It’s no secret that the 2022 Ford Maverick has been an immensely popular pickup truck. In fact, it has been so popular, that buyers have been having problems finding one. And, Ford was even forced to place a pause on orders. Meaning if you want to custom order a new Maverick compact truck, you may have to wait until the 2023 model is released. Which can certainly be frustrating when all that you want to do is buy this Ford truck. Recently, Ford did give some communication to hopeful buyers, and that is that Ford Maverick orders are being scheduled when they are received.

Depending on your area, finding a new Ford Maverick truck available to order or at a dealership may be a difficult experience. For one, customer orders are closed until August of this year, which means you’ll be forced to buy second-hand or find something at a dealership if you want to buy the 2022 Ford Maverick pickup truck.

But, Ford has stated that orders of this small truck are being built as they are received. And this will help to get the Ford Maverick to places where it is sought-after most. Still, according to Ford Authority, some early adopters of the 2022 Maverick have yet to receive their truck. 

How well is the 2022 Maverick pickup truck selling?

The 2022 Ford Maverick is selling extremely well, even outselling the new Ford Ranger in Q1 of 2022. The popularity of this truck is reflected in just how difficult it can be to buy. If you have been waiting to take delivery of your new Ford Maverick, the news that orders are being scheduled as they are received should be some welcome news. But when it comes to getting a new pickup truck, waiting can most definitely be a test of patience.

But according to Ford Authority, Ford will resume taking Maverick pickup truck orders come August of 2022. This is good news for those who want to buy a new compact truck. Although, it is still a bit of a wait. 

What kind of updates could the 2023 Maverick have?

In terms of Ford Maverick updates for 2023, there may not be many. But, recently a test Maverick truck was spotted with what appears to be dual exhaust and other changes. Because of this, speculation has started that Ford could be planning a performance version of its compact pickup truck. It could mean an ST model, or maybe Ford will be adding its Rattler package to the Maverick. Either way, the return of small, fast trucks would be a good thing.

Another, non-vehicle-related update we would like to see is improved handling of orders. Hopefully, once the 2023 Ford Maverick is released, Ford is better prepared for just how popular this vehicle is. That way, more buyers can get behind the wheel of this compact truck. Allowing more Maverick models to get on area roads. Until then, the brand will continue to work on delivering 2022 models.
