2022 Ford Maverick review: Ultimate nerd machine

the average amount paid for a new,vehicle is over forty seven thousand,dollars let me say that again forty,seven,thousand dollars thats insane,especially if you cant afford forty,seven thousand dollars,but theres something thats available,for far less and its built for the,nerds of the world like me and probably,you,this is the ford maverick the base model,starts at 20 000,but its not just that it also has a,hybrid system that offers mileage up to,42 miles per gallon now the epa rating,for city and highway combined is 37,miles per gallon so with this vehicle,youre saving money on both ends both,when you buy it and while youre driving,around town but thats not what makes it,nerdy if all we cared about was saving,cash wed all be sporting chromebooks,and using android phones we bought from,the supermarket no theres something,else about it,the maverick is perfect for nerds from,3d printed add-ons to a bed thats built,for customization ford has put forth a,vehicle thats built for,individualization and people are,responding,for example these fits or ford,integrated tether system slots they have,one right here and with it you can buy,accessories from four so you can get,like cup holders or bag holders or,whatever or you can do what maker robert,trap did and design your own thing you,could 3d print stuff as long as you have,the dimensions for the adapter,boom you can make your own cup holder or,you can make a water bowl for your dog,or something to hold a bag now in,addition to this slot right here,in the rear seat storage there are,additional slots,there are two right here and two right,here and they can be used to create,barriers between things or you know if,youre really crazy you could put cup,holders in there or have a little box to,hold your gopros if youre a,videographer or maybe hooks to wrangle,cables if you travel with a lot of,cables really anything you can think of,thatll fit in this area you can 3d,print and place under here the byproduct,of encouraging makers to 3d print parts,for the vehicle is that some of them are,3d printing parts that ford never,intended like this little cubby hole,next to the touchscreen somebody has,created a design for this cubbyhole in,fact you can buy,little editions that go into this,cubbyhole on etsy and ebay or you can,just go to thingiverse and find the file,and print your own stuff but its not,just in here where ford is making it,easy to customize the vehicle back here,you get a four and a half foot bed now,its not huge but it is likely large,enough for most of your needs,whats fun is that it has these slots,here here here and here and what you can,do is you can cut down two by fours and,two by sixes to actually fit in these,slots and,create sections,so you can block off certain sections so,you dont have things moving around but,more importantly you can actually mount,things to these pieces of wood in fact,ford has a how-to video on how to take a,bicycle axle and create a bike rack in,the back of the ford maverick if you,want to get really crafty you can mount,hooks to some of these boards and use,them to keep well cases like im trying,to keep my pelican case from sliding,around in the back of this truck,the automaker didnt stop with finding,new and exciting uses for lumber here in,the walls of the bed are screw holes so,you can mount items including an,available side rail or you can build,your own side rail,plus you also get storage boxes one on,either side that you can open up and,they have a little false bottom so you,can,store all of these type of things,and you also have these 12 volt setups,on either side of the bed you can pull,it out you can use it to diy yourself,some lights maybe put in some usb,chargers,and there is the option from ford of,putting a 120 volt outlet you know just,like the one you have in your house of,course none of this matters if the,maverick is horrible to drive well its,not in fact its actually quite nice,behind the wheel thats helped in part,by the fact that it is based on the same,platform as the ford escape and the ford,broncos sport so it has an suv,underpinning which means that its a bit,more tame on the road in fact were,driving on a really rough road right now,and it feels pretty good but because it,is using the same platform as the ford,escape,you can only get a hybrid with,front-wheel drive now front-wheel drive,on a truck is weird because,traditionally,trucks are rear wheel drive,ive been driving around the maverick,with front wheel drive for over a week,and i actually really like it in fact,i prefer it to the traditional rear,wheel drive because its been raining,and traditional rear wheel drive trucks,when it rains well you get rear wheel,spin,and thats not fun this vehicle taking,off in the rain no wheel spin,there is an all wheel drive version but,its not available as a hybrid so,instead of the 2.5 liter four-cylinder,hybrid engine it ships with a two liter,turbocharged ecoboost four-cylinder,the hybrid has 191 horsepower and 155,pound-feet of torque the more powerful,ecoboost engine thats eleven hundred,dollars more,has 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of,torque but you do lose about 12 miles,per gallon of efficiency i threw 800,pounds of rock into the back of the,maverick in fact i did it twice and to,be honest it wasnt really that big of a,deal now i did it once in regular mode,where the car drove fine and i did a,second time with tow haul mode where it,gave me a little extra low end torque,again,not a big deal,driving on city and highway roads is a,bit smoother than i anticipated a lot of,that has to do with the suv platform i,will say that these seats are also,a bit more comfortable than i expected,there is plenty of headroom plenty of,leg room in the front you will be,cramped in the back if youre sitting,behind a tall person though so be,prepared for that no matter which trim,level you get you get this eight inch,touchscreen now its not huge but it is,adequate and more importantly it,supports both apple carplay and android,auto,now this is where i tell you how ford,can offer up this vehicle starting price,with twenty thousand dollars doesnt,have a lot of accoutrements for example,uh cruise control you cant get anything,above regular cruise control with the,maverick in fact you dont even get,cruise control on the base level trim if,you buy the base level twenty thousand,dollar vehicle no cruise control not at,all now im going to level with you,about that i hate regular cruise control,im totally fine with adaptive cruise,control i really like it especially in,traffic but regular cruise control i,dont have time for that im always,afraid its going to hit the car in,front of me for some reason,if you use regular cruise control youre,going to want to upgrade from the 20 000,xl model to the xlt or to the lariat,that im driving right now,the base level does not come with all,the ford copilot 360 safety items it,does have pre-collision warning with,emergency braking for an extra 650 you,can add crash traffic alert and a lane,keeping aid,i will say that if you are concerned,when youre putting all this wood in and,out about things in the bed of the truck,the 500 spray and liner might be a good,option for you that said if youre,looking for a pickup that is smaller,than a studio apartment gets great gas,mileage and is easy to park the maverick,especially when youre thinking about,price is probably better off with fewer,options added,in a world where pickup trucks are,getting larger and larger and new,vehicle prices are skyrocketing the,maverick stands apart now youre,probably best getting the base model,with a spray-in liner and all the money,you save from buying this vehicle you,can put towards buying a new 3d printer,and some lumber for more automotive,coverage next to the largest pile of,dirt in northern california be sure to,subscribe to engadget,you

