The Maverick XL is the base model

The Maverick XL (and all Maverick trucks, for that matter) comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that’s matched to a hybrid system, according to Edmunds. That setup makes 191 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. You can upgrade to a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This can come with front or all-wheel drive.

The 2022 Ford Maverick XL also comes with LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, and rear under-seat storage compartments. Cloth seats are standard in the XL, as is an eight-inch touchscreen that’s compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s a six-speaker sound system in the Maverick XL and it also has forward collision warning.

The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT is the best version to buy

The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT starts at $23,775. Edmunds calls the 2022 Ford Maverick XLT the best version to get. The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT comes with all of the things that the 2022 Ford Maverick XL does, but it adds alloy wheels, upgraded upholstery, and a rear center armrest with cupholders. The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT also comes with a power-locking tailgate and cruise control.

The Maverick Lariat is the top-of-the line Ford truck

The 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat is the most expensive Maverick model. It starts at $26,985. Inside the Maverick Lariat you’ll get keyless entry with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and simulated leather upholstery. The 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat also comes with a power-adjustable driver’s seat and power-sliding rear window. You’ll get rear-seat map pockets and an upgraded driver information display as well. Two backseat USB ports also come in the 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat.

There’s also a Lariat Luxury package which adds on two household power outlets, a spray-in bed liner, and an upgraded infotainment interface. The Lariat Luxury package includes a wireless charging pad, which is becoming a much-coveted accessory in new vehicles. There’s also a nice premium sound system.

As far as seats in the Lariat Luxury package, they’re heated, as is the steering wheel. There’s adaptive cruise control and adaptive cruise control, as well as evasive steering assist.

Each of the Ford Maverick trim levels offers something for truck shoppers. If you want a basic compact pickup truck that will get the job done without costing you too much, the 2022 Ford Maverick XL may be a great choice. The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT offers a blend of basics and comfort at a reasonable price. The 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat has high-end touches that might make you forget you’re in a truck that costs less than $30,000. No matter which Maverick model you choose, you’re sure to love it.
