The Maverick electric truck is an all-new compact truck from Ford. This revolutionary compact truck has a standard full hybrid powertrain and is the first pickup truck in America to offer a full hybrid powertrain as its standard powertrain for all of its trim levels. The ultra-efficient 2022 Ford Maverick offers power, capability, practicality, and a variety of high-tech safety and infotainment features—and it comes with an affordable price tag. 

The Maverick for the 2022 model year is an eagerly-anticipated model in the U.S. auto industry. While the 2022 Maverick has not yet hit the mainstream auto market in the United States, it recently went into its official production phase in August and is expected to become available at official Ford dealerships throughout North America beginning at some point during the fall within the third or fourth quarter of 2021.

That being said, Ford has already received an extremely high number of pre-orders for the 2022 Maverick—this major American automaker had received more than 80,000 pre-orders by the end of the second quarter of 2021. This means that the arrival of 2022 Maverick models at Ford dealerships might be delayed as the first Maverick models for 2022 will go toward fulfilling customer pre-orders before these hybrid compact pickup trucks are sent to Ford dealership lots. However, early reports suggest that the 2022 Maverick will be well worth the wait.
