2022 ford maverick hybrid mpg confirmed

When I wrote my 2022 Ford Maverick review a month or so ago, I didn’t know the mpg of the hybrid version.

No one did. Because it wasn’t finalized yet.

Now, it has been.

Ford says that the trucks will have EPA-estimated fuel economy of 42 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 37 mpg combined, with a range over 500 miles.

Hybrids are expected to ship in December, with the first customers taking delivery in January of 2022. All hybrid production for 2022 is set to be spoken for by November, according to Ford. Once that happens, orders for hybrids will close until next summer.

Naturally, Ford is tooting its own horn.

“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter 4-cylinder automatic (variable gear ratio) gasoline engine. At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects,” said Chris Mazur, Ford Maverick chief engineer, in the press release.

As I said in my review, the hybrid model will be preferable for those looking for a lower MSRP or better fuel economy. If those things don’t matter to you and/or you’re an impatient sort, you can get your grubby mitts on the 2.0-liter four-cylinder version, which is very much not a hybrid, more easily.

    That’s it? For a hybrid? How pathetic is that? And it’s still puzzling that Ford flat out refuses to offer the hybrid powertrain with AWD. This “truck” is nothing more than an Escape with a bed and the Escape, despite is many faults, offers the hybrid with AWD. This mileage would be decent for an AWD model but for a FWD model and considering the super cheap build quality and interior (but hey saving weight right) the fuel economy is unfortunate. But this is to be expected when you have the absolute worst engineers in the industry designing the worst vehicles in the industry.

      @ToolGuy "But if all you ever do is complain, and if the only tone you ever take is super-negative ultra-sarcastic, people tend to tune you out. And then they dismiss the Very Valid Points that might be buried in all that negativity." Thing is, nothing I post is negative. It's simply the truth. Those who view it as negative are simply biased and the truth bothers them. They can't handle it. Therefore they try and silence it. Sounds exactly like our current, installed administration.

    40 mpg is good for any truck even if it is based on an Escape. A truck is not as aerodynamic as a car especially when compared to a Prius. The boxy shape of the Maverick takes away from the efficiency but if you want a truck then you are not going to have the most aerodynamic design. 40 mpgs at a little over 20k MSRP starting price is very good for a new vehicle in today's market.

    Unless Subaru "hybridizes" the Outback in the next 18 months, the Maverick hybrid is on my very short list for a 2023 purchase.

    022 Ford Maverick Hybrid EPA Fuel Economy Ratings City Highway Combined 2022 Ford Maverick 2.5L Hybrid FWD 42 MPG 33 MPG 37 MPG 2022 Ford Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 FWD 23 MPG 30 MPG 26 MPG 2022 Ford Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 AWD 22 MPG 29 MPG 25 MPG The hybrid Maverick is officially rated to return 42 miles-per-gallon in the city, 33 on the highway, and 37 combined. Unsurprisingly, that makes it the most fuel-efficient hybrid pickup on sale today, one that will travel over 500 miles on a single tank of gas. It’s capable of achieving these impressive numbers thanks to Ford’s 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine, electronic continuously variable transmission, and a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, with a combined output of 191 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque.
