The Ford Maverick will be entering into a new life soon as Ford plans to bring back the nameplate. Previously sold as a compact car in the 1970s, the Maverick will be returning as a compact truck slotted beneath the mid-sized Ford Ranger.
The new Maverick is still under camouflage but early rumors are already popping up. According to Ford Authority, reports indicate that the pickup will share much with the new Ford Bronco Sport and unlike the Ranger, will be unibody rather than body-on-frame. It is also expected to come standard with front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive being optional), an 8-speed automatic, and the 1.5L and 2.0L EcoBoost motors.
The Ford Maverick is anticipated to launch some time next year. We expect a sub-Ranger price with the mid-sized pickup currently ranges from $25,305 to $39,870.
