Ford has always been known for big, heavy duty trucks capable of tackling just about any job that its given. And while the power and utility is well suited for job sites, towing and some serious heavy lifting, for the average weekend warrior, it can almost be too much. That’s where the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick comes in.
Slotting below the Ranger and the F-150, the Maverick takes the versatility and everything that we love about the long-running F-150 and scales it back to a more manageable size. This size also allows for a hybrid option that gives the compact pickup some impressive numbers in the fuel economy department.
While you’ll typically find no less than six cylinders in larger varieties of a Ford pickup, the Maverick tops out at four. It’s main power driver is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that is married with an electric motor to help save on trips to the pump. Better yet, the electric motor is not just an added option – it’s standard.
That’s right. The first-ever standard hybrid powertrain on a pickup. It’s just one of many pickup stereotypes that the Maverick is absolutely shattering. When working in tandem, the engine and motor achieve an EPA-estimated 37 mpg combined rating with 42 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
The higher city rating make the Maverick a practical option for those who stay close to home, but who need something more to fit their lifestyle. With the combined rating, the Ford Maverick hybrid is expected to squeeze as many as 500 miles out of a single tank of gas. Not bad for a pickup if you ask us.
Inside, you’ll find seats for as many as five passengers, including a full-sized second row to ensure that even your long-legged friends don’t have to feel crammed in the back. There are also plenty of storage compartments tucked in the doors and under the back seat to help you store more and keep valuable items out of sight.
To keep you entertained, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to connect your device for music, weather, calls and everything else you need. The impressive SYNC 3 system takes interior entertainment even one step further, allowing you to control all aspects of the Maverick through touch or by voice.
The Ford Maverick is undoubtedly a trend setter, and it won’t be long before the Maverick is filling roads and home improvement stores here in Gainesville and across Texas.
