together a truck with all the features and just making it last "forever" ?. Well it took a lot of years but I think Ford is getting very close to the dream truck many of us had in mind years ago. I'm just glad I lived long enough to see it and was able to afford one when it came along. Now at night while I'm at work I walk out occasionally in the middle of my shift and check on the old Girl out in the parking lot, get in and start her up just to make sure she's OK out there while she's waiting on me. ?

Don't forget to get a hot work permit if she's parked inside the unit when you start her up!
 
Another thing I love is the 7.3 Godzilla/10 speed combo. I remember years ago how hard it was to start some of the old big blocks. My 396 and my 460 would crank what seemed like endlessly before firing up. Really hot or cold added even more dynamic to the "starting sequence" ? This thing fires up in an instance, even from the app.

I like the way the tranny shifts under power and heavy acceleration. Smooth and instant, always in the power band. I'm amazed every time I merge onto the interstate how quickly I'm up to 85-90 mph and it feels like I'm doing 60. Knowing what I've experienced in my life with trucks and engines of old, this thing is a dream machine. That's partly why I don't have too much trouble with the price, since everything is so refined and functional. It's hard to list all the features that weren't even thought of on my 1982 6.9 diesel 4 spd custom cab. For example we actually go for rides regularly just for the heated massage therapy. ? Isn't this crazy! ?

First of all, I love having a truck, in my area, that most don't have…yet!

Second, I love the “brotherhood” that the Ford Super Duty Tremor has produced. Every Tremor that I have seen since I’ve had mine, has acknowledged mine. I love that. There’s a kindredship there that no one else realizes.

Those are my opinions.

I will also say that I just love having an awesome truck, and I’ve owned many trucks over the years. Cheers all!

Edit: I’ve had no issues whatsoever with my truck.
 
What I love most is that it's allowed me to have no regrets for selling my old Fords. I had my previous F250 4x4 for 33 years. It was BADASS, and trust me, it was not easy for me to let go of it. But this TREMOR is the Highboy of the 21st century! Plus, it has Cadillac Comfort, and it will tow everything I used to haul with my old F600. I already feel that personal connection that a human can get with a vehicle. I reckon I'll have this truck 30 years too, if I make it that far....?
 
Hands down "aesthetic appeal" IMO best looking truck on the road!?
Personally believe, my 2005 Super Duty was the best looking Ford truck. Never totally fell in love with the 2011-16 Super Duty, even though I owned a 2015. However, my Tremor ranks a very close 2nd to my '05. My ultimate Super Duty would be my 2005, with the 6.7L powertrain. Opps, including the cooled seats, heated steering wheel, & ultimate backup camera system.
 
I’m loving the features of the Platinum trim package. I love that I drive to Vegas going 85 on cruise control and got 21+ MPG when it was 112 degrees outside.

I love that when returning from Vegas there was a 2 hour traffic jam, plus the AG checkpoint and I drove from Jean to California through the desert.

I had to drive with some caution vs. my 2019 Raptor I traded in. Although I loved that Raptor for its off-road radness,

I’m stoked on the Tremor and no regrets.
 
As mentioned by someone earlier I really love the adaptive cruise control. Whereas I would never have used cruise control in congested traffic, it's the way to go in congested interstate traffic. Pick the lane with the speed you would like to drive, set the cruise and let the traffic pull you through down the interstate. :LOL: There's a number of other features as well, connectivity for music streaming, did I mention the heated/cooled/massaging seats! Many opt for no moon roof but I love mine. I know they are a gamble regarding leaks but I guess I got lucky. I love the power sliding rear window and the way I get a backdraft through the cab when it's open. I am amazed by the LED headlights and the rest of the LEDs as well. I just love this truck! :cool:?

I’ve only had the truck 36 hours. But so far, I love the 1050 foot pounds of torque!!!!
It's like driving a locomotive isn't it! Take care of her and she'll take care of you. ? ?:cool:
