It is really formal: The 2022 Ford Maverick is coming on June 8, 2021. The firm also announced an ad marketing campaign starring Gabrielle Union.
Arguably the most tangible and tantalizing tidbit in Dearborn’s teaser for the Maverick arrives courtesy of the truck’s tailgate badging. Look rapidly at the lessen still left part of the tailgate all-around the 8-next mark of the video higher than and you could just notice the little “Hybrid” badge located on the pickup’s rear close. That is right, it looks the Maverick will supply a gasoline-electric powered hybrid powertrain proper out of the gate. Provided the little pickup nearly definitely shares its underpinnings with the Escape and Bronco Activity, the Maverick probably cribs the 200-hp gasoline-electric powered hybrid powertrain from the former SUV (it might also indicate Ford’s plans to place this powertrain in the Bronco Activity, as nicely).
Other noteworthy factors pulled from this teaser are the truck’s black entrance-fender garnish, offset rear license plate, and Ranger-like taillights. The tailgate stamping, in the meantime, looks a bit additional like that of the 2020 F-150’s than the more recent 2021 design.
We will have total coverage of the 2022 Ford Maverick when it debuts following week (June 8), like dishing up facts on its powertrain possibilities, specs, and towing and hauling abilities.
