Ford has been talking a lot about its 2022 Ford Maverick hybrid pickup truck and how it will save truck fans money at the pump. Now the brand has the facts to back it up, with the truck officially earning an EPA estimated rating of 42 miles per gallon in the city.
“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… 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.
The Ford Maverick is the first truck to come standard with a hybrid powertrain. It does have a gas engine and 4×4 option if you need more to hit rough roads.
There’s more to be excited about than just a hybrid powertrain. The Maverick can tow from 2,000 to 4,000 pounds when properly equipped. The bed can handle a payload of up to 1,500 pounds. Besides being able to carry a heavy load, the FLEXBED™ of the Ford Maverick can be configured into separate compartments using lumber and take advantage of four D-rings, two tie-downs, and built-in threaded holes to tie everything down. The multi-position tailgate is also built to handle versatile loads, as well as up to 500 pounds of people and food on tailgate nights.

This past April at its Go Further events, Ford announced that a new Ford Hybrid banner would be home to the 16 new electrified vehicles set to be released in the coming years in Europe. Of those vehicles, one of the most notable is the Mustang-inspired electric performance crossover, which is as stylish as it is smart. At the event, Ford revealed that the new electric Mustang-inspired crossover would deliver a maximum driving range of 370 miles.
The Mustang-inspired crossover also takes design cues from the Ford Explorer, and it’s called Mach 1. Although somewhat little has been said about the crossover since Ford announced it in January 2018, the announcement that the vehicle will have a driving range of 370 miles significantly overpasses Ford’s previous announcement that the vehicle would have a range of over 300 miles. With such an impressive range, other vehicles in the lineup are expected to have equally impressive hybrid electric performance.
Smart Vehicle Line-up
With its new Ford Hybrid lineup, Ford is poised to capture a large portion of the hybrid electric market. As Stuart Rowley, the president of Ford of Europe, stated, “Ford Hybrid vehicles will make electrification relevant and attainable for more drivers than ever before. From Fiesta to Transit, every new vehicle we introduce will feature an electrified version that best suits the needs of our customers in an affordable way.” Not only will the vehicles feature state-of-the-art technologies, but they will also be affordable. “Along with advances in technology and connectivity, the models introduced today are just the start of our plans to develop a comprehensive line-up of smart vehicles for a smart world.”
