The all-new 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid pickup – the first standard hybrid pickup in America – is now officially America’s most fuel-efficient hybrid pickup with an estimated rating of 17.8 kilometres per litre of fuel.
The 2.5-litre hybrid has an estimated rating of 15.7 km/l combined, 14 km/l on highways and an estimated range of more than 804 km on a single tank of fuel.
“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 17.8 km/l city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter 4-cylinder automatic gasoline engine’s 16 km/l.”
“At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects,” said Chris Mazur, Ford Maverick chief engineer.
The new Ford Maverick uses Ford’s innovative fourth-generation hybrid propulsion system, which includes an all-new 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine and electronic continuously variable transmission. Its briefcase-size, liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery is packaged smartly below the second-row seats rather than occupying a significant portion of the cargo area.
The Maverick Hybrid is expected to start shipping in December with the first customer deliveries expected in January 2022 so required state and federal emissions certification can be completed.
Due to high demand, all Maverick Hybrid production for the 2022 model year is expected to be fully reserved by early November. Once all 2022 Maverick Hybrids have been reserved, ordering for Maverick Hybrid will close until reopening next summer.
Customers are still able to place orders for Maverick with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which is already on sale and off to a fast start with more on their way to dealers and customers nationwide.
According to Ford, the new Maverick EcoBoost pickup truck is off to a fast start with the first customers taking delivery of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost version in September and more on their way to dealers and customers nationwide.
Whether the Maverick will be sold in our part of the world remains unknown, but our guess is that it won’t as we already have the Ford Ranger which is currently doing quite well for the brand in Malaysia.
