Ford Maverick’s Estimated Fuel Economy Hits 41 MPG

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.[1]

“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.[2]

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.

Should You Buy a Light-Duty or Heavy-Duty Pickup Truck?

If you’re thinking about getting a new or new-to-you pickup, you’re already on the right track with Ford. The F-Series is America’s bestselling truck for 44 years and counting, making the F-150 and Super Duty® two of the finest choices available to you. Not sure whether a light-duty or heavy-duty truck is best for you? Here’s what you need to know.

Light-duty trucks

The Ford F-150 is a light-duty truck, and it tends to offer the best balance of power, capability, and convenience for most drivers. This size of truck is fairly easy to navigate even in and around Nashville, and it offers impressive towing and payload capacities for work or play purposes. With a SuperCab or SuperCrew option, the F-150 even doubles as a great family vehicle.

Heavy-duty trucks

Choose a truck like the Ford Super Duty if you have really big jobs to tackle. A properly equipped Super Duty can tow nearly three times the amount of an F-150, making it a popular choice on worksites where moving equipment is just part of the gig. But a heavy-duty truck like the Super Duty is also a heavy hitter when it comes to style and presence — you’ll have no trouble standing out in Mount Juliet and around Tennessee.

As if that’s not enough, Ford offers two smaller-sized trucks for everyday driving. You can opt for the rugged and powerful Ford Ranger or the all-new Maverick — a compact pickup that’s the first ever to offer a standard hybrid engine.
