Simple and honest: Two words that describe the 2022 Ford Maverick's styling.
This compact truck's flanks are unadorned and clean, an unusual sight in the 21st century.
The interior is similarly plain, but it's well-built and looks far better than it should given this vehicle's low price.
Some of the plastic trimmings are made with ground-up carbon fiber, which increases its strength and gives it a cool look.
Despite being just 4.5 feet long, the Maverick's Flexbed is super versatile.
The tailgate can be locked in a mid position, allowing the Maverick to handle 8-foot-long building materials without trouble.
A hybrid powertrain is the standard offering, but you can also get a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with a potent 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque.
That up-level engine is strong and refined; scarcely any powertrain vibration can be felt in the passenger compartment.
Bright-orange accents liven up the otherwise plain interior.
