2022 Ford Maverick XLT Hybrid Review(s)

Dustin Abbott

March 1st, 2024

There has been a LOT of interest in the Ford Maverick compact truck since its release, and, since I was one of the early recipients of the Maverick (I preordered within about ten days of the announcement), I’ve had the opportunity to really explore the vehicle in a lot of different ways since April of 2022. Since I also happen to be a professional reviewer, I’ve spent some time documenting my findings in a series of reviews. Here’s the most recent, which was a winter-oriented 25,000 mile update:

The 2022 Ford Maverick XLT Hybrid covered here is my own personal vehicle that I purchased in 2022. As always, this is a completely independent review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.



I covered a lot more of the features and strengths of the Maverick in my initial review in 2023, which can be seen here.


Things I Like

  • Interior holding up really well.
  • Seat and steering wheel warmers work fantastic
  • Continues to be incredibly efficient
  • A nice vehicle to drive
  • No actual mechanical issues
  • Even in FWD guise (with good snow tires), it is a confident winter vehicle.
  • Holding its value incredibly well.
  • Versatility exceeds anything else at this price point

Amazing fuel economy.  38.4 MPG overall | as much as 60 MPG in city driving | 44 MPG non winter


Things I Don’t Like

  • Bluetooth connectivity – solved eventually through OTA update
  • Intermittent Approach lights issue – solved after a few visits via
  • Many recalls – at least six
  • No AWD option with Hybrid powertrain


Hypermiling Tip


Love it.  Love the versatility.  Comfortable.  Fuel economy of a compact, size of an Explorer.