2022 Ford Maverick Full Review: an Affordable, Practical Pickup Truck

this is a 2022 ford maverick and its a,new type of pickup truck while most,trucks are getting bigger and more,capable and more luxurious and more,expensive this one,is affordable and small the maverick,starts around twenty thousand dollars it,really is a new kind of pickup truck and,today im going to review it,[Music],before i get started be sure to check,out cars and bids which is my enthusiast,car auction website for cool cars from,the modern era now with free listings,you can list your car for free and,auction it on cars and bids and weve,had some great sales recently including,this 90s ford f-250 which brought 21 500,this ford raptor which sold for just,over 54 000 and this 2012 cadillac cts-v,sold for just over 34 000. if youre,looking to buy or sell a cool enthusiast,car from the modern era the 1980s and up,cars and bids is the place to do it,check it out with daily auctions and,great selection at carsandbids.com,ive borrowed this maverick from el,cajon ford which is my local ford,dealership here in the san diego area el,cajon ford has all of the latest ford,models and theyre especially focused on,ford trucks and they have a few of the,new mavericks which are just starting to,come out you can check out el cajon ford,by clicking the link in the description,below so lets talk maverick just a few,years ago the f series was the only,truck in fords lineup the full-size big,ol f series then in 2019 ford revived,the mid-size ranger but now for 22 ford,is blazing a totally new trail with the,maverick its the return of the,affordable compact pickup truck the,maverick offers two engine options base,models come with a 190 horsepower hybrid,four-cylinder which is only offered with,front-wheel drive or you can upgrade to,a turbo 4-cylinder with 250 horsepower,and with that you can get front or,all-wheel drive now base level maverick,models start around 21 000 with shipping,and 30 grand will buy you a pretty well,equipped top trim lariat version so this,is a new affordable truck and today im,going to review it first ill take you,on a thorough tour of the maverick and,show you all of its interesting quirks,and features then ill get it out on the,road and drive it and then ill give it,a dug score,all right time for the quirks and,features of the maverick now ive,already made a video where i went,through a thorough tour of the maverick,but that was a pre-production model this,is a production car and i couldnt drive,that one or frankly spend a lot of time,with it this time im able to drive it,and really get a feel for it and spend,more time and so this video will be a,little bit more thorough in its coverage,of the maverick and also when i made,that video with the pre-production,maverick pricing hadnt yet been,announced it was just being speculated,on now that i know official pricing it,gives me a lot more context for the,truck the interior the power trains the,market position that sort of thing and,to that end i gotta say this thing seems,like a pretty good deal at least on,paper this one is equipped to around,twenty nine thousand dollars with,all-wheel drive in the bigger engine and,for a truck at with truck capabilities,in a truck bed and four doors that seems,like a pretty reasonable number given,how expensive most trucks have gotten,but lets go through the maverick now,and see if that number really stands up,so anyway starting in the interior and i,have to say for a relatively affordable,vehicle ford has done a fantastic job in,this interior of making this truck not,look cheap now they have used cheap,materials but theyve done so in kind of,a cool quirky interesting way which,doesnt make it feel cheap or crappy in,here take a look at the door panel you,can see this like white composite,plastic material probably not that,expensive but its kind of interesting,and quirky and at the top part theyve,molded it into these weird triangles and,shapes which adds some coolness and,funkiness there on the door panel you,move inside and you can see the seats,instead of crappy normal cloth you have,sort of an interesting pattern almost,looks like tweed two different colors,and its kind of cool you also have,orange stitching around the seats which,again adds a little coolness in this,interior and it matches some of the,other interesting stuff specifically all,of the orange accents in here you have,orange accents on the climate vents as,you can see you have orange accents in,the center console storage compartment,there as you can see and in this further,back center console storage compartment,and thats tied together with the orange,stitching on the seats again not,something that added cost or makes the,truck more expensive but it does add,kind of an interesting appeal in this,interior and its the same deal on the,dashboard where you have again this,white like plastic looking material with,gray flecks probably not very expensive,to make but it does look cool and kind,of interesting and funky in here and,thats what they were going for you can,see also on the dashboard again more of,these weird geometric shapes the,triangles over on the passenger side,just makes it a little bit more unusual,and a little cooler i know its not some,high class high quality f-150 king ranch,luxury interior but,its a lot better than just another,crappy generic gray plastic interior,that most affordable cars have at least,they kind of thought outside the box and,made it more interesting in this,interior even though they didnt really,spend any more money to do that and next,up still in the interior we move on to,storage which is a big theme in here,ford thought through a lot of different,places where you can stick stuff some,interesting cubbies one is back to the,door panel you can see theres a little,slot thats molded to fit a water bottle,you can stick the water bottle here and,then theres a piece that actually comes,out of the door panel that kind of keeps,it in place and thats for water bottles,also in this