The Ford Maverick 2022 is 68.7 inches but 4.6 inches lower than the Ranger. At 6.9 inches shy of the F-150, above the roof is visible. It is, after all, built on Ford’s C2 modular platform which is shared with the Escape and Bronco Sport. However, for such a little pickup, it has a big personality.
Ford Maverick – Hybrid System
The Ford Maverick has a standard powertrain which is a hybrid system. It has a 2.5-liter engine and electric motor that makes it a total of 191 horsepower 155-pound-feet of torque. This hybrid is only available with front-wheel drive. Yet it is an efficiency darling with a targeted fuel economy rating of 40 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. In fact, the hybrid is rating for a 1,500-pound payload and 2,000 pounds of towing.
The Maverick has a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. That would earn you a total of 250 horsepower. Plus 277 pound-feet of torque. It also shares the hybrid’s 1,500-pound payload. Now it can tow up to 4,000 pounds with the available tow package of $745. Moreover, it does away with a continuously variable transmission. This would be in favor of an eight-speed automatic. Thus choosing the EcoBoost would also mean you can opt for all-wheel drive. It can be swapping for the independent torsion beam rear suspension for a multi-link setup.
Regardless of the powertrain, it can be had in one of three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. In fact, the base XL trim starts at $21,490 (including $1,495 in destination fees) for the hybrid. Also, the EcoBoost adds $1,085 across trim levels, while all-wheel drive adds an additional $3,305. Then, finally, for those who want to venture further off the beaten path, the all-wheel-drive Maverick XLT and Lariat trims offer the FX4 package ($800) with all-terrain tires. It comes with a specially tuned suspension also extra underbody protection, plus Mud/Rut and Sand drive modes, as well as hill descent control. The fully loaded Lariat with EcoBoost, all-wheel drive, FX4 package, 4K tow package, Ford Co-Pilot360, and the Lariat Luxury package does ring in at $35,715.
