Efficiency Meets Performance: Maverick's Hybrid Powertrain

A key feature setting the Ford Maverick apart from its competition is its standard hybrid powertrain, allowing you to enjoy exceptional fuel efficiency without compromising performance.

1. Fuel Efficiency: The Maverick's 2.5L full hybrid powertrain offers impressive fuel economy, with a targeted EPA-estimated 5.9 L/100km (40 mpg) city rating. This makes the Maverick a top choice for urban commuters and eco-minded drivers seeking to minimize their carbon footprint.

2. Performance: Don't let the compact size fool you – the Maverick boasts an impressive 191 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque, delivering a satisfying driving experience. With a towing capacity of 907 kg (2,000 pounds), the Maverick proves capable of handling moderately sized cargo for weekend getaways or small business needs.

Flexibility for Everyday Life: Innovative Storage Solutions

Tailored for city living and spontaneous adventures, the Maverick offers a range of flexible storage solutions that make the most of its compact dimensions:

1. FLEXBED™ System: The Maverick's unique FLEXBED™ system allows you to maximize the utility of your truck bed. With adjustable tie-downs, available sliding rails, and segmented storage compartments, you can customize your cargo carrying experience to accommodate different loads with ease.

2. Spacious Interior: Don't be deceived by its compact exterior; the Maverick's roomy interior offers ample space for passengers and cargo. The rear folding seats provide additional storage for bulky items, and the front passenger seat boasts hidden storage compartments for small, valuable items that need extra protection.

Stay Connected: Advanced Technology and Connectivity Features

Embrace the digital age with the Maverick's advanced technology and connectivity features designed to make your driving experience seamless and enjoyable:

1. SYNC® 3 Infotainment System: The Maverick's SYNC® 3 infotainment system keeps you entertained and connected on-the-go. Featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, built-in navigation, and voice recognition, the 8-inch touchscreen is the hub of your Maverick's entertainment and information.

2. FordPass™ Connect: With the FordPass™ Connect app, you can remotely lock and unlock your Maverick, locate your vehicle, access vehicle diagnostics, and even schedule maintenance appointments – all from your smartphone.

3. Driver-Assist Technologies: Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology offers a suite of driver-assist features designed to increase your confidence and safety on the road. Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®), Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane-Keeping System are just some of the standard features that help keep you and your passengers secure.
