Ford Just Made The Maverick Pickup More Expensive
Not only is the 2022 Ford Maverick the first pickup truck in the U.S. to feature a standard full-hybrid powertrain, but it also started at under $20,000. It’s no wonder that demand was too high and dealers sold most of the trucks at a significant price premium over the MSRP; in fact, Ford announced it would stop taking orders for the Maverick Hybrid as of January 27, 2022.
The order books will reopen in late summer 2022 for the 2023 Maverick, but prospective buyers will likely need to pay more than the initial sub-$20k base price. Ford sent a retail price increase bulletin to dealerships, revealing the mid-level Maverick XLT will cost $80 more, and the range-topping Lariat is now $370 more expensive than before.
However, there's good news for buyers of the base Maverick XL as it still starts at $21,490 (including $1,495 destination fees), and those who want the optional turbo engine will be relieved to hear Ford didn’t increase its price. Still, waiting for a new Ford Maverick Hybrid will require patience, but for the 2023 model, it will also require a bit more money.
