All of the buzz surrounding the 2022 Ford Maverick might seem unfounded, but it isn’t. This little Ford pickup truck might be small in size, but it is huge in what it can offer. With a variety of interior and exterior options available, buyers can add every feature available and still have a reasonably priced truck.

How much is the 2022 Ford Maverick?

The Ford Maverick is starting at $19,995 for the XL trim. Up from the XL is the XLT, starting at $22,280. The top Ford Maverick Lariat trim starts at $25,490. Should buyers want to upgrade to the 2.0L EcoBoost engine, the price jumps a bit. The XL jumps $1,085 to $21,080. The XLT increases to $23,365, and the Lariat increases to $26,575.

However, if you add every available option Ford offers on the Maverick on the online configurator, you can’t get it above $37,000. A few larger packages offered help bump up the price. Since this configuration uses the top Lariat trim, it has the Lariat Luxury Package ($3,340). The added Ford Co-Pilot 360 degree camera monitoring was $540.

The First Edition package is $1,495 and offers 17″ aluminum wheels for the gas engine or 18″ black wheels for the hybrid option. It has a black painted roof, power tilt moon roof, and first edition graphics. The special edition package included the exclusive Area 51 color.

There are a few other available packages but you have to pick between the two. For this exercise, the more expensive option was chosen to demonstrate the highest available price.

Some available 2022 Ford Maverick add-ons

$180 molded splash guards, a bed divider kit ($300), and a tool swing box case ($280) were included. A truck bed liner ($200) and bed extender ($370) were offered, and we chose the most expensive options. $120 hood deflectors and $800 bed cross bars were also added on.

The interior offers were extensive. To be safe, we added all of the assistance kits for $320. The all-weather tray mat set was a reasonable $175, and the console vault ($390) seemed like a reasonable purchase. Most of the audio options were included in the previously mentioned packages.

The 2.5L hybrid engine, front-wheel-drive, and CVT transmission were not able to be modified. These were included in the price already. A full-size spare was included for free, as was a trailer hitch receiver and bed tie-downs.

That makes the base MSRP for the 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat trim $25,490. Every possible addition included came out to an extra $9,045. The destination charge to deliver your new truck is $1,495. The grand total for the Ford Maverick is $36,030. That’s a monthly payment of $473 a month, which could be much higher.

Will there be an electric option in the future?

The 2022 Ford Maverick has a full hybrid engine or an EcoBoost engine for now. With the new Ford F-150 Lightning and the Hyundai Santa Cruz making such a splash, we have to imagine a competing Mqqaverick is coming. In addition, a four-wheel-drive option seems to be missing. This could eliminate the Maverick from a variety of buyers who require it.

Ford has focused on shifting to electric vehicles ahead of 2030, but an electric Maverick option will probably happen sooner than that. While a 2022 Ford Maverick Lightning might not be in the deck right away, it seems likely it is coming. So spec out your future Ford Maverick because it won’t break the bank and who doesn’t want one of the most talked-about new vehicles to hit the market?