area you can see the door,panel kind of extends behind the trim,you can get more stuff back here if you,want kind of a weird spot but it is some,extra storage in here next up move on to,the center console for more storage and,you can see a lot of different places,where you can put stuff i count five,different little center console cubbies,in this interior where you can stick,items if you want to including this one,thats sort of upright so that you could,put a phone here if you want to like,look at it for directions while youre,driving you can leave it there so you,dont have to pick it up and look at it,and distract you its just sitting in,place but when it comes to storage,probably the quirkiest and most unusual,storage items are on the dashboard,directly above the center screen you can,see this one an odd storage copy mounted,on the top of the dashboard but even,stranger is the cubby next to the center,screen which you can see here again kind,of odd and it has a little lower lip so,if you do put something in this cubby it,wont come flying out under hard,acceleration but it is kind of a strange,place to put stuff but ford really,wanted to maximize storage in this,interior so there are some traditional,storage spots and then there are some,weird kind of funky ones and next up,other interesting quirks and features in,this interior one you notice when you,open the door on the side of the,dashboard built for tough just in case,anybody says you dont have a real ford,truck you open up your door and show,them that and prove that you do,also interesting in this interior is the,gear selector ford is using this on most,cars but if youre not familiar with,ford you might find it kind of strange,its a circle as you can see you twist,it around to go through the different,gears and if you want to go into low,range you press the button in the center,marked l and then it puts you in low but,that is your odd gear selector in this,car also unusual in the center console,you can see theres a little button with,a

Ford Maverick Turbo | Times Have Changed

[Music],if youve watched our videos you might,think this is the same truck we did,before,and it is 100 same color same trim level,we just have a different drivetrain and,of course we had jack in here talking,about the interior and the guys an,idiot so now im gonna take over youre,gonna have the master give you the,impressions on the ford maverick for,once the 2022 ford maverick ford has,listened to the market and built a small,utilitarian pickup truck that is,affordable it has a four and a half foot,bed and four doors,so lets break this down ford in the,past has not done a great job on their,economy cars and trucks theyve always,looked like just a glorified rental,vehicle or a u-haul fleet truck,this,is a huge step up because you can tell,theres attention to detail,from the way that the dashboard is,assembled and the way that the,individual trim pieces are put together,it looks like there was thought and time,the way things are rolled its not just,a flat piece of shitty plastic,everywhere and its not that the the,quality of the pieces has gone up or the,cost and you know ford is great at,pinching their suppliers to pennies on,the dollars and it doesnt feel like,that here from the corian countertop,look plastics the gray which is trying,to obviously mimic that of stone because,theres these geometries in it its just,a nice touch it doesnt feel like you,know you want you want to get out of,here as fast as possible like the,rubberized coating on the door handles,the rubberized coating on the vents and,the little color accents the orange,color accents again theres enough,interior style here where twenty,thousand dollars or twenty five thousand,dollars doesnt feel like a huge penalty,box,the other thing that ford has done is,the storage and jack talked about in the,other video but lets get into the,specifics of that this center console,area has been lowered down to make it,feel like youre sitting in a bench seat,they tried to put everything down lower,so it was kind of out of your way the,way that theyve assembled the plastic,storage spaces is all rubberized coating,so things dont fly around as easy and,theres custom cutouts for different,shapes of objects so its not just this,huge open area where shits flying,around everywhere you have a space for,your phone that you can stand upright,you can put it downward you can put bags,you can put little knickknacks i have,coffee cups in here i have my condom,boxes and of course all my ointment,creams for various skin rashes in the,doors theres again cutouts where you,can put different size stuff without it,just flopping around theres a storage,space on the upper dashboard for your,lipstick or your mascara the side of the,infotainment screen where its not,filled out all the way will fit a pager,or a flip phone and everything else is,basically the same that what jack talked,about before cloth seats comfortable the,back seats are usable the bed despite it,being small if you get the spray in bed,liner option its perfect for putting,the things that you need without going,to that mid-size and full-size truck,that is going to bankrupt you these days,the last thing to talk about before we,head into the shop is the infotainment,and while im not going to get into the,nitty-gritty when you look at it its,clear its focused its close to the,driver so when you interact with it with,touch everythings right where you need,it and it is hyper quick the other thing,that ford has never done quite well on,affordable cars is the audio system and,despite this being more of that cheaper,audio system it doesnt sound like,absolute trash in fact if you change it,to driver focus mode and you just up the,eq in terms of treble and mid its,surprisingly really good to listen to,and something that you dont typically,get in this price range so lets head,into the shop were going to talk about,this truck a little bit in terms of the,drive train options before we drive it,the new ford bronco or maverick,this transcends space and time and why,is that jack because this is on the c2,platform which is their non-truck,platform that is highly modular the c2,includes the broncos sport the ford,escape and this american-made,masterpiece which is built in mexico,because only ford can get international,communities together like this its,truly incredible what that translates to,is something that is built for tough at,least the ecvt hybrid and as were going,to find from the engineer right now,there was a lot that went into making,this thing capable of delivering on that,promise my name is abdul hajifd e-drive,engineering were actually offering a,design develop tested and manufactured,in-house electric motor for the first,time,were able to take costs out material,out while keeping capability to match,the ford truck we dont have to rely on,the know-how from our suppliers were,doing it ourselves now,not only does it meet the the truck,commitment in