The Hybrid looks great in white with the Lariat trim.
It would look really really great if it were available at a dealership 😆
Fuel economy would be much better if it was an all electric BEV.
It would also be much more expensive. 😉
You would need to charge it, which is woefully impractical.
Looking like Ford has found a sweet spot for “non truck” people with the added incentive of great gas mileage. Now if they can just get them produced
I was helping a friend look for a cost effective, fuel efficient vehicle and it was difficult to find anything less than $30k. The $20k base maverick is the cheapest option and it’s seems pretty great in the base trim, but we couldn’t find any in stock or without crazy markups.
Excellent short video that’s to the point!
32 thousand. Got a loaded CRV for that much.
CRV isn’t a compact pickup. 😉
That’s the Lariat loaded trim, base hybrid Maverick is $20k. Base CRV hybrid is $36k.
Thanks for the video. However, rather than rely on the car’s meter, all you had to do was fill up and divide by the gallons used. Which would be more accurate, pending the instrumented testing.
He’s trying to average across 1000s of miles and the formal MPG testing is coming later (he mentions that)
A calculation on just a single tank is not a good indicator. Too many variables.
Looks like check engine light and battery light is on. Wonder if this hybrid will also face the famous dead Maverick hybrid issue…
if you are talking about when he was showing the cluster that was key on engine off. which the check engine light and battery light is on during this key mode due to the engine/vehicle not running
The hybrid is not available with AWD though. :/
Hopefully the 2023 model will fix that. Of course the mpg will suffer but not as much as the eco boost turbo version.
Thanks for the to the point gas mileage update. Looking forward to the full review later on…
I’m been an Uber driver I’m Chicago for 5 years, i only drive Ford hybrids, i have never had a problem with any of my vehicles, i currently drive a ford fusion 2012 on 180k miles, and my last car was a 2010 fusion that i drove 260k miles ,I sold it for 1k and still drove fine.
Extremely reliable cars.
Didn’t take long for the check engine light to come on…
if you are talking about when he was showing the cluster that was key on engine off. which the check engine light is always on in that key mode.
Content is great, but what is with the vertical and horizontal mixed video? I can understand if that is a small channel with a vlog style, but that’s just too lazy for the content quality.
