Ford Maverick Returns as a Tiny Truck
The Ford Maverick was a compact car manufactured and marketed by Ford for model years 1970–1977 in the United States, originally as a two-door sedan employing a rear-wheel drive platform original to the 1960 Falcon.

Now the Ford Maverick returns for 2022 as a gas-powered entry-level tiny truck, even smaller than the Ford Ranger, and the first unibody Ford truck in decades.

The Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico will be the production site for all North American units, including those intended for the United States.

This baby truck's powerplants will focus on economy and consumers may opt for a turbocharged 1.5L I-3 or a turbocharged 2.0L I-4. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines.

The base model pricing is expected to be around $20,000 and deliveries are expected to begin before the end of this year.
