The 2023 Ford Maverick is a new compact pickup truck that will be available in both four-door and two-door body styles. It will be powered by a 2.0 litter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
The Maverick Ford will have a standard six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive will be optional. Pricing for the 2023 Ford Maverick has not been announced yet, but it is expected to start around $25,000. The 2023 Maverick will have its official debut sometime in late 2022.
We remain steadfast in our statement that the Ford Maverick is the small pickup truck Subaru should make. Subaru Baja is long gone, that’s all. Ford didn’t complain.
Maverick as we know it has been a phenomenal success for the Blue Oval, especially at the entry level mixed model. Ford has quietly admitted that it was a little caught off guard by the high demand for hybrids.
A $20,000 compact pickup with an EPA rating of 40 mpg is bound to be a success, and people have spoken out. Optional Eco boost 2.0L (you currently get Maverick with AWD) is also a good option.
But unfortunately, the truck’s popularity forced Ford to suspend all orders for the 2022 model year last month.
It’s not a terrible problem, but it’s certain to frustrate many customers. The good news is that Ford will start taking orders for the 2023 model sometime this summer, and now thanks to the folks on the Maverick Truck Club forums we know when those orders will be accepted again.
Magic Date is August 16, 2022. Production is scheduled to begin on October 24.
The post does note that these dates are subject to change as vendor issues and other related factors come into play. But overall, a mid-August production start sounds about right.
This will provide enough time if any rework needs to be done at the hermo-sillo plant in Mexico, the same one that makes the Bronco Sport.
It shares Maverick’s C2 platform. If you’re still desperate to buy a Maverick and can’t wait until summer, you’ll have to find one available at a dealer somewhere.
Don’t be surprised to see these examples sell for thousands of dollars on stickers; low supply means high demand. Ford has vehemently opposed price hikes, and CEO Jim Farley recently warned dealers to stop doing so or face penalties.
They are highly unlikely to be closed, But they may be excluded from receiving new models that are in high demand, such as the F-150 Lightning.
The Ford Maverick will be coming out in 2023 and its interior specs have just been released. The car will come with a V8 engine, four-wheel drive and air conditioning. It is anticipated to sell for around $30,000. Get ready to hit the streets in style!
