Not efficient is based on what you are comparing. Much more efficient than my current vehicle. More efficient than most other AWD or 4WD configs. My guess it will get better than posted but even if it doesn’t it’s not horrible. AWD with towing and FX4 averaging 25 works just fine for me especially since I live in an area that gets snow, sleet, freezing rain and we don’t close the state when we do.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect that, mine just happens to be different.

Umm, not sure where to start. I've owned a couple of Honda elements - 160hp engine that managed 21mpg on a good tank of gas. The Maverick is a 250hp engine that bests that value by 20%. This is a really good number for an engine with that much power. It is also about 10% better than the Hyundai Santa Cruz (either engine).

Additionally, the Hybrid is only going to beat that highway rating by about 15% if the 34mpg Ford initially stated is true.

So, just because it isn't the Hybrid, does not mean it isnt a comparatively efficient vehicle in its class. It is competing with most SUVs that cost similarly if not more, and more often with less power.

If most of your driving is city miles then yes it is bad. 22 MPG bad.

We already have seen that the Hyundai Santa Cruz sucks in fuel economy (23 overall, 26 highway, 21 city) the Maverick EcoBoost only having one more MPG (22 vs 21) in city driving is nothing to write home about.

I have seen people switch from Hybrid to EcoBoost to get their Maverick built faster. Just remember what you are giving up in doing so. Paying $1085 more for the EcoBoost Engine and getting 45% worse city MPG resulting in higher fuel costs.

Its 7 mpg better than my Grand Marquis while having 50 more horsepower and weighing less. Im totally content with 25 combined. Literally no issues with that.
I learned to drive with my grandpas 87 Grand Marquis. If I got in a accident I was going to win! Hahahaha.
