The 2022 Ford Maverick Is Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car of The Week!

August 22nd, 2022 by

 

The 2022 Ford Maverick is a delightful compact pickup that has an original design, a feisty optional turbocharger, and an incredibly low price. This revived Maverick has many surprises under its belt, so much so that it was deemed worthy of an Editor’s Choice Award. Let’s explore all that this Used Car of The Week has to offer!

Engine

The Ford Maverick has two engine options to work with: a 2.5-liter Atkinson inline-4 + 94-kW battery pack and a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4. The first is a hybrid powertrain that uses an electronic continuously variable transmission. The EPA states that this motor is rated at 42 mpg city/33 mpg highway/37 mpg combined, which is better than the fuel economy of many compacts.

The second option is a turbocharged EcoBoost engine that has a standard front-wheel-drive (FWD) system, though all-wheel-drive (AWD) is optional. This engine is supported by an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior

The styling of the Maverick perfectly aligns with Ford’s lineup, like with the trimmed black mesh grille influenced by the F-Series front end. This Maverick model has an upright, boxy appearance, with proportions that are made to perfection. There is also 8.6 inches of ground clearance.

The 2022 Maverick is presented with a set of either 17- or 18-inch wheels. The base XL consists of steel wheels, and additional finishes involve painted aluminum, bright aluminum, and black painted aluminum. Meanwhile, the FW4 gets a distinctive 17-inch aluminum wheel. Out back, you’ll find halogen taillights, along with a design that has the “Maverick” name engraved on the lower portion of the tailgate.

Interior and Standard

The interior of the Maverick is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The 2-toned cloth seats have sturdy material with contrast stitching. There are several purposeful storage spaces in front and rear rows, particularly in the 5-seater crew cab. The door armrests are made to invite enough space for a one-liter water bottle to sit upright. The large door pockets can also accommodate a tablet or notebook.

The base XL comes with a hybrid powertrain with 191 total system horsepower and 4-wheel disc brakes. It has the (previously mentioned) black mesh grille with a black surround, LED headlights, and drives on 17-inch steel wheels.

Standard features to look forward to includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, power windows, and a 6-speaker audio system together with audio controls on the tilt/telescoping steering wheel. There are 12-volt power outlets located in the front and rear, along with FordPass Connect. There are also some safety technologies like pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking.
