The 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat can get pretty pricey
The 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat is much more expensive than the base model Maverick. The Maverick starts at just $19,995. The Maverick Lariat starts at $25,860. The Lariat has many package options and is offered with an additional engine option as well.
The Ford Maverick is a standard hybrid pickup truck. Ford offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 250 horsepower for folks who want more giddyup out of their small pickup. It costs an additional $2,965 to add the EcoBoost engine option and all-wheel drive to the Lariat trim.
Consumers can add the 4k Tow Package to increase the small truck’s towing capacity from 2,000 lbs to 4,000 lbs for $745. The First Edition Package adds hood and side graphics decals, a power tilt/slide moon roof, a soft-folding tonneau cover, and additional cosmetic features for $1,495. It also includes the Lariat Luxury Package as a bundle with heated seats, a heated steering wheel, LED box lighting, rear parking sensors, and plenty of other great features.
After destination charges, this specific configuration and package combination will run you $37,300. This doesn’t include taxes and additional fees. Ford offers plenty of accessories as well, so some Maverick buyers could pay closer to $40K by the time they’re done custom ordering their Maverick Lariat.
The Ford Maverick is well-rounded
The 2022 Ford Maverick isn’t designed for towing heavy loads, but Ford does its best to satisfy the needs of different consumers by offering a 4K Towing Package. The Blue Oval even offers a FX4 Off-Road package for $800. The package includes all-terrain tires, skid plates, different driving modes, and Hill Descent Control. Ford clearly wants to make the Maverick as useful as possible for different types of consumers.
The Maverick can tow small loads with the 4K Towing Package or manage mild trails with the FX4 Off-Road Package. It truly shines when consumers stick with the standard hybrid engine. According to Car and Driver, the small pickup achieves an incredible 42 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s historic fuel efficiency for a truck.
The Ford Maverick provides great value for its price
The Maverick provides incredible value for its price, even at its most expensive trim level. The Maverick Lariat is within the same price range as the base model Ford Ranger and comes with more standard features. Whether you choose the standard base model hybrid or add tons of packages to the Lariat, the Maverick is one of the best small pickup truck deals available.
