Now is Your Last Chance to Buy a Ford Maverick Hybrid for a Few Months

If you want a hybrid Ford Maverick, now is the time to buy it

  • The total production run for 2022 is almost fully reserved

  • Orders will close in early November and they will reopen next summer

  • The Maverick is the only compact pickup offered in hybrid form

The Maverick is the new compact pickup from Ford that appeals to many people due to its manageable size, its low starting price and its class exclusive hybrid powertrain.

Since demand is very strong and Ford is struggling to reach its production capacity due to the shortage of capacitors, few Maverick hybrid models remain available for the 2022 model year.

The Maverick hybrid is powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor that drives the front wheels. This gives the truck 191 horsepower and a fuel economy of 6,4L/100 km, which is the best figure for any small truck.

Apart from the fuel economy, the other reason that makes the hybrid powertrain very popular is that it is offered as standard on the base model.

Starting at $25,900 in Canada and $19,995, the hybrid Maverick is not only the cheapest model of the Maverick, it is also the cheapest pickup truck on the market, which makes it interesting to many first-time truck buyers that want a more practical vehicle to use in light duty applications.

Because demand is strong, almost every Maverick hybrid pickup planned to be built for the 2022 model are already reserved, meaning Ford will close the order books in early November and they will only reopen next summer, for the 2023 model year.

Other Maverick models powered by the 2.0L EcoBoost engine are less popular, so they will still be available to order.

The first Maverick hybrids are due to reach customers in January.
