Ford's new small truck is available with a hybrid 2.5L or a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder for an extra $1100. For another $3500 get all-wheel drive. Instead of sharing parts and mechanicals with the slightly larger Ranger truck, the Maverick will ride on the same chassis as the new Bronco.
It will go on sale this fall starting at $21,490. Many people don't want to buy sedans any more. For those tired of driving SUVs this new Ford could be just what they didn't know they were looking for.
