About the Ford Maverick
The 2023 Ford Maverick offers many ways to customize your vehicle to meet your needs, whether you need the Towing or Off-Road Package, the Hybrid Engine, or the EcoBoost.
You can spruce up the Maverick with the black appearance package and still know that the truck is “Ford-esque.”
The Ford Maverick is also a budget-friendly truck with a starting price of $22,595 for the XL model.
There are three models within the Ford Maverick Camper line: the XL, the XLT and the Lariat. The starting price ranges from $22,595 to $28,355, depending on the trim level. All three models can accommodate a maximum of five people.
Each model is equipped with a 2.5L FHEV (hybrid) engine, with the option to install the 2.0L EcoBoost engine instead. All three trims come with front bucket seats and a fold-down rear bench seat with flip-up seat cushions.
The XLT and Lariat models can be equipped with optional heated seats. Also, on these two models, the standard black urethane steering wheel can be replaced with a heated leather steering wheel and the standard outside mirrors can be replaced with heated glass mirrors.
The XL is equipped with a black grille, the XLT with a gray grille, and the Lariat with a silver grille. The tailgate is manually locked on the XL, while it can be electrically locked on the XLT and Lariat.
These two trim levels also feature the SecuriCode keyless entry keypad on the driver’s side.
Hybrid models have a 13.8-gallon fuel tank, while EcoBoost models have a 16.5-gallon tank. Although the standard models are front-wheel drive, there is the option to upgrade to all-wheel drive.
The Ford Maverick XL and XLT have a payload capacity of 1,500 pounds and are equipped with 17-inch P225/65R A/S BSW tires. The Ford Maverick Lariat has the same payload capacity, but larger P225/60R 18-inch A/S-BSW tires. Maximum towing capacity is 4,000 pounds on all three trims.
The available Ford Maverick FX4 Off-Road Package includes 17-inch aluminum wheels, A/T tires, hill descent control, underride protection, tuned shocks, mud and rut driving mode and more.
Not only is the exterior better equipped for off-road use, but this package also includes a heavy-duty radiator and engine fan. You can be sure that the extra cooling will keep the engine running.
The Off-Road package requires the 2.0L EcoBoost engine and an upgrade to all-wheel drive.
