The 2022 Ford Maverick is a fantastic compact truck that’ll suit many applications. This competitively priced, fuel-efficient truck is a vehicle that must be taken seriously by anyone looking to buy a truck.
About This Model
The name Maverick was used once before by Ford in the 1970s for a small compact car, but the moniker fits this compact truck much better. The Maverick is based on the chassis of Ford’s small SUV, the Escape. Its compact size slots it below the Ranger in Ford’s truck lineup.
The 2022 Ford Maverick Spruce Grove is available in three trim levels. These are the XL, XLT, and the Lariat.
The XL and XLT trim come either with Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine running on gas or an economical new hybrid. The hybrid pairs the standard 2.5L four-cylinder gas-powered engine with an electric motor producing a combined 191 hp.
The Lariat doesn’t offer a hybrid option. It has a 2.0L EcoBoost gas-powered engine coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel consumption estimates for the hybrid are a stunning 6.3 L/100km, combining city and highway driving.
The Hybrid trims offer a choice of all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive, but the gas-powered models only come with all-wheel drive.
All models offer Ford’s Co-Pilot360 package. This brings driver aids such as rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warnings, lane assist, and blind-spot monitoring.
The interior has few frills, but the seats are comfortable, and the controls are easy to find and use. A 20.32cm touchscreen manages all the standard features, including a Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.
This compact truck may be small, but it’s not a city runabout. The Maverick has an astonishing number of storage compartments. Any technician will be thrilled with the number of cubby-hole storage compartments found all over the vehicle. There’s ample storage under the rear seats, and the large centre console has useful dividers to keep things in place. The storage in the doors can hold a large water bottle.
The Maverick has impressive towing figures of just over 1,800 kg and a payload of almost 700 kg. The Maverick is set up for towing in the factory and comes with both four and seven-pin connectors and an integrated trailer brake controller.
The 2022 Ford Maverick is very competitively priced. The XL Hybrid has an MSRP of $27,750, and the XLT Hybrid starts at $30,350.
The gas-powered XL comes in at $29,350, with the XLT at $31,950 and the Lariat at $35,400.
This compact pick-up is no powder-puff for running around town. It’s a serious truck for businesses and individuals that don’t need anything the size of the Ranger or F-150. This truck will haul and tow easily, just at a small size and a lower price.
The entry price of the Ford Maverick Spruce Grove, coupled with its hybrid fuel economy, makes this a very appealing vehicle.
