The famous Blue Oval is looking to introduce a new unibody pickup truck called 2022 Ford Maverick. According to the latest reports, the newcomer is likely to share the oily bits with the Bronco Sport and Escape SUVs. We have some exclusive rendering photos and this pickup truck looks incredible.
Like the many nowadays Ford’s cars, the upcoming Maveric will also come with the new design language. Besides, expect plenty of upscale materials inside and exceptional comfort. Under the hood from the latest image, this model will use the same 1.5- and 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged mills that can be found under the Escape model.
2022 Ford Maverick Will Borrowed Many Cues From Bronco Sport
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the upcoming 2022 Ford Maverick compact pickup. Luckily, we have some rendering photos that we can analyze. As we already said, the new model looks very similar to the Bronco Sport SUV. Basically, we can see the same Bronco cues everywhere. For example, the same boxy design is present and we can see similarly shaped circle LED headlights and almost identical grille. Unlike the Bronco that comes with FORD lettering in the middle of the grill, the new model will wear big nameplate MAVERICK.
Don’t forget that the latest 2022 Ford Maverick will ride on the same Ford C2 platform as the Ford Bronco Sport. Other models that also utilize this platform are fourth-generation Ford Focus, third-generation Ford Escape and the Lincoln Corsair.
At this moment, there is no available image inside of the upcoming 2022 Ford Maverick. According to some rumours, the new unibody pickup truck will use plenty of styling from the Bronco Sport model. Recently Bronco Sport model is spied testing and one spy shot reveals its front cabin.
This model comes with a stylish cabin that hosts plenty of high-quality materials. Blue Oval will offer comfortable seats, ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control and heated steering wheel. Additionally, the new Maverick might also feature remote start, wireless charging, and the new infotainment system.
2022 Ford Maverick Under the Hood
As we mentioned earlier, the upcoming 2022 Ford Maverick will probably use the same powertrains as the Escape SUV. If you remember, this model is powered by two EcoBoost powertrains that will be present on the Maverick.
The first engine is a 1.5-litre EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Also, this engine under the Escape features a cylinder-deactivation system, which automatically shuts down one cylinder to conserve fuel. The next one is stronger 2.0-litre EcoBoost inline-4 that delivers 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. As you may know, the Escape is also available with hybrid and PHEV system. However, right now, there is no info will Maverick use some of those systems.
Final Thoughts and Expectations
From the first renderings, the upcoming 2022 Ford Maverick looks more stylish than the Bronco model. However, as we can see, both models provide the same attractive lines. Blue Oval is still quiet about this model and right now there is no information about its released date and price.
It will likely be produced alongside the Bronco Sport at the Ford Hermosillo plant in Mexico. From many gossips, this model will be introduced on some upcoming events, while its release can be expected sometime next year.
