Maverick Hybrid orders will not be fulfilled in the near future.
As well, the Trailer Towing package is no longer offered with the Hybrid powertrain.
Again, the 2022 Ford Maverick small pickup is, without a doubt, one of 2021’s breakout products. With more than 100,000 pre-orders, the Maverick has proven that consumers are very much on board with the idea of a smaller truck. Unfortunately, many of these hand-raisers may find out that they won’t get what they want.
The issues are directly related to the Hybrid version of the 2022 Ford Maverick. This base powertrain configuration brought with it the promise of impressive fuel efficiencies, a low price point, and few real compromises. Now, the “miracle” small truck might not happen for a while.
Specifically, according to CarBuzz, orders for the Hybrid will not be selected for production scheduling. In other words, if you ordered one, your delivery will be delayed by an unknown amount of time. As well, if you were hoping to tow something with your 2022 Maverick Hybrid, that won’t happen either.
There’s no explanation as to why Ford’s come to this decision. The ongoing chip shortage could be a reason. Another related possible explanation is that Ford prefers to assemble EcoBoost models which are more expensive and therefore likely more profitable.
The bottom line is that it’s unclear as to how long it will be before Maverick Hybrid resumes. And, if the towing package will once again be offered with the vehicle in the future.
