The Maverick will not trip on the Ranger’s system-on-body chassis but relatively the very same unibody system underpinning both the Bronco Sport and Escape. That may perhaps have alarmed some compact truck enthusiasts at first, but anybody who’s observed the Bronco Sport’s impressive off-road capabilities thanks to its advanced AWD technique should have no motive to worry. We do not know still regardless of whether the Maverick will arrive standard with AWD but it’ll undoubtedly be optional.

Below the hood, there’s a great prospect the Maverick will share the Bronco Sport’s engines as properly, the 1.5- and two.-liter EcoBoost engines with 181 and 245 horsepower, respectively. The SUV’s 8-pace computerized transmission is also predicted to be carried in excess of. Pricing should start at all around $20,000.
