The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT Hybrid with the Spirit of a True Pickup

March 31st, 2022 by


The coolest pickup hybrid around carries the Automaker of the Year’s name. If anyone has difficulties acknowledging the best, don’t look any further than the 2022 Ford Maverick. When the Blue Oval announced the Hybrid pickup, skeptics shortly followed. Yet, even with soaring gas prices, Maverick enthusiasts look forward to the fill-up. 

The Ford Maverick XL (base) holds a starting price of $19,995* (excluding taxes and destination fees), and the vehicle is one of the least expensive in today’s inflating market. However, the Maverick XLT is of a whole other caliber. When the XLT attains the electric Cyber Orange paint, optional sunroof, spray-in bed liner, all-season floor mats, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring, the XLT’s total is $26,645. Nevertheless, even with the price increase, the Maverick XLT remains $20,000 less than the average new car transaction price of $47,000.


The Ford Maverick XLT hybrid powertrain harbors a 2.5-liter inline-four paired with two electric motors. The hybrid pickup generates 191-horsepower, and the cruising speed is so tranquil. There’s a seamless powertrain transition from gas to electric, but there’s a low hum when electric power adds some gas engine input for all those active listeners out there. The real number worth appreciation is the Ford pickup’s fuel efficiency numbers. EPA estimates the hybrid powertrain at 42 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. 


Anyone thinking of an economical vehicle would immediately assume the car enclosed an economical cabin, but the Ford Maverick is the complete opposite. The Blue Oval was incredibly thoughtful in the flow of the Maverick’s interior. Inside the Ford pickup there are storage cubbies and inside those cubbies are plastic linings that are very easy to clean.  

Additionally, there’s a textured plastic trim along the door panels, and the dashboard supports a marble color that clashes beautifully with the dark navy surrounding the cabin. However, if all black isn’t the affair enthusiasts are after, there are orange accents inside the center-console storage bins and the door handles. 

Although the Maverick is not the typical full-size pickup truck, the Hybrid holds a towing capacity of 2000-lbs and a payload rating of 1500-lbs. As a result, the Maverick’s capabilities are unmatched compared to other vehicles within the same price range, and the Hybrid’s pickup has impeccable efficiency.
