This Is the Ford Maverick Compact Pickup You've Been Waiting to See

Say hello to the Ranger's little brother.

BY PETER HOLDERITH / JANUARY 8, 2021



Up to this point, we haven't heard much about Ford's upcoming compact Maverick pickup. What little we've pieced together has largely come from this picture of a tailgate and a few spy shots. But now, thanks to forum members on MaverickTruckClub, we finally get a good look at the front end of the Blue Oval's upcoming small truck offering.

Not much can be gleaned from the image, such as the ever-important scale of the truck, but we at least get a good look at the headlights, grille, and overall body shape. It's also clear that the truck will be offered in a crew-cab layout, though previous reports indicate that might be it—no single-cab here. That's pretty typical of pickups these days, although it'd be great to have a truly tiny Maverick.


As we've previously surmised, the new Maverick is likely based on the Bronco Sport platform and therefore will be front-wheel-drive based, with AWD available as an option. Kind of like the Honda Ridgeline, then. And seeing as it's based on the Bronco Sport, it will likely share the 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter EcoBoost engines, too. That piece of speculation has been supported by previously leaked docs.

Other details have surfaced as well, such as the truck's assembly location in Hermosillo, Mexico, along with reports that it will share a good number of parts with the Ford Transit Connect. It's expected that, while the Transit doesn't offer a base manual transmission, the Maverick just might, which would be nice. As for the vehicle's overall size, it's rumored to be at least two feet shorter than the Ranger, so a true compact indeed.

In any case, it's nice to finally see Ford's new small truck from the front, even if it's covered in camouflage. Hopefully, there's a Raptor version. That would be sweet.........................

I'm honestly surprised ford is going down this pathway. Definitely interested to see what kind of vehicle it is.

Considering how fucking huge current Rangers are and how much I loved my 95, this interests me quite a bit.

When "compact" means the size of a '97 F-150
i was thinking about this on my drive across the country. even the colorado and rangers are big, like 2000s era f150 size. with todays f150 looking like a 250/350. i get the safety regulations changed but it seems as if every car manufacturer feels that the next years model should just be bigger. it's stupid

When I was 15 I rode my bike or my skateboard everywhere in Hollywood. When I turned 16 my mom's boyfriend gave me a beat ass half running i6 104hp Maverick for my birthday. I carefully fixed each and every problem in that car and then SOLD THE FUCKING THING continuing to ride my bike and skateboard everywhere.

Why in the hell would they bring back that name???
