2022 Ford Maverick Caught In The Bare Metal, Revealing Its Design

2022-ford-maverick-body-in-white-lead.jpg


The Motor1.com reader snapped these fantastic images of the Ford Maverick in the bare body in white, and the person was kind enough to share them with us. The pictures are by far the best look yet at the Blue Oval's upcoming pickup that rides on a unibody platform.

This is purely the body for the Maverick without any extra bits of trim or the interior. In profile, the truck has a pretty strong resemblance to the Ranger but in a slightly smaller footprint. The creases around each wheel well are similar to what's on the F-150.

There's also a shot inside the cargo bed, and it raises some concerns. The area looks very tiny. Getting a 4-foot by 8-foot in there doesn't seem possible. We showed the picture to our partners at RideApart.com and asked about putting a motorcycle back there. They were dubious with comments like: "You wouldn't catch me putting a bike in there," and "Yeah, it looks pretty short for a proper-sized dirtbike to fit."

The Maverick Is Coming:

While this one has no glass, earlier spy shots tell us that the Maverick has a sliding rear window, which should be great bringing a little fresh air into the cabin. In the profile pictures, you can see that there's a hole for a sunroof over the front seats, too.

Mechanically, we know that the Maverick rides on the same platform that's underneath Ford vehicles like the Bronco Sport, Focus, and Escape. This means that lower-tier trims might be front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive should be available. Judging by what the engineers are doing with the Bronco Sport, there's evidence that the company could turn the Maverick into a capable, little off-roader, if there's the proper demand for one.

The Maverick should be on sale in late 2021 or early 2022. Expect the full unveiling to happen next year.

@North7 It was my first car. The 4 door, in GREEN. Since it is looking like this will be an MY22, part of me is thinking about waiting on the Bronco...

If this turns out to be a decent little off-roader, this could make good overlander

The Maverick will be a neat little truck for sure, but I wonder if it will even make a good weekend warrior. I just sold a little '92 Toyota pick-up. And, while I don't think you could kill it with a stick of dynamite, that small bed (53") wasn't large enough to haul many things I needed to carry. I'm sure there will be a market for a truck this size, but I'm not sure how big that market will be. However, I do wish Ford much luck with the Maverick.

I thought this would be closer to the Bronco Sport. I know they're the same platform, but the sheet metal is significantly different. I was thinking it would be a part of the Bronco family but I guess not. Hopefully there will at least be an off-road trim.

Any word on towing capacity for the 4WD version? I need it to be able to tow my boat & trailer (3900 lb.)

Think they’ll make a Lariat edition? That’s what I’d be interested in..

Looks more useful than the Jeep Gladiator bed, That bed has side walls that are very very short and only fit enough for something that lays down flat. If you have any size of taller cargo you need to tie it down or it will fall out.