terms of durability,thermal performance trailer tow,everything thats built for tough but at,the same time were getting 20,uh weight reduction so as the engineer,said there are or maybe he didnt there,are two different drive trains available,for this our first video we did on this,was the hybrid which returns far,superior fuel economy it should have,longer intervals between oil changes be,easier on the brakes but that truck can,only be had as front wheel drive and,because this is a modular suspension,architecture you have two different,options you can have this as front-wheel,drive which to be fair this two-liter is,or you can go to an optional all-wheel,drive system which is on demand but it,changes the rear suspension layout you,have a torsion beam in the front-wheel,drive cars however in the all-wheel,drive equipped cars you get a multi-link,which should handle better and ride,better than the torsion beam equipped,vehicles this two liter is the ecoboost,t-leader it produces 250 horsepower 277,foot-pounds of torque and its mated to,a traditional 8-speed automatic where,the hybrid is mated to an ecvt the,payloads of both trucks are identical at,1500 pounds however the towing capacity,is greatly increased in the,non-hybrid vehicles it can tow up to,four thousand pounds where the hybrid,trucks can only tow up to two thousand,they both have a great turning radius at,40 feet and this truck is much smaller,than its bigger brother the ranger by,about 10 inches which does make a big,deal in a vehicle that youre going to,be 10 inches is huge yes it is theres,no doubt and when we get this thing on,the pavement im going to reorganize the,local townships pavement program when,im going to be going flat out i cant,wait,[Music],no ecvts here jack what do we got,two liter 250 horsepower and a real,eight speed automatic but this is front,wheel drive oh and this engine is from,cleveland too by the way perfect,[Music],this things actually really this thing,is way faster than it has any right to,be yeah we were driving this yesterday,and i drove it today im like holy,i mean youre literally ripping the,front tires off the ground with this,thing i mean youre gonna smoke a lot of,cars,in this because of the turbocharged,torque and power that it delivers jack,and when this is all-wheel drive when,you option it to be all-wheel drive im,sure this will do a really good job,getting off the line and itll perform,in bad weather the penalty though mark,is fuel economy and the pgs we got about,40 in the hybird yes and this is what,26.7 and thats highway city you know,thats our combined cycle yes thats us,driving but its the same roads we did,in the hybrid and in fact its warmer,weather now so theoretically it should,be even yeah so maybe a normal person on,the highway is going to get a little bit,over 30 but in mixed youre probably,going to be in the high 20s yes so what,what else we got what are we going to,deal with in terms of handling holy,christ this thing is quick,i cant believe how fast this this thing,is for what it is yeah when the,aftermarke

2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid: 5000 Mile Test Drive Update

hey my good friends sam haymart with,test driven tv our 2022 ford maverick,hybrid xl long-term test vehicle has,finally hit the milestone of 5 000 miles,so,its time for a test drive update,[Music],if you watch our channel regularly you,know that last summer we placed an order,for our own long-term test vehicle 2022,ford maverick hybrid and this is an xl,base model with only a single option i,wanted the cheapest possible truck that,we could get i like to have a base,vehicle when we do testing because so,often the automakers always send us,fully loaded vehicles like in the case,of a maverick a lariat or an xlt fx4,things like that so i wanted to see what,the vehicle they advertised for twenty,thousand dollars at 40 miles to the,gallon was really like to live with so,fast forward to today we have logged,5000 miles and i can tell you that i,have learned a lot about what this truck,is like to live with and thats what,were going to talk about,right now,part of living with this truck has been,the interior and having 5 000 miles,logged in under four months ive been,spending a lot of time sitting right,where you see me and so if you look at,our original review that we did on the,truck test drive review i talked about a,few things and some of the things they,talked about ring true today now this,interior as you can see right now these,pictures looks a little bit more lived,in its not perfectly clean and detailed,like you might find a lot of our press,vehicles that we test theres a little,bit of dust here and there theres some,marks and this hard plastic material,that you see on the door panels and the,dash especially on the door panels picks,up a lot of dust and marks from your,body when you get in and out of the,truck you can see on the lower part of,the door panel there where my boot,brushes buy it it has to be cleaned,quite a bit ive talked about these,seats not being the most comfortable in,the world and they dont have a lot of,height range adjustment which is to say,they dont go up and down like this they,go up and down like this and so it takes,a while to sort of get used to the,seating position where a lot of cars,give you so much adjustment range you,can get it right where you want it right,away the materials in here seem to be,wearing very well the seat material,itself has remained pretty sturdy ive,seen some conversation out there about,people who had problems with the,material wrinkling on the seats already,so far ive not had that problem i do,find that this plastic steering wheel in,the xl is pretty slippery sometimes the,material itself i have found that the,layout and design of this interior is,very good for living in this vehicle,every day the cup holders right there,the storage cubbies i have plenty of,storage here that i use on the daily i,still not a big fan of this twist style,gear selector um i have found many times,where,even though you get used to it you still,have to look down and see where youre,at or sometimes youre in a different,gear than you think you are sometimes,you just dont have that tactile knowing,where its at based on the location of,your gear lever where you dont have to,look down and double check and i thats,the main reason i dont like these,things plus its just a way for them to,save money in the ranger that they just,introduced for 2023 they put a lever in,it and they put out a press release,stating the fact that they put a lever,in it because buyers didnt like the,knob,yet here it is now the infotainment,system,this thing is still jinky is all get out,i talked about this in my original test,drive as as being akin to a clock radio,and its audio quality as well as its,performance the audio quality this is,okay for an inexpensive vehicle i was,not expecting the bno sound system here,but with all of the things that this,offers the bluetooth