The Ford Maverick is expected to be a carryover for the 2023 model year. Given that the truck was only introduced in late 2021 as a 2022 model, no significant changes are expected. However, shoppers may find the 2023 Maverick to be their best way to buy the affordably-priced hybrid variant of the pickup.
As reported by The Drive, Ford stopped taking orders for the 2022 Maverick Hybrid around December 2021 due to high demand. As a result, shoppers looking to buy the fuel-efficient pickup may find their reservations delayed and then converted to a 2023-model-year vehicle at some point well into 2022.
The Maverick is a compact pickup smaller than the Ford Ranger with a broader appeal for consumers. With a claimed fuel economy rating of up to 40 mpg, the vehicle is poised to attract non-pickup owners. Unfortunately, the most popular Mavericks may not be available again until the 2023 model arrives.
Separately, the larger Ranger is expected to undergo a major redesign, potentially as a 2023 model. This may entail a new variant called the Ranger Raptor offering even greater off-road performance. Ford already offers an F-150 Raptor and is set to introduce a first-ever Bronco Raptor SUV for 2023.
