Did you know the Ford Maverick was a compact sedan manufactured in the 1970s? Well, these days that nameplate belongs to a pickup truck that is rapidly growing in popularity since its introduction for the 2022 model year. Last year just over 74,000 units were sold, but after six months this year nearly 42,500 have already been sold – just to give you a taste of how popular this pickup truck is. It has been a wakeup call to the industry as a whole that there is a demand for compact pickup trucks here in America, and we’re stoked to see what else might be introduced soon. For now, we’re simply stoked to offer the 2023 Ford Maverick right here in Fort Scott, Kansas.
The Ford Maverick is available with two different powertrain options, the standard being a 2.5L Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder hybrid powertrain. This standard option is capable of generating 191 horsepower alongside 155 pound-feet of torque while achieving 40 miles per gallon through the city. Looking for more capability? Opt for the 2.0L EcoBoost engine that can deliver 250 hp and 277 lb-ft. of torque.
Even though the Ford Maverick is considerably smaller than the Ford F-150 or F-250, or even the Ranger, it’s still a pickup truck. That means a truck bed that can accommodate a payload and the capability to trailer if and when you need to. The standard Maverick can haul up to 1,500 pounds in its bed while towing up to an additional 2,000 lbs. Equipping the more powerful engine with the 4K Tow Package doubles this capacity.
In addition to its impressive power, capabilities and efficiency, the 2023 Ford Maverick is of course packed full of great content. Some of its most exciting features & tech include an 8” infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Ford Integrated Tether System and, of course, Ford Co-Pilot360. This last feature is the brand’s driver-assistive safety suite, which includes a host of great technologies.
