Maverick XL, $21,490
This starting price nets you a Maverick XL with the standard hybrid powertrain, front-wheel drive and manufacturer-estimated EPA fuel economy ratings of 40/33/37 mpg city/highway/combined. All-wheel drive is available, but only with the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. It’s a very bare-bones-looking pickup, especially with its 17-inch steel wheels, but inside the Maverick is anything but. It comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen display with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot (via subscription after the free trial runs out), forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and the trick Flexbed. Oh, and it has over 500 miles of estimated range and is rated for 1,500 pounds of payload and 2,000 pounds of towing.
Other standard features include:
- Underseat rear storage
- Cloth seating upholstery
- Two USB ports
- Power windows, locks
- Tilt/telescoping steering wheel
- Keyless entry
Maverick XLT, $23,775
At the middle of the Maverick lineup is the XLT. At this level, buyers get a nicer-looking interior, 17-inch aluminum wheels, extra bed tie-downs and a bed storage cubby. The $2,345 XLT Luxury Package adds heated seats and side mirrors, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and six-way adjustable passenger seat, remote start, and an extra rear USB port. It also upgrades the bed with a spray-in bedliner, LED lighting and bed tie-down rails with two locking brackets.
Maverick Lariat, $26,985
Above the XLT is the Lariat, which rides on standard 18-inch wheels and adds a number of comfort features. Those include Desert Brown ActiveX upholstery (imitation leather), eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a power-sliding rear window and improved soundproofing. The Lariat also upgrades the instrument cluster with a 6.5-inch display between the gauges.
A $3,340 Lariat Luxury Package adds many of the same goodies from the XLT version, but it also includes an eight-speaker premium Bang & Olufsen stereo, wireless charging pad, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane-centering steering, evasive steering assist, rear parking sensors and Ford’s Sync 3 (versus the latest Sync 4).
The Lariat can also be equipped as a First Edition for $1,495, but it requires the Lariat Luxury Package. Mostly an appearance package, the First Edition adds unique exterior graphics, black-painted roof and mirror caps, a soft-folding bed cover and a power moonroof.
Optional Engine, All-Wheel Drive, Towing Capacity
The 250-horsepower EcoBoost four-cylinder is optional at all levels and is the only way to get a Maverick will all-wheel drive or the optional 4,000-pound max towing package ($745). The EcoBoost is a $1,085 option and AWD will cost an extra $2,220 on top of that; the total cost is $3,305 in addition to each trims’ respective starting price.
AWD XLT and Lariat models can be equipped with Ford’s well-known FX4 Off-Road Package ($800). For the Maverick, it adds unique 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, skid plates, heavy-duty radiator and engine cooling, hill descent control and selectable off-road driving modes. XLT models with the FX4 package also get a 6.5-inch instrument panel display, which is already standard on the Lariat.
XLT and Lariat models are available with Ford Co-Pilot 360 ($540), which adds blind spot warning and lane departure warning with lane keep assist.
With all the options, a Maverick Lariat First Edition can top $36,000 before you add additional accessories. That may seem like a lot for a small pickup, but a 2021 Ranger Lariat is more than $40,000 before any options.
