EVs: Ford Unveils New Hybrid Pickup Truck

Ford Maverick

American automaker Ford is surely committed to electric vehicles. For proof, just shortly after unveiling an all-electric version of its popular F-150 pickup truck, it’s now unveiled a new hybrid truck named Maverick.

  • The hybrid Maverick is a compact pickup powered by an electric motor in addition to a gasoline engine. Though, it isn’t a plug-in hybrid so owners won’t be able to charge it for extra electric-only driving range.
  • The Maverick truck is a 2022 model with a starting price of $20k, cheap by normal truck standards. At the high-end versions, it’ll sell for $30k+.

Features and specs of the Ford Maverick truck include:

  • Max payload of 1,500 pounds of cargo and 2,000 pounds of tow, for the base version.
  • Front-wheel drive engine layout, quite uncommon for a pickup
  • Standard in-car entertainment such as Apple Carplay and Android Auto

The Ford Maverick comes in three versions – XL, XLT and Lariat. A 2022 model, it’s set to be released by this year’s fall (late September – late December).
