The Hybrid Engine Comes Standard on This Compact Pickup Truck from Your Local Ford Dealer

Ford Motor Company has released some of the most groundbreaking new vehicles in the past year, and the 2022 Ford Maverick is no exception. This fuel-efficient, eco-friendly truck borrows its moniker from a 1970s car, but it’s truly a pioneer in its own right.

The Maverick, independent from the Ford F-150, is the first standard fully hybrid pickup to be made available for sale in the United States, including here at Zeck Ford in Itasca, Texas.

Bearing Ford’s Blue Oval on the grille and coming from a lengthy pedigree of the most popular trucks on the road, we think it’s safe to say the Maverick is doing to be very, very good.

Ford Maverick Engine and Basic Information

The 2022 Ford Maverick shares the same chassis as the Bronco Sport, the smaller version of the revival Bronco SUV, making the Maverick even smaller than today’s Ford Ranger and much more like previous model years of Ford’s mid-size pickup truck.

The Maverick comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and continuously variable transmission. The truck can achieve a combined 191 horsepower.

Also standard is front-wheel drive, a four-door crew cab, and a 4.5-foot truck bed.

For buyers looking for a more traditional powertrain, Ford is offering an optional nonhybrid turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 Ecoboost engine and an option for all-wheel drive. This truck version can achieve 250 horsepower with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Environmental Protection Agency has yet to release data on fuel efficiency for the Maverick, but early Ford reports indicate that the hybrid truck can get about 40 miles per gallon in the city and even more for highway driving.

Ford Maverick Trim Levels Come Straight from the F-150

It might be a bit confusing to keep straight all the new truck models Ford has announced this year, one thing that won’t be confusing is the trim levels, which are all borrowed straight from the Ford F-150.

The Maverick comes in just three trim levels: the XL, XLT, and the Lariat. The XL is a basic truck with a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, adjustable lumbar support on the front seats, audio controls on the steering wheel, and keyless entry.

The XLT adds cruise control, premium 17-inch aluminum wheels, a power-locking tailgate, and more. The Lariat includes dual-zone climate control, power front seats, ambient interior lighting, and more.

A 12-volt power point in the truck bed is standard on all Maverick strucks, as is the 8-inch touchscreen Ford SYNC infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and standard automated emergency braking. The cab offers plenty of storage and a wi-fi hotspot.

If it’s upgrades you want, it’s upgrades you’ll get! Choose from a 110-volt outlet in the truck bed, satellite radio capabilities, wireless smartphone charging, a lane departure warning system, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo.

Hybrid Truck Towing and Payload

Due to its diminutive size, you can’t expect the 2022 Ford Maverick to tow heavy loads. The base powertrain offers 1,500 pounds of payload capacity and 2,000 pounds of towing, neither of which exceed the capabilities of a crossover SUV and some powerful sedans.

You can, however, add a reasonable $745 tow package, which increases the truck’s towing capacity to 4,000 pounds. (If that isn’t enough for you, then you might not want to wait on the Maverick; the hybrid 2021 Ford F-150 or the new all-electric Ford Lightning are probably better options.)

The standard 4.5-foot bed is enough for most people, and the reasonable purchase price – starting at just $20,000 – means you aren’t forking over tons of money on a truck that’s still capable of carrying furniture and materials for home renovation projects.

The 2022 Ford Maverick Comes with Ford’s Standard New Truck Warranty

If you buy a new Ford Maverick from our Ford dealership in Itasca, Texas – or anywhere else – you’ll get Ford’s standard warranty package, which includes:

  • A limited warranty covering three years or 36,000 miles on the odometer, whichever comes first.
  • A powertrain warranty that covers five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Unique to Ford’s hybrid offerings is a hybrid component warranty that covers eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
