The 2023 Ford Maverick Just Got More Expensive
As Ford’s small truck, the Maverick is one of the most desirable vehicles on the market. Back when the Blue Oval opened up orders for the 2023 Ford Maverick, they closed in about a week. And that is a reflection of how much consumers have fallen in love with this compact pickup. But even if you can find a 2023 Maverick, you might be a little disappointed. All trim levels have seen a price increase.
How expensive is the 2023 Ford Maverick?
The 2023 Ford Maverick has an MSRP of $22,595. This is a difference of around $400 from the original cost, which was $22,195. Destination and delivery charges have also increased, but if you haven’t already ordered Ford’s small truck, that probably won’t impact you for a little bit.
When compared to the 2022 Ford Maverick, the 2023 model increased its MSRP by $1k across the board. And while that is not a crazy price change, it does take away some of the value proposition that made so many folks so excited about this compact pickup.
According to Ford Authority, the price change took effect in early February. So, don’t expect to pay the original MSRP of $20k any longer. Clearly, Ford has seen the popularity of its truck, and maybe the brand realized it could get some larger profit margins. But, supply chain issues and inflation might have also been the cause.
The 2023 Maverick is still a great truck
Even though it has experienced a price increase, it’s hard not to love the Maverick. If you’ve seen one driving down a local road, it definitely looks great. And it has some legitimate utility to boot. Perhaps the biggest problem with this pickup is buying one. Read over the number of Ford forums out there, and you can see that some folks are frustrated with the status of their order.
With a vehicle this popular, it would be nice if Ford could keep up with demand. But there are a lot of factors at play when getting this truck to the consumer. We can only hope that as the months go on, actually getting a new Maverick is more accessible for people.
How long will it take to get a 2023 Ford Maverick?
The delivery times of the 2023 Maverick do seem fairly grim; some have reported getting the 2022 Maverick took up to a year. Of course, this all varies on how you have your 2023 Ford Maverick configured. Apparently, different configurations can increase the wait time.
At the end of the day, online orders for Ford’s small truck are closed. This means it will be difficult if you really want to get behind the wheel of a new Maverick. It sounds like the key to getting this compact pickup is patience. That might not be what you want to hear, but ultimately, if the Blue Oval doesn’t have a model to sell you, it just doesn’t have a model to sell you.
