The all-new Ford Maverick pickup is loaded with features, comes standard as a hybrid, and is available at a reasonable price point. Better yet for Ford, Chevrolet doesn’t make a competitor.
This morning Ford unveiled their all-new Maverick compact truck. Ford calls the feature-rich pickup a “truck for people who never knew they wanted a truck.”
There’s a lot to unpack about the Ford Maverick and we’ll cover the compact pickup in more depth over the next few days. But for now, enjoy this quick rundown of everything important about the new truck along with a host of photos so you can take a look at it for yourself.
As you’ll see the Maverick is small. Super small. Will such a tiny truck even sell? Is there a market for a truck that has a bed only barely bigger than a few coolers? I guess we’ll see.
Do you think Chevrolet should make a competition to the Maverick? Would an all-new El Camino be right up your alley? We’ll find out if Chevy has an answer.
