Finally posted with test results, with Road Test Score of 78 out of 100, an Overall Score of 74 out of 100 and RECOMMENDED:

https://www.consumerreports.org/cars/ford/maverick/2022/overview/

To see the whole detail, you may need to be a Consumer Reports subscriber.

Tested MPG was: Overall 23 / City 16 / Hwy 32 mpg

Rated well ahead overall of the Santa Cruz. I thought it was a decent test/review.

CU had announced earlier that a Hybrid test will come later.

NOTE: It just disappeared, showing still "IN TEST". CU must be in the process of posting it, but not completely done yet.

That gets just part of it, too. If you try to click on Road Test Report, or View All Ratings & Test Results, it shows still in test.

Maybe by end of the day the whole posting will be up cleanly.

UPDATE: Seems to be completely posted and working cleanly now. Report also says Hybrid version is now in test.

CR's observed MPG is much closer to my own experience than most of the other reviews I've seen.
I have to drive v-e-r-y conservatively to get close to 20 MPG in all-city driving in my AWD EB. Conversely, my highway MPG has been in the low 30s without much effort. I know that mileage suffers at highway speeds over about 70. I rarely drive over 65-70.

I agree, after about a week and 600 miles of driving I'm getting just under 26mpgs. Seems like the sweet spot mpg is on a 50 mph back road

I was able to read the article - it is good for Ford and the Maverick. I really like CRs take on the usability of the Maverick and its approach to be a small truck with similar functionality- seemed to be the reason CR gave it the nod. I agree with that! I still like my SC and will probably like it over the Maverick, once I finally take ownership - for the Luxury and tech features.

I've driven about 250 miles so far and I'm averaging just over 30 MPG's and I'm on pace to get over 500 miles on the first tank of gas. Needless to say, I'm very happy.

For the Santa Cruz SEL Premium 2.5 Turbo tested:

Road Test Score of 77 out of 100 and an Overall Score of 59 out of 100 . Did not get a RECOMMENDED.

https://www.consumerreports.org/cars/hyundai/santa-cruz/2022/overview

To see the whole detail, you may need to be a Consumer Reports subscriber.

Tested MPG was: Overall 24 / City 16 / Hwy 34 mpg

Maverick got an estimated 4 for Reliability vs. a 2 for the Santa Cruz (each out of a maximum of 5). Actual CR reader feedback on the Bronco Sport for Reliability is 5 out of 5. I suspect CR was taking that result into account for the Maverick Reliability estimate, as the Bronco Sport and Maverick are built on the same line in the same plant.
