Have you ever wanted to combine the efficiency and affordability of a commuter car with the capability of a pickup truck? Maybe it’s time you consider a compact pickup truck like the 2022 Ford Maverick. Ford’s new compact pickup truck brings together compact convenience, affordability, and top-notch performance in a way we’ve never seen before. This new vehicle comes with a budget-friendly MSRP, and the savings keep on going with the hybrid engine.
If you wish your sedan had a bigger cargo area or your pickup truck got better gas mileage (or was more affordable in the first place), you are going to love Ford’s new Maverick. This compact pickup is definitely going to take the world by storm. In fact, it already has!
Now the only thing to ask yourself is, will the 2022 Ford Maverick fit into your driveway and lifestyle. What are you looking for in a vehicle, and will Ford’s new 2022 Maverick meet these needs and expectations for you? Are you ready to take a closer look at the 2022 Maverick?
As far as fuel efficiency goes, the 2022 Ford Maverick is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road––especially when you consider the fact that it is a pickup truck. This compact pickup truck is actually a hybrid truck which is why drivers can get such good gas mileage. When you drive home the 2022 Maverick, you can expect to get 40 MPG in the city or 33 MPG on the highway. If you’re a city driver, this is going to be the perfect pickup truck for you.
What kind of range does the Ford Maverick get? This hybrid has a range of up to 500 miles. In addition to the hybrid capabilities, you’ll get a fuel tank capacity of 13.8 gallons, meaning you’ll have a long way to go before you need to worry about running out of fuel or power. If you want your truck to be able to have AWD for overlanding or off-roading adventures, the EcoBoost engine comes with an AWD capability. Or, if you prefer to keep fuel economy as high as possible and you only plan on driving in the city or on paved roads, the FWD option with the smaller engine should serve you well.
Just because you’re getting the fuel efficiency of a compact commuter car doesn’t mean you’ll be sacrificing performance and capability. The 2022 Ford Maverick has plenty of bragging rights when it comes to performance, and you’ll definitely be getting some pickup truck experiences in this bad boy. To begin with, when you drive home the 2022 Maverick, you’ll be getting a towing capability of up to 4,000 lbs. While that may not seem like much when you compare it to Ford’s bigger pickup trucks, such as the F-150, F-250, and F-350 vehicles, that’s certainly more than you can expect to get when you buy a compact SUV.
The Ford Maverick is not just a commuter vehicle, even though it gets commuter-friendly gas mileage. You’ll also be able to tow small trailers, making this the perfect vehicle for the hobby home improvement enthusiast or the hobby yard work enthusiast. This vehicle is also perfect for weekends at the lake or in the mountains, as 4,000 lbs is more than enough to carry around plenty of ATVs, smaller boats, and more. Your lifestyle adventures will not be lacking when you drive a Maverick.
Speaking of pickup truck capabilities, have you seen the tailgate on the 2022 Ford Maverick? The Maverick comes equipped with a pretty impressive tailgate, and this thing is about as user-friendly as a truck tailgate could possibly get. To begin with, the bed itself is 4.5 ft long, making it big enough to tote around plenty of gear, tools, and other random necessities. The tailgate itself has multiple positions that make it easy to load and unload just about anything you could imagine.
The tailgate can open all the way to sit in a flat position for the biggest of items, or the tailgate can sit and lock in a midway position that securely holds any awkwardly-shaped pieces of equipment. No longer will you need to leave the tailgate hanging all the way open for one long stick that you then have to figure out how to keep from sliding up and down. Just lock your tailgate in a midway position, tie down your load, and you’re good to go!
While you’re at it, you can expect to be able to load up your Maverick with just about anything you like. The 2022 Maverick has a payload capability of 1,500 lbs making it strong enough to carry around mulch, concrete, bricks, outdoor adventure toys, or whatever else your heart desires. You’ll be amazed at what this compact pickup truck is capable of.
One of the coolest parts about the new 2022 Maverick is the plug-in bed. The bed of the Maverick comes with a spot to plug in anything you could need for some projects or tailgating. Whether you need to run a miniature generator, fill up an air mattress, charge a drill’s battery, or power a backyard movie projector, the 2022 Ford Maverick has got you covered. The rear seats also have some pretty cool capabilities. Besides being spacious and comfortable in the first place, the back row seats completely lift up to reveal a convenient storage area. Use this area for items you want to keep safe from the elements or from prying eyes.
The cockpit comes with a driver’s seat that has an eight-way power adjuster. The cockpit also has the option of coming with an 8-inch infotainment display center as well as two 12V power outlets, so you’ll never be lacking in power again. There is also plenty of storage space in the cockpit area, including side door pockets and shelves. In fact, the side door is capable of storing up to a 1.5L water bottle; you can take your favorite drink with you everywhere you go without having to worry about spilling.
The unique features don’t just end with interior conveniences. When you bring home the 2022 Ford Maverick, you will also have the option of using some pretty stellar driving modes. When you opt for the off-road adventure package, you’ll be able to switch between drive modes such as normal (for pavement and city driving), tow/haul (for towing around trailers and toys), slippery (for wet and otherwise dangerous road and off-road conditions), mud and ruts (for off-roading adventures that might otherwise leave you stuck in muddy ditches), and sand mode (for terrain that is difficult to keep grip and traction on). Keep in mind when you get a Maverick with an off-roading package, you’ll need the bigger 2.0 L EcoBoost engine rather than the standard hybrid engine.
The back of the Maverick has the option of adding in a manual sliding window so you can get some extra airflow or even extend the length of your bed for, particularly long and narrow items. Or if you’ve got people sitting in the bed, say for a drive-in movie, you’ll be able to open this window to easily hear anybody in the cab or even the stereo system. Or when you’re using the bed for towing and hauling, the bed itself comes with no less than ten anchor points, two of which slide and lock for even more securing abilities. You’ll never have to worry about losing your gear while driving down the road again.
