Ford Maverick 2022. New pickup: a couple of weeks left before the premiere of the Hyundai Santa Cruz competitor from Ford.

The American company will start mass production of the truck with the revived Maverick name in July this year.

Ford will very soon «remember» the name Maverick: it is familiar to many from the crossover, which was produced by the company from 2000 to 2007 (this model was also sold as the Escape).

In addition, other cars were previously called this way: for example, in the 70s they were compact sedans and coupes, and in the 80s and 90s — «clones» of the Nissan Patrol and Terrano II models.

And now Ford has decided to give the name to its new compact pickup with a four-door cab and monocoque body.

Previously, the car has repeatedly come across the lenses of photo spies during road tests.

Now it is reported that the premiere of the new item will take place very soon: according to the publication Ford Authority, which cites its own sources, the premiere of the Ford Maverick pickup will take place in the first half of June.

According to them, the serial production of the model will be launched in June this year.

Earlier it became known that a trial batch of trucks had already been produced at the company’s plant in the Mexican city of Hermosillo.

Judging by the previously leaked spy photos, the front of the Maverick pickup will be made in the image of the «older» brand pickups, primarily the current F-Series.

The Maverick is expected to have a large grille and U-shaped head optics with LED «stuffing».

And at the back, there will probably be large hexagonal lamps and a side cover with the name of the model stamped on it. Earlier we published a version of the appearance of the future novelty.

Recall that the Ford Maverick will be based on the same C2 platform on which the Escape and Bronco Sport crossovers are based, and the «fourth» Focus, presented in 2018, was the firstborn on it.

It is expected that the new truck will receive the equipment from the relatively recently presented Bronco Sport (by the way, it is also produced at the site in Hermosillo).

It is possible that under the hood of the Maverick there will be in-line gasoline turbo engines of the EcoBoost family with a volume of 1.5 liters (183 hp, 258 Nm) and 2.0 liters (253 hp, 375 Nm).

Note that in Bronco Sport they are paired only with an eight-speed hydromechanical «automatic», but the initial version of the pickup may have a «mechanics». In addition, a hybrid version can be included in the range.

Today, the model in the United States has good chances: as such, the segment of compact pickups is not represented in this market, most of these models are intended for Latin America.

It is expected that for buyers in the States, Ford Maverick will have to compete with the upcoming new product of the Korean brand — Hyundai Santa Cruz.

According to the assumptions of the American media, the price tag of Maverick in the initial version will not exceed $ 20 thousand (equivalent to about 1.47 million rubles at the current exchange rate).

For comparison, the cost of the Ford Bronco Sport crossover in the home market starts at $ 26,820 (1.97 million rubles).

A mid-size Ranger pickup will cost $ 24,820 (RUB 1.82 million), and a full-size F-150 pickup can be purchased for at least $ 28,940 (RUB 2.12 million).