connectivity the,android auto the apple carplay,functionality it doesnt perform all,that well doing those things and so what,happens sometimes is it freezes up when,you try to use android auto and plug in,it tends to go blank and then it tends,to be very slow and very clunky to use,and so so much so that ive just opted,not to use android auto when you plug in,unplug it can take a minute or two for,it to refresh and get ready to go so i,have depended on my audio through,bluetooth connectivity using pandora,siriusxm and so forth and there what i,find is that it doesnt always,automatically connect its jinky,sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt,you know theres no rhyme or reason to,it sometimes i can go all day and itll,always connect itll always be just fine,other times,every other time i get in the car its,like it just goes back to fm and i have,to reconnect and do the whole thing and,thats not just my experience thats an,experience that ive seen a lot of,people out on the forums talking about,another way i use this audio system for,music is ive got a usb stick down here,thats got a number of media songs and,and recordings that i like to listen to,on the daily when i get tired of pandora,when i get tired of am fm at all is,commercials and that works very good it,indexes that and then you can just play,and it works like clockwork that is the,one thing this does very well is it,plays,songs off of your usb stick and you can,plug a cd player into that as well,anything that plugs into that usb port,tends to be pretty reliable in terms of,using this but bluetooth,thats jinky,all right so lets go for a drive and,talk about some of its driving,characteristics that definitely need to,be pointed out if you havent seen that,in a video yet now im twisting the key,and hitting the the start turn but of,course nothing happens because were in,a hybrid i just get a ready to drive,indicator on the instrument cluster but,as we go to pull away here,this has a very interesting little chime,that comes on in reverse very much like,a garbage truck but not nearly as,annoying so whenever youre in reverse,and youre backing out of a space,its just got that cute little sound,so while were in slow speed situations,such as in a parking lot one thing weve,got to talk about right away is a,driving characteristic that this has,thats given me some level of concern,and if its not concerned its just wow,they didnt do better engineering than,that and that is that,the brakes on this hybrid system are,not the most refined in the world they,tend to be very abrupt in their,engagement between regenerative braking,and,hydraulic braking in that transition,back and forth particularly at slow,speeds like zero to three miles an hour,like when youre in a parking lot and,youre pulling into a space or youre,coming up to,a stop sign they just,they just grab sometimes and you can,feel that in the pedal and its,something that,it doesnt happen all the time,and its also something that hybrid,brakes have always been known for,because its a dry by wire brake system,sometimes its very abrupt and its very,grabby,like it didnt do it here,other times it just really if you have a,drink in your hand with coffee you can,spill your coffee,when it engages abruptly or roughly my,read on this is that its a very low,level of refinement,and or something i need to talk to my,dealer about so i posted a thread on the,maverick truck club website and started,a discussion there,and a lot of people are having the same,exact experience with their trucks now,it may very well be its just a driving,characteristic of the ford maverick,hybrid but i tested recently a ford,escape hybrid which has the same exact,platform the same exact powertrain and,brake system and it didnt do it so,something im keeping an eye on and ill,be reporting back on a little bit later,when we see how that shakes out if its,something that goes away if its,something that my dealer could fix if,its something thats just,becoming known as a maverick hybrid,driving trait,since i purchased this truck literally,99 of all of my driving has been,in the suburban city environment from,zero to about 60 mil

horsepower this ones,actually a front-wheel drive you can get,them in all-wheel drive and you can also,get the hybrid system hybrid system of,being told is a little harder to get,now i bet youre wondering you can,probably go through the internet and,find a bunch of these videos on why,the ford maverick is the truck for you,now my goal is to give you an honest,review about this vehicle because what i,hate is more than anything is going on,these damn youtube channels trying to,find,a review,on a truck and then when i get to it and,buy it and love it,for three days and then i absolutely,hate the thing,i just got into this truck and i will be,quite honest its a little,different what i mean by different its,not different in bad i mean how could,you possibly judge right now im looking,at the window sticker and this truck is,twenty six thousand four hundred and,twenty five dollars twenty six thousand,000,30 000,it is is huge even after taxes it even,has a damn sunroof too that you can open,it does not have a back sliding back,window which unfortunately who cares,its such a small truck im not looking,forward to entertaining the people in,the back seat,though there is quite a few problems,with this truck though it is not a,hundred percent,amazing it its it could be a hell of a,lot better,let me show you,its not the prettiest thing ever,but nor is it ugly its kind of that in,between which im okay with,im not in it for look especially with,just under 30 000,i do not care,yes there is,no solid axle on this truck it is a,full-on independence even with the,all-wheel drive system,theres just a pumpkin in the middle and,two arms on each side,the ride on this thing is quite sublime,im actually quite happy that it has a,full independent suspension on it this,truck could have been way bouncier but,it really takes on the bumps oklahoma,roads are notorious for just being the,worlds worst,bumpiest just pothole driven roads out,there,and this truck actually takes the bumps,really really well,um there is quite a bit of engine noise,its not a bad noise nor is it a great,noise i mean its just a four cylinder,turbo when you get one of these trucks,youre getting it,basically to work youre not getting it,for any kind of fashion,and when i say work i mean you can take,this to school and still be on a budget,you can take this grocery shopping and,still have that capabilities of a truck,in the back you can still take this to,home depot lowes and still be just fine,i am quite happy the fact that i didnt,spend,40 to 50 even 60 70 80 in these trucks,and these uh half ton trucks are,starting to become 90 to 100 000 im,quite happy with the fact that i spent,less than 30 000 on a truck i could,crash this thing and still get,another one and still be better off i,like that its a little different when,you