The 2022 Ford Maverick is offered in three extensive trim levels namely: XL, XLT, and the top-tier Lariat. And for people who’ve been riding other pickup trucks from Ford would’ve been familiar with Ford’s typical trim nomenclature. So, the base trim is equipped with just the right amount of features like the Cloth upholstery, Power windows, and 8-inch touchscreen to name a few. But it has the liberty to upgrade with most of the upper trim level stuff. While the XLT variant adds some features like Upgraded upholstery and cruise control on top of the standard gear.

Since the Ford Maverick isn’t designed to be your typical work-horse, we recommend going for the XLT with AWD and Hybrid powertrain as it has all the essential features and ample amount of performance attributes. But if you’re more on the utility-oriented side, we recommend optioning up with the 4K Tow Package that offers 4000 pounds of Towing capacity.

Release date

At the moment, Ford didn’t reveal the exact launch date but mentioned that it would go on sale starting this fall. It is being manufactured at Hermosillo Assembly, Mexico.2022 Ford Maverick hybrid Engine and Performance

As per the reports and company claims, it is quite evident that the Ford Maverick offers crisp and agile handling thanks to its compact body, it is highly maneuverable on the cityscapes while sustaining comfort even with five passengers on board. The Maverick offers a Towing capacity of 2000 lbs which seems underpowered but is still sufficient enough for people to get their basic utility-oriented jobs done. Although the Hyundai Santa Cruz which was unveiled a few weeks ago offers more performance grunt and towing capabilities. While the Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline are the most powerful vehicles with enormous functionality. 2022 Ford Maverick hybrid Fuel Economy

This is one segment where the Maverick has hit it out of the ball-park. Ford is yet to announce the exact fuel estimates for the EcoBoost engine while we have the Hybrid engine estimates and they are outstanding for a pickup truck. It offers a mileage of 37 mpg in the combined use case with 40 mpg in the city roads and 33 mpg on the highways which is evident through the company’s official brochure. We should wait a few more weeks for the practical usage and on-road testing to see the true efficiency of this Hybrid engine.
