Ford Maverick turbo EPA fuel consumption estimates confirm truck’s frugality

0


Following information leak on the 2022 Ford Maverick The fuel economy of the 2.0T about a month ago, we now have official estimates from the EPA. And that’s the good news: The EPA’s estimates match the information disclosed. The Maverick 2.0T will do 23 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg combined when equipped with front-wheel drive. Go for all-wheel drive and the small truck will make about 22 cities, 29 highways, and 25 combined.

No, we still don’t have estimates for the Maverick Hybrid. I know this is what you all want, but we just don’t have them yet. They could be coming soon, maybe before the end of September, so stay tuned.

For those wondering if a Tidy or Maverick will suit their life better, these estimates show the latter will save at least 3 mpg combined, comparing a base Ranger with rear-wheel drive to a base Maverick with front-wheel drive. Ditto when stacking the AWD Maverick and 4WD Ranger. These aren’t perfect apples to apples comparisons, but you get the idea. For many people, a Maverick is all they will need. Over five years, the EPA also estimates that Maverick 2.0T owners will spend $ 1,000 less on filling the truck than on a Ranger.

Maverick production is now underway at the Ford plant in Hermosillo, Mexico. The first trucks are expected to hit dealerships this fall, but expect most of them to be equipped with the turbocharged engine. The automaker plans to allocate most, if not all, Maverick hybrids to customer orders to begin with, which could make it a hard to find on dealer lots.