drive a mid-sized truck,nor are you youre not up here up tall,youre down here on the lower ground,youre almost like a regular suv,and thats okay im okay with it,im okay with the fact that it only does,have a four and a half foot bed it does,tow,not the greatest amount your payload if,you have just one person in the vehicle,you know thats not too heavy you know,you could get about 1500 pounds give or,take towing you do have pretty good,towing on this truck without the tow,package which is an optional extra i,think its about four to five hundred,bucks optional it is an option you go,from two thousand about a four thousand,pound towing which honestly in a truck,like this thats plenty we dont need to,go six ten,twelve thousand pounds on a little truck,like this i didnt get this truck to do,that i got this truck to do light to,medium work and thats exactly what this,does i rather have this,than the fort ranger and i hate to say,it this is what the ford ranger should,have been,this actually pisses me off a bit,because when i actually bought the ford,ranger,and i absolutely,hated the thing about two weeks in i was,like this thing is a pile of trash,that feels good i feel better about that,decision it has now been fixed i have,changed the name of this truck to a ford,ranger now i feel better about this,purchase im no longer driving a ford,maverick i am driving the all-new 2022,ford ranger its pretty remarkable,theres a few things i would say that i,would definitely not want on this truck,and its the orange the orange is pretty,distracting it grabs my eyes im not a,big fan of why certain things are orange,in this truck you know lets put your,phone right here thats thats all well,and good its just,its its a little its a little much,obviously we have the nice,nice beautiful seats right here,i love these seats the nice orange,stitching to go with our crazy orange,uh calipol not even cupholders but a,phone holder and then we have the vents,with orange on thats cute and,everything a couple of things that,really kind of irritated me right when,you first get in is,theyre trying to give you that optimal,space for storage i totally get im okay,with all of that,but theres certain areas where i,wouldnt put even,i wouldnt put anything in there even,change or even i wouldnt put any its,kind of a useless space they could have,done something different i,do,appreciate a few things on this truck,one i am a six foot three guy 270 pounds,i dont feel cramped i actually have,loads of room and i like that i dont i,mean for a twenty six thousand dollar,truck i mean twenty four thousand dollar,track less than thirty thousand period,it is actually quite roomy in here the,door are quite funky not a big fan of,the door handles im used to having an,actual handle here so its this is,missing i i dont,i get that but i like it its weird and,then,to top it all off weve got cubby holes,i know saying we want to see this thing,on the outside and look at it its way,too windy i really dont want to deal,with trying to fight the wind today this,is oklahoma if you know what i mean,if you live here you just you understand,theres not a 100 perfect day in,oklahoma and when they do come around,its so short of a time span before a,tornado comes through now they have,these cup holder pockets which is great,you could put your bottle right here,okay thats all well and good but what,in the hell is i mean thats thats deep,thats a deep cubby hole i dont get,that,why why they could have just opened this,thing up just a little bit more and made,it towards a little bit more useful that,is,thats somewhere you can lose stuff you,can hide your stash your pot in there,and hopefully the detector or whoevers,pulled you over because youre looking,like a lunatic in a lunar tickle vehicle,now,storage wise on the inside of the truck,thats one of i mean we got pretty good,storage here,obviously we got pretty good storage,here we got areas to put our phones we,got areas there for water bottles,obviously what i like about everything,being so low down here is youre not,gonna bump into it which is great i love,that i am going to,move this dial around and now its,locked,i i still i dont get that i dont like,this when you turn it on to go from park,reverse neutral or even drive there is,no stop in it it will continuously turn,continuously look at that i can just,keep,turning it,i dont know if im in drive or where i,am at but obviously theres an indicator,up here where it tells you what gear,youre in but still this this would be,great for i dont i dont want to have,to i want to keep my eyes on the road i,dont have to keep looking down i dont,want to keep looking over here i want to,keep my eyes on the road and know,exactly what im doing,now at the end of the day,is that dial going to affect an

I Finally Got a New Ford Maverick and Heres What I Really Think of It

rev up your engines,all right today im going to talk about,the ford maverick not the car the pickup,truck theyre just starting to roll them,out and as per usual im going to tell,you the truth this isnt some dealer,demo they sent and paid me money to say,all kinds of great stuff about them this,is an actual guy in virginia who bought,it and were gonna get the truth about,it not lies from some company but the,truth about me analyzing it and him,telling his experience so far if you get,the base model its cheaper than a model,t ford when you add inflation today a,model t ford will be about 25 grand and,they start at 20. theyre definitely,lower price they are made in mexico,theyre not a full frame theyre a,unibody construction like a lot of the,smaller vehicles are these days almost,all suvs these days are unibody theyre,not body on frame now i gotta say,theyre a nice looking truck this is an,xlt this is a higher end one this is an,all-wheel drive version which most,people are gonna like for one reason,its a permanent all-wheel drive system,just itself with computers so youre,gonna get the best handling now,interestingly enough the cheaper,mavericks theyre only front-wheel drive,and you might think front-wheel drive,pickup truck pickup trucks are all,rear-wheel drive no their theory is,completely different a lot better gas,mods with front-wheel drive than wheel,drive its more efficient theres less,power loss between the transmission and,the wheels and two they handle a whole,lot better you get an average rear wheel,drive pickup truck they spin all over,the place especially in the snow and wet,roads front wheel drive is better these,things actually handle a lot better with,just the front wheel drive and of course,this is all-wheel drive so it handles,even better now that choice is up to you,do you want to spend extra for all-wheel,drive are you happy with front-wheel,drive if youre one of those guys thats,going out in the woods in the country on,dirt roads mud maybe you live where it,snows and sleets a lot the all-wheel,drive is going to be more for you,all-wheel drive front-wheel drive