My favorite trucks are ones that can haul stuff, are easy to park, decent on gas, and ideally, can annihilate tires when I want them to. Meet the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, which sounds like it can do all of those things.

The Tremor is basically a baby performance F-150. I say "baby," because it only comes in short cab, short wheelbase form. It's not a Ranger, but it's about as small as Ford trucks get these days.

And it sounds like it's a blast to drive too. The Tremor packs the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque that you can get in other F-150s, but it has a 4.10 rear axle, the shortest final drive ratio the F-150 offers, for strong acceleration and the occasional truck burnout.

Yeah, just like that.

Other goodies include a floor mounted shifter (yay!) 20-inch black wheels, HID lamps and an exterior graphics package. You can get it in two- or four-wheel drive.

It may not be a Raptor, or a Lightning, but it's a small and affordable performance truck with a turbo engine. I could definitely get behind this.

Its no Lightning but I'm sure the market will take it.

Now, let SVT shove the 5.8L from the GT500 into one of these and let the rear tires cry.
