Hybrid version order books to reopen by mid-2022 for 2023 model year.
The Maverick Hybrid starts at $25,900 in Canada.
The Hybrid’s powertrain is highly efficient capable of averaging as little as 6,4L/100 km.
The Ford Maverick has become a runaway hit. Priced right with plenty of capability and features, the Maverick can be almost anything to anyone. Urbanites, field workers, and do-it-yourselfers will enjoy the small truck’s functionality and performance. And let’s not forget the starting price for the base Hybrid version.
The Maverick Hybrid’s success is such that, well, it’s no longer available. All slots for the 2022 model have been filed and as such, can no longer be ordered. Ford predicted that all slots would be filled by early November, but the global chip shortage forced the Blue Oval to idle the assembly line in mid-October. What’s more, Ford announced right around the same time that deliveries were to be delayed until January 2022 because of truck emissions certifications.
“Due to high demand, we are now fully reserved on Maverick Hybrid,” Dawn McKenzie, Ford’s truck communications manager, as reported by CarsDirect. “Ordering will reopen next Summer for the 2023 model year.”
As it stands, those interested in a new Ford Maverick Hybrid will have to wait a long time to put their name on the want list. When these consumers will actually take delivery of their new 2023 Ford Maverick is another question altogether. Let’s not forget that the chip shortage is still ongoing, among other supply chain issues.
