2022 Ford Maverick Regular Cab With Long Bed Is Nothing More Than Wishful Thinking

As the indirect successor to the Courier, the Maverick is only available with four doors as a double cabin with a 4.5-foot bed. Inspired by the Courier-Ute, the pixel artist Joao Kleber Amaral took the liberty of removing the rear doors in favor of a long bed.
Based on the XLT spec, the rendering in front of your eyes isn’t bad. While it promises more cargo volume and a higher payload, on the other hand, the Ford Motor Company isn’t interested in things like that. There are two reasons the Blue Oval doesn’t offer a single cab, starting with the Maverick’s only rival. Considering the Hyundai Santa Cruz is a double cab, then why would the Dearborn bean counters take the first step?

Second and foremost, regular taxis are not as popular as double cabins. We have seen this preference for several years in the luxury and mid-range truck segments. In other words, spending money researching and developing an unpopular option is the perfect recipe for losing money.

As for the elephant in the room, we also need to remember that a lot of people buy the Maverick and Santa Cruz because they’re cooler than the crossovers they’re based on. Under these circumstances, the anticipation of a normal taxi is nothing more than a delusion.

Made in Mexico at the same factory where Ford makes the Bronco Sport, the all-new Maverick is unbeatable in two ways. The starting price of $ 19,995 for the XL and the incredible fuel economy of the hybrid drive are the culprits. But more importantly, the Maverick helps people who have previously been interested in an escape or bronco sport stand out from the crowd.

The XLT that the rendering is based on is $ 22,280 while the Lariat is $ 25,490 before options and target fee. Only the available 2.0L turbo can be upgraded to all-wheel drive, and the latter is definitely worth the money as you get independent rear suspension too. The front-powered hybrid rocks a twist beam rear end with force-vectoring springs inspired by the Fiesta ST Hot Hatchback that Ford sells in Europe.
