Ford Maverick 2022: A Vehicle for All Rides
Affordable Price Range
The Maverick XL, or the lowest trim in the model, is Ford’s cheapest truck in the market. It’s compact, with a lot of space to haul big payloads, compared to all sedans and SUVs in the same price range. Thus, making it an excellent option for first-time buyers. And it can go well against other competitive pickup trucks in the category, like the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz.
The Maverick comes with a familiar yet modernized look, banking on the front that combines sophistication and functionality, which looks stellar, especially for its price point.
The Maverick is a fuel-efficient vehicle with a 5.9-litre fuel consumption per 100 kilometres. The standard payload capacity of this truck is 1,500 pounds, and its base towing capacity is 2,000 pounds. However, Ford doesn’t want to limit you, with an option to upgrade the truck’s towing capacity to 4,000 pounds. Additionally, the Maverick offers smart storage solutions for different types of payloads.
This compact pickup truck is easy to manoeuvre, even in tight spaces, thanks to its relatively small size. So first-time buyers won’t feel intimidated by their vehicle as they drive.
Finally, the Maverick offers helpful tech like an eight-inch Bluetooth touchscreen infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Maverick also has an in-vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so you stay connected wherever you are or send that urgent email, even if you’re parked somewhere out-of-town.
All trims of the Ford Maverick come with a full Hybrid Engine, the first pickup truck model to offer this feature in Canada. Having such an engine means aside from the standard 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, the vehicle is also powered by an electric motor to produce a total of 191 horsepower, with a zero-to-sixty in five to seven seconds. You can also get this vehicle in a more powerful 2.0-litre EcoBoost option.
The Maverick has a front-wheel drive with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). And to carry a heavy payload, the Maverick is built with a stiff suspension to withstand a rough ride while taking good care of your stuff.
Powered for Your Adventure
Every Maverick trim comes with two standard pre-wired 12-volt electrical leads in the bed. You also get a hook-up for LED lights, a mini-fridge, and even a small TV. So this vehicle allows you to go on an adventure entirely, even on your first drive.
A Maverick for Every Driver
The Ford Maverick 2022 is available in four trims: the Maverick XL, Maverick XLT, Maverick Lariat, and the Maverick Lariat First Edition. All variants differ in tech, colour, and functionality, which means there is a Maverick for every driver and every type of adventure.
