Introduction:
Hello fellow enthusiasts, I'm Mau, and I'm here to share my one-year journey with the 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat FX4. After clocking 10,000 miles, from bustling city streets to the challenging dunes of Huacachina and the high altitudes of the Andes in Peru, this Maverick has seen a lot!

Design & Aesthetics: A Fresh Take on Pickups
Right off the bat, the Maverick's design struck a chord with me. Ford really outdid themselves here. The exterior design is a refreshing departure from its siblings, the Ranger and F-150, with an aesthetic that’s more me. Inside, the cabin is a blend of practicality and style, with those copper-brown accents and a bluish-gray palette adding a classy touch. Yes, the plastics are a bit on the softer side, but hey, they’ve held up well so far!

Engine & Performance: Turbocharged Trailblazer
Now, let's talk heart and muscle. The 2-liter turbocharged engine, packing 250 horsepower, is an absolute gem, especially at 5,000 meters above sea level in the Andes. Whether it's overtaking convoys on steep climbs or maneuvering through city traffic, this engine never feels out of breath.

Handling & Suspension: Jack of All Terrains
Handling? It's like a race car in truck's clothing! Curves are a delight, and the suspension – oh, the suspension! It's a beautiful balance of rugged and refined. The FX4 package adds an extra layer of capability, whether I'm navigating dirt roads or cruising highways.

Modifications: My Maverick, My Way
I couldn’t resist some personal touches. Those original Scorpio AT tires? Swapped with Pirelli Scorpion AT+ 245s for an aggressive stance and better grip. Add to that a Rough Country 2-inch lift kit, and now we're talking over 11 inches of ground clearance. This Maverick doesn't just look like a pickup; it’s a statement!

Tech & Infotainment: A Mixed Bag
Here's where the Maverick shows its quirks. The infotainment system, with Ford Sync 2.5, isn't the snappiest. It has its moments of freeze and reboot, which can be a bit of a downer. But, thanks to the Motorola MA1 Android Auto wireless connector, connectivity is a breeze. Just hop in, and in 30 seconds, you're connected – no strings attached!

Practicality & Safety: City Slicker with a Wild Side
What I love is how it fits into my urban lifestyle. Parking? No sweat. The Maverick's size is perfect for city escapades. The intelligent all-wheel drive is a marvel, dynamically shifting power for optimal traction and stability, whether I’m tackling city corners or sandy dunes.

Off-Roading: Dune Conqueror
Speaking of dunes, the sand mode in Huacachina's challenging dunes was a revelation. Even with smaller tires, the Maverick climbed every hill, proving its mettle as a surprisingly capable off-roader.

The Maverick's Kryptonite: Missing Manual Shifters
If I had to nitpick, it’s the absence of manual shifters. Descending the Andes could have been tricky without them, but the "tow mode" became my unexpected hero, providing the necessary engine braking.

Final Thoughts: A Maverick in True Sense
After a year with the Maverick, it’s clear – this isn't just a vehicle; it’s a versatile companion. Sure, it has its quirks and could use some tech upgrades, but the overall experience? It’s a ride I’d happily take again. Whether you’re an urban dweller, an off-road enthusiast, or someone who appreciates a well-rounded machine, the 2022 Ford Maverick Lariat FX4 is a contender worth considering.

Here's to more adventures and miles on this trusty steed!

Love seeing our Mavericks in all different scenarios. Passing convoys on those Andes mountain roads takes a solid pair of nards. :ROFLMAO:

One of the top posts I have seen on MTC. You did a fantastic job of reviewing the Maverick, along with great pics. Each time I get into my Maverick Lariat, I never cease to be amazed at such a fabulous vehicle priced well below other trucks. There is not much I could drive that could even come close to it. Keep up the good work with your Maverick in the south country.

Nice review. After that long trip do you have any problems with that 2" lift? Body or suspension lift?
Just a bit of rubbing on the front left tire, might be more related to the actual tire than the lift kit.

No issues at all, I though on road handling might get compromised due to lifting the center of gravity however it handles just fine. No complains. If there is any down side at all, the added 2" ground clearance for sure makes up for it. Before lifting i would easily scratch the bottom of the truck on most light off-roading, not anyore.

What size tires are you running? 245/65R17? Wildpeaks look great on those wheels.

These are Pirelli Scorpion AT Plus tires, size 245/70/R17. These should raise the ground clearance by approximately an inch.

As for fuel consumption, it averages around 7.4 liters per 100 kilometers, or 17.5 miles per gallon. I do have a penchant for driving fast and often press hard on the accelerator, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the performance of every gallon of fuel 🔥
