Why Is The Ford Maverick So Affordable?
The Ford Maverick’s affordable price tag makes it a popular choice for students, young professionals, and retirees. This truck has a surprisingly spacious interior for its size and a sleek exterior that will look great in any neighborhood. With a variety of safety features that provide peace of mind for families with young children or pets, it’s a great option for those not looking to spend the money on an F-150 or needing the size of one but still want some features of a pickup truck!
The Maverick is the Blue Oval’s smallest truck, but it’s still a major deal. It offers a tempting alternative to the dreariness of high-cost SUVs and big pickup models that we see all too often on our streets without resorting to higher prices or unnecessary features. It’s a smaller truck for individuals who need the capabilities of a pickup or doesn’t want another SUV in their driveway.
What makes it so affordable though?
There’s a lot of speculation as to what exactly makes the Ford Maverick such an affordable option, here are some guesses as to why:
- Mass production, the Maverick shares platforms with other high volume vehicles.
- Lower labour costs and taxes based on where the vehicle is produced.
- Decontenting, less features (think LED floor lights etc).
- Inexpensive interior (hard plastics, no true leather, no memory seats, manual passenger even on highest trims, no digital instrument cluster, no HUD, no ventilated seats, no 60/40 folding seats, etc)
- Basic infotainment with modest size screen and available Fordpass.
- A la carte ordering process
The truck is based on an already developed unibody system from the Bronco sport and the engines are proven as well in the Escape. Lots of things going on that help bring the Maverick together which thus is helping reduce the costs.
How Much Will The Ford Maverick Cost?
With a starting price of $25,900, it undercuts the cheapest F-150 by almost $10,000. It is also more than $8,000 cheaper than a base Ranger. Simply put, it’s the cheapest pickup, period.
What Is The Ford Maverick Towing and Load Capacity?
With three trim levels to choose from(XL, XLT, and Lariat), the buyer should know how much they’re willing to spend.
The Maverick is built for those on a budget but sometimes you’ll need more than the base model. For those that just need something that gets them where they need to go and won’t cost too much in repairs or replacement costs down the road–the XL would be the best choice with no-frills.
Living in Grande Prairie you’ll likely need to use the truck for more and may want to have the capability to tow. The Maverick’s maximum towing capacity of 4000 pounds is only available with the available Tow Package. You won’t be hauling your fifth wheel down the highway and enjoying great mileage and fuel but you will be able to haul some simple and small loads with it.
It’s a great choice for those who need an affordable and practical vehicle that can tow smaller loads around town. At an estimated 40mpg EPA, the city mileage makes this truck perfect for a lot of situations.
Is The Ford Maverick Electric?
A fun-to-drive truck, Ford’s new Maverick is a fuel-efficient hybrid that makes use of an eight-speed automatic transmission. While not completely electric (yet, we expect it to come if sales go well), the standard engine option packs 191 horsepower and 173 lb torque while the 2.0L EcoBoost produces 250 HP with 277lbs of torque. n processing power to all four wheels through its 2 liter EcoBoost unit or can be upgraded even further by opting for their optional 3L Triple Setting Hybrid model which offers up increased responsiveness thanks it having three electric motors at work within this system!
It’s not too far off to think that Ford might offer a fully electric version. With the Mach-E and F-150 Lightning making significant splashes this past year, it will be interesting to see how well Ford adopts its other models to become fully electric!
As Ford electric manufacturing plants continue to grow so to will the all-electric models.
Will The Ford Maverick Be 4×4?
Ford, without 4×4? It seems a little unheard of! But the Maverick won’t come with a 4×4 option. With three trims available you will ultimately have to decide on choosing between a Lariat trim or going with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine in order to enjoy All-Wheel-Drive.
As of this writing, the 2.5L Hybrid engine is only equipped to handle Front-Wheel-Drive due to its unique suspension.
