2022 Ford Maverick EcoBoost Fuel Consumption Ratings Revealed

The more powerful and capable EcoBoost Ford Maverick will also be quite efficient

  • The Maverick is shaping up to be an important player in the small truck segment.

  • The base model features a hybrid powertrain and is extremely fuel-efficient.

If we were to name a few breakout new models for 2021 so far, the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick would make the top 5 with ease. Ford’s new small truck has generated an enormous amount of interest for a number of reasons including the base hybrid powertrain and its efficiency. Now, we’ve learned that the optional EcoBoost engine will also be fuel miserly.

The 2022 Ford Maverick Starts At $25,900 In Canada

The very affordable truck, both in the US and Canada, will surely prove to be successful thanks to its design and capabilities. Ford revealed early on that the standard Maverick powertrain will be a hybrid and deliver up to 40 mpg in the right conditions. The optional turbocharged EcoBoost 2.0-litre engine, we now know, will return 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway according to Road Show.

The combined average of 25 mpg is quite good considering that the AWD EcoBoost Maverick can tow up to 4,000 lbs thanks to its 250 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque. This rating makes it the most fuel-efficient small pickup in the segment, besting the recently introduced Hyundai Santa Cruz by 2 mpg.
