Ford already dominates the truck market with America’s bestselling pickup, the F-Series, as well as the Ranger. So, what’s next for Ford’s truck lineup? The all-new 2022 Ford Maverick, which you can learn more about below.
The 2022 Ford Maverick is a capable compact truck with a surprising amount of power given its size. The new Ford truck is not just the first pickup to come standard with a hybrid engine, it’s also the only standard hybrid pickup on the market. The Maverick’s standard 2.5-liter full hybrid powertrain is also paired with a continuously variable transmission that makes for a smooth drive and offers extra efficiency. The Maverick’s hybrid engine has a standard payload capacity of 1,500 pounds, and can tow up to 2,000 pounds. When equipped with the upgraded 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine and Trailer Tow Package, however, the Maverick can tow as much as 4,000 pounds. The EcoBoost® engine is capable of producing 277 lb-ft of torque and has an output of 250 horsepower, which gives this compact truck some serious teeth.
The biggest perk of owning a compact truck is its flexibility. Most people don’t need a truck that can haul horse trailers, but they do need something that is easy-to-drive and can accommodate weekend projects. The Maverick fits the bill perfectly with its 4.5-foot bed that can help you haul recreational equipment to the lake, bikes to the trail, or plants home for your next landscaping project. The compact truck offers a standard multi-position tailgate that can be customized to open half-way to help you haul longer materials such a lumber without worrying about it falling out. You can even utilize the gate’s tie downs as bottle openers for your next tailgate party or use lumber as a divider thanks to the FLEXBED™’s divider notches.
Whether you’re a small business owner that needs a flexible vehicle for work or a hobbyist with a family, you deserve a pickup that is going to be comfortable for commuting and road trips alike. The 2022 Ford Maverick offers the comfort of a five-seater SUV with the utility of a pickup, making the compact truck a perfect family vehicle. The Maverick has plenty of leg room, and even more interior storage thanks to its rear under-seat storage compartments and door-pocket storage big enough to fit laptops, tablets, and 1.5-liter water bottles.
By far, the most advanced feature of the Ford Maverick is its hybrid engine that makes it the most fuel-efficient pickup in America. The hybrid pickup gets a targeted EPA-estimated 40 MPG in the city and offers an anticipated 500-mile range perfect for road trips.* The Maverick’s interior is also highly-advanced thanks to its cutting-edge SYNC® 3 infotainment system. This system lets you mirror your smartphone into the new Ford truck’s touch-screen display so you can stream music, call clients, or get directions to the campsite. The Maverick’s LARIAT trim also comes with an available eight-speaker Bang & Olufsen® sound system that will help you erase commuter blues when you rock out to your favorite playlist on the way home.
In addition to its flexible storage, comfortable seating, and gas-saving efficiency, the Maverick is a perfect family vehicle because it addresses ever parent’s biggest concern: safety. The hybrid pickup comes standard with many features that can help you feel safer on the road with your loved ones, including a Rear-View Camera, Pedestrian Detection, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Auto High-Beam Headlamps. You can also equip your Maverick with several other advanced safety features for additional peace of mind. The optional Lane-Keeping System warns you when you stray from your lane, while Adaptive Cruise Control automatically slows the flexible pickup down when using cruise control if traffic slows ahead.