it,doesnt matter in the snow the more,important thing is your tires if youre,really going in snows you have to ditch,these tires and put more aggressive no,tires on these are all seasoned tires,the continental tires theyre good tires,but realize another thing lets say you,brought the front wheel drive only,version you can get away with just,buying front wheel drive snow tires and,drive it perfectly fine if you got an,all-wheel drive system all four wheels,have to have the same exact tires on,them because of the design of the,all-wheel drive system or will wear,things out faster if youre thinking,all-wheel drive think you also gotta buy,four snow tires in the winter all the,same where you could get away with just,snow tires on the front if you go for,front wheel drive the long run its,gonna be a lot cheaper with a front,wheel drive now these things come with a,bunch of different engines but this is,the xlt so some strange reason you gotta,pull it twice,i know maybe they think that clientele,is dumb and theyre going to pull it,driving down the road so they got to do,it twice well whatever its a,four-cylinder engine and as you can see,heres a high-pressure pump its an,ecoboost engine its got gasoline direct,injection it puts out some decent,horsepower now it doesnt put out the,191 combined horsepower if you had,bought the hybrid version because thats,got a gasoline and an electric motor,that one puts out 191 horsepower engine,puts out 250 horsepower you get a lot,more horsepower now thats where you got,to decide what do you want to buy do you,want to get a conventional four-cylinder,engine with 250 horsepower or do you,want to get a hybrid one that has an,atkinson cycle engine thats more,complex nobody knows how to work on them,and an electric motor which is much more,complex to get a total of 191 horsepower,truthfully id probably go for this,engine youre going to get better gas,mileage out of the hybrid of course,average over 30 miles a gallon this,particular one on his trip he said he,got about 25 miles a gallon not bad for,a pickup truck thats got 250 horsepower,you know theres nothing wrong with that,at all but if youre the person who,wears more gas mileage,then youd want to go with the hybrid,version because youre going to get,better gas mods with the hybrid theres,no arguing that now as it stands today,at least with the list price youd pay 2,000 2500 bucks more for the hybrid than,you would for this but lets face it,its a pickup truck americans want a,little bit of power in their pickup,trucks most people will probably be a,lot happier having a 250 horsepower and,losing a little bit of the gas mileage,because theyre going to be able to pull,more realistically in the real world you,know the ratings dont mean anything you,can rate things all kinds of ways with,250 horsepower youre going to be able,to carry more and pull more thats just,the way that it is in the real world,its pretty well laid out,easy to work on theres the spark plugs,theres the fuel pump theres a lot of,working room if you need to do anything,in the future and as you can see when we,go underneath we really cant see,anything because its got all this,plastic wrap but it is all-wheel drive,theres the driveshaft for the front and,when we go to the back theres the,differential and you can see theres a,lot of ford technology in this we got a,lot of aluminum parts for less weight,got a decent suspension system in the,back too its modernized its not just a,plain old solid axle theyre independent,suspension and a cv shaft coming out of,both sides its not rough and tumble,like an old solid axle just going,straight to the wheels where they dont,ride all that well and you can see like,i said,its unibody construction,its all one piece welded together sort,of like a frame here you know but its,all connected and welded together it,doesnt on both and yes your truck,lovers everywhere it still has a spare,tire,a real spare tire,not some baby spare tire something you,can actually use in an emergency its a,low-priced truck but its still got,discs in the back and discs in the front,got a reasonable amount of room with,four doors hes a smart man hes got a,fire extinguisher here quite a bit of,room now it is an economy car so it,doesnt have the old ford sliding window,you know youd have to add that extra,yourself that started up its a bit,shorter than me so now theyre autonomy,cars so you got a hand slide what the,heck it works as good as anything else,and it wont break either so,check it out its actually got a key i,like keys keys are harder to steal,easier to work on sure its got a,smaller screen but its an economy,vehicle and theres still crazy a lot of,stuff on it none of these electronic,transmissions but what can you do thats,how they make them these days well first,we got to turn the parking brake off,because its electronic parking brakes,im not a fan of it either but the first,thing i notice is i put it in gear its,not shaking at all got a pretty good,backup camera look its going to keep me,from running into the neighbors mailbox,again put it back in drive and take off,now the first thing you notice its a,little pickup truck but its reasonably,high up in the air and yes they are made,in mexico but on this particular one,i gotta say im pretty impressed by the,quality because as we take a corner here,i dont hear any creaking or rattling,and it actually rides quite smooth now,ive read all about these but its the,first one ive driven and i do have to,say it handles much better than any,little bitty pickup truck ive ever been,in branded this is an all-wheel drive,version thats set up to handle quite,well but from what i read about the,front wheel drive ones they also handle,quite well anybody out there got a,front-wheel drive one hey id like to,compare it this is the four-cylinder,two-liter fords been making it for,quite s

We drive the BASE Ford Maverick! | 2022 Ford Maverick Review

we love pickup trucks here in america the  best-selling trucks they hugely outsell the  ,most popular crossovers and sedans its not  even close but today were driving a truck  ,from a storied american automaker that looks  feels and drives more like a crossover than  ,it does a pickup this is the 2022 ford maverick  specifically the base xl trim for folks who want  ,basic utility out of a pickup this is the  maverick theyre likely going to purchase  ,it has an incredibly interesting value  proposition but does that make it a good buy  ,well before we find out please dont forget  to subscribe to the cargurus youtube channel  ,and head over to cargurus.com where you can  now sell your vehicle 100 online just enter  ,a few details to receive the best instant  cash offer sourced from our network of  ,thousands of dealerships its so simple get  an offer have your car picked up get paid  ,now there are two mini trucks on the market  compare this maverick to the equally petite  ,hyundai santa cruz though and it at least looks  more trucky the