When I wrote my 2022 Ford Maverick review a month or so ago, I didn’t know the mpg of the hybrid version.
No one did. Because it wasn’t finalized yet.
Now, it has been.
Ford says that the trucks will have EPA-estimated fuel economy of 42 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 37 mpg combined, with a range over 500 miles.
Hybrids are expected to ship in December, with the first customers taking delivery in January of 2022. All hybrid production for 2022 is set to be spoken for by November, according to Ford. Once that happens, orders for hybrids will close until next summer.
Naturally, Ford is tooting its own horn.
“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter 4-cylinder automatic (variable gear ratio) gasoline engine. At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects,” said Chris Mazur, Ford Maverick chief engineer, in the press release.
As I said in my review, the hybrid model will be preferable for those looking for a lower MSRP or better fuel economy. If those things don’t matter to you and/or you’re an impatient sort, you can get your grubby mitts on the 2.0-liter four-cylinder version, which is very much not a hybrid, more easily.
