If the name 'Ford Maverick' rings a bell for you, there's a good reason for that. In the 1970s, the Ford Maverick was a sleek two-door sedan; in 2022, the name has been renewed for an exciting new compact pickup truck. Ford's smallest truck, the Maverick, boasts composed handling and an SUV-like feel, meaning it straddles a range of needs. With two strong powertrain options, an attractive interior, and a base hybrid engine, the 2022 Ford Maverick is a fantastic choice for anyone who likes a practical vehicle with a generous side of comfort.

Ford has designed the interior of the Maverick in a way that's both attractive and comfortable. Far from being bare bones, the design is fresh and good-looking.