vertical grille is crossed by this  ,horizontal bar hosting the ford logo front and  center and then theres the interlocking headlight  ,design its all more upright and pragmatic looking  than the santa cruzs stylish front end moving  ,down the side youve got this squared up c pillar  the short bed these black plastic door handles  ,this looks like a truck were driving the lowest  cost trim level a point thats really driven home  ,by the 17-inch steel wheels these look like  something youd pull out of a salvage yard to  ,mount your snow tires on and yet so many people  love them theyre like the mavericks way of  ,hanging a sign around its neck that just says im  here to work at the back ford has stamped the name  ,maverick in big letters and the license plate  is mounted to the side of our optional trailer  ,hitch receiver this really is a great looking  vehicle it looks the part and despite its size  ,it really does look like a work truck but  its one thing to look like a hard worker  ,another thing to be a hard worker the mavericks  4.5 foot bed is small but its not as small as the  ,santa cruzs bed we also have this flip out bed  extender which helps increase the usable length  ,even without the bed extender ford has built in  some tricks to help you get the most out of the  ,maverick for instance you can reposition the angle  of the tailgate by changing the attachment points  ,from here to here that means that you can lay in a  sheet of plywood over the wheel wells and have it  ,sit flush across the tailgates lip then theres  fords flex bed system essentially were talking  ,about engineered in slots in the bed designed to  hold two by fours you can build all sorts of rigs  ,with this setup many of which ford offers plans  for you also have pre-wired 12-volt power sources  ,behind these plates and then there is the ford  integrated tether system or fits fits is a series  ,of slots designed to secure 3d printed items like  a trash bin or a cup holder all sorts of stuff  ,ford has released cad files for a bunch of  different integrations but it seems like the  ,possibilities are pretty much endless assuming  you have a 3d printer and an engineers mind  ,now sitting in the back seat well the maverick is  small and i guess we knew that the drivers seat  ,is currently set for my height and back here  i have space but not ample space particularly  ,down at my feet if i were any taller i dont  think i could really get comfortable back here,theres a lot of plastic in here the good news  is that it looks genuinely cool and it can look  ,even cooler with a two-tone design  thats available on other trims  ,the bad news is that it is still  plastic it still feels like plastic and  ,driving over crappy roads on a cold day well  it still sounds like plastic there are a lot  ,of squeaks but for petes sake the plastic is  part of the mavericks ethos this truck is all  ,about providing what you need and not much of  what you dont the best part of that ethos is  ,the price tag even after options and delivery  our test truck only ran about 23 maybe 24 grand  ,but the worst part is well its everything you  have to give up to get that price no leather no  ,sunroof no keyless entry i know matt i dont  want those things anyways well trust me this  ,feels more spartan than you think theres no  lights for the vanity mirrors the manual sliding  ,rear window thats an option and this is how you  turn the car on thats right a physical key you  ,can get remote start but youre still gonna turn a  key not push a button to get your maverick started,under the hood we have the base two and a half  liter four-cylinder engine its a hybrid with  ,front-wheel drive all-wheel drive is not available  with the hybrid powertrain and it uses a cvt it  ,makes 191 horsepower 155 pound-feet of torque  so yeah i mean this has a truck bed but in every  ,other regard this is a car its a front-wheel  drive unibody car with great fuel economy the epa  ,rates the hybrid maverick at 42 miles per gallon  in the city 42 33 on the highway 37 combined weve  ,been getting great fuel economy averaging about 38  miles per gallon in combined driving now you can  ,also get a maverick with a more powerful and more  expensive 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes  ,250 horsepower 277 pound-feet of torque and it  pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission  ,maybe most notably that one you can get with  either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive  ,it also doubles the towing capacity from 2000  pounds to 4 000 pounds but it keeps payload at  ,1500 pounds it also doesnt get nearly as good  fuel economy at 23 city 30 highway 26 combined  ,the hybrid makes a bit of that hybrid car  noise particularly under braking and our  ,tester is predictably slow off the line but once  youre moving the maverick really scoots its  ,a terrific powertrain although as a northerner i  deeply deeply want all-wheel drive with the hybrid  ,it doesnt weigh much as equipped ours is a little  under 3 700 pounds so its a little bouncy which  ,is added to by the suspension theres a mcpherson  front but in the back its just a torsion beam  ,overall it it definitely feels more like a truck  than the hyundai santa cruz but it feels less like  ,a truck than well you know every other truck on  the market fords fitted this with a few driving  ,modes including normal eco and sport plus slippery  and tow and haul modes buy a maverick with the fx4  ,off-road package and eco and sport get  replaced by mud and ruts and sand modes  ,overall the maverick drives well enough  for its intended purpose i mean this is  ,this is not a sports car but all of  the little plastic bits on the interior  ,they did make a fair bit of noise particularly  when i was driving over some crummy pavement  ,the tech offering in this truck leaves a bit to be  desired you dont get front-running infotainment  ,software and what you do get runs on a relatively  small 8-inch screen this cubby next to the  ,screen is frankly sort of useless but its mere  existence has me thinking that maybe its just  ,ford pre-engineering a way to swap in a larger  screen down the road maybe in the 2023 maverick  ,i certainly hope thats the case sync 3 not to  be confused with sync 4 which is fords latest  ,infotainment software sync 3 is only optional  and its only optional on the lariat trim you  ,cant even get it on the xl or the xlt you get two  standard usb ports two more are optional wireless  ,phone charging is available but apple carplay and  android auto both still require a wired connection  ,and if you want satellite radio well you have to  get the lariat trim and throw in some extra cash  ,because it requires sync 3. if you want satellite  radio and you just have an xl trim tough  ,the driver information display in our tester  is super small too which limits the amount you  ,can see you can upgrade to a larger six  and a half inch display on th
