Missed Out On Reserving Your Ford Maverick? Well, This Is When Ford Will Start Accepting Bookings Again
A report suggests that the order books for the #Ford #Maverick will open again in the summer of this yearby Isaac Atienza, on
There’s no denying the fact that Ford has recently pushed out a ton of vehicles that were a homerun success. The F-150 Lightning will eventually lead the pack for Ford’s electric vehicle (EV) push and sales of the Mustang Mach-E have also been successful. The Maverick compact pickup is also one such vehicle, and such was the craze for it initially that Ford had to suspend orders for the 2022 model year. But, the company plans to open up the order books later this year. Will you be booking one?
It seems that Ford will once again open order books for the Maverick, but the wait is still quite a long one. According to a thread from the Maverick Truck Club, Ford will open order books once again on August 16, 2022. This is in line with our initial report that the Blue Oval brand will resume orders this summer, but at least now we have a date.
Unfortunately, the dates are also subject to change, depending on the severity of any supply issues by then, including the ongoing chip shortage. This shortage of new vehicles has undeniably led to a bad case of dealer markups, but thankfully, Ford’s CEO Jim Farley has taken a note of this situation and addressed it. He announced last week that his team won’t offer any allocations of the F-150 Lightning if there are dealers who will continue marking up their vehicles.
Part of the appeal of the new Ford Maverick is its accessible size, but mostly it’s because of its affordable price tag and a standard hybrid powertrain that can achieve 40 mpg. This consists of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that makes a combined output of 191 horsepower (though no total torque figure is available), which powers the front wheels via a CVT.
On the other hand, those who want more power can opt for the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo EcoBoost gasoline engine, which produces 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. This can be optioned with all-wheel drive (AWD), while an eight-speed automatic comes as standard.
Unfortunately, as we announced a few weeks ago, Ford has stopped accepting orders for the Maverick since the end of January, which means your only option now is to find whatever’s left in dealers and pray that it matches the spec that you desire.
